Angela K. raised over $140 in one month by using iGive.com to support Center for Great Apes.

Angela joined iGive.com in 2007 and has earned nearly $300 in Donations for her chosen cause, Center for Great Apes.  Almost half of that was in one month – that’s some powerful shopping!

Center for Great Apes is the only accredited orangutan sanctuary in North America. Located in Florida, this 501(c)3 charity is dedicated to providing a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, from research, or from the exotic pet trade.

As a thank you for her support of this “Great” cause, iGive.com has partnered with Parachute Home to provide Angela with a $150 gift card.

Thanks for all you do!

iGive.com celebrates our Cause’s Good Works

The executive director of Maryland Horse Rescue sent us their story:

Maryland Horse Rescue is a 100% volunteer, certified 501(c)3 organization that rescues unwanted equine. Although we mostly take in horses, we accept any equine including mules and donkeys. We specialize in the care of blind and senior horses and our volunteers are dedicated to giving the very best care to our residents. We strive to educate the community on the value of a horse’s life and do a lot of work with the community and special needs groups.

We do our best to rehabilitate and re-home our horses, but sadly people are always looking for that “perfect” horse, so we promise to let our residents live out their lives in a safe, loving environment. We are a NO KILL shelter and only euthanize when it is absolutely necessary with the close advice of our veterinarian.

Mission:

Our founder’s first horse came from a badly abusive situation, but despite his horrible past, she taught him to become rideable. As years passed, she grew more and more disheartened as she watched people buy and sell horses like used appliances; it just didn’t seem right. The search for the elusive “perfect” horse meant many horses were being thrown away for minor defects that could be fixed. She found this tragic and it just seemed to her that someone needed to act as a safety “Net” for those horses, so “HorseNet” was born. In 2016 HorseNet Horse Rescue was rebranded as Maryland Horse Rescue. Our mission is still the same,  to facilitate the rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing of abused and abandoned horses in Maryland.

We firmly believe that every horse can perform a job of some kind, no matter what their limitation, and that they all deserve a second chance. This is the basis on which Maryland Horse Rescue will continue.

Since joining iGive.com, members supporting Maryland Horse Rescue have earned over $1600 for this #GoodCause!

The James Connection is a charitable 5 (c) (3) organization that has built an orphanage in Manipur India. Angels’ Place welcomed 60 destitute children on Feb 7, 2005. Today there are 161 youth being sheltered, nourished, instructed in God’s principles & educated in a private school.

James Connection

The original children are moving into their adult lives & some are pursuing higher education. In a recent letter, one child requested a photo of his sponsor family. He wanted the photo so that he could say to others that “these people are the builders of my future”.

“You can read stories about the children & learn how your iGive donations are changing lives. Sponsorships are $35.00/month, but meet only part of the financial need. With your iGive donations, you too can be a Builder of a child’s future!” – iGive supporter Diane F.

To date, over $400 has been raised through iGive.com by Diane & her fellow supporters.

Kathy B. dropped us a note about her iGive Cause.  Paws Crossed Dog Rescue serves the Eastern Panhandle of WV and surrounding counties.  This non-profit dog rescue consists of a group of men and women who rescue abused, neglected, unwanted and abandoned animals. These people provide temporary foster homes to these animals until they are adopted. Paws Crossed provides these animals with food and medical needs including spay and neutering.

The foster homes play an essential part, for they do not have kennels for the dogs they rescue. Paws Crossed depends on the fosters, donations of food, supplies and money to be able to continue helping these dogs find their forever homes. All potential fosters and adopters are screened in order to assure the proper fitting home for each dog.
