“In 1991, my son Fred, was on the program with @godslovenyc, living with AIDS. After just three short months of receiving meals from @godslovenyc, Fred lost his brave fight to the disease.
I had seen the beautiful meals he had been receiving from @godslovenyc and, when he died,
I said, “It’s payback time.” I have been with @godslovenyc ever since.
For 27 years, I’ve been volunteering weekly and fundraising yearly for @godslovenyc, so that they can continue to help others who need their meals. Every year I participate in the annual #RacetoDeliver, with my team Roz’s Girls. Since we started, we’ve raised over $180,000, which funds over 18,000 meals!
I remember so clearly the food Fred received and I remember so clearly when I first came to the @godslovenyc kitchen, donned an apron, and set to work, chopping and peeling vegetables with the Friday night crew.
@godslovenyc is an essential part of my life. Since my start at @godslovenyc, I’ve tried on almost every volunteer hat, working in the kitchen, in the development and finance departments, at events and on the streets, as an advocate and ambassador for @godslovenyc.
Look for me and my team on Sunday at the 25th Annual Race to Deliver! It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years – I’ll be there with Roz’s Girls, and we’ll proudly walk the 4 miles through Central Park.
I will always deliver for @godslovenyc, as a volunteer, an ambassador and a Racer, truly a loud voice for so many." — by Roz Gilbert via @godslovenyc

kanani alexandria parish
Born on November 22nd, 1998. Kanani, also known as Zombie Princess due to some high school bullies who gave her that nickname, is the daughter of Erika and Owen Parish, a couple of well-known surgeons whose love story is a fairytale which Kanani wants to find her own.
She didn't follow her parents path and became a model, singer and actress so that she could own her agency called Parish Agency (@parishagency) to help other young artists to follow their dreams and be lead to success.
Kanani loves to hang out with her friends and eat churros. In fact, once you have taken her out to eat churros, you've won her heart. Her dream date is going to a theme park, either Disneyland or Universal Studios, and eat churros. She's a churro lover.
She's heterosexual but LGBT+ supporter. Feminist, pro choice. Romeo's lost twin sister. Latina blood runs through her veins, she's fluent in English, Spanish and French would love to learn Italian though. She's a huge fan of Shawn Mendes, Jack & Jack, R5 (rip), Sia & Morat, she will in fact talk to you in song lyrics.
If she was in Grey's Anatomy, she'd date and probably marry Mark Sloan or Zachary Mitchell if she was a character in Jurassic World plus she'd adopt a triceratops.
Kanani likes to think of herself as a girl who always wears black but has a colorful mind. She might seem a little bit cold hearted and sarcastic at first, but she's caring and a cinnamon roll who falls in love too fast and always ends up heartbroken however she's still a hopeless romantic who is looking for the one.
Kanani dislikes players, liars, bullies, cheaters, being left on seen and talking about her past. She wouldn't mind having some new friends so dms are always open.
The sun skims across the horizon at 1am on the frozen Ross Sea, Antarctica. It took years of political negotiation, applications, and approvals to arrive at this beautiful moment in time: this white seascape, painted with the shadows of resilient and powerful emperor penguins, was finally a marine protected area. That was back in 2016. Much more of the Antarctic needs the same protection. But the 2018 Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (#CCAMLR) saw politics overrule science and resulted in no further protection of this beautiful place. I hope you will support us as we increase our efforts to safeguard #Antarctica.
