Jack Healey Impressed With Kids
The teens' efforts have captured the attention of world-renowned human rights activist Jack Healey. Healey, former president of Amnesty International, convinced Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel and others to play their hearts out and spread the word for Amnesty in the mid 1980s. Healey continues his crusade as president of The Human Rights Action Center in Washington DC. Jack Healey commented, "These young high school kids from Florida have got it right on. They are kids who are working hard to help other kids, and they were smart enough to understand that "Doctors Without Borders" is one of the best and most efficient organizations in the world at having a direct impact on an area in crisis. It took me a few years to figure out what these teens have already figured out. I sense that they are going to light up their community with their passion, get people motivated and spread the word. I am lending my personal support to their team as is my friend Norman Bedford who is working with them."
