Holly Robinson Peete

Holly Robinson Peete’s career spans over two decades. She was a favorite in sitcoms like Hanging with Mr. Cooper and Mike & Molly, and later co-hosted NBC’s The Talk. The actress and author is also an active philanthropist and founder of HollyRod Foundation. The foundation, created in 1997, was inspired by Holly’s father who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and her son who was diagnosed with Autism. HollyRod has made several partnerships with larger charities and companies to improve the lives of those impacted by the diseases. “Give the Gift a Voice” is one of many of the foundation’s initiatives that provides tablet computers and specially-designed apps to aid non-verbal or minimally verbal autistic persons with their communication.
