Now, starting February 15, Christine will be donating 30 percent of her sales to Children’s Medical Center Dallas, a place close to home, and close to her heart. Having lived in Dallas for most of her life, Christine seizes the opportunity to give back to that community whenever she can. When she lived in Dallas, Christine spent a couple nights a week volunteering in both the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and playrooms at Children’s. Even though she is now a Southern California resident, this foundation is still of great importance to her. The proceeds raised throughout this promotion will benefit the hundreds of thousands of patients and families served at Children's.
