Nanny Relief Fund
My Appeal
In this crucial time, your generosity holds the power to make a tangible difference in the lives of Sue and Charlotte. The funds raised through this heartfelt campaign will serve as a vital lifeline in multiple ways.

First and foremost, the funds will directly contribute to the mounting medical expenses incurred from Sue's stroke and ongoing rehabilitation. Medical treatments, therapy sessions, and necessary medications often come with a hefty price tag, and your contributions will play a crucial role in ensuring Sue receives the best possible care without the burden of financial strain.

Additionally, a significant portion of the funds will be allocated towards their imminent move to a more accessible apartment. This move is not just a change of residence; it's a step towards creating a safer, more comfortable environment conducive to Sue's recovery. The costs associated with moving and setting up a new home, especially one that needs to meet specific accessibility requirements, can be substantial. Your donations will ease this transition, helping to cover expenses such as moving services, rent deposits, and necessary modifications to the apartment to accommodate Sue's mobility needs.

Furthermore, we anticipate ongoing expenses in the form of caregiving support and other unforeseen costs that often accompany life-altering events like this. The funds will provide a buffer, ensuring that Sue and Charlotte can focus on recovery and adaptation without the added stress of financial uncertainty.

In essence, every dollar you contribute is more than just monetary assistance; it's a gesture of love, support, and solidarity. It's a way for us to collectively shoulder some of the burdens that Sue and Charlotte are facing, allowing them to concentrate on what's most important right now: Sue's health and well-being.

Your contributions are not just donations; they are the embodiment of compassion and community spirit. Together, let's ensure that Sue and Charlotte navigate this challenging phase with the support and resources they so rightfully deserve.
My Cause
The Mission: Nanny Relief Fund's mission is to provide support to the thousands of people working in the United States as nannies in moments of crisis. As nannies, nanny agency owners and people who have spent collective decades growing and nurturing this industry, we were spurred into action at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic when nannies across the country suddenly lost their jobs, their homes, and their stability.

Nannies come from all walks of life, but one key thing we all have in common is choosing a career dedicated to nurturing and educating the youngest generation of humans and supporting families in pursuing their dreams by providing much-needed support to their households.
About the Organization: In late March of 2020, Rachael L. Lubin began seeing more and more people on her social media platforms lose their jobs, their incomes, and become fearful of their immediate financial futures. She decided that as long as she was still fully employed— and as long as the COVID-19 crisis kept so many people out of work— she would donate her Monday paycheck to those in need. Using the song "Today 4 U" from the Broadway musical Rent, she posted a video on social media asking for people to contact her if they had an urgent need for a small, one-time gift.

The following week, Rachael noticed that a tremendous amount of nannies had been using their paid time off and sick leave to adhere to social distancing rules. She then noticed many were losing their jobs as this paid leave ran out. It was then that she realized this crisis was going to affect nannies in a huge way and for the foreseeable future. That day, she geared the peer-to-peer giving towards the whole nanny community. Amazingly, after her March 30th posting, many other nannies were inspired by her posts and joined her in donating a portion of their weekly income to other out-of-work nannies. By this time, other amazing humans were noticing the altruistic efforts Rachael was putting forth. It didn’t take long for her friend Austin Macfarlane to reach out. Within 48 hours they had assembled a core team comprised of powerhouse women in the nanny industry, and a generous group of pro bono professional advisors, attorneys, and a branding specialist.

The Nanny Relief Fund came to full existence with the love and support of this group of “doers” and the team decided to move this effort forward as a non-profit. The non-profit intends to support the nanny community through this crisis and will stand ready and able to support the community in any crisis to come.
