Would you like to contribute to KyADAPT without having to spend a dime? Sounds like a TV commercial, right? If you shop at Amazon a lot, you can register your account with a program called Amazon Smiles. It is similar to the way our Kroger Card program works. Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchase to KyADAPT. It does not cost you anything and does not increase the cost of the item you are purchasing. Just search for:

Propelled by a strong performance on the final day of the GoodGiving Guide Challenge,KyADAPT finished the Challenge with $11,229 in gifts from 42 donors.
The $11,229 does not include any matching funds KyADAPT earned from Challenge donations slated to receive matching funds. The amount of matching funds KyADAPT will receive from this year’s donations will be announced soon and posted on this web site.
The $11,229 KyADAPT supporters contributed this year is a significant increase over the $6,340 (excluding matching funds) KyADAPT earned in last year’s Challenge.
This year’s GoodGiving Guide Challenge began on November 3 and ended on December 12. This was KyADAPT’s second year to participate in the Challenge, an online fundraising campaign for nonprofit organizations administered by the Blue Grass Community Foundation.
KyADAPT would like to express tremendous gratitude to the following donors for the gifts they made to KyADAPT during this year’s Challenge:
Anonymous Donors (7 donors)
Joe, Dahlia and John Haas
John and Jan Bradshaw
Mary Kelly Haas
Rita and Arlen Finke
If you believe that Deaf people have the right to live where they can have full access to communication — where they can learn and grow and be happy — this is an opportunity to help make that happen.
Fluent communication is a basic human right — a NECESSITY if we are to learn and get along with each other. KyADAPT stands alone in the state to provide a safe living environment that includes American Sign Language. That is how our clients communicate. To do otherwise would only hold them back from becoming all they can be. We’ve seen all of our clients blossom and develop skills that they otherwise probably wouldn’t have.
The final matching GoodGiving opportunity, the Buzzer Beater Challenge starts on Thursday, December 11 at 11:59 a.m. and lasts until the end of the Challenge (December 12 at 11:59 p.m.) or until the match pool is exhausted. BUT, we encourage you to donate as soon after noon as you can, before the matching funds are all gone.
