On Christmas Eve my charity Grungy Gives was born. I walked around NYC to provide food, clothing and warmth for the less fortunate. Everybody deserves to smile during the holidays.
The idea of Grungy Gives was created when I saw Hurricane Sandy devastate my neighborhood. It was an unfortunate memory that always sticks with me.
I would like to give a major thank you to my partners UGG, Andrew Marc, Gillette, Fruit of the Loom, Hershey and Libby for making my charitable dream a reality. Their donations of jackets, sweatshirts, sweatpants, boots, underwear, scarves, beanies, razors, deodorant, canned food, chocolate and more changed peoples lives during this holiday season.
Our hope was to make a few people's lives a little easier during the holiday season. I think we succeeded!
