May Charity ~ Pack Away Hunger

This month we are taking our $10.00 funds and donating to

pack away

http://www.packawayhunger.org/

Life. Hunger steals quality of life. For some it steals life itself. Small children are especially vulnerable, and each day more than 8,000 perish due to hunger related causes.

Changing. Fueled by like-minded community members, we provide meals that have the power to transform lives. Regular access to nutritious food does more than satisfy in the short term. It builds the foundation for a hopeful future.

Nutrition. Superior nutrition in each serving is vital. Our meals carry a powerful vitamin/mineral combination. This newly developed formula is scientifically proven to improve key health factors of the chronically hungry.

Pack Away Hunger is a non-profit organization dedicated to greatly improving the lives of children and others who suffer from hunger and malnutrition. The lack of proper nutrition creates serious health and developmental consequences for individuals and has far reaching implications for communities.  In the United States 15.8 million children do not have regular access to healthy meals (1). In developing countries one out of six children — roughly 100 million — is underweight, the result of acute or chronic malnutrition (2).

In a world with such vast resources, we think this is unacceptable. To achieve our mission, we have partnered with The Mathile Institute for Human Nutrition to develop the most highly nutritious pre-packaged meals available. These meals are scientifically proven to meet the specific nutritional needs of children and other at-risk populations.

We’re not alone in our desire to end hunger. Like-minded community organizations, businesses and individuals join our mission by purchasing the raw materials needed for these meals. The group then comes together to create the meals at a “packing event”. The meals are then distributed to local food banks and pantries or to community feeding programs in emerging nations.

These powerful events are educational and fun! Participants often feel a sense of purpose, knowing the meals they pack with their own hands will meet a significant need for someone in their neighborhood or in a community around the world.

We believe this unique collaboration between nutritional science and community engagement offers a significant way to provide Life. Changing. Nutrition. to those in need.

Please join us to Pack Away Hunger.

 Minimum Donations $10

Online Only

http://www.paaws.org/

We are the premier No-Kill Animal Rescue Organization in the Tri-State area. A registered 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit Corporation, our team of volunteers serve Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky. We are saving animals…everyday…with YOUR help!

Our volunteers foster our rescue animals in their homes.  We do not have a building, or shelter. Our volunteers devote time and love to each and every animal.  Our volunteers administer medications when needed for sick animals, care for wounded, and rescue the neglected, abused and unwanted animals.  We are very passionate about our efforts and hope that you are able to see that on the faces of the animals. 

Please contact us if you have an animal which is in need of help, if you would like to become a volunteer team member, if you would like to make a monetary donation to help with veterinary care, if you have food and/or pet supplies to donate, or if you want to make ANY donation of TIME, TALENT, & TREASURE.

You can feel good knowing that all proceeds donated go STRAIGHT TO THE ANIMALS!  There is NO payroll and there are NO salaries…100% of all resources go toward one common goal…improving the lives of the animals. Our animals are “sheltered” in the homes of our volunteers…we feel that this close-up and personal care leads to better socialization of the animal which, in turn, creates a happier, healthier, and more adoptable pet!

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Food, shelter, transportation, medical care, and even toys cost money. Save an animal in need today by making a monetary donation, then contact us to find out how you can help us and how we can help you. THANK YOU!

Disclaimer: I am not a Brand Ambassador for any particular group, I’m just a friendly advocate in giving to the community. If there are charities you are passionate about and would like for me to post or recognize for our charity of the month post feel free to send them to http://www.evolutioneventsllc@gmail.com
