We support the efforts to save this historical landmark, educational and community center. We are days away from missing out on a crucial matching grant to purchase the house and green space. It’s been a devastating blow with all fundraising efforts halted by COVID19, and we are still in need of the public’s help to raise the necessary matching funds to purchase the home and green space from the original family and restore the home to its former glory.
Proceeds of your donation goes to the nonprofit who will then purchase and refurbish the house! If preserving history and the environment mean something to you and your family, please donate NOW. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

We hope you enjoy a quarantine parody version of Disney’s beloved song "Let It Go," entitled, "Wash Your Hands," written by veteran elementary teacher, Marion Ambrose, complete with home videos submitted by fourth graders, their teachers and principal at Holy Name of Jesus School! Since the crisis, their class service project to support the efforts to save Green Gables had to stop, with the pandemic, so they hoped doing this video would bring smiles, joy and awareness to everyone.
Holy Name of Jesus elementary teacher, author and President of the nonprofit Green Gables at Historic Riverview Village, Marion Ambrose, has been trying to find ways to stay connected with her students and fight to save a 124 year old house from demolition in her county, during this world-wide crisis.
Marion is a STEM teacher and some of her fourth grade students, took on saving Green Gables, a 124 year old house used for an educational and community center, as a class service project. The children have donated over a thousand dollars to saving Green Gables, with various fundraising events, including the screening of, 'Forgotten Enchantress', a 30 minute documentary telling the story of Green Gables, created by another nonprofit, bUneke.org, information available on GreenGables.org Marion, who has been practicing social distancing and working from home amid the crisis, said she was inspired to write the parody after a recent lesson with the children on the importance of throughly washing their hands, even before the announcement of the pandemic. In a fun ‘hands-on lesson’ she encouraged the kids to make ‘bubble gloves’.
Marion said when she wrote the song for fun and shared it with her fellow teacher, Jan MacKay, they both thought the kids might like to participate in a video helping other kids get through this time and together help share their passion of saving Green Gables, a favorite place to learn and experience history first hand.
With help from of bUneke.org editor of 'Forgotten Enchantress' film, homemade videos were collected from the children and the song was recorded by two talented ladies, Lynn Dilks and Anna E. on home equipment. Even HNJ Principal Kathi Falk, and both teachers have cameos in the video! It is shared on social media with family and friends with the hope to spread, important safety messages, positivity and continued support for saving history with Green Gables. Here is the quarantine parody version of Disney’s beloved song Let It Go, entitled, Wash Your Hands. Enjoy!
