A note about Kate Bade and her work with Hannah.
First, let me introduce myself. My name is Joel McDaniel and I was Kate's boss for the last nine years. Not only have I had the pleasure of having an employee of such high work ethics, but I have gotten to know Kate and Hannah by way of living in the community and greeting them both at numerous occasions and events. You see, Kate does not simply work her job, Kate LIVES her job! She has made taking care of Hannah her life's mission and has made such a world of difference for this special beautiful child. Yes, she is paid for her work, but the work she does with Hannah is worth 100 times her pay. Kate dedicates and donates most of her own time to Hannah, teaching, caring, and living Hannah's life with her.
This trip she would like to take with Hannah is not a vacation for Kate, but an experience, a once in a lifetime experience for Hannah to see and touch the oceans, the nature, the people. Kate will plan get together with others like Hannah and share their experiences, all while documenting this beautiful story through pictures and words. A huge ice bucket challenge if you will. She will spread awareness of this disease called Autism, and touch people's hearts and souls on the way.
Taking care of Hannah is a tough job. A job that takes all of your attention as she is dependent on Kate for every simple little task, tasks we all take for granted. Kate has told me she will take her on this trip with or without donations. She will spend every dime she has to make this dream happen for Hannah and for the others whose lives will forever be touched by this beautiful duo.
I am reaching out to you all at this time to ask for a small donation if you can spare it. The Rock HHC, employer of Kate, has started off the donations with a $500.00 gift. I challenge all other business' to match our donation. Help make this possible for Hannah. Whatever you can do will be greatly appreciated! God Bless to you all and Godspeed to you Kate and Hannah.
