Lauren’s new charity aims to direct awareness and support to families in the greatest need for help. “I have the most amazing and unique job, and I have been privileged to meet so many people all over the world and hear the stories. Some of those stories are uplifting and some of those stories are painful, but all of the stories have touched me and left a lasting impression,” says Lauren. “‘My Kinda People’ is a way we can all come together and donate to those causes that mean something to you and to me. We can each help in our own way.”
