The charity, which helps foster youth transition out of the foster care system in New York and L.A., was founded with Emmy-winning casting director Shelia Jaffe.
In a statement to People magazine, Daniel says, “Shelia and I had a dream a decade ago. And now we are amazed and humbled how that dream has turned into a reality. I want these kids to understand that there is no one more special than them in this world.”
The Felix Organization has been supported by the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Billy Joel, Sting and others who are participating in PSAs for the charity.
