Ian in Redbook!

Check out Ian’s 10 page story in this month’s Redbook.  It is a story about a Northern Kentucky woman who was inspired by and worked together with Malaak Compton-Rock (married to Chris Rock) and rallied local celebrities from the Cincinnati Bengals,  Frostee Rucker and Kyries Hebert, and Bengal Cheerleaders to raise close to $40,000 for homeless women and children.
