Get your passport ready: Petra Nemcova took us on a sensory experience throughout Mexico! Nemcova and special guest Carlos Slim hosted the "2012 Happy Hearts Fun Land of Dreams: Mexico Gala" last eve at the Metropolitan Pavilion. The doing-good aim? To rebuild schools in Mexico. As in past years, the Land of Dreams Gala is like a jetlag-free global journey, with virtual stopovers in the myriad places Happy Hearts Fund does its work. A next endeavor announced at the event: rebuilding schools in Peru. Besides poignant speeches and such, Marc Anthony performed, as did singers from the Sociedad Internacional de Valores de Arte Mexicano Foundation, plus an 11-year-old student and dancer Stephanie Lopéz of Tabasco, Mexico. Happy Hearts Fund has already built or rebuilt over 70 schools, thus benefiting more than 40,000 children. Inspiration much?
