Rosemary Hanley was being nudged, that's how she puts it. She was being nudged to do something more, something for others, something to help those less fortunate in the city that she calls home and loves, St. Louis, MO. That nudge led to a coat drive which snowballed and 17 years later has Rosemary Hanley leading The Little Bit Foundation, an organization committed to removing the borders between children and education. This year The Little Bit Foundation will provide services to over 11,000 children in St Louis City and some county schools and is continuing to thrive and grow.


Rosemary Hanley was part of this years 2018 class of recpients of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor. The Ellis Island Medal of Honor as described on their website is presented to "individuals who have made it their mission to share their wealth of knowledge, indomitable courage, boundless compassion, unique talents and selfless generosity with those less fortunate."
