Philanthropy: Mia Hamm tells how charity gives back

Long before Mia Hamm was an international soccer star, she was a helping hand for charity. As a child, the Olympic gold medal winner worked with her parents at a charitable home for unwed mothers. She'd paint and pull weeds. She'd help fix whatever needed fixing around the house. "It's part of the nurturing process that my parents taught me and their parents taught them," said Hamm, who spoke at the 16th Annual Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon in Austin.
