Here at Rewarder, helping others is a daily goal. For one of our members, Jamie K., helping out is just part of her routine. As a machinery worker and mother of two, let’s just say that her skill set covers a large amount of terrain.
But Jamie didn’t stop there. In 2012, she co-founded a non-profit organization called Asha’s Refuge, which helps refugees settle and adjust to a new life in Tennessee.
We’re proud to have her as a member of our community.
Recently, we spoke to Jamie about her experience with Rewarder, her non-profit, and what drives her to help others. Check out our conversation below.
What do you like most about using Rewarder?
Replying to posts on Rewarder has been an interesting new hobby of mine. It has been neat to be able to use the experience I have to help find answers to frustrating life situations for others.
What type of Rewards do you normally seek out? Is there any type of question in particular that you love to answer?
Having a background in machinery, I am always eager to help people fix broken products that aren’t working from sewing machines to printers. I also like helping people with life situations I have experience with such questions related to Social Security.
Would you tell us a bit about your non-profit, Asha’s Refuge?
It’s very hard to function in America if you do not understand our social system, have never paid bills, cannot read or write, cannot drive a car and do not have a way to get to and from places like the doctor or grocery store. Many of the refugees we serve have disabilities, are single mothers, mothers of multiple children, widows, or young adults. Most all of them have never been educated, cannot speak English, have little to no job skills and truly need a helping hand. You can read more about it online at www.ashasrefuge.org.
Is there anything in particular that you use or plan to use your Rewarder winnings for?
I would love to think I could continue to use my skills to help others even in my spare time. Perhaps my Rewards can be saved up and I can continue to give back to others in more tangible ways.
Pretty cool, huh?
