BENEFITING: RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF NEW YORK
Today I went and visited the Ronald McDonald House of New York and was truly inspired. I am performing at the upcoming Gala for the House with fellow classmates from NYU. We were lucky enough to meet some of the children and even tour the house. Our tour was given by one of the most inspiration people I have ever met. She gave us great insight on the house, and told us what its like for families to check in etc. When asked "How do you do it" she responded with an answer regarding the heart. At the house I was reminded how small my problems were compared to the children who were half my size, some even smaller. So it is from the heart in which we do good. And I would like to do anything I can to help these children who have the hope of getting better. If this hope cannot become a reality, they should live their last days to the fullest. So if you are feeling generous and would like to help me raise money for a community based on family and hope- please donate.
