JJJ Guest Blog: Chandler Kinney Opens Up About Helping Children in Need

Chandler Kinney, star of Fox’s Lethal Weapon, penned this guest blog for JJJ about hosting a benefit toy wrapping party at Los Angeles Ballet Academy on Sunday (December 18) in Encino, Calif.

She recently started “Chandler’s Friends,” an organization that sends blankets to children in need. Check out her blog here:

About two years ago, my mom and I were inspired to help improve our society and give back to the community. Thus, we created an organization. At the time, we were not entirely sure about our plans, but we did know that we wanted to help those in need in any way we were capable. It’s always such a nice feeling to know that someone cares for and values you, as a friend does. This idea was the inspiration for the name of my organization, Chandler’s Friends.

We started small. Making hand-made blankets and sending them to foster children was our first accomplishment. We received pictures of each child holding the blankets, radiating joy. It was beautiful and heart-warming. In that moment, I realized how big of an effect a small act of kindness can produce!

Ronni Hawk Isn't Anything Like Her 'Stuck In The Middle' Character Rachel Diaz

Ronni Hawk Isn't Anything Like Her 'Stuck In The Middle' Character Rachel Diaz

Ronni Hawk lets her hair get caught up in the wind in this new pic from her feature in the September 2016 issue of NKD mag.

“Rachel is like the complete opposite of me and so it’s definitely fun and intriguing to play someone that’s so different,” the 15-year-old actress shared about her character on Stuck In The Middle.

Ronni added, “At first, I was actually really worried that people wouldn’t like my character; I thought the viewers might think she’s too mean or too intense but instead, people found Rachel to be funny and reacted really well to her, so that was really cool.”

Ronni is also pictured below at LA Mission’s End of Summer Arts and Education Fair late last month along with Chloe East, Amber Coney, Merit Leighton, Jacob Hopkins, Aidan Miner, Jailen Bates, and Ava Kolker.
