Favorite Charity: Familia Unida Living with Multiple Sclerosis
Familia Unida Living with Multiple Sclerosis offers counseling and referrals to support services to families dealing with disabilities and debilitating diseases in the Los Angeles area. It's a family-focused nonprofit that serves the community with love and kindness because when someone is stricken with a condition the whole family suffers the impact. Familia Unida offers laughter workshops, an annual wheelchair wash, family exercise activities, as well as traditional benefits counseling in English, Spanish, Mandarin, and sign.
I was invited as a judge for a talent show fundraiser by a friend. I was a board member for 5 years. This year, I made 45 pieces to support the fund-raising activities of Familia Unida. It is my way of sharing my love of jewelry and the love of my community.
