FLASHBACK FRIDAY: (2010) Uganda - THRACE Gulu
A flashback of my time well spent in Uganda with Eliza and Mama Judy and Jim. I was introduced to Ugandan former child soldiers and victims of the war. They shared with me their stories of struggle and survival. I realized how important the rehabilitation and healing that THRACE offered was a life changing experience for them.
FLASHBACK FRIDAY: (2011)
In August 2011, Eliza and I teamed up with other celebrity volunteers to help serve 300 lunches for The Cheesecake Factory: Feeding America's Hunger by catering a community lunch at Maywood Parks and Recreation Center. It's so rewarding to have the capabilities to serve the community.
