Lehocky on PCDaily

Did Ron Lehocky think we’d celebrate Valentines Day without featuring the King of Hearts? Not possible.

His production of polymer heart brooches reached 25,801 yesterday and if you multiply that by ten you’ll have calculated how much this Kentucky doctor has raised for kids. You helped him by donating your scrap.

This year he also set his sights on helping the Samunnat women in Nepal and he was relentless. He knows how art can make a difference in lives and how the significance of bit of effort ripples out as others join in. Love to all who were part of that effort this year.

Ron used Lucy Struncova’s extruder disks to make this special edition of heart patterns. He has finally jumped onto social media and shares his methods and his news on Facebook.

          I have been hoping for a Ron Lehocky Heart post all week. This was a perfect start for Valentine’s Day. What a super person he is. Thank you Cynthia for this perfectly timed posting . XOXOX !

            Ron is the best! I met him back when he was working towards a goal of 3,000 hearts! It’s amazing what he has accomplished. It really is true that “it is better to give than to receive”.

            I’m wearing a heart necklace that Ron made and I have a dozen of his wonderful heart pins as a Valentine’s display centerpiece on my kitchen table. I’ll grab one to put on my jacket as I head out the door this morning.

              Just learned about you and your work recently, Ron, and I am awed and humbled. I want to be just like you when I grow up! Have a BEAUTIFUL! Valentine’s Day with all your friends and family. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with at Cabin Fever, either! And…thank you for all the work you do on our behalf!

                  The ladies of Samunnat wear the hearts that started a building with such love and joy! Thank you Ron, Cynthia and all who contributed. The word on the street is that windows are in, water is about to become ted and the final move is expected for the end of next week. We will arrange a heart bedecked group photo for about one month’s time. Hugs to all, Wendy and Kopila!
