Causes I've worked with and made a difference via blogging about: I did a piece in 2013 for Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals on How Heroin Robbed a Piece of My Life. It was about how my younger brother went from a football star to jail. It was probably one of the most heartfelt posts I’ve written.
