*(Los Angeles) — Special Needs Network under the direction of Areva Martin, will partner with D.L. Hughley of the D.L. Hughley Foundation and TV’s Young & Hungry star, Kym Whitley as they embark upon a 4-week journey to collect 10,000 gifts for children with autism, in foster care and other deserving children.
Coming off perhaps the most divisive presidential campaign in modern history, the group hopes this season of giving will encourage individuals and businesses to help create a new tone and focus for a deeply divided nation. Giving to others in need can help to empower one’s self, while easing fears and spreading joy.
“Too many families are frightened about their livelihoods, safety, and security in this post election America. Now more than ever, we need to rally together and show each other love and support. That’s why I’m partnering with Special Needs Network for 4 weeks of Christmas giving. It’s the perfect opportunity to spread joy in the midst of a grey and an uncertain time,” explains D.L. Hughley.
