Amy Schumer is having a amazing year. We’ve seen her produce and star in the blockbuster hit “Trainwreck,” win an Emmy for her show “Inside Amy Schumer,” and host “SNL.” So when we woke up one morning with a notification from Amy Schumer on our smart phones, we just about lost our minds.
Amy posted a photo on her Instagram and Twitter with Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence, comedian Aziz Ansari, and her sister Kim walking around in Atlanta.
We quickly realized that Kim was rocking our New York Home T! But better yet, Amy wrote below the photo, “Cool thing about being paparazzied is #roadmanager is wearing a shirt to raise money to fight multiple sclerosis get one here www.thehomet.com.”
Amy holds the cause of multiple sclerosis close to her heart. Her father was diagnosed with MS when she was 12 years old. In an interview with CBS, Amy said that that her dad had a big impact on her sense of humor, which has helped her be strong in the face of adversity.
Amy is deeply committed to the MS movement to find a cure and supports the MS Society’s efforts to help people with MS live their best lives. Most recently, Amy and Judd Apatow, the director of “Trainwreck,” helped to raise over $176,000 through the TrainWreck Comedy Tour event held in New York City.
Her movie, Trainwreck, directly reflects her personal life, including dating a professional wrestler, her relationship with her sister, and her father being diagnosed with MS. The movie raised awareness about what it is like to have a family member suffering from the disease.
Last month, The Home T attended a fundraising Gala in NYC for the National MS Society. Amy shared a video with a story about her Dad and her continuous support for finding a cure.
Oh, and when we thanked Amy for being awesome and all her support for MS Research, she retweeted us. No biggie. (OMG!)

In 2011, Beth Donaldson, mother of two and wife of a police SWAT officer, was busy with work and the day-to-day life of raising two children. But when she was diagnosed with MS at 40, she dedicated herself to making a difference. Now she and her husband Mike run Living MS and are launching a charity bike ride to benefit MS awareness and research.
