TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — From the Bronx to the Old Pubelo, Heidi Calderon is making an impact in Southern Arizona by bringing unique children’s toys to store shelves with a powerful message.
“Let's go out and build on other people's cultures and learn about other people," said Calderon. "The people that make up our world is what makes us who we are.”
