A philanthropist at heart, Cathy “CaDori” Marshall, is best known for her multiple charitable organizations and efforts: CaDori Helping Hands, Inc. and Dougie’s Kids. On top of her charitable movements today, the entrepreneur-author is most excited for the release of her latest book “Ladies Love Yourselves First That’s Happiness” this coming November.
Cathy Marshall is a philanthropist, author, and entrepreneur. She is better known as “CaDori,” a combination of her name, her mother’s name Doris, and her late son’s nickname Dougie. At present, she is a rising inspirational author for women. She released her first book, “Women Put Yourselves First and Be Happier,” which was then followed by a cookbook. Since then, she has caught the media’s eye and has been featured in several publications, and numerous radio shows such as Melan Magazine, Urban Grandstand Magazine, Plaid for Women Dallas, Kontrol Magazine, Can We Talk source Radio with Myra McKnight, The Ladiez Room Radio with Clarissa, The Covert Report, Shadow Politics Talk Show with Senator Michael Brown and Maria Sanchez, and Bob Burns in Your Afternoon Talk Radio Show.
The mother of five is a registered nurse by profession but spends a tremendous amount of her time volunteering and organizing charitable activities geared towards helping young mothers, children, and everyone else in need. Much of her passion for giving back to the community stems from her story as she was once homeless and jobless for a time in her life. Having to live in a shelter, she witnessed first-hand the struggles of having almost nothing. But with the help of good-hearted people, she was able to lift herself and bounce back. Now, CaDori is committed to giving back to the community and helping more people in the same place she was in.
CaDori is the founder of CaDori Helping Hands, Inc., a non-profit charity established in 2017. Throughout its operation, it has donated backpacks and school supplies to children in local shelters. The charity also held feeding programs helping over 100 people displaced by Hurricane Harvey. In 2018, the organization also provided delicious turkey and ham as well as winter coats for those in need during thanksgiving. Cathy also founded Dougie’s Kids, Inc., a charitable organization geared towards ensuring children’s well-being throughout America. The organization is named after Cathy’s eldest son Bobby Denerio Marshall Brown, whom she affectionately called “Dougie,” who passed away in 2010 from a motorcycle accident. To continue her son’s affection for kids, CaDori has helped shelters, schools, and awarded scholarships in positively impacting children’s lives in any way possible.
Last month, Cathy spearheaded several charitable movements such as the giving away of 100 laptops to help children who are economically challenged and promoting suicide prevention advocacy. This October, she hopes to assist women who are in need of mammograms through The Rose in Houston, Texas.
Today, CaDori is looking forward to releasing her upcoming inspirational book, “Ladies Love Yourselves First That’s Happiness,” on November 15, 2020. As early as now, pre-orders are already accepted at her official website. Essentially, she hopes to help people overcome life’s adversities, whether through her books or charitable organizations and activities.
