I want to be a good example to my son Cohen and fill my day with uplifting activities such as helping others and thought this would be a good opportunity to show him that helping others is important. When I was growing up, my family was a host family for a non profit organization called Heart Gift in Austin, Texas. Heart Gift finds kids in developing countries who have holes in their hearts and performs life saving surgery on them here in the US. While they are here they would stay with my family and we would take them to the hospital and all of their doctors appointments. It was a lot of fun and it taught me at a young age to be grateful for what I have and to help others who are not as well off. I also have family in Colombia and have been there a few times to visit. While I am there I see people on the street who are truly living in poverty and it makes me want to do something to help.
