When Kristin married Jay, she automatically joined him in his journey to raise awareness of diabetes among kids. The couple made several public appearances to bring awareness, mainly in the Chicago-era of their joint life.
The mission of OneKid OneWorld is simple: to make a difference in the lives of children in need around the globe. One world, one school, one kid, at a time. OneKid OneWorld provides a foundation for education in impoverished communities throughout Kenya and El Salvador by giving children from primary school up through secondary school the opportunity for a better and brighter future.
Our A-list ladies have helped change the lives of hundreds of kids. Stephanie March from “Law and Order: S.V.U” and Kristin Cavallari from “The Hills” have not only raised thousands of dollars and awareness for OneKid but they have also traveled to Kenya and El Salvador to actually volunteer in the schools. These amazing women have taught classes, dug ditches and painted classrooms.. they got dirty and loved every minute of it!

Make-A-Wish makes a huge difference in kids’ lives. When there isn’t a cure, there is still something positive in their lives to look forward to. There are four steps to granting a wish. Each step builds on the next to help create the amazing experiences that delight wish kids and their families. A wish experience is frequently a source of inspiration for children undergoing difficult medical treatments and a positive force that helps them overcome their obstacles. A wish experience is often more than a dream come true: It’s the catalyst that rekindles their belief in themselves and the promise of their future.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), with more than 1.8 million members and supporters, is the largest animal rights organization in the world. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds and other “pests,” and the abuse of backyard dogs.
PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.

Sometimes called Ellis Island’s “forgotten side,” nearly 30 hauntingly beautiful buildings on the Island’s South Side have been vacant, shuttered, and unseen by the public for well over a half a century. These are the former buildings where immigrants in need of medical attention received care. The buildings are in dire need of repair and your help.
Save Ellis Island, Inc. has joined the National Park Service to raise funds to rescue and reuse these buildings. Ellis Island is a great national landmark and irreplaceable American icon.
From 1892 to 1954, the island served as a gateway into the United States for over 12 million people from all over the world. Today nearly 40% of all Americans can trace their roots to Ellis Island.
When my grandfather, Frank, came through Ellis Island in 1903 from Fano, Italy, little did he know that he would later meet Adela, also from the same town in Italy. They married in Big Run, Pennsylvania and raised their new American family. My other grandparents, Peter and Angela, also came through Ellis Island, from Genoa, Italy in search of new life and new opportunity. Eventually my family would migrate East to West, settling in California. I honor my family’s legacy, which was built on the courage and commitment of my ancestors to chase their dreams. I cherish the love and hope that has guided my family’s lives and has made it possible for me today to reach for the stars.
