NORFOLK, VA (WVEC-TV) -- For Carolyn LaCroy, it was like a dream. In 2008, CNN chose her as one of its top ten Heroes of the Year. And now, this Sunday, the owner of Charlie's Cafe in Norfolk wants to help her continue the work that got her international attention.
Carolyn started a non-profit called "The Message Project". She travels to correctional facilities and allows inmates to videotape messages to their children while they're behind bars -- away from home.
