My Donation to Charity

By: Olivia Brown

LEXINGTON, KY May 3, 2013/Press Release/ Christian Appalachian Project has partnered with the Kentucky National Guard to launch a new program designed to support Kentucky National Guard members and their families called “Partners in Care.”

“Partners in Care” is an initiative of the Kentucky National Guard Joint Force Headquarters chaplain’s office, and allows commanders to coordinate support through the Chaplain and Family Assistance Center (FAC), for Soldiers, Airmen, and their families who are “in a time of need.”

The program is open to any current Kentucky National Guard Soldier, Airmen, or their family members. Services include: emergency food assistance, emergency clothing assistance, emergency financial assistance, basic household and auto repairs, housing assistance, licensed childcare, and much more.

“CAP is no stranger to helping those in need,” said Sister Robbie Pentecost, Development Project Leader/Volunteer Groups for CAP. “We have been committed to serving people in need in Appalachia for the past 49 years. We are honored to partner with the Kentucky National Guard to help the Soldiers, Airmen and their families in their time of need.”

Christian Appalachian Project (cap)

Christian Appalachian Project's mission is an interdenominational, Christian organization committed to serving people in need in Appalachia by providing physical, spiritual and emotional support through a wide variety of programs and services. As the 15th largest human services charity in the nation, Christian Appalachian Project has been committed to improving the lives of Appalachian residents since 1964. CAP has grown to touch the lives of more than one million people each year. Today, programs and services range from child development centers and abuse shelters to GED classes and respite services. CAP’s programs and services include providing food, clothing, and shelter, as well as home repair and disaster relief emergency response services.

Expenses Breakdown:

  • 88.7% of the money that's donated is used to help children and spouses, who was abused or neglected.
  • 7.3% of the money they get is used for fundraising expenses, which is basically telling people who they are and what they do.
  • 4% is used for Administrative expenses.

How much I would Donation and Why:

I would donate $50,000 of my $1,000,000 for Christian Appalachian Project because this area is involved in many tropical storm, such as hurricanes. Therefore, it would would be nice if there was a group of people that specializes in disaster relief and truly care about you.

Animal Place

For news do to:

“For more than two years, these hens have only known the small space of a cage”, says Marji Beach, Animal Place Education Director, “Now free they will touch the grass, feel the sun, and stretch their wings for the first time.” The hens arrived with severely overgrown toe-nails. All had been de-beaked, in which a portion of their beak is cut off without pain relief.

Mission: Animal Place’s California animal shelters fills a much-needed niche of farm animal rescue, sanctuary, education and adoption. Animal Place is one of the largest and oldest animal sanctuaries in the nation. We operate a 600-acre sanctuary in Grass Valley, California, and a 60-acre animal shelter in Vacaville, California. Animal Place extends compassion to all life with a special emphasis on farmed animals. This is executed by providing permanent sanctuary, education, legislation and appropriate placement of needy animals. If you wish to know more or be apart of this place, here's some links:

Expenses Breakdown:

  • 81.6% of its income is to helping and caring for farm animals.
  • 7.8% is for fundraising.
  • 10.7% is for Administrative.

How much I donate and Why:

I would donate $400,000 for Animal Place because I have a great love for animals and I hate seeing them hurt or neglected in any way. Most charities involving animals only focuses on house pets instead of other animals who might be in worst shape but Animal Place takes care of house pets and farm animals.

Montgomery County SPCA

Mission:The Montgomery County SPCA is dedicated to caring for unwanted, lost and abused domestic animals. Established in 1909 and chartered in 1916, the Montgomery County SPCA  has three locations. The Conshohocken facility houses the administrative offices as well as small domestic animals. The Perkiomenville facility includes a pet cemetery and horse farm along with facilities for small animals. Our newest facility for small domestic animals is in Abington. In an effort to combat the serious problem of pet overpopulation, it is our policy to spay or neuter all animals that are adopted.  If you wish to know more or how to help, here's some links:

Expenses Breakdown:

  • 81.5% for neutering and caring for the animals.
  • 1.1% for fundraising.
  • 17.4% of Administrative.

How much would I donate and Why?

I would donate $150,000 to SPCA because they have seem to figure out one the biggest problems involving animals; over-population. If SPCA can keep a lot of animals off the streets then I'm all for it. Spay or neuter would allow less animals being caught by kill-shelters and dangerous highways.
