Why I Care

PERSONAL STORIES ABOUT GIVING BACK

The Mysteries of Laura star hits the street to help New York City’s homeless

Winter months are a brutal time in New York City, even if you have a home. So as a proud New Yorker, I teamed up with Direct Relief and Curél Skincare to distribute care packages for the city’s homeless. These were filled with basic personal-care items that we all take for granted. It was very humbling just to see the gratitude in their faces, and it was a gift to me to be there and help. As a mom, it’s really important for me to explain to my son [Roman, 10] what programs like this one are about and to teach by example. He’s very compassionate; he’s gone through his closet and pulled out clothes to give to an orphanage. I want to include him so that he understands that everybody can make a difference. It’s always our obligation to try.
