Poet, Author, and Business Woman (Entrepreneur) Tasha TNT knows all too well, a hospital can be a scary, cold, and lonely place for a seven-year-old.  When a stranger warmed her heart by giving her a teddy bear during one of her regular hospital stays, ripples from that small act of kindness followed her into adulthood.  In 2011, Tasha realized her dream of paying it forward by founding Poetry in Motion Kare Bears, Inc. (PIMKB). On July 21, 2011 Tasha walked into a Walmart purchasing as many stuffed animals as she could afford. She gathered some poets and independent artist, headed to Children's Hospital in New Orleans and handed out over 50 stuffed animals. Her vision had now became a reality. PIMKB is devoted to "Helping Children Smile through their Pain" Along with volunteers they visit sick children at pediatric hospitals  to give them stuffed animals, gift bags, and hugs... helping them to smile through their pain.   

In 2012, PIMKB expanded its vision to include a special program. "Dream for a Day" which provides PIMKB the opportunity to make the unique dreams of severely ill children come true. PIMKB also host it's annual "Ballin fa Life Cancer Fight" Co-ed flag football event. This event honors cancer Fighters and Survivors, along with Domestic Survivors. This friendly game pulls in players, fighters, and survivors from all over. Their are two teams.. Team Fighters and Team Survivors. The two teams battle it out on the filed for bragging rights along with the main purpose, Playing in honor of loved ones affected by cancer and (To raise funds, and awareness)

PIMKB operates partially on donations, but also creatively sustains itself by hosting poetry and comedy events in the community. Poets and artists from across the country come to New Orleans to perform at PIMKB events and to volunteer their time for hospital visits. All donated funds and 50% of all proceeds from event ticket sales go directly into PIMKB's community work in New Orleans and throughout the Gulf Coast.

In its short but impactful existence, PIMKB has earned the first ever Spoken Word Billboard Award for Humanitarian of the Year in 2012.  PIMKB has reached thousands and will continue to help children and cancer fighters and survivors smile through their pain, simply by doing a small act of kindness. Poetry in Motion Kare Bears, LLC, believes that every day we are blessed to live is another chance we have been given to be a blessing to others.

In 2017 PIMKB started it's Annual BallinFaLife CHD Basketball Awareness Fight to honor the warriors of congenital heart defects. Our first big event was August 19, 2017 in New Orleans at UNO where Team Heart vs Team Soul Balled fa the cause on the basketball court and raised funds to grant the dreams of two children battling CHD.
