After going through the arduous adoption process from Haiti, my eyes were opened to the severe poverty and hopelessness affecting this country. My husband and I are fortunate to be involved with an amazing organization called mylifespeaks in order to help and give back. We easily forget all that we have been given and blessed with here in America. Freedom. Education. Healthcare. Just to name a few. Not every place in the world lives like we do. However, because it’s not in our face we quickly forget our tremendous blessings.
This coming Saturday we are hosting a benefit concert for Dell Children’s Medical Global Outreach, which exists to send medical care, medications, training teams and more to impoverished areas around the world. Incredible music talent such as Hillary Scott of Lady A, Colbie Caillat, Brett Young, Ryan Griffin and Kelsea Ballerini are all giving up their time and making a tremendous effort to attend. We are so appreciative of them! The medical teams we send are from Dell Children’s ER and Pediatric ER training programs (UT Medical School) and I cannot think of a better way to educate and train our local physicians.
Austin, we sure would love if you joined us this weekend!
