A Great Cause Behind a Great Book!

When Mindy Starns Clark was concluding her last interview with an Amish woman for A Pocket Guide to Amish Life, Mindy asked this woman if she could give the names of a few good Amish related charities.  Mindy and her husband, John, had previously decided to donate a portion of the royalties from sales of A Pocket Guide to Amish Life to an Amish charity.  Well, the woman’s face lit up and she quickly said “Green Pastures.”

Green Pastures is a housing complex, built by the Amish, which is located next to an Amish-run mental health care facility.  So, Green Pastures provides a place for people to live while they are receiving mental health care.  Mindy and John found out that this facility has a sterling reputation.

Plus, John’s professional field is in mental health, which is a great connection for both Mindy and John and Green Pastures.  Green pastures invited Mindy and John to visit and tour the facilities which they did.

We at AmishReader want to say “thank you” to Mindy and John for their generosity and caring hearts!

FYI, if you want more info on Green Pastures and Mindy’s donation, plus a few more fun surprises, visit Mindy at http://www.morefrommindy.com/behind.php#proceeds.
