Local Cause: Just Heart Foundation

by jana on January 29, 2015

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you couldn’t go to work due to a sick child for a couple of days? The stress you feel when your kiddo has the flu or strep or has had a quick surgery can be so overwhelming.

Imagine that fear multiplied by the fact that instead of a few days your displacement from work or “normal life” turns into weeks and months. The stress can take over your life.

The Listen To Your Mother: Atlanta show is proud to announce 
Just Heart Foundation
as our official local cause for the second year. 

justheartlogo

In 2009, Faith and Ryan Winters established Just Heart Foundation, a charity in Atlanta, GA that works closely with associates at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to keep families financially solvent during a medical crisis.

Ryan Winters, the President of the Foundation, says, “Working with Children’s Hospital of Atlanta (CHOA) has offered us an opportunity to assist a variety of families. We have given grants for mortgages, utilities, car payments, deductibles, medical bills and even medical equipment. Every family is different. We have helped families at Sibley Heart Center who needed to take off time from work to be with their child and families at Marcus Autism Center to pay for therapy. The common denominator is that families struggle financially when a child is ill or has special needs.”

The charity’s name reflects the basic principles of justice and mercy: assisting responsible people in the spirit of love. In this regard, Just Heart Foundation embraces the “pay it forward” mentality, by requesting that recipients make a pledge to raise funds for the charity after getting back on their feet. This, in turn, allows another family to receive similar assistance in future.

LTYM: Atlanta is so excited to introduce this local cause to our readers, attendees, and supporters. There’s nothing more important when your child is seriously ill or hospitalized for a length of time than knowing the rest of your life (bills, car repairs, house payments) is being taken care of.

You can keep up with Just Heart Foundation on FacebookTwitter, and their website.

Get Your Stories Ready, Atlanta!

December 16, 2014

You watched from the sidelines last year, not sure you were up to auditioning for Listen To Your Mother. You’ve heard about it for years and imagined yourself taking part in it — standing on stage with your family and friends in the audience, sharing stories of motherhood from your heart — but just couldn’t bring yourself to do it. Maybe you came to the show and vowed that you were going to do this in 2015. Now’s your chance. We are so thrilled to be bringing back Listen To Your Mother: Atlanta for the 2015 season. Right now we’re working on firming up a date and venue and all the other details that go along with creating such an amazing show! But we can’t have a show without stories. And you. We want it all. Young or old. Male or female. Mom or non-mom. Happy or not-so-happy. Any aspect of motherhood is fair game. If […]

After a spectacular inaugural Listen To Your Mother show in Atlanta last year, we are thrilled to announce that we will again “give motherhood a microphone” in 2015! Last year we were honored to have 12 outstanding cast members read alongside us (Miranda Wicker and Jana Anthoine) at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta.
