Now, I believe that SHBB Inc founder and CEO Monica Kelsey actually cares about these babies. She may love them. It’s not an act. She sometimes refers to them as “my babies.” She fantasizes occasionally that someday one of these (grateful) kids will grow up and take over the baby box company when she retires. Frankly, I don’t see her ever retiring because it’s much more fun and easier than her former job of firefighter/EMT, and there’s lots of free travel thanks to other people’s dimes.
Here I thought amenities were Scotch in the refrigerator, a fluffy monogrammed bathrobe in the closet, and free toiletries, breakfasts, and gym at the Hyatt. Hershey’s Nuggets on the pillow are also nice. Godiva Truffles, better.
.something was missing. Mrs Kelsey forgot to add that AAA batteries are needed to operate the light packs. Always one to turn someone else’s buck into her own, she came back and asked for battery donations. Order them from Amazon, wrap up your extras, and drop them in the mail.
Currently, 19 Safe Haven Baby Boxes are operating in Kentucky, but that is about to change BIG TIME! Safe Haven Baby Boxes on the march! WRTB-TV reports, according to Monica Kelsey, Founder and CEO of Safe Haven Baby Boxes, that by the end of the year, that number will reach a crackin’ 34.
That’s 80 new boxes on the way spreading like a virus.
It’s one thing to speculate. Another to see it in actual writing, even if we’ve already written that 10 boxes are scheduled for Alabama’s near future. San Antonio, Texas plans to have 10-12 soon! Yes, you read that right! 10-12 baby boxes in one city! A blog about that is forthcoming.
Just when it looked like the legislative season might come to a well-deserved end, except for a couple of bills that don’t seem to be going much of anywhere, along comes Wisconsin.
Why are the more than $1.3 million in grants and state funding never mentioned in the Baby Box Corporation’s website, social media, or annual reports?
Safe Haven Baby Box bigtime booster and former Republican Florida House member Joe Harding pled guilty earlier this week to two counts each of federal wire fraud, money laundering, and making false statements related to obtaining $150,000 in COVID-19 relief funds for dormant businesses–reportedly lawn care/landscaping –he owned.
Catching up on a few odds & ends– not big enough for separate blogs, but information we need to get out.
MEOW!!!!!! The baby box company is NOT in the child placing business, nor should it be. It is not an adoption agency. It is not an adoption law firm. It does not include a licensed social worker on staff. It does not perform home studies. What in the world would qualify it for such a serious task?
