I recently had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Simmons recently in the green room at Good Morning Texas. His passion for this cause is infectious. This man means serious business about raising awareness and helping to “empower through education in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource”. He is enlightening and refreshing.
If you are unable to attend, you may want to consider showing suport by getting yourself a green bracelet. Russell was wearing his when I met him & explained the significance begind it. I got mine. Now go get yours!
