Miss A Columnist

Hayley Orzech is the News & Opinion Editor for Miss A. She found her passion in writing. She grew up in Detroit, MI and though it has been through the mill, she still has faith in it. She just graduated from Northern Michigan University and believes that you have not seen snow until you’ve spent a winter in Marquette on the shores of Lake Superior. She is in love with traveling and her hope now is to see as many places as she can while pursuing her dreams. She grew up in a large Polish family, full of firefighters. If she has learned anything other than how to not set her house on fire, it is that you can never take your blessings for granted because they might be up in flames before you can blink.

She adores traveling and meeting new people from all walks of life. She reads and writes everyday in between navigating her early 20’s. She's made it her mission to spread the wealth to those who are less fortunate. We are all in this together, after all.
She has had the privilege of adventures like snowboarding down the Rocky Mountains, jumping off of a cliff into clear, beautiful Lake Superior, hearing music on the Detroit River, running down a sand dune into the Au Sable River, looking up at the Statue of Liberty, climbing up a waterfall in Jamaica, letting her fingertips graze over a shark in Key West, hiking in California, gazing at Mount Rushmore, holding onto a giant Redwood tree and so many others that she can hardly believe her luck. All she truly want out of life is to have more adventures while helping others and doing the thing she love to do most: write.

Charitable And Stylish Men We Love: Chris O’Donnell

Have you ever seen a picture of the hottest man alive holding a puppy or a baby and you get the giggles and aww’s and make up an imaginary scenario in which you are the owner of that puppy? Have you ever than found out that that man not only looks hot but is actually an incredibly nice guy who gives back to the world? You’re about to! Chris O’Donnell may not have too many pictures floating around on Pinterest holding a new baby in his arms, but the father of five has never seemed to be overly concerned with the needs of Hollywood. A true family man, the “NCIS: Los Angeles” actor also makes time to give back to those in need.

What can be more important to a father than making sure his children are fed and healthy? The answer for O’Donnell is, not much at all. In 2011, the actor participated with Lunchables and Feeding America, the nation’s largest non-profit committed to ending hunger in the US, when he helped to donate 1 million pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables to the charity. More than 45 percent of all food banks report that they are in need of more fruits and veggies to give to people. To help bring more fruits and vegetables to children, Lunchables introduced the new fruit line in their products and to kick off the movement and Feeding America’s donation, O’Donnell went to Times Square in New York and launched a 100,000 pound fresh fruit donation.

As for healthy teeth for children everywhere, the actor participated with Trident Gum for the Smiles Across America campaign, which helped spread education about tooth decay and how to grow healthy dental habits as well as provided dental care to those who would not otherwise have access. “I’m thrilled to be joining this effort to help celebrate and protect smiles,” said O’Donnell. The actor also is an avid supporter of Saint John’s Health Center and was awarded the Caritas Award in 2009 for his exceptional charitable contributions to the health center as well as transcending generation gaps between Saint John’s trustees and supporters .
