Charity wise, Tolson will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of Zephyr the West Wind to charity, and he's encouraging his fans to do the same, listing several but not limited to charitable organizations — Louis Armstrong Educational Foundation, AID for Africa, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Pencils of Promise, Project Medishare for Haiti, City of Hope, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Robinson Foundation for Hearing Disorders — in the hopes of raising millions of dollars in donations.
According to a press release issued earlier this week, Tolson chose the organizations due to "their emphases on education and well being for those around the world in need of someone to trust and guide them in their lives." Fans can make donations through Tolson's company RJTINC and it's official site at RJTINC.NET.
"I am launching Forever Trust Charity because one of the most important qualities that has influenced me is trust, and as such I think that by extending a hand and doing everything we can to help each around the world we can spread trust, which in turn creates hope for everyone," Tolson said in a statement. "The Forever Trust Charity drive directly benefits charities that are making a difference in the world while also trying to help in our own way doing everything we can to promote trust, hope, and humanity. You can ...donate one dollar, or even just a little of your time, because everything will make a difference. Please join me in our quest to raise millions of dollars in an effort to help vulnerable people around the world."
Of course, his Charity Drive & foundation isn't the only bit of good work Tolson has been doing since the arrival of 2012. He recently made a pair of donations to the public; he announced the founding of an online website (blog) where his research within the field of metaphysics will be posted in an effort to spread education and hype interest in the cosmos and beyond; and last month, when Writers World News caught up with Tolson in Washington D.C., USA, he spoke about lending a helping hand to an organization he has a decidedly personal connection to that supports diabetes (which his grandmother had).
"We donated some of the proceeds from my book to a diabetes organization near where I grew up, and it really reminded me of my grandmother before she passed away," he said. "It was an incredible feeling to be there supporting the diabetes organization, just because they were needing a lot of stuff and working hard, so it really meant a lot to me."
