The Mommy Nest’s Storking Program offers a way for parents in our community to recommend that a special "storking" occur for a parent in need here in the Kentuckiana area. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, it is our goal to aid and assist parents in need. We want to hear from our readers, followers and fans if they know of someone who could use a little help, a kind word, or pick-me-up. What is a Storking? While the normal thought is that a Stork delivers those cute little bundles of joys we call babies, our Stork works to deliver special care packages, pick-me-ups, diapers, formula, gifts, meals, etc. that parents in our community may be in need of. The packages our stork delivers may be in the form of a meal for a new mom, diapers for a family in need, groceries for a family going through a rough time, a special toy for a mom who can’t otherwise afford to get her child a birthday present or Christmas gift, a night out on the town for a mother who just needs a date night at a decent restaurant, cards with uplifting words for parents who need some re-assurance, small momentos for those who have lost a loved one, etc. There is not necessarily anything we will or will not specifically deliver, but everything has to be considered in moderation. Please know that requests for a large amount of items and/or items that are expensive or electronic in nature will rarely be considered. Items such as cigarettes, alcohol, pets and gift cards will also not be distributed. Currently, it is our goal to assist 1-3 families a month. This program is not designed for families to apply for assistance for themselves. This is a program where we want to hear from parents who can give us referrals and know first-hand about what the parent they are recommending needs or is going through. If you are a parent looking for assistance for yourself, there are many programs in the Kentuckiana area that are well-equipped to aide you. Click here for more links to area programs or join our Facebook discussion group here where you can ask for specific information on what programs others recommend.
Our storking program is made possible through donations from readers and fans. Please consider donating to our non-profit organization through the button below. If you have items that you think would be good for donations (new, un-opened toys, diapers, formula, clothing, etc.) please email firstname.lastname@example.org
It is very important that we have a way to contact you in case we need further information or have questions.
Your Phone Number
Your Email Address
It is very important that we have all of the information below so that we can make the appropriate delivery when needed. For almost all instances, The Mommy Nest will be making the actual deliveries.
Name of mom/parent/family that you are recommending receive a storking from The Mommy Nest:
Phone number of mom/parent/family that you are recommending:
Address of mom/parent/family that you are recommending:
Email address of mom/parent/family that you are recommending:
Please tell us about who you are referring and why? Have they recently welcomed a new addition? Lost a loved one? Need some assistance? Are they a great parent who does so much for others that you just want them recognized?
Do you know what their annual single or combined income is?
Do you know if your referral receives any other form of aide or assistance? WIC, Angel Tree, Cloth Diapering Services, etc.?
Please tell us what their need is or what you would like their storking to include?
Is there a specific timeframe within which you would hope this storking could occur? If there is no preference to time and you feel as though this family could use assistance or what you are recommending at any point within the next 12 months, please state this as this application will be kept on file for up to 12 months if we can’t fulfill your wish at this particular time.
Do you want the family to know you recommended them or do you wish to remain anonymous?
Although it is not required, we like to have you also list 1-2 other parents in our community who know the person you are referring and know of their situation, so we can also contact them to verify your submission and see that they also think this parent or family is in need of a storking.
Thank you for your submission!
Please note that while all applications will be read, we may not be able to respond to or accept all applications. The Mommy Nest does what it can with the donations we receive and the items we have on hand. Families will only receive assistance from us once a year. If you or someone else has referred this family more than once, and they have already received assistance from The Mommy Nest within the last 12 months, this application will automatically be denied. If they have not received assistance yet, this application will be considered in place of any previous applications. You should NOT CONTACT US at any time to inquire about your application. We will contact you if your application is accepted or if we have questions/concerns/comments. We can’t handle the volume of potential emails that could come in if everyone were to continually inquire. Please be respectful of our time as volunteers for The Mommy Nest and the fact that we are full-time working mothers as well! If you have a specific question about this application or are having any issues with filling it out, you may send your questions to email@example.com with (STORKING) in the subject field.
