For a limited time every donor of $50 or more will receive a numbered copy of A Pledge to Rescue our Youth, a poem composed by the late Dr. Maya Angelou for Maxine Mimms Academies. Donors giving $100 or more will receive an enhanced copy of the poem on heavy, parchment-like paper suitable for framing with a photograph of Dr. Angelou.
Maya Angelou (1928-2014) was a personal friend of Maxine Mimms. They shared numerous interests, especially a focus on the improvement of education devoted to a better life for all children. Dr. Angelou composed A Pledge to Rescue our Youth and assigned all proceeds from its distribution to the Maxine Mimms Academies in perpetuity.
