Earlier this month I had the great fortune to travel to Medellín, Colombia for Faces of Diversity project team, as part of a team that included my daughter Charlene as the project’s Public Relations Aide, as well as good friends Edwin Gil and Brian Cockman.
If you’ve been following me, you have probably seen me gushing about the project either on my Facebook profile or on my Huffington Post column, but guess what? I’ve saved the best for last! So above is a slideshow with pictures with the true protagonists of the project: The children from the Buen Comienzo Program. One look and you will understand how these precious kids stole our hearts. But careful, you may just OD from the sheer cuteness!
P.S. Poverty is a vey serious problem that affects over 81 million children and their families in Latin America. For those of you who are curious about how to help, a good place to start is the philanthropic arm of the Buen Comienzo program in Medellín, The Ximena Rico Llano Foundation. And please continue to follow Faces of Diversity, as the brainchild of Brian Cockman and Artist Edwin Gil, is now going global!
