  1. I also support I was fortunate to be working for SHF and got to see Danny with the kids when I took a couple of these photos. He is so genuinely warm and caring with them. I had misplaced the group hug photo, but I had to find it for this post. It is one of my favorite Danny photos.

  2. Sophia’s Heart is one of the charities I donate to when I can. I only wish I could do it more often. It truly is a beautiful foundation that Danny and Sophia’s family started. ♥
