Nelson Figueroa Raising Money for Tunnels to Towers.

Around this time every year, I’ll see a day in September that has the eerily blue, clear skies that remind me of the skies on 9/11. It’s one of those sights I will never be able to get out of my head. People are still affected by this horrible day twenty years later and still need help. Nelson Figueroa is raising money for the Tunnel to Towers foundation. Check out what Tunnel to Towers org is all about here.
