As the daugh­ter of a so­cial worker, Jes­sica Se­in­feld (left), 43, the wife of co­me­dian Jerry Se­in­feld, knows child­hood poverty is no laugh­ing mat­ter. In 2001, she founded the non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion Baby Buggy to pro­vide child­care gear, par­ent­ing sup­port and ed­u­ca­tional ser­vices to fam­i­lies in need with the goal of break­ing the cy­cle of poverty that so of­ten fol­lows from one gen­er­a­tion to the next. Baby Buggy's new Fa­ther­hood Ini­tia­tive was launched when she spot­ted the spe­cial needs of dads. "The men we serve are try­ing to lift them­selves up and lift their fam­i­lies up," says Se­in­feld, the mother of three. "They have a lot that they strug­gle with."
