The beautiful thing about my experience with Arts For All is that in a city like New York and with the everyday grind of being an actor/performer we don't really get that many chances to use our gifts or talents to give back, but Arts For All gives us the platform to do just that. I remember my first time volunteering at The Covenant House reading, playing games and bringing fun songs and music to the toddlers with another volunteer and how amazing it felt to see how much these little children would find joy the minute we walked in and wanted so much for us not to leave. You never know how powerful the expression of Art is in changing someone's life for the better, but Arts For All gives us as artists the opportunities to affect people in a lasting and beautiful way. I find that we all can get a little lost in our everyday happenings but when you take that time to share who you are and give a little back, it brings a wonderful clarity and focus back into my life. So as long as Arts For All continues to give me that chance I will always be thankful and joyous to give all I can to their purpose!
