A Brother’s Love

Tyler Bearse loved his sister Katelynn.  Although she was only in his life for 6 short years, he keeps her in his heart and her memory alive.  At this year’s Adult Easter Egg Hunt, Tyler, son of Katelynn’s Closet founder Ann and Matt Bearse, presented his mom a heart warming picture he painted of Katelynn and himself.  This beautiful work of art was a true testament to a brother’s love.

His painting inspired him to make a difference in the world and start a Go Fund Me page to benefit Katelynn’s Closet.

Tyler wrote on his Facebook page: “I’m going to use it to fundraise money for my moms non-profit Katelynn’s Closet through Go Fund Me. Katelynns Closet was created in memory of my sister, who passed away when she was nine and a half from Unexplained Cardiomyopathy. My sister loved everything fashion. We have housed 20+ foster children over the years and almost all of them would come without clothes, and even sometimes shoes. My mom couldn’t stand it, so her and her two friends started Katelynns Closet, and they donate a weeks worth of clothes to needy children all over Cape Cod and the Islands.

So please, I would like us all as a community to come together and give back to my mom who has spent countless hours giving to the community. I’m not forcing a donation; a share on the video is doing just as good. You’re spreading the word of Katelynns Closet, and maybe someone you know would donate. Thank you.”

Just a few weeks ago, we were looking over the barren shelves that house our spring and summer pajamas and our wishes for full shelves were fulfilled once again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Liz Cannistraro of the Pajama Program who delivered almost 100 new pajamas to us last week. We have already found good homes for many of them.

Check out the Pajama Program’s Bill of Rights  and learn about their commitment :”Its five simple principles help Pajama Program and communities everywhere deliver a loving bedtime and quality good night’s sleep to children everywhere.”

Check out the Pajama Program’s Boston and South Coast Massachusetts Facebook page. This wonderful organization is helping us provide the “good night’s sleep” to children in need on the Cape and Islands. Thank you so very much.
