Christmas Bow

Family Abuse Center’s donors come in all shapes in sizes and are inspired by anything you can imagine. This is the story behind a donation Family Abuse Center received for the babies and infants we serve.

Christie is an instructor at the local YMCA. As a dedicated instructor, Christie shares parts of her life with her class. This year seemed to be about animals. Christie and her husband have always had a heart for animals, particularly donkeys.  For Christmas, Christie was surprised by her husband with a pair of miniature donkeys – Holly and Nick. After coming to live with Christie and her husband, both donkeys began putting on healthy weight, but Holly’s weight seemed to continue increasing. After a trip to the veterinarian, it was determined that Holly was pregnant and might be due in the summer sometime. Each evening, Christie would go to the field and feed Holly and Nick treats and check on them.

In her excitement, Christie talked about Holly every time she instructed her Silver Sneaker’s class at the YMCA. Caught up in all the excitement, the class wanted to have a baby shower and meet the new donkey when he arrives.  Christie has had a heart for Family Abuse Center for a number of years and decided to turn the baby shower into a fundraiser for baby items to bring to the shelter. The plan was made for May 23rd to have the baby shower. Happily, Holly’s baby was born on May 20th, just in time for the party! Because his appearance was such a surprise, the baby was name “Bow” because he was the bow bringing the Christmas surprise together. From the clients and staff at Family Abuse Center, thank you Bow and your family for your inspiration and generosity!
