Supports Love Our Children USA
November 7, 2005 NEW YORK: Actor Blair Underwood star of numerous film and TV productions that include in L.A. Law and Sex and the City; and currently the voice of the title character in Nick at Nite's Fatherhood, has joined Love Our Children USA's Celebrity Board of Governors.
Blair's proudest accomplishment is being a loving husband and father of three children who keep him in touch with the true meaning of life -- not fame, but family.
When Blair Underwood's young son told him the dream he had about "the last night before there are no more mornings and no more nights," Underwood asked him, "Who told you that?" His son replied, "God told me when he made me, but I only had one ear at the time, so I could only hear a little." Through conversations with family and friends, Underwood discovered how very often people have children who say things that have "left them with their jaws on the floor." As a consequence, he and Donyell Kennedy-McCullough created a Website as a destination for others to share their profound moments with children. The response from people all over the world was tremendous and led to the creation of Before I Got Here, a collection of the best of the conversations and stories from people's responses to the Website, revealing just how brilliant and spiritually in tune our children can be.
Blair is generously donating a portion of the book's proceeds to Love Our Children USA's Kids of Katrina Fund and is promoting the book and Love Our Children USA on a national tour from November 7th - 18th on The Tony Danza Show, Good Morning America, The Martha Stewart Show, WB11 Morning News, Extra, Live With Regis & Kelly and in book stores in New York, Chicago, D.C., Atlanta, San Francisco, Denver and Los Angeles.
This book is inspiring ... a wonderful gift for ourselves and others, showing the inherent wisdom that children possess, with the power to astound us and change our lives.
