A Texas high school graduate, who wanted to make a difference, is showing a great example of just how to give back.

According to FOX 29, instead of throwing her own party to celebrate her accomplishment, Leanne Carrasco hosted a pizza party for homeless women and kids at Houston’s ‘Star of Hope Center,’ providing dozens of pizzas and hundreds of personal hygiene bags.

Carrasco says she wanted to make sure they knew that someone cared.

“It’s very fulfilling to know that I’m able to help others instead of just helping myself.”

“It’s very fulfilling to know that I’m able to help others instead of just helping myself,” she said. “It feels so amazing.”
