Ewan’s Heart Art

Izabela Cruz is the first ever recipient of this new award, for her remarkable compassion, connection, and caretaking for Ewan and his family during his illness. It will be given in future years to other au pairs who go above and beyond the call of duty.

You know the expression, “they broke the mold after making her?” In this case it’s more like, they made a new mold inspired by her.

As a result, Ewan will be indirectly responsible for $1000 worth of good being done every year around the world — directed by the brains of the most selfless au pairs anywhere — for many years to come. I think he would have been pleased.

Please read the story.
