Let Me tell you about "The Boss" The President of the Nonprofit Datcreolesoul is an actual gentle giant named Hampton Isom.
Hampton grew up in New Orleans Louisiana in what was known as the projects. His life was always tough. He says, "My family was on food stamps and welfare." As he grew into a man, he started to figure out what was needed to survive in life. For Hampton it all came back to one thing, Caring.
To expand on his need to care for as many people as he was able to, he realized that he needed help. To get this help he figured he needed to get the public and anyone else that he could get involved in what he was doing. That is when he decided to develop a Nonprofit Organization, that's when the Dat Creole Soul Lagniappe Organization was born. Hampton chose as his focus to feed the homeless because he was once hungry and cold and he didn't want others to suffer that too.
Hampton states, "I look forward to helping as many people as I can, even if that's only feeding one person a day. We all have to eat." He also states' " I'm all in" and he calls each new Event an "Act Of Kindness."
Hampton has a word that he really likes, Lagniappe, which means: "A small gift given to a customer by a Merchant at the time of Purchase." (Such as a 13th donut when 12 are purchased) it is a word from the south (Louisiana) and one that means so much to the gentle giant.
