The brutal stabbing of 15 year old Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz in the Bronx has caught the attention of much of social media. The hashtag #JusticeforJunior has helped to spread the story and catch several of his attackers.
It also caught the attention of Lala Anthony, who wanted to do something for the family on her birthday. She brought Carmelo along, because Junior was a big fan of his.
The Anthonys delivered a painting and spent time with his family. Lala shared the moment on Instagram and encouraged people to donate to the family.
This is what I wanted to do for my birthday today. Thank you to the gram for connecting me to this family. I wanted to offer our love and support to Lesandro “Junior’s” family. His sister @__octobersveryown__ reached out and told me he loved Melo. So I asked Mel to go with me. I can’t imagine this type of pain and sadness. His family is strong and may God bless them forever. Seeing his family smile when we walked through that door is something I will never forget. Putting my arms around his mom is something I will never forget. Being in his room is something I will never forget. Pls go to his sister in laws page @c0co__amor to donate to this family. (& before it starts…we did more than bring jerseys and sneakers) just do what YOU can even if it’s $1.. this family will be in my heart forever #justiceforjunior #justiceforjunior
It’s a pretty cool thing Lala decided to do for the family of a kid who was senselessly killed. Hopefully the nice gesture helps to ease some of the family’s suffering.
