Today is giving Tuesday, which is o every year observed the Tuesday after Thanksgiving every year. At Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency we are dedicated to give back to our community any way we can. Therefore this giving Tuesday we have decided to donate to a local charity and a nanny that is in need of some support. Both are close to our heart and community. To read more about the charity and nanny we are donating to scroll down. We encourage each of you to consider how you could give back to your community this year. Whether big or small, giving back always makes a difference in people’s lives that really need the support. We hope you and your family are able to give back this holiday season.

Kristen Holstead is a nanny that interviewed with our agency this summer. Kristen is a professional, she is experienced in nannying and teaching, and seems to have a heart of gold. Kristen almost was placed through Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency, until she landed a job as a teacher late this summer. Throughout the interview process, I got to talk to Kristen a lot and was so happy she was following her career path, even if it wasn’t as a nanny. We kept in touch her and there, after she started her job as a teacher and a few months ago I found out that Kristen had been diagnosed with Stage 2A Nodular Schlerosis Classic Hodgkin Lymphoma, a type of adult Lymphoma that is treatable. Kristen is on I believe her 3rd of 8 chemotherapy treatments to fight this Lymphoma. She also had to quit teaching due to her illness, as a simple cold or flu could land her in the hospital. Her and her husband have created a Gofundme page, in response to everyone asking how they could help. This money will go to help pay medical bills for Kristen’s care. We know that she is a fighter and will fight this Lymphoma. We are praying for her and cheering her on for a fast and speedy recovery.

Pierce’s Project was started by a former nanny friend of ours, Lindsay Franks. She had her son pierce who was a micro-premie born at 23 weeks gestation. Since then Pierce has had his struggles with different health issues off and on, but with the love of his parents, doctors, nurses, and his community he has persevered and is a happy, healthy little boy. Pierce’s parents helped found Pierce’s Project to support families of premature or chronically ill infants before, during and after their NICU stay.
