Kathi Cares Program

Published September 25, 2015 by lynn k scott

I am officially on my way to implementing my latest veture.  If you haven’t haven’t followed along, up until now, I had come to a decision to start a new program.  I outlined it, briefly, in “A Program is Born”.

Yesterday, I created a new Facebook page, called the Kathi Cares Program.  The goal is to become a non-profit organization within two years.  I believe that will give me sufficient time to gain a following, raise the money associated with filing as a non-profit and gain a network of support to make this a reality.

My sister was always helping people.  As a teen, she would take in her friends if they had issues staying at home.  It wasn’t uncommon for my mom to have a bunch of kids at her house that weren’t hers.  When my sister became sick with breast cancer, people came out of the woodwork to help her and my family.

A local girl scout troop dropped off meals once a week, others watched her daughters while she had treatment, friends would drive her to appointments when my mother couldn’t and then there was the support from friends.

I know not everyone is lucky enough to have that type of support when they are sick.  I know the worry of making ends meet, esp. if not working because of an illness.  Government programs, while they are out there, are packaged in this brilliantly beautiful, yet strangling, red tape.

I may only be able to initially donate $100 (hopefully more) in gift cards for gas, food or buy a pre-paid Visa for household expenses, at least it will be something to put a smile on someone’s face, let them sleep a bit easier for one night or make one worry disappear, at least for a little while.  As a society, the “community” aspect is disappearing.  Growing up in a small town, I am working to bring back “being neighborly”.  It’s a shame that concept has fallen by the wayside.

As Michael Jackson once sang…

“I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you want to make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change”
