A big part of the reason for the invitation is due to the scholarship fund we have set up. It's a measure of how important education is to me, as it was the key reason that allowed me and my family to accomplish what it has to date. Ten percent of all profits from purchases made of Mama's products is being donated to the DeRay Cole Family Award Scholarship Endowment Fund.

The endowment fund provides scholarships for first-generation students who are rising freshmen, majoring in business at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, my Cole's alma mater. Scholarship recipients are selected by a committee. The committee is comprised of the Cole family members and university business faculty. If you wish to donate to the fund, please contact me - monies are paid directly to the university; alternatively, please try some of the products for sale and help support students that way. And, thanks for your support.
