Helping the Community:
Nicole Nageli volunteers at a local non-profit human service organization, the Douglas/Elbert Task Force, dedicated to providing assistance to people who are in serious economic need, at risk of homelessness, or in a similar crisis. She is currently writing her 3rd graphic novel, commissioned by the Douglas/Elbert Task Force. She will be donating all sales proceeds from this book to this human service organization.
She donated sales from her book, Kate the Cat's Christmas Mystery, to benefit the Dumb Friends League, an animal shelter that rescues animals and offers animal adoption. This was during the Book Release at the StarLighting Event in Castle Rock on Nov 19, 2016.
Nicole donated a canvas print of her digital artwork titled, "Rediscover", to the Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention and Deep Roots Teen Suicide Prevention, a non-profit mental health service organization. Her artwork encourages everyone, especially teenagers to "Open your eyes to rediscover the infinite possibilities your life can be". Proceeds from the Silent Auction of Nicole's artwork will benefit the services of this non-profit organization.
"What an extraordinary young woman you must be to have accomplished so much at such a young age. Your book, Kate the Cat's Christmas Mystery, sounds like a wonderful accomplishment and we are so happy that it did well at the StarLighting Event. It takes a very special person to be both driven and kind. We appreciate your generous donation not only to the Dumb Friends League but your eagerness to give back to your community."
