Danny Gokey Has a Heart for Kids

If you watched American Idol, you no doubt know all about Danny Gokey, and how he lost his 27-year-old wife, Sophia, last fall.

Sophia always wanted to have a large family. It wasn't to be. But Danny, as a way of remembering his wife and of passing on her love for kids, has created Sophia's Heart Foundation. 

Talk about a lasting legacy. Sophia's Heart Foundation plans to provide at least 24 scholarships this year in the amount of $1,000 to High School seniors in need.

The organization is collecting donations so it can provide food, clothing and shelter opportunities to help families going through difficult times.

The Sophia's Heart Medical Fund will help families with children in need of medical help, but who don't have the financial means to get it. The needs can be as simple as a pair of glasses or a wheelchair, or as great as helping a family who's child needs a surgery they cannot afford.

The foundation is also working on a healing music and art program.

If you and your kids are fans of Danny Gokey, this is a great way to show your support for him and for kids in need. To donate, visit Sophia's Heart Foundation and click on Take Action.
