11 year old raises funds for senior citizens in nursing homes

My hat is off to 11 year old Ruby Kate who visits nursing homes for senior citizens in Harrison Arkansas with her mother Amanda Chitsey who is employed as a nurse at the senior center.

Ruby realized that the senior citizens who stay at the nursing home in Harrison only have $40 dollars to their name to purchase basic items on a monthly basis.

Living on a $40 dollars a month to purchase items like food and clothing is very hard for a senior citizen to live on since it is very depressing for them to live on a shoe string budget.

Kate and her mother Amanda decided to start a project called “Three Wishes” so people who wanted to make donations via the site to raise funds for Kate and her mother to buy the basic needs for the senior citizens living in the nursing center like food, clothing and other needs to keep them happy since living in a nursing home without having their basic needs met.

So far the “Three Wishes” Project has raised $75,000 dollars for five nursing homes in the state of Arkansas. Kate has found happiness making the senior citizens of the nursing home very happy thanks to the efforts of Ruby and her mother Amanda.

  1. Great story. Our NZ rest homes are government funded but the residents are ignored and neglected. The homes provide basic food, not healthy food but basic and some are not nice to the elderly.
    The elderly are often ignored and shoved aside, and often the rest homes are short staffed, so they control the residents by drugging them with sleeping tablets.
    I think its a crime against people
    All of us have to grow old if we are going to live.

    This girl is a star of hope for many. thanks
