Touching Hearts: one child at a time
Touching Heart was founded by Helen Yi and her daughter, Taylor. The women both have a passion for helping people in need. When Taylor was turning 13 years old, she asked her friends to donate to a local charity of their choice in place of a birthday present. Her friends wrote her thank you cards in return telling her how much they loved the opportunity to give back. “I think when I saw all those thank you cards it really inspired me,” recalls Taylor, who is now graduating from college. What began as one act of kindness, blossomed into the Touching Heart nonprofit.
