Well, the dancing queen dream is over and I will not be champion of “Dancing With the Stars.” That’s the bad news. The good news is that by pouring my heart and soul into “Dancing with a purpose,” I was able to bring awareness to the Happy Hearts Fund and shine light on children affected by natural disasters, many of whom are forgotten after the first response to a natural disaster is over.
We are still receiving calls and emails from the DWTS exposure and we still have amazing supporters fund-raising through Monday night DWTS viewing parties. We also have the support of many children who are organizing dance-a-thons at their local schools to raise funds for children less fortunate than they are. I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your incredible care and help to provide a brighter future to children through the Happy Hearts Fund.
I was on the show for over five weeks and the experience would have never been possible if it wasn’t for the incredible support and voting of the GlobalGrind community. My time on DWTS will always give me fond memories and I thank you so much for your support and votes!
Last week I left off talking about building the HHF team. As the core team started to take shape, we realized our most important team members would be our volunteers from around the globe. As we started to ramp up and gain financial momentum, we knew the volunteers would be vital in keeping our costs low, but also, the volunteers would truly put their hearts into making our projects come to life. So it not only made financial sense, but it made us all feel good knowing that the schools were built with not only bricks and mortar, but heart and soul.
