“Three Wishes for Ruby’s Residents.”
We are powered by kid activists who are heroes for our elders. We exist to bring joy to the lives of the 1.5 million elders living in America’s nursing homes, most notably the 975,000 residents subsisting on a government stipend as low as $40 per month. We serve all nursing home residents but especially the lonely and the poor. With your help we can make a difference by providing nursing home residents with small items they need to make life sweeter. Learn more about our Kid Board, what we do and how to get involved.
11-year-old expands her charity granting wishes to nursing home residents
At a nursing home in northwest Arkansas, 11-year-old Ruby Chitsey likes to go to work with her mom, a nurse who travels to several nursing homes in the area. And it was on one of those visits that Ruby started going up to residents with her notepad and asking them, “If you could have any three things, what would they be?” And so started a charity called “Three Wishes for Ruby’s Residents.” Steve Hartman reports.
