Viola Davis (The Help) is one of my favorite actresses. Her personal story is both heartbreaking and inspiring. She grew up in extreme poverty, eating out of trash cans, hungry all the time. She put aside the shame associated with growing up poor to join with HungerIs.Org, a partnership between The Safeway Foundation and The Entertainment Industry Foundation, to prevent childhood hunger.
Meeting Viola Davis. Yes, I was nervous! With my friend Candi Schreuders. Her inspiration is contagious–my family made a small donation to HungerIs –contribution levels start at $10. Every dollar counts.
With some of my favorite writers/social media ladies, Sarah Maizes and Ashley Faucet at the event. This is social media at its best, truly.
Super women! Melissa Musen Gerstein and Denise Albert (The MOMS) with Viola Davis. The MOMS hosted a lovely, intimate event at the Hotel Sofitel’s Rivera 31. #HungerIsMamarazzi. Photo: The Moms
