An eleven-year-old girl visits nursing homes and fulfills wishes of residents.
Amanda, who works as a nurse in Harrison, Arkansas, has an eleven-year-old daughter named Ruby Kate Chitsey.
Amanda visits various nursing homes as part of her job. Sometimes, Ruby also accompanies her.
One day, Ruby asked a few residents about their three wishes. She thought people would say money, houses, a Lamborghini.
But, the residents asked for basic things like shoes, electric razors, and their favorite snacks.
Ruby decided to fulfill their wishes and started a charity named “Three Wishes for Ruby’s Residents.”
Ruby and her mother also started a GoFundMe campaign. The GoFundMe page reads:
‘This is the story of Ruby Kate, an 11-year-old raising money to help thousands of nursing home patients who are low on family and low on funds.’
‘One day as my mom and I were leaving the nursing home, a patient named Pearl was glued to the exit doors staring for a long time at something.
I figured whatever it was must be pretty exciting because I hadn’t seen anything exciting all day.So I hurried to catch up to her before whatever this was disappeared. I thought maybe it was a baby bird? A wreck in the parking lot? Ambulance?’
‘I get up there and there is a normal dog being led out on a leash to a car by a normal lady.
That was it! Boring.I asked her what was going on and she said that was her dog of 12ish years. The dog had come to visit for the day and she was staring at the door because she didn’t know the next time she would see her dog again. ’
‘Pearl’s face was so sad. I thought of all the things in this world Pearl could have, she would probably just ask for more visits with her dog. I know it costs $12 for a pet sitter/visit. I’m eleven and I have enough money saved in my piggy bank to get Pearl a few visits with her dog.”’
‘This moment led to my project of “Three Wishes” and I started to raise money help these patients get more “extras” than their $40 dollars can buy.’
Now, Ruby asks residents their wishes and fulfills them as part of her “Three Wishes” initiative.
