Personal Quote:

[on the establishment of the charity, "Sanctuary for Kids"] To me, I'm living this great life. I thought there must be some way I can give back. Smaller charities can do a lot. There are places where a small amount of money can make a huge difference. The mandate is to help people who need help. It's a small drop in the bucket, but it's a drop. And it is making a difference. See more »
