VOLUNTEER

Join us in helping others. 

Just Because, Inc. has wishes too. We wish to bring joy to senior citizens because their families are gone or don’t visit. We wish to decorate an adult daycare that supports our special needs Lovies. We wish to support organizations that take in and care for abandoned animals. We wish to touch the hearts of the homeless and make them feel seen again. And wishes don’t come true without granters. Thank you for your support and for extending kindness … Just Because.

My name is Katrina "Kat" Ward. I am the wife of an amazing man, Rusty, and the mommy to a truly wonderful (almost) 3 year old, Vivian #theVivinator, and 3 precious kitty cats, Greyson, Mo and KitKat Stinkyfeet. I have held several other titles in my lifetime:  Babysitter, Student, Recruiter, HR Manager, Coach, Big Sis, and Skin Care Consultant are a few. I have now recently added Small Business Owner to the list.  But one of the titles that I am most proud of is Volunteer. 

 

Why I give back:

Many, many years ago I found myself suddenly hospitalized for a week from a massively sick appendix. I was a young (and naive) college kid, and did not have medical insurance. I left the hospital with a bill of almost $100,000.  All I could think about was that I would graduate in such debt I may never recover. Bankruptcy crossed my mind. With the love of my parents and an very generous nanny opportunity, I was able to pay off $8,000, and that was exciting. One day, I was driving to one of my 3 jobs when I opened a letter from the hospital:  "...you have been awarded a medical grant...taking your current bill to $0.00". I nearly passed out in the car, and I cried for days, weeks.  To this day, I don't know where the funds came from, but someone out there helped me BIG TIME. And for that, I am eternally grateful and forever in pay-it-forward mode. 

 

Why I choose Just-Because:

It does not hurt that the founder of Just-Because is one of my greatest friends and previous Co-Heart.  However, that is not the sole reason for choosing to spend my time and resources with them. I believe in the mission of Just-Because, and I believe that giving to others is truly the best thing you can do in life.  As JB mentions in their bio about how the non-profit was founded on a hot day with a request for a cooler, my heart aches with each face I see struggling.  I very easily could have found myself there, seriously struggling. In fact, I think a lot us of can pinpoint a time in our lives in which a wrong turn could have resulted in very different, very challenging results. Just-Because is not simply a non-profit for people in need for food, money, or resources, although a large portion is designated for that. In fact, sometimes the recipients have no idea they are on the list to be blessed. Everyone struggles for different reasons, at different times, and Just-Because is often there to give a blessing...just because.
