While making a commercial for the new 2020 Ford Escape, Ford invited two awesome nonprofit organizations to get a behind-the-scenes look at all that goes into the collaborative process. The organizations, Made In Her Image, which empowers girls of color in filmmaking, and Girls Make Beats, which does the same for girls in the music industry, got the chance to shadow Ford's "Built Phenomanally" campaign. It's so important to encourage creativity and inspiration at a young age, and this empowering on-set experience is doing exactly that.

You can get more information on Made In Her Image's upcoming events on their Facebook page.

Charity Bailey Talks Grief And 100 Pound Weight Loss In Her New Web Series 'Girl, We Need To Talk'

RTM viewers took notice, and now Charity Bailey is sharing her weight loss journey and the issues that led to her impactful new web series, "Girl, We Need To Talk." After the loss of her father back in 2018, a new chapter began in Charity's life — one that has been particularly difficult to navigate. In May 2020, she underwent a vertical sleeve gastrectomy and has since lost over 100 pounds. From processing her grief to committing to weight loss, Charity's transformation is certainly much more than skin deep. On each episode of "Girl, We Need To Talk," Charity invites guests to engage in honest, vulnerable conversations about the highs and lows of their own life journeys. She's come a long way on many levels and now she's helping others do the same. Call us biased, but we think Charity Bailey is pretty awesome.
