The campaign only lasts until October 5th.  I can’t guarantee future runs, but will do my best if there is enough interest.  Don’t forget family and friends, just in time for the holidays.

 

How You Can Be A Hero

The Nest in Lexington, Kentucky

As many of you know, I am a proud benefactor of charities that help our wonderful animals. You’ve probably seen me post my support for Friends and Vets Helping Pets. However, I also support other organizations that help people dealing with domestic violence, such as Bethany House and Greenhouse 17.

I have brought these matters up numerous times in my books as part of the plot. It was especially poignant in Built for Power. Domestic abuse affects people from every race, sex, and socioeconomic status. Recently, I got a note from a reader who works at The Nest in Lexington, KY. Having been in Lexington, Kentucky for 35 years, I had heard of The Nest but never learned much about them. The reader invited me to come be a story time hero and read to the children under their care. I looked them up and immediately knew it was a great cause to support.

The Nest provides childcare for parents that need to go to work, to school, or appointments to provide for their family. They also offer childcare in case of emergencies. Not only do they provide support to the children, but also to the family as a whole. Their building houses a childcare facility, crisis care center that provides emergency assistance, domestic violence counseling, and relationship recovery workshops for victims of domestic violence, including children who have witnessed or endured abuse in the home. Not to mention, they also provide self-help parenting classes to both mothers and fathers that reach out for assistance.

Two weeks ago, I visited and spent the morning reading to the children at The Nest. What polite and attentive listeners they were! I was so impressed with the level of care they received and how the organization worked as a whole that I wanted to share how you could help as well.

I know many of us want to help in more ways than just writing a check (which is also good and definitely needed!). If you’re in the Lexington area, then I hope you will consider volunteering to sort donations, help clean, or if you’re blessed with the ability to use tools, help with fixing odds and ends. I was also shown a beautiful courtyard that they hope will one day feature a nice mural. I am not artistically inclined with painting, but perhaps you are. Or perhaps your baby has become a toddler and you have leftover, unused baby items. Or if you are a traveler who collects all those shampoos and conditioners from hotels that are sitting in a drawer, those can certainly help. The Nest depends on the generosity of its donors to sustain and build its programming. Here is a list of items that they are always in need of:

  • Diapers
  • Baby wipes
  • Formula
  • Baby toiletries
  • General toiletries
  • Nonperishable food items
  • Office Supplies
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Clorox wipes, cleaning supplies, etc.

Thank you for reading and I hope you visit their website and see how you can help.
