Hot, hot, hot! Juan Pablo Galavis, the star of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” was looking for true love on the popular reality show and was often seen taking off his shirt for the camera and for the ladies. One thing Juan Pablo didn’t take off, however, was a bright orange rubber Step By Step Foundation bracelet that he hoped would also capture the audience’s attention. Over the past three years the handsome bachelor, who is a single father, has played an active role in helping his friend, charity founder Liliane Stransky (who is also the owner of Stransky’s Mission Farm), spread the word and gain attention for children in need around the world. Juan Pablo and Liliane are hoping the equestrian world will follow suit and also wear the bracelets. Order a bracelet at www.stepbystepfoundation.com or find Liliane and fellow supporters at the horse shows! Photo courtesy of ABC/Craig Sjodin
