The Survival to Thrival Tour, which looks to provide support to assistance centers in 15 cities across the Southeast in 24 days, is scheduled to stop in the Baltimore/Washington area Jan. 23 and 24.

The tour, headed by real estate guru and philanthropist Frank McKinney, will provide assistance to those in need, according to a press release issued by McKinney.

In Washington, McKinney and his custom RV, decorated to advertise the tour, will appear at the Central Union Mission on R. St. at 5 p.m. Jan 23. In Baltimore, he will appear at the Bea Gaddy Family Center on Chester St. at 1 p.m. Jan 24.

At each location, he will share his inspirational message with those in need, provide some direct financial assistance to those in need, distribute gift cards and make a donation to the Center, based on the number of people who attend his speech. According to McKinney’s website, he will give the centers $25 for each person who attends his speech.

McKinney will also trade places for a night with a person or family, providing the comforts of his RV or hotel room, while he sleeps on the street or in a shelter.

According to the website, McKinney will embark on the tour “to show how close most of us are…either to losing what we have, or to taking the first step necessary for getting back on our feet and thriving in this great country.”

McKinney is scheduled to begin the tour on Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 16, in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Other stops include Jacksonville, Fla., Charlotte, N.C., Richmond, Va., Philadelphia, Newark , N.J.; New York, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Nashville, Tenn., Atlanta, and Orlando, Fla. before the tour concludes in Delray Beach, Fla. Feb. 8
