Feel so lucky to have an evening like this, to spend with people with hearts like mine, who want to change and save lives at any cost! There’s so much to do, and I can’t do it all by myself, so I have to thank all of the supporters of and people who donated to #TheClaraLionelFoundation Looking forward to seeing you later this evening.
