Enrique Iglesias Got A Sweet Thank You Message From These Mexican Preschoolers Because Of His Help
For several years now, Enrique Iglesias has been using his fame and platform to help those in need. He has supported several charities, including Habitat for Humanity, City of Hope and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Save the Children is the latest charity Iglesias has put his support behind and last Friday night at his Las Vegas concert, Iglesias got to meet — via a video message — some of the children he helped.
Singer Enrique Iglesias is helping children find peace and calm after major disasters and emotional distress through art.
Iglesias has helped raise money for the Save the Children’s Healing and Education through the Arts (HEART) program, which focuses on helping children deal with highly stressful situations, from natural disasters to deaths in the family. Iglesias has been a supporter and fundraiser for Save the Children since 2015 and his latest campaign, #Hearts4Kids, has helped one pre-school class in Mexico City, specifically.
While on tour, Iglesias has been selling T-shirts to raise money for Save The Children.
During his Las Vegas stop on Friday, the kids got to thank the singer for his help.
The students from Mexico City recorded a video message to thank Iglesias for his help.
Before the show, the “thank you” video was delivered to Iglesias personally by Sheila Romero, the director of the school.
Iglesias can’t hold back his smile as he watches the video of the children thanking him for his generosity. While watching the video, Iglesias reaches out and hugs Romero.
Backstage, Iglesias signed shirts and hats for the children who have benefited from the HEART program in Mexico City.
The moment was captured on camera by Save the Children, who facilitated the moment.
HEART, with the help of celebs like Iglesias, is helping thousands of children around the world overcome their personal traumas thanks to the power of art.
One of the children that has benefited from HEART is six-year-old Marina.
Marina needed help to cope with the sudden loss of her grandfather, who was her closest family member. His unexpected death severely impacted her and negatively affected her performance in school. Marina benefited from not only writing letters addressed to her grandfather but by drawing pictures of him as well. According to a Medium post, her teacher and family saw Marina slowly open up about the pain she felt and eventually, she was able to overcome the sorrow she felt about her grandfather’s passing.
