What a pleasure it was to appear at the fundraiser "Mothers Helping Motherhouse"! This cause raised funds for the support of MotherHouse Crisis Nursery located on 1603 4th St., Rockford, Illinois. The goal of this organization is to prevent child abuse and neglect, ensuring every child has a safe and loving home. MotherHouse is under Children’s Home and Aid Society of Illinois and has recently had its state funding cut very sharply. Saturn of Rockford and First Northern Credit Union sponsored this event. Judith Loudin, Development Manager, organized this successful fundraiser.

 

Generous citizens and the Rockford radio stations supported this valuable charity with their time and donations.

 

Chris Holaves, the author of Even the Dead Get Up for Milk / Hasta los muertos se elvantan por leche, along with the Spanish translator, Allison Barnard, signed copies of this children’s book published by Astakos Publishing. A portion of the book sales went to this fund. The people who stopped by commented that Even the Dead Get Up for Milk / Hasta los muertos se elvantan por leche has a spooky story and charming art. They liked the discussion questions in the back of the book about a child’s fear of the dark and the suggestions of how the child can overcome this fear.

 

All of this on Saturday was done “for the love of children.”
