Philanthropy is just one of the ways Erica Rose Sanders wants to stay connected and help her community when she is not busy doing everything else in her day to day life. She has pursued this passion ever since as a teen while volunteering with her mom. It has been said that the Rose family are an example of down-to-earth generous citizens that help everyone no matter what their background is.
Erica Rose has always been one interested in English and Creative writing, as well as theater. To pursue her theater dream, she then went on to star on “The Bachelor” as well as an appearance on “Ellen DeGeneres”.

During her time at the University of Houston Law Center, she was President of the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund. She has completed a summer clerkship and moved on to running a successful law firm, Rose Sanders Law with her husband Charles.

Erica and Cindi both got heavily involved in the The American Pulmonary Foundation, which was founded by Erica’s grandfather.
Speaking of family members, the whole Rose family created the “Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation.” In honor of Erica’s aunt Holly. This foundation was created to help those in need who cannot afford reconstructive surgery after undergoing certain types of treatments for cancer. The foundation has expanded their outreach in other new ways to assist both children and adults, with the creation of the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation Scholarship Program. Currently the foundation is working on creating and providing wigs for cancer survivors and scholarships for those who have lost someone to cancer.
