Last year, Nellie’s volunteer Fundraising Chair, Mary Byberg was a recipient of Harlequin’s More Than Words Award and received a $15,000 grant for Nellie’s Shelter.
We are so pleased to announce that Harlequin has now released a fictional e-book based on Mary’s life story that will inspire other women and moms to know that there is a better life after an abusive relationship. This e-book is available from Harlequin to download free here.
Mary has been an inspiration at Nellie’s since 2004 when she started volunteering on the Board of Directors. She has spent countless hours working hard to help raise money for our shelter, and awareness of the issues by speaking publicly about her own life experiences.
Reaching out for help and support from a shelter when she needed it most changed Mary’s life forever. And now, she’s passionate about giving back to the community and helping others find a way out.
This Mother’s Day, make time for yourself to read this wonderful story, and make your donation that will give inspiration, hope and a better future for the moms and kids who are residing at Nellie’s today.
Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Nellie’s.
