DATE NIGHT VOLUNTEERING

DATE NIGHTREVISITED

DATE NIGHT VOLUNTEERING

February 14th, the day most of us typically celebrate with flowers, chocolates, and dinner; all of which remind us of another date night. Then the rest of us try to do something extravagant and memorable, which usually entails stress, time, and money. If either of these were you this past holiday – there’s still time to redeem yourself on your next date. This year we’ve come up with a solution that’s memorable, fun, and best of all, free.
If February really is the month of love, what better way to spend it than spreading it? Not only is this cheap and easy, it’s romantic and unforgettable. By taking the day to volunteer with your loved ones, you can learn more about each other, feel good, meet people, help your community, and celebrate in the most appropriate way.
Here’s how to get started:
Step 1: Find a place or organization in your area where you can give back and help out.
Step 2: Get in contact with them prior to arriving – that way everyone’s on the same page!
Step 3: Take your partner, friends, family – whomever you want (or if you’re alone that’s great too!), and enjoy the goodness of giving.
Switch it up and celebrate February by starting a new tradition. Save the restaurant nights for another month and try our idea, we think you’ll fall in love with it.

LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD NONPROFITS

volunteer in your community

It’s that time of year again, we’re planning for this year’s round of nonprofits to be featured in our 4-Time EMMY nominated series.

Last year we learned a lot covering nonprofits helping with disabilities and preserving history. This year we’re looking at nonprofits working to provide dental health, help veterans and help animals. That’s at least THREE NEW SHOWS for 2017! If you know of an organization in one of these categories, PLEASE NOMINATE THEM! If you work for an organization like this, NOMINATE YOURSELF!

It’s an easy thing to do on our website and only takes a couple of minutes. We’ll get in touch with each agency to discuss the possibility of featuring them on the show which will air many times throughout the state on several stations including KET. What’s even better, featured agencies will receive a copy of their segment to use for promotion, grants, fundraising, etc.

DO YOUR PART- help a nonprofit by letting us know why they should be featured!

Remember, you can watch past episodes of kNOwMORE almost any day of the week, either on KETKY every Tuesday at 1:30pm est or one of our statewide partner stations in your community.

savs fundraiser videoSav’s Grill has been a Lexington favorite since it opened its doors in 2008. Owner, Mamadou “Sav” Savané, grew up in Guinea, West Africa and eventually moved to Lexington with his wife, bringing the good food with him!

Unfortunately on June 3rd 2014, Sav was pulling a large pot of peanut chicken stew from the stove when it slipped from his hands, the boiling stew spilling all over him. The second-degree burns over half his body sent him straight to the intensive-care unit at the University of Kentucky’s Chandler Hospital.Fortunately for their business, Sav had just weeks before, given up the secrets to his recipes to his son and taught him how to cook them. If it weren’t for that, the business would have been closed.Sav was so loved in the community that everyone offered to help. The love didn’t stop there… Lexingtonians, people from around Kentucky, and even in different countries stepped up and supported Sav by raising over $50,000 in only 36 hours. With the Feast of Love Campaign at a total of $67,437, the Musical Feast of Love 4 Sav- ferabe edition raised another chunk of change bringing the grand total to close to $80,000 according to their Facebook page. Sav has since returned to work and recovered, but is forever grateful.

A story like this shows how much communities can show support and help those in need, just like nonprofits do. WATCH!
