We are so excited to be chosen in the #LoveYouCaring Campaign and to the reach of Katelyn's loud love! We continue to honor and celebrate Katelyn as this week would have been her 6th birthday.
Katelyn loved to serve others. Taught and modeled from a young age by her family Katelyn truly knew what it meant to love others to the fullest and she did so by loving as loudly as she could! In honor of sweet Katelyn and the one year anniversary of her going to be with Jesus we have created a way for people to love loudly to a local organization close to the Neureiter's hearts in a way that Katelyn will love.
The Love Loudly Day will honor Katelyn by collecting funds to purchase new books for Family Promise of Hendricks County. While Hendricks County might be one of the most rapidly growing areas in the country, this growth doesn’t mean everyone in our community has a roof over their head. Approximately 236 school-aged children in Hendricks County are homeless right now.
Katelyn had a true love of reading and would want all kids to get the opportunity to enjoy it like she did. Jenny spoke of that love saying, "Katelyn would read to anyone who would listen, dad, mom, Brayden, baby doll, animals whoever". Many of these children have never had a book to call their own. What a way to honor Katelyn, by rallying to provide new books for these children. These books, most likely the first new one they have ever owned will be a gift for these children to have as they are in transitional housing and move into their permanent homes.
Family Promise has a proven track record of successfully addressing both the short-term needs and long-term solutions. Across the country, nearly 80% of families that Family Promise serves find permanent housing.
If you would like to sponsor a kid (or more than one) -‐ because of the help of my commissions and the match program of my company, Usborne Books & More, it is only $20 to sponsor a kid to receive $30 worth of books. (Our $5,000 goal would allow us to provide books to every homeless child in our community).
Brayden, Katelyn's loving older brother has always led the way in teaching Katelyn to give and he is still tackling that mission head on. Brayden will be selecting the books that will be donated as well as personalizing each with a message from him and Katelyn.
February 14th is a day of love... a day to remember and honor the legacy of Katelyn. It's Katelyn's day....it's Love Loudly Day!
Thank you in advance for joining in this project!
