Tina Charles begins her fourth season with the Connecticut Sun. She joins the Morning Extra to talk about The Tina Charles Heart of Hope Foundation, which she organized in memory of her aunt who died of multiple organ failure.
Tina established The Tina Charles Heart of Hope Foundation (TCHH) in memory of her aunt Maureen “Hopey” Vaz, who died on March 9, 2013. The TCHH Foundation will host a grant program to supply eligible schools or recreational centers with life-saving Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) equipment.
Charles has already donated $14,775 of her own money to purchase 10 AEDs and she has pledged to purchase one new AED for each double-double she records during the 2013 WNBA Season. She has the two highest single-season double-double totals in WNBA history.
