A super talented woman, Kara Vallow is the animation producer best known for her work on the series Family Guy, American Dad, The Cleveland Show and Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. She has been nominated and won numerous awards for her work, and I love that her political satire posts from TeenSleuth.com appear on HumorOutcasts.com as well. This week I chatted with her to talk about an organization close to her heart, Compton Jr. Posse. For more than 20 years, The Compton Jr. Posse, has given inner city kids hope by teaming them with horses. Through these equestrian activities, youth develop responsibility, discipline and self-esteem. Students learn to set and achieve both academic and career goals. There can be no better investment in their future.
This year, HO got to help out in an exciting way. Knowing I had Mary Farr and Noah Vail and Never Say Neigh in our HOPress “Stall,” I thought there is no better book that goes along with the Compton Jr. Posse philosophy, so Never Say Neigh will be in all the gift bags at this year’s fundraiser on May 16th. Compton Jr. Posse relies on donations to keep its numerous programs going. Check out the site and see why it is such a wonderful organization! Listen below to the interview by clicking on Kara’s name.
