Megan Cohen / Team Grace Project
Megan Cohen, who is in recovery from opioid addiction, had been through 70 treatment centers, was homeless, and was in prison. Megan reports it was the kindness from complete strangers that planted the seed of hope, helping her to become a healthier and happier person. Because of this she began a non-profit, The Grace Project, that helps to restore grace and hope to those in need in Philadelphia by doing random acts of kindness for others.
