Laura and her philanthropic work

In the philanthropic world Laura’s work was recognized by the prestigious Wall Street Journal. Her work in this area started when at the end of the 90s, Laura’s son was born with Craniosynostosis, which inspired her to create The Jorge Posada Foundation along with her husband Jorge Posada (now retired All Star catcher for the New York Yankees) to raise awareness about this condition and help others going through the same situation. The Jorge Posada Foundation joined the MyFace Foundation in 2012, where Laura has been a Board Member for the last 18 years. Her activism and solid work were recognized by President Obama on April 2011.

LAURA POSADA: BRAND AMBASSADOR FOR WONDERFUL PISTACHIOS

A perfect partnership!

I teamed up with Wonderful Pistachios because they are great tasting snacks, which are good for a balanced and healthy diet.

  • A serving of Wonderful Pistachios is a source of protein and fiber (they contain 14 grams of fat per serving).
  • With Wonderful Pistachios you can have it all, without compromising: They satisfy your cravings for something tasty and crunchy without compromising your goal of eating healthily.
  • Conscious eating: As pistachios come in a shell, this can help to control consumption. The empty shells can serve as a visual sign, reminding us to eat consciously.
  • Ideal snack: Pistachios are a great alternative to snacks which are high in sugar and saturated fats.
