PAUL STANLEY HONORED BY OPEN HEARTS FOUNDATION
Last night Paul was an honoree and recipient of the Open Hearts Foundation 2015 Award for his charity work.
PAUL STANLEY – Mending Kids
For more than 30 years, Paul Stanley has reigned supreme as one of the single-most recognizable front men in the history of rock and roll. Although preferring to live his off stage life out of the media spotlight he continues to be the chief songwriter, driving force and unwavering voice of KISS.
Off the stage, Paul has shared his personal experience with the birth defect known as microtia. Microtia is a deformity of the outer ear and for Paul it resulted in additional loss of hearing on his right side.
Now aligned with Mending Kids, Paul is directly involved in both raising funds to pay for needed surgeries for children afflicted with various birth defects including microtia and giving support to the parents of those children. Mending Kids deploys teams of volunteer surgeons and recovery staff to developing countries to perform free life-saving or life-changing surgeries and teach locals to build sustainable programs. American children receive free surgeries from volunteer doctors in California, and children from outside the country are flown here for more complex procedures. www.mendingkids.com
