Special thanks to Scott Lacritz of Dallas for going above and beyond to support the work of Rick Hodes. This outstanding 12-year-old hosted a garage sale to raise money and awareness for Dr. Hodes’ work with children in Ethiopia. The proceeds will benefit Rick’s current goal, raising money to correct the spines of 16 Ethiopian children. Who says kids can’t make a big difference? Just take a look below!
Great work, Scott! THANK YOU!!
