You can help The Sparrow’s Nest buy ME! I’m an empty house just waiting to become a home for teen moms who need a safe place to stay!



Hi there!

I have a dream.

I have a dream that one day soon, my bedrooms will be filled with young women who need a safe place to stay as they wait for their babies to be born. In my kitchen, loving adults will sit around the table with teen moms, helping them with schoolwork and teaching them how to properly care for their little ones. My family room will be filled with warmth and laughter as these young women find the support and encouragement they need to make positive choices for themselves and their babies.

I suppose I could be bought by someone else. Maybe an average family looking for more space, or a bachelor planning to fix me up and sell me for a profit. But deep in my foundation, I know I was built for something more.

You are the key to unlocking the greatness that exists behind these walls.

Right now, I’m sitting here vacant, doing nothing. Once in a while, I see a driver slow down, squint at my “For Sale” sign, and then keep on going. But that’s OK, because I’m waiting to become something amazing: the home of The Sparrow’s Nest.

And when my doors open next year, I’ll be a maternity home for teen moms in  St. Charles County. It’s enough to make my shingles tingle with pride!

Word around the neighborhood is that you’re already a supporter of The Sparrow’s Nest. That’s fantastic! But I’m going to need some more help if I’m going to be ready to take care of these moms and their babies by next summer.

By returning these with your tax-deductible donation to The Sparrow’s Nest Maternity Home—or by making a secure online contribution at http://www.thesparrowsneststl.org—you will get me one step closer to making my dream come true.

You can help TODAY by sponsoring

A coat of paint= $25

A washer and dryer (gotta keep those little onesies clean)= $1000

An entire bedroom= $25,000

 But the most important thing is for you to do what you can—NOW. Right now these young ladies have nowhere else to go . . . and I’m just sitting here empty.

Yours truly,

Future Home of The Sparrow’s Nest

Who doesn’t love a party? I personally love pulling together a large crowd of friends, serving fabulous food, and moving in and out of their conversations and laughter while they are doing something really fun.

But is just another event. It probably doesn’t have life lasting effects on anyone. We’re all just waiting for the next time we can get together.

The Sparrow’s Nest is gearing up for its next big event. We are proud to be stretching ourselves to host the 1st annual Sparrow Scramble at the Mid Rivers Golf Links on October 1, 2011 at 8 a.m. It’s just $75 per player with out a shirt if you pay before September 10.  We hope this will be another hugely successful fundraiser to move us that much closer to getting the house, hiring the staff, and opening by next July in St. Charles County. We’ve also added the Sparrow’s Club, an elite group of participants who will be raising additional funds for us through individual fundraising efforts. We will be hosting a free dinner for them on Sunday August 21 at 5:30 p.m at Sherlocks in Cottleville.

But it is just another fundraising event. It is just one more fundraising event that will not really have any lasting effects on most of us. But I really hope you can keep in mind that even though it is just another event all of our fundraising efforts will have a direct long lasting effect on the young girls we plan to help in the next year. It may seem like relaxing day on the green but the dollars raised will help save a baby’s life.

We are looking forward to spending a fun day playing golf, hanging out with friends, and maybe making a few memories. But more importantly we really appreciate how your participation and sponsorships will provide more funding to help get The Sparrow’s Nest off the ground and flying. Then we can really get to the task at hand.
