Two weeks ago I have returned from my first trip to Puerto Rico. And I have returned very inspired. The Foundling's Early Head Start programs there are led by wonderful and very dedicated team and the children that they serve are in real need of this program. While in San Juan, I visited two centers (Foundling had 42 locations before Hurricane Maria hit; more than half of them are now back up and running) in some of the poorest neighborhoods where the devastation is even more real. Seeing smiles on the faces of the children, hearing them sing and seeing them play and learn have once again reminded why we do what we do.
On April 15th I will be running my first half marathon -- SHAPE Women's Half -- and I will be running for Foundling PR! If my story inspired you and you want to support our programs in Puerto Rico, please donate, any amount can help change a child's life!
