Uganda School Update

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

nopic

Description

Uganda schools are again closed. This time for 42 days. It is truly unfortunate, since all the BCP-sponsored students board at school and are safer there. Covid is taking its toll on student morale. Now is a wonderful time to sponsor one of the students on the website. They need a boost. Schools are set to re-open on July 19th and to learn of a new sponsor would be the gift of a lifetime. Their futures are in the balance. Contact Jan Tanis for information or check out "The Children" at BwindiCommunityProgram.org.

Sedona's Homeless Families Need Your Help

See all wishes from Hope House of Sedona

Description

Did you know there are homeless children living in Sedona? Hope House of Sedona is a 501(C)3 working to provide transitional housing for Sedona's homeless children and their families. Our goal is to have Hope House open by the end of 2021. After receiving a HUD grant through the City of Sedona, along with a two-year fundraising effort, we now have the funds to begin construction but we do not have sufficient funds to open the house. Before we can open the doors for residents, we're asking for financial donations for furnishings, appliances, landscaping, security system, and operating funds.

Because Hope House is not yet open, some families are currently spending the cold nights outdoors. As we have previous winters, we have been able to put some of these families up in hotel rooms on the worst nights. When we hear about families that need this care, we are always scrambling to find money and housing. To better address this situation as it arises, we have decided to start the Hope House Emergency Shelter Fund. We are asking businesses, community groups, individuals and other organizations to please consider contributing to this fund.

Please support us in providing safety, security, and a better future for Sedona's most vulnerable children. You can assist in this journey by sending a check to Hope House of Sedona, 54 Bowstring Drive, Sedona 86335 or donate online at www.hopehouseofsedona.org. Please specify if you would like to designate funds to the Emergency Shelter Fund, otherwise the funds will be used for the other purposes listed above. If you have any questions, please email us at hopehouseofsedona@gmail.com or call 928-852-0001. Thank you!

Give a gift that keeps on giving for a lifetime. Bwindi Community Program has a secondary student, interrupted during his first year by the Covid-19 school closure, who needs a sponsor. He will go back to finish that term in January of 2021. The relationship developed during sponsoring is amazing. Secondary school is a huge step for a rural student. Watch his maturity develop while getting to know this student, his culture and his dreams. Go to BwindiCommunityProgram.org and look at Byamukama Derick on the Children's Page. The rest of the students have recently been sponsored. Call Jan Tanis to discuss the possibilities; a team to support him, etc. The Christmas spirit lives in these children!

Happy Thanksgiving to all who have supported Bwindi Community Program over the years. This is a crazy year, but one in which we have much to be thankful for. The graduation candidates are back in school in Uganda. This test of in-person learning with all the WHO precautions is proving to be safe. It is a group of 103 at Bishop Comboni secondary school vs full enrollment of 650. The students will be able to graduate; a few months late, but it is safe, so far. We expect the full student body to be back in school in 2021 if current conditions hold. Hooray!!!

The June 2nd date for re-opening schools in Uganda has come and gone, with a delay imposed of 30 days. Many schools have day students and teachers that commute to the classroom each day.

Students who are at home working to keep up their studies, will face additional costs to do research online, etc. The Children's Aid Fund is Bwindi Community Program's source of help for these students.

At Verde Valley Humane Society, we are committed to upholding a high standard of care for every animal at our shelter and to make every effort to give each animal a forever home.

With veterinary costs continuing to rise, and more animals coming in every day, your donations are more critical than even before.

Your gift today can help ensure the most vulnerable in our society - the ill and injured, the lost, the unwanted, and the orphans - always have a safe place to go when they need it.

Funding for a Spay/Neuter and Medical Clinic /Seeking Veterinarian

Description

LOOKING FOR A VETERINARIAN AND FUNDING FOR ANIMAL WELFARE SPAY/NEUTER MEDICAL CLINIC IN NORTHERN ARIZONA (VERDE VALLEY)

Giving of ourselves: our time, love and compassion to the animals in need is what is most important to us at Red Rose Inspiration For Animals as we have been providing free services to felines and canines in this community for over 10 years now. However, we are limited to the amount of animals we are able to service?

We have been instrumental in the Verde Valley. Focused heavily in Camp Verde, Rimrock, Cottonwood and Cornville.

We are unique as 501c3 in animal welfare as we don’t have a facility and our focus is not taking in animals and adopting them out. Although we have done it in the past and on occasion we will still do it but our specialty is providing se
rvices in animal welfare.

With all the animal organizations in the Verde Valley we try to be particular and service the community in which we live on a different level as it wouldn’t do the animals any good if we all did the same thing. Fortunately, the one common goal we all have is to spay and neuter and make a difference in the over pet population as that is the most important goal for all of us universally. That is what we at Red Rose believe makes the biggest impact within our community.

TNR (Trap Neuter Return for Feral Cats) is a service we have been providing regularly since 2012. We have compassionate, experienced volunteers who set the traps and transport these kittens/cats to the vet and then return and release them back to their environment. Young kittens caught early enough are vaccinated, treated medically, altered and adopted out an experience that is life changing obviously for the better.

At Red Rose we assist homeless animals with emergency medical care. All animals including feral cats involved with Red Rose are treated for any medical conditions before being released. When pet owners on a
fixed income find themselves experiencing an emergency situation with their companion animal they are not always prepared to even cover the cost of an exam let alone medication and testing. With our help many pet owners have mentioned “they were able to keep their pet instead of having to give them up due to the cost and treatment.”

Red Rose has assisted hundreds of pet owners (especially seniors) in dire need so that they don’t further delay the animal having to suffer due to financial challenges.

We also assist with free spay and neuter services of felines and canines. Not only assisting pet owners who can’t afford the low cost spay neuter clinics in our community but also homeless animals that are either trapped or found as strays by kind compassionate people that are struggling financially and can’t take on the necessary veterinarian cost. Before moving any animal into the next phase we always encourage individuals to spay and neuter and offer financial assistance when they are in need. Spaying and neutering litters of kittens and puppies and the adult dogs that contributed to their existence whenever possible.

Red Rose has reached an obstacle in animal welfare as we currently NEED more working veterinarian partners or our own veterinarian as we are having to send some animals needing services to Flagstaff and Prescott. We feel if we had our own veterinarian and clinic we could do more.

We need more veterinarians willing to provide rescue pricing as we have pet owners wanting and desperately needing the services for their pets, not to mention the homeless animals.

The unfortunate part is many of the veterinarians in the Verde Valley are not willing to provide discounted services and that is a real obstacle for us because pet owners that are financially challenged needing emergency services have practically nowhere to turn if we don't have veterinarians willing to assist us. Many of the people we often assist don’t have credit cards and many try to apply for Care Credit at the veterinarian’s office only to be denied. Then what? Their animal is not serviced and is left to suffer. This has and continues to happen quite often.

Another problem is many veterinarians will not provide services to feral felines so they will not assist us with our TNR program either. We have had to cut back drastically in the last 24 months on the services because of this situation. You are probably wondering have we reached out to all the additional veterinarians in the area……the answer is yes and multiple times, with no luck. Thankfully the Village Vet Clinic in the Village of Oak Creek and Danza Del Sol has been helping us out but our need is greater than the amount of animals they can possibly see. .

Animals left to continue to reproduce often wind up abused, injured, or neglected as shelters across the country are filled with animals that are euthanized daily due to over pet population as we simply can’t adopt our way out of this problem.

Perhaps we will be fortunate to find a generous, retired, veterinarian willing to volunteer their time to helping our mission or we will be fortunate to open a clinic in the future. We encourage our supporters to help us find a veterinarian either a volunteer or a new professional to the area or one that is contracted.

When you support Red Rose 100% of the proceeds from our fundraising efforts from the Red Rose Thriftique, Red Rose Barkin Basement and our Red Rose Art Shows go to the overall mission of Red Rose Inspiration For Animals. 100% of a monetary donor’s donation goes directly to assisting the animals. No administrative cost or salaries as we are a small, volunteer based organization making a huge difference in the lives of animals throughout the Verde Valley.

On our 990 throughout the years we have a 99.98 percent rating for public support which we are quite proud of, as with us it’s all about servicing the animals. We are asking for anyone passionate about our mission to help us continue the work we do. We are most grateful for all we have accomplished through the years and continue to accomplish. Thank you for sharing and supporting us.

Two Students in Need

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

Description

Bwindi Community Program is asking for help with sponsorships for students who have lost sponsors recently. Situations change, death interrupts the plans, etc. of sponsors who have taken students many years toward a bright future. There currently is a student in Midwifery school for whom there is no support for her final two years. A secondary student needs funds for her last two years in high school. Unlike sponsors who take on a student for up to ten years, these are short term needs. These students are close to the end of their studies. Help at this point is key to their futures. SW rural Uganda is poverty stricken and these students are almost independent. Help them to complete their studies. Visit BwindiCommunityProgram.org "The Children" page for one student's story or call Jan Tanis at 928-204-1135 for more information on either student. You can make a terrific difference!

This project, which will benefit an entire district in rural SW Uganda, will impact not only the school, but also the neighboring hospital and local residents. A reliable internet connection is priceless in this remote area. Couple that with a Library full of books and the world opens up! See the Stories and Photos page at BwindiCommunityProgram.org for a tour and a place to donate. Call Jan or Jim Tanis at 928-204-1135 to talk about ways to help.

Books for the New E-Library

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

nopic

Description

The new E-Library on the secondary school campus in rural Uganda is almost open. Just a bit more cleanup! We appreciate all those who helped make this possible. To complete the facility, we are raising funds for much needed textbooks and research books. The rural students cannot afford to purchase books for their courses. They use the shared texts in classrooms but must leave them behind when the class is over. In this new study space for 64 students, it will be wonderful to have appropriate texts available for them to use. The cost for books ranges from $10 to $150 each. You can provide a gift to this E-Library that will bolster education half-way around the globe. Go to BwindiCommunityProgram.org or call Jan Tanis at 928-204-1135 to donate. The smiles in Uganda will be radiating all the way to Sedona!

Give the Gift of Love to Animals

Description

Give the Gift of Love through FREE Spay/ Neuter Helping Felines and Canines in Need.

At Red Rose we have always believed Free Spay and Neuter is the Solution to Over Pet Population. For years, when only a few local organizations were providing low cost services we were offering FREE Spay/Neuter Services all along. In addition unknown to many pet owners we at Red Rose were sponsoring to have their animal spayed or neutered for FREE through those low cost clinics and organizations.

As we still continue to offer FREE services today, the need for free services continues to grow today due to extremely limited or suspended low cost clinics in the Verde Valley in the past year and half. We need the communities help to keep up with the demand.

Our targeted areas of focus are: Camp Verde, Rimrock, Cornville and Cottonwood.

In August and September Red Rose has spent a total of $5,036.34 on programs assisting 52 cats, 20 dogs and 1 rabbit. In October, November and December 2017 we spent over $3,700.00 with 25 Spays, 22 Neuters and 8 Emergency Medical Situations ......

The cost included: Emergency Medical Care, Spay/Neuter Services for homeless animals and assisting pet owners on a limited budget. In addition to Special Pet Prescription Food and TNR (Trap/Neuter Release of Feral Felines)

With 9 programs in animal welfare it’s often difficult to fund every single program and continue to keep it fully funded.

Support a small volunteer based animal welfare organization, Red Rose Inspiration For Animals. As 100% percent of your donations go towards the animals in need. No administrative cost or salaries.

Please consider making a donation today as your contribution is most needed and appreciated.

Tax deductible checks can be sent to Red Rose Inspiration For Animals, P.O Box 74, Sedona, AZ 86339 or visit the website at www.redroseinspiration.org or visit the Red Rose Thriftique at 41 Bell Rock Plaza in the Village of Oak Creek to make a donation.

Give the Gift of Love and Help to a Homeless Feline this Valentines Day

Red Rose Inspiration for Animals is in need of additional funding for it's ongoing TNR (trap/neuter/release program which rescues feral cats). Our need throughout the Verde Valley continues to grow and funding is low.

In October, November and December 2017 we spent over $3,700.00 in assisting homeless animals and pet owners in need. The cost included Emergency Medical Care, Free Spay/Neuter Services and TNR (Trap/Neuter and Release of Feral Felines)

TNR needs $2,000 to alter 40 homeless felines that would otherwise continue to re-produce. Many of these felines are often neglected, abused or injured and reproducing off spring. We take in the kittens young enough to be domesticated, we alter and vaccinate them and provide medical treatment if required then we adopt them out through our collaborative efforts.

Tax deductible checks can be sent to Red Rose Inspiration For Animals, P.O Box 74, Sedona, AZ 86339 or visit the website at www.redroseinspiration.org or visit the Red Rose Thriftique at 41 Bell Rock Plaza in the Village of Oak Creek to make a donation

100% of your donation goes directly to assisting the animals. No administrative costs as we are a small, volunteer based organization making a huge difference in the lives of animals throughout the Verde Valley. Thank you for your consideration.

Funding for Emergency Medical Services Program

Description

Looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of animals this Valentines Day?

Have you loved and lost a pet who meant the world to you?

Do you want to help other animals through your love for your pet?

The founder of Red Rose Inspiration For Animals has and created the organization as a way to give back to animals less fortunate through her beloved Rosey a rescue pup that inspired it all.

Red Rose is a local Sedona based 501c3 nonprofit is a very small group of volunteers.

Founded in 2009 Red Rose helps pet owners spay and neuter animal companions for free, provides emergency medical services for homeless felines and canines and assists pet owners on a fixed income getting the veterinary care they desperately need. The focus is reducing the over pet population; preventing felines and canines from potentially being injured, abused or neglected.

In October, November and December 2017 Red Rose spent over $3,700.00 with 25 spays, 22 neuters and 8 emergency medical needs.

With 9 programs in animal welfare it’s often difficult to fund every single program and continue to keep it fully funded.
However, the need to assist the community continues to grow as we service the whole Verde Valley. Especially Camp Verde, Rimrock, Cornville and Cottonwood.

When pet owners on a fixed income find themselves experiencing an emergency situation with their companion animal they are not always prepared to even cover the cost of an exam let alone medication and testing.
Red Rose has assisted many pet owners in dire need so that they further delay the animal having to suffer due to financial challenges.

Your donation to the Emergency Medical program will continue to help us to make a difference in the lives of these companion animals.

We feel fortunate to have been able to make a difference in the lives of so many animals needing our service. Please consider supporting the work, we do, 100% of your donation goes directly to assisting the animals through our programs. No administrative costs or salaries!. Choose the program that touches your heart through Red Rose. . Thank you.

Low cost services are financially challenging for many pet owners with costs generally $75.00 and up to and over $125.00 based on weight, medical situations, and the age of animal that requires additional costs for blood work.

Please make these classes easier for students thirsty for education by donating on the website: BwindiCommunityProgram.org or by mailing a check to 20 Soldiers Trail, Sedona, AZ 86336. The academic year will begin in February and the students are waiting for their tools to arrive!

Funding Need for TNR Trap/Spay and Neuter of Feral Cats

Description

Give the Gift of Love and Help to a Homeless Feline this Valentines Day

Red Rose Inspiration for Animals is in need of additional funding for it's ongoing TNR (trap/neuter/release program which rescues feral cats). Our need throughout the Verde Valley continues to grow and funding is low.

In October, November and December we spent over $3,700.00 in assisting homeless animals and pet owners in need. The cost included Emergency Medical Care, Free Spay/Neuter Services and TNR (Trap/Neuter and Release of Feral Felines)

TNR needs $2,000 to alter 40 homeless felines that would otherwise continue to re-produce. Many of these felines are often neglected, abused or injured and reproducing off spring. We take in the kittens young enough to be domesticated, we alter and vaccinate them and provide medical treatment if required then we adopt them out through our collaborative efforts.

Tax deductible checks can be sent to Red Rose Inspiration For Animals, P.O Box 74, Sedona, AZ 86339 or visit the website at www.redroseinspiration.org or visit the Red Rose Thriftique at 41 Bell Rock Plaza in the Village of Oak Creek to make a donation

100% of your donation goes directly to assisting the animals. No administrative costs as we are a small, volunteer based organization making a huge difference in the lives of animals throughout the Verde Valley. Thank you for your consideration.

Give the Gift of Spay Neuter to a Low Income Pet Owner

See all wishes from Humane Society of Sedona

Description

People who love their pets want the best for them, and spay/neuter is good for your pet. That's why HSS recently re-opened our low-cost spay/neuter clinic to low-income families in our area. But even with our low rates, some area pet lovers simply cannot afford to get their pets altered. We've had to turn away people. Our hearts break for them. We're hoping to find 10 people who will donate so that one pet of a low or fixed income family can be spayed or neutered at our clinic. Many people who want to do the right thing but can't afford to. Won't you help us help them help their beloved pets this Holiday? Visit http://bit.ly/HelpHSSHelpPets for more information or to donate, call 928-282-4679, or email rpoling@humanesocietyofsedona.org.

Pet Friendly Shelter Project

See all wishes from Verde Valley Sanctuary

Description

48% of people suffering from domestic abuse need help caring for their pets. It’s not uncommon for person to stay with their abuser if they cannot bring their pet, or pets, into our shelter. Bringing pets into an already crowed group house can be very complicated. Most people really need their pets in the room with them; not boarded out. We want to develop an adjoining property (next to our current shelter) into a pet friendly, four-bedroom shelter. This is a cost-effective chance for us without building from scratch. Purchase cost will be $120,000. Modification costs will be $60,000. Our first year operation cost $45,000. Total $225,000. We have started a dedicated capital fund toward this goal. This is an interesting and creative project. (There are only a few domestic violence shelter that take pets.)

The right tools make a difference! We try to provision our students for the transition to secondary school. It is expensive for rural Ugandan students to go to the next level of education. Scientific calculators only cost $18 each but that is often more than a sponsor can provide when faced with all the mandatory items a student requires to move to secondary. Please help by providing a donation to the Calculator Fund at BwindiCommunityProgram.org or by writing a check to Bwindi Community Program and mailing it to 20 Soldiers Trail, Sedona AZ 86336. It is the little things that make the difference between success and a mediocre attempt. These students deserve all the ammunition we can provide!

Students in secondary school in Uganda benefit from being able to use scientific calculators. The transition from primary school requires a lot of provisioning of these students; supplies mandated by the school and personal items for the year of boarding. Bwindi Community Program asks the sponsors to provide a great deal to make this transition comfortable for our rural students. Scientific calculators are not mandatory so are not on the list. But scientific calculators for each student can make a difference in performance. BCP wants to make certain that all the sponsored students have the tools to do well. The calculators only cost $18 each. So much good will come out of so little! Please help the students achieve their goals by having the best tools.

Teaching in a rural school in Uganda is a challenge. To attract and retain good teachers, Bishop Comboni School has erected an eight-teacher residential facility with a communal kitchen and dining room. It is beautiful and construction is complete. The only thing standing in the way of occupancy is the lack of furniture for the building. Bwindi Community Program has started a fund to help the school with this purchase. A donation of any size to Bwindi Community Program at 10 Soldiers Trail, Sedona AZ 86336 would be wonderful. We are a 501c3..

Textbooks and Science Lab Workbooks

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

Description

Bwindi Community Program (BCP) has learned about the need for Textbooks and Science Lab Workbooks at the rural Uganda secondary school where our older sponsored students study. There are never enough textbooks to allow each student to have one in their possession for a term. They have to be one of the lucky students to find a book in the library when they need it.

Science courses should be accompanied by individual lab workbooks. They allow the student to keep a personal record of the lesson in the lab. It is an invaluable tool in learning some challenging subjects. BCP would like your help to provide these for the students who cannot afford them.

Enhance the education of these students by writing a check to Bwindi Community Program for $15 each textbook or workbook. You may also donate online by visiting our website BwindiCommunityProgram.org. There is hope for a future for these children through education.

Solar Lamps to light up Evening Study Time

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

Description

The secondary students go home on break to a very rural village three times per year. They must perform family chores during the day and want to study in the evening. It is impossible in an environment where there is no electric service and only commercial lodges can afford to run a generator. The situation creates lost time and frustration for the hard-working students who return to school for the new term in need of help to regain their proficiency. A simple solar powered lamp would light up their evening and allow that precious study time while they are away from school. A good quality lamp can be purchased for $17 per student. The thirty eight students in secondary school will cheer your kindness.

Red Rose rolls out new spay-neuter program

Red Rose Inspiration For Animals proudly announces its newest program called Rosey's Party, which is focused on free canine spay and neuter -- any breed, any size and any need to help make a difference in the over pet population of canines throughout the Verde Valley.

Red Rose has continued to support homeless animals with their free spay/neuter services and support pet owners who can't afford low cost spay/neuter services at shelters and clinics.

Rosey's Party expands upon their Pitty-Party efforts, which focuses primarily on the spay/neuter of pit bulls and pit-mixes because pit bulls are one of the most common breeds in many shelters across the US to be euthanized and are even outlawed in some states.

Red Rose still offers no-cost spay/neuter for felines through their General Spay and Neuter Program and TNR (Trap/Neuter Return) Program.

According to Red Rose “animals left to reproduce often times become abandoned, abused, neglected or injured. It's a horrible existence for them and it doesn't have to be this way as we can all help to promote and educate pet owners as to why spay and neuter is so important.”

Redrock Precision Motors, a local supporter of the community offered to help Red Rose Inspiration, fund Rosey's Party by offering a donation challenge. They will match all donations dollar-for-dollar for the first $1000 raised through the end of August.

To help donate to Rosey’s Party, checks can be made payable to Red Rose Inspiration For Animals, P.O Box 74, Sedona, AZ 86339.

To make an appointment for free spay/neuter through Rosey’s Party call 928-282-5278 or email info@redroseinspiration.org

This 8 month process begins with bringing theatre workshops to older teens and adults in the area and culminates in creating a brand new performance piece to tour in Northern AZ. A book and video of the live show will also be made available.

'Performing Latino Life' intends to • validate the adult Latino experience in Northern AZ • empower that population to engage in the civic discourse of their community • develop a confident, skillful pool of Latino performers, practitioners and attendees for the performing arts • build a collaborative bridge between the majority and Latino cultures via the arts.

Working in partnership with the Sedona Arts Center we have a broad range of supporters from Flagstaff to Sedona and Cottonwood. Right now we need tax deductible contributions to pay the Program Manager and Workshop Facilitators as we begin workshops (July 7!) and continue to develop and seek funding for the project.

Please consider how you and/or your business can be a major supporter of this valuable pilot project with potential to make a real difference in the lives of individuals and in the social-economic life of Northern AZ.

The Sedona Pet Food Bank needs funds to purchase pet food for clients of the Sedona Food Bank. We purchase pet food at wholesale price through Sedona Pet Supply. This food supplements donations given through the pet food barrels located around Sedona. Even with food donations, we still need to purchase about $500 worth of food or we would never have enough.
Please write checks to: HUMANE SOCIETY OF SEDONA however, you MUST write Pet Food Bank in the memo.

Both non-profit based here in Sedona, and they operate with an all-volunteer staff. A thoughtful and generous donor has come forward offering to double the donations raised by both Golden Bone and Red Rose up to the amount of $1,000 each. This is a wonderful opportunity for each organization to raise necessary money for their respective program.

Funds for treatment

See all wishes from Golden Bone Rescue and Rehab

Description

Golden Bone Rescue is working to raise several hundred dollars for Emma, a Bernese Mountain dog with hip dysplasia. Treatment plans include a course of adequan which will allow us to postpone surgery until we can strengthen her back and legs. The first month will consist of loading her up once a week with the shots which cost around $50, then taper off to a monthly shot until we can evaluate for surgery. Without treatment she will not have the ability to bear weight on her back legs in 18 months to 2 years. We have a fantastic rate for the surgery of $400 but we want to get her strong and sturdy first.
