"Being apart of the Zig Zag Foundation is important to me because of so many reasons. Kids are the future and we need to especially help children in need. Their lives are thrown into mayhem and if we at Zig Zag can help in anyway, we do. Raising funds at our events to go towards helping kids get their lives back on track, which is so important. So please get involved, come and join us at one of our events and let's make a difference - together."
