Quoted on the home page of The Hamels Foundation is Ghandi: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Heidi (a former Survivor contestant) and Cole Hamels (who pitches for the Texas Rangers) practice what they preach. Besides working in the U.S. in inner cities, the foundation is dedicated to helping citizens of Malawi, Africa – one of the most impoverished places in the world. In fact, the foundation has already built a school there. But the couple has gone beyond helping the masses to reaching individuals. Cole and Heidi added to their family by adopting a beautiful little girl.
Cole shares their experience, their love of children, and their beliefs in this news video.
