Miss America Working With Teddy Bears of Hope Foundation
"I am absolutely thrilled to be working with "Teddy Bears of Hope" in their efforts to bring encouragement and support to the children of Haiti! Having been to Haiti and experienced firsthand all that the young children there go through, my life has been changed forever. Many could never even fathom the circumstances that individuals around the world find themselves in, but the good news is: we can do our part to change that! Through programs like "Teddy Bears of Hope," every person, no matter their age or background, can contribute to encouraging those less fortunate through simple acts of kindness. Simply giving a child a teddy bear with a message that lets them know "We care" can have an astounding impact. Each and every person has the ability to positively impact their world through their words and actions. It's time we step up and make a difference in our communities, country, and world!"
