Nina Ratcliffe holds her birthday card, which was made by the children at the NCVO’s foster home.

(CNS): A community-minded teen displayed the true spirit of giving when she asked that, instead of birthday gifts, donations be made to the National Council of Voluntary Organisations’ (NCVO) Nadine Andreas Foster Home. Nina Ratcliffe recently celebrated her 14th birthday by requesting her friends and family donate to the foster home. In all, she raised $575 for the children at the home.

Nasaria Chollette, Foster Home Care Manager, praised the teen’s actions. “What a beautiful way to share with others as well as to set an example for her peers on the joy of giving. Nina is a girl we can be proud of,” she said.

The NCVO runs several Children Services programmes. To find out more about the NCVO or to help those in need, visit www.ncvo.org.ky, call 949-2124 or email ncvocoordinator@ncvo.org.ky.
