With the holidays in full affect, numerous public figures and celebrities are trying to get in there good deeds before the turn of a new year. NYC radio and TV personality Egypt is no exception, but is upping the ante a bit by making her philanthropy an eventful week. And enlisting some pretty big heavy hitters to lend a helping hand

Egypt Sherrod continues to spread holiday cheer to the tri-state area’s residents who are in need the most by embarking on the 2nd Annual “Egypt’s Give Back Tour” taking place from
November 28-December 3, 2011.
Created in 2010 as the inaugural activity of the non-profit, Egypt’s Cares Family Foundation, Egypt’s Give Back Tour is a 6-day coat, toy, and fundraising drive. The goodwill tour will be anchored by a daily
5-hour radio live broadcast originating from locations in Brooklyn, Bronx, Harlem, Queens, Newark, NJ, and Plainfield, NJ (heard locally via 107.5 WBLS-FM and worldwide via WBLS.com). With the support
of the public last year, Egypt’s Give Back Tour received thousands upon thousands of coat and toy donations for New York Cares, Jersey Cares, Hudson Cradle, and The Children’s Aid Society.
“The goal for the Egypt’s Give Back Tour is to inform the public of how we all have an opportunity to make a difference. Something as small as a gently worn or unused coat or a new toy brought someone
happiness for the holidays. I thank the public for responding to the call of action and look forward to this years’ Egypt’s Give Back Tour being even more of a success!,” says Egypt.
Egypt’s Give Back Tour 2010 drew out the support of celebrities and notable politicians that include: Real Housewives of Atlanta/Warner Bros. Recording Artist-Kandi Burruss, Actress-Malinda Williams, Notifi Records Recording Artist-Ginuwine, Bronx Borough President-Ruben Diaz, Jr. and Newark’s Mayor Cory Booker.
“After a great 1st year, I’m excited that Egypt’s Give Back Tour returns with an extended 6th day in order to reach our listeners in Plainfield, New Jersey. Her idea is simple, but the effort is BIG! Helping local charities from Brooklyn to Newark is no easy task. But after seeing the support from WBLS listeners last year, we are excited to be back in the streets for a full week of live broadcasts in support of the less
fortunate the week after Thanksgiving! My only wish for the Season is that Egypt’s wonderful effort will inspire others to do the same,” says Skip Dillard – WBLS Program Director.
