DoSomething.org spoke with Lucy Woodward in a Q&A, where the singer songwriter talked about her travels to Africa to raise money to help families affected by HIV, meningitis and the genocide. “I first went to Nairobi 13 years ago,” she said. “It made me realize that there is a whole other world out there beside my own. I began going back there every few years and each time I went back I knew that I had something to give. As a performer, I know it’s easy to be self absorbed, going to other countries made me realize that my life can’t be just about me. I believe it’s important to help the people there help themselves, by giving them knowledge.” The full story at dosomething.org has since been removed.
