Disneyland Ticket Giveaway 2017!

Today marks the start of our Disneyland ticket giveaway!

All donations of $5 or more that we receive between 1 February and 31 March 2017 will enter the donor to receive four (4) 1-day Park Hopper tickets to Disneyland in California!

The winner will be announced during the first week in April via a live video feed.

We have decided to modify the plan a little in an effort to include more people. The way it will work is any donation either made in person or via this web site in the amount of $5 or more will generate an entry for the drawing.

So, donate $5 and receive 1 entry, donate $10 and receive 2 entries but donate $20 and you will have 5 entries. Sounds good? Well then, press the link below and select your donation amount!

I have the Disneyland tickets for the 2017 contest!

Today was an exciting day for me. After a long day at work I checked the mail and what should I find but 4 Park Hopper tickets from Disneyland! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. While I didn’t expect them for at least 2 weeks, I couldn’t help but wonder how people would feel about entering a contest to win a prize that they couldn’t see with their own eyes.

Sure, there are people that would put their faith in us to deliver the goods that we promised but I was beginning to worry about stretching the limits of trust that our supporters have in us.

 I also worried about what would happen if the tickets were lost in the mail or didn’t make it by our requested date….

Disney had very specific answers and procedures to follow so I wasn’t too worried about being able to produce the promised prize on time but you never know.

Well, we don’t need to worry anymore as Disney has delivered as promised so we can begin our contest on 1 Feb 2017 as scheduled.

Starting on 1 Feb 2017 we will be tracking donations and registering entries based on the donation amount. More information and details will be provided on the 1st so stay tuned!

Some Information About Non-Profits and Overhead Costs

We all have concerns about how our money is being spent by the organizations that we contribute to. After all, it is our hard earned money and we want to makes sure that our donations are being used in a manner that is consistent with our beliefs, interests and desires. The act of determining who is spending your money in an appropriate way isn’t as simple as comparing the management costs vs the program costs and donating to the one with a higher percentage going to the programs and less to payroll and various other activities.

Below you will find some guidance from three of the major resources in the nonprofit world in regards to how a donor should look at the overhead an organization might be dealing with. Please, read on with an open mind and then look at our GuideStar profile and consider a small donation.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

9 June 1922 – 11 December 1941

Today is the anniversary of this young man’s death. He was a flyer with both American and British citizenship that went to fight for his mother’s home country. He was killed in a simple accident  but not before composing a beautiful piece of poetry that is loved by aviators everywhere. 
High Flight

 “Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth

of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,

I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air….
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue

I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.

Where never lark, or even eagle flew —

And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

– Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.”

John Gillespie Magee Jr.

Thurston County Pet Adoption Grant

We thought that it would be a great idea to provide an unadvertised pet adoption grant to the first 10 people that adopted a pet from the Thurston County shelter. This would be a reward for saving a shelter animal from a lonely and possibly very short life. The grant would cover the adoption costs which include the price of having the animal spayed or neutered as appropriate. Please click on the link below for more details!

https://www.crowdrise.com/…/angels-wing…/pet-adoption-grants

Here is an example of the kind of animals that are looking for their new family!

110513
Australian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat)
Large Senior Male
 This boy is approximately 10 years old.

To learn more about the breed(s) of this dog, please go to your favorite search engine and type the breed(s) and “rescue.”

They come spayed/neutered, microchipped, first set of vaccines including DHPP (parvo combo), Bordatella (kennel cough) and Strongid (wormer).
