“Launching the Pete and Thomas Foundation is easily one of the most significant endeavors that I’ll ever be part of in my career,” Megan said in a statement, according to Complex. “My family raised me to help others and give back, so I’m incredibly proud to be in a position to accomplish that goal. I have a responsibility to use my platform to make a meaningful impact in the lives of those who may not have access to resources and support services.”


She further added in a tweet: “I really wanted to make my mom proud, I really wanted to make my grandma proud. I wanted to make myself proud. You know, how can I help something, like what can I do to make a change?”
