(JAMAICA STAR) — When the coronavirus first started to affect Jamaicans back in March, Romeich Major was one of the first influencers to jump-start give-back initiatives. To date, the artiste manager and businessman has helped more than 700 families with essential items. On Mother’s Day, Major and his team at Romeich Entertainment gifted 22 mothers with cash, groceries, and other essential items.
Major told THE STAR that having seen first-hand how many mothers struggle to provide for their children daily, he wanted to make the burden easier for some, especially on a day like Mother’s Day.
A SPECIAL WEEKEND
“It was a special weekend, and so I wanted to reach out and see if I could put a smile on some more faces. I said I wanted to help 20 mothers, and I ended up helping 22, and based on the reactions, I’m sure we made their day a lot easier,” he said. “All of them were happy. Some we helped with food items. Others, we helped to clear up some bills for them. Some just wanted some money to do something special on the day. Others wanted baby items. This one person wanted a baby walker, and so I bought it for her. Whatever the need was, we tried to meet it because every mother should feel special, especially on the day dedicated to them.”
Major said he understood that with the coronavirus running rampant in Jamaica, the usual celebrations for many on Mother’s Day had been thwarted. Still, he wanted to make sure the day was still special.
“We wanted to show that in spite of what’s happening, we still appreciate mothers and the work they do,” he said. “Me just did wah make sure say dem see di love same way.”
