Good Giving Challenge is Nov 30-December 6th!
This year AppalReD's Giving Tuesday and Good Giving Challenge fundraising will go directly to benefit and serve the legal needs of children in our communities!
This is our first year participating in Bluegrass Community Foundation's Good Giving challenge and because of this partnership your dollars will go farther. Every day of the challenge there are different ways for your donation to be matched. Donations must be made on www.BGgives.org/appalred for the opportunity to be matched.
When you give on AppalReD's page from Nov 1-Dec 6th (or from 11/20-12/6 on www.BGgives.org/appalred) you will also be entered into a raffle to win an American Girl Doll. Fittingly, “Melody” grows up during the civil rights movement and lifts her voice for equality.
A donation of any size will enter you into the raffle and help so much!
$10: Provides three picture books along with family friendly legal advice

AppalReD Legal Aid Society Launched
This September, AppalReD Legal Aid received a generous gift from the estate of Ragan T. Phillips. Remembering AppalReD with a gift in his will ensures that his legacy will mirror his life in its dedication to justice.
Phillips grew up in Lawrenceburg, KY. Later his career took him around the world, before settling in Ashland, VA to be closer to his daughter and grandchildren. There he ran an online newspaper, helped build a local theatre, and was a passionate supporter of education. His wife, Phyllis Thoreaux, is a force for good in her own right and worked with AppalReD founder John Rosenberg and his wife Jean at the Department of Justice in the 1960's.
While we wish we could thank Ragan for his generous spirit in person, we will show him gratitude the best way we can, by stewarding his gift to sustain and grow AppalReD Legal Aid.
Please join Ragan as a founding member of the AppalReD Legal Aid Legacy Society.
