Please Know...

As I come to know these fine people, they share with me more of their personal and sensitive stories. Their collective story is what I am trying to share with you as my way of breaking the stereotypical beliefs that exist. "Blog names" have occasionally been given to me by the person whose story I am telling. Names are never their actual names and wherever I can do so, I might use the opposite pronoun (his/her, etc.) just to help increase their privacy.

Throughout this blog you are now seeing advertising. I need to provide this so as to keep going financially with this ministry. If you see something that is inappropriate to this site, please let me know - maybe get a screen shot of it for me. I do get credit for any "click" that you might make on any of the ads. If you're bored some night and want to help me raise some needed cash, visit my site and click away to your heart's content....

Ministry Funding Options

While I do very much appreciate your ongoing prayers for my efforts in Kensington, I am very much in need of your financial support as well.  There are several ways that you can send funds to me in support of my efforts.


  • Zelle is the most efficient way for you to send funds.  
  • This is a service that most banks offer through online banking.  
  • There are no fees for either of us which means that all of the money you send gets to me.
  • Your contribution is automatically deposited almost instantly to a bank account that I have set up specifically for my efforts in Kensington.  
  • Your contribution will come to me with your name (as listed on your account) so I will know it is from you.  
  • Your account numbers are not listed on the transaction.
  • To send funds to me through "Zelle," please use my email address:

Cash App

  • If you are a Cash App User, then all you need to do is go to what you're used to and enter my cash app name: $ChristopherWBattin  (That's all one word with no breaks.)
  • I will be instantly notified of your contribution by text.
  • I transfer the funds to my Kensington bank account for a very small fee.
  • Here is a link to my Account which is titled "Your Helpful Neighbor":  
  • There is a nominal fee to me associated with this process.


  • Contributions through Venmo should be sent to @Christopher-Battin 
  • I will receive a notification that a donation has been made by you.
  • I will manually initiate a transfer to my Kensington Ministry local bank account.
  • This transfer takes one or two business days to complete.
  • There is a nominal fee to me associated with this process.

Facebook Fund Raisers

  • I occasionally post a Facebook fundraiser.  
  • These are fun, easy to use and popular.  
  • Funds donated minus a service fee will be automatically deposited to my designated bank account about one week after you make your donation.


  • I occasionally do a "GoFundMe" in a time of increased immediate financial need.


  • Checks may be sent to me at this address: 765 Baltimore Pike, Apt. 3A, Glen Mills, Pa, 19342
  • Checks should be made out to "Chris or Christopher Battin with the memo line referencing this ministry.
  • Please let me know that a check is on its way so that I can be sure to look for it and inform you of its arrival or possible loss in the mail.  Sending a text to me at 610-368-2038 is probably the smoothest way to notify me of this.

Direct Purchase of Typical Items

  • From time to time, people purchase and deliver to me cases of water and other items such as medical supplies, hand warmers, mylar blankets, and more.  Please call me at 610-368-2038 to make arrangements.

Thank you for your prayers and financial support.

"Your Helpful Neighbor" is not set up as a 501 entity at this time due to the expense involved in that process.  I do keep detailed financial records on Quicken.
