Kate's Heart: Touching Lives

Join us in our literacy projects supported by friends, family and donors. We provide Little Free Libraries, literacy packs and support dance lessons and costumes for children who otherwise would not have the opportunity.

Kate, who died unexpectedly on September 15, 2015, lived life fully and intentionally.  Every person Kate came in contact with was honored by her gentle kindness. She was an advocate for people who struggled because of circumstances beyond their control. She was devoted to God and her church.  Our mission is focused on four areas:

K- Kindness (projects to spread kindness and care in schools, organizations, or church)
A - Advocacy (projects that support kids who are marginalized by systemic and/or social issues)
T - Togetherness (projects that support fellowship, community, and intentional relationships)
E - Education (projects that support education of parents, caregivers, and/or volunteer child care workers)

Will you join us to continue her spirit and heart to benefit others.   As a certified 501(c)3, your gift is tax deductible consistent with IRS regulations.
