Sweet Angus Davidson-RIP. He crossed 7/3/18.

TODAY'S THE DAY!  WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE MATCHING FUNDS FOR YOUR DONATIONS TODAY THROUGH 9AM TOMORROW! 

This reports is the same one you received yesterday.....it is just a reminder!

Most of the time, we have very little notice about matching funds events; however, we found out about this one a little early!  You will get 2 more of these notices from me - on Tuesday, September 11 and then again the morning of Wednesday, September 12.  So,  I apologize in advance for being a pest.  You are all wonderful and I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for Sugar's Gift over the last couple of years....as a full partner at Global Giving, we are eligible to receive a share of $50,000 in matching funds, as well as matches on new monthly, recurring donations.  Please share this with everyone you know......
 
You have heard from us many times over the past couple of years about our non-profit, Sugar’s Gift, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization (meaning that donations are tax-deductible).  To remind you, our mission at Sugar's Gift is to provide home euthanasia for pets who are at life’s end and cannot be moved, or their owner is homebound and cannot easily transport their pets to a veterinarian....but why make their last moments with you anywhere except their home where they have lived and have been loved?  Sugar's Gift makes that possible. And, very importantly, we are the ONLY non-profit in the whole country who does what we do. 
  
Any amount you can contribute to us on September 12 would be appreciated beyond belief!  Your donations will allow us to receive a proportional match for every donation.  To make your giving easier, consider a few dollars each month as a recurring donation to Sugar's Gift - we will receive matches for those donations, too. Our Global Giving website takes PayPal or credit cards and you can designate the amount you want to give, and decide whether you want to give a lump sum or give monthly. And, remember any donation to Sugar's Gift is tax deductible, for individuals and for businesses (businesses usually get a dollar for dollar deduction - so keep this in mind!)....donating to Sugar's Gift is a win-win for both of us!
 
Many of you have given to us in the past, and we love every one of you!  Every dollar counts and 100% of your donations go toward our mission.  It costs us nearly $1,000 each time we help a sweet angel cross the Rainbow Bridge from home, so your help is really needed.  We have helped over 20 babies during the last 2 years, and our goal is to help 1 angel each day.  We need your donations to meet that goal.  Donations from wonderful, generous people like you are the only way we can be successful.
 
We are still getting requests from other states to find veterinarians there in order for Sugar's Gift to be more than "local." More than ever, our plans to branch out are starting to fall into place. That means we need your help more than ever for this campaign drive!  With every dollar received, I can't help but cry.  Your donations reaffirm my goal in life now.....to make Sugar's Gift self-sustaining and give us the ability to help as many angels as possible.
 
We are so excited about lots of things for Sugar's Gift later this year and in 2019....more news to come as we can share it with you. Thank you so much – again, please share this with everyone you know.  The more people hear about this, the better chance of receiving matching donations for this fundraiser on September 12, through 9 am on September 13.  You probably noticed we have an updated logo, new colors and just wait until you hear what is coming next.....stay tuned!

Angus Davidson-crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 7/3
Angus Davidson-crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 7/3

Hello to all of our wonderful supporters!  Here is the latest report for you and an update on our activities….. and the help we have given some very special babies with your help.  Remember that 100% of your donation goes to helping our babies – yes, 100%.  Every dollar counts – and they all add up!  We know each of you donates what you can, and we are always thankful when you spread the word to help us get more donations. We know you have lots of choices when you donate your hard-earned money and are so thankful every single day that you think of us.  As we had said before, we have very little overhead costs, as you know, so every dollar of your donations go directly to helping the angels.  

Nikki has been progressing and still asks me to type this for her, but sends her hugs, love and thanks for all you do to help her realize her dream – the success of Sugar’s Gift.  After her recent 2ndfall, she has had some setbacks, but you know Nikki……she says “what doesn’t kill her makes her stronger.  We take everything day by day.  Remember, please, that TBIs are the “silent disabler.”  Nikki puts on a very good front for everyone; however, what you don’t see is what happens behind the scenes.   Things aren’t always as “terrific” as they seem when you talk with her.

As we always do, we like to state our mission here and the reasons you wonderful donors have donated your hard earned money to us.:

SUGAR’S GIFT, INC.:  Our mission is to provide hospice, euthanasia and end-of-life veterinary services for terminally ill pets in their own homes. This allows them a comfortable, peaceful setting, where they have lived and been loved, to cross over the Rainbow Bridge with dignity. Our services overcome conditions that could be due to the pet’s inability to be moved or treated at a facility, or due to the owner’s inability to leave the home. 

Our 10-year old Yorkie, Sugar, passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2013. We made sure she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge from home with comfort, dignity and peace. Sugar’s Gift to your Little Angel is to allow them the same privilege: Sugar is helping them cross over the Rainbow Bridge from home, with the help from others who have donated funds to make that happen. Every Little Angel should be able to spend their last moments in the place they are most comfortable – at home.

SUGAR’S GIFT, INC. is the onlynon-profit, 501(c)(3) organization in the country whose mission is to help terminally ill pets cross over the Rainbow Bridge from home with comfort, dignity and peace.

We have spoken with Cheryl who owns Vet Care Express, and she is now a partner of ours! We will make sure from now on, your angels are transported with dignity after they cross the Rainbow Bridge with our help.  Thanks, Cheryl!  Nikki also wants to send another big thank you to Ray and Barbara at Belspur Oaks. The help they give Sugar’s Gift is so important and we call on Ray often for help with contacts.  Thanks, Ray!

We also have several new veterinarians who have committed to help us help more angels on their journey to the Rainbow Bridge.  A big thank you to Dr. Robin, Dr. Steven, Dr. Carmen and Dr. Jody.  We now have coverage for most of the Sarasota and Manatee county area when our pet owners call on us to help.

A HUGE thank you for Dr. Carmen in this newsletter.  She helped us with 2 Rainbow Bridge crossings where our owners needed help very quickly.  Dr. Carmen dropped everything and rearranged her schedule to help Sugar’s Gift and we very grateful.  And, thank you Cheryl B for all of your recommendations for our new vets!

Angus, a beautiful kitty needed us before the July 4thholiday.  His owner, Mary Lou, had just lost Angus’ brother, Shamus, 2 weeks before and was truly devastated with the decline in Angus’ health. Dr. Carmen stepped in for us and helped Angus on his journey and we were honored to ensure Angus cross the Rainbow Bridge.  And, Mary Lou has been very instrumental to us with business plans.  Please welcome Mary Lou as one of our new Board Members – we are honored to have her.

Jeff and Ellen needed our help with their baby, Toshi, in June.  Dr. Carmen came to our rescue again and helped ease Toshi’s pain. It has been a difficult time for Jeff and Ellen and we are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers, as they try to adjust to the large void in their lives.  Toshi is at the Bridge with all of our other angels until we all meet again.

And, sweet Sadie Owens crossed the Rainbow Bridge this week.  We were able to pay for her after care and some of her vet care, and are sending Mommy Merle a package with a beautiful urn today since Sadie is back home.  Sadie lived in north Florida, and we are honored to help her and her Mom.  Sadie struggled for a very long time with cancer, and she is at peace with all of our other angels at the Bridge.

We have another new Board Member and a new “Chief Barketing Officer,” Judy M!  Judy brings so much experience to Sugar’s Gift that will benefit us in many, many ways.  Judy is helping us with marketing, business plans, new logos and colors and, frankly, has given Nikki a new outlook on making Sugar’s Gift even better. Judy will help us bring in much needed funds to market our services so we can help more and more angels.  We are really focused on getting to the point of helping 1 angel per day.  With your help, and Judy’s fundraising help, we will get there.   

By the way, Nikki’s new title is “Leader of the Pack” – we love it!

Please keep us in mind for your estate planning, as well.  We have more donors who are including us for future donations from  their estates, so please keep us in mind for that, as well.  We are happy to speak with you about how that works and also talk with you about Pet Trusts.  They are so important if you have your own angels.  You really must plan for their futures, too.

Keep a look out for some changes to our website soon.  We are in the process of looking for a website designer to help us revamp our site, add some interactive features to it and help with the maintenance. I am reaching out to you here, because of all the people this reaches, maybe someone can recommend a firm.  (and we love in-kind donations!)

You will be hearing from us a lot between now and the end of the year.  We have some matching fund raising drives coming up, so please, have patience and don’t be angry for us wanting to become successful and getting emails or reports more often….we can only succeed with your donations. And, yours mean the world to us. Really.  Every dollar counts and every donation makes Nikki realize how much you believe in her and how much you believe in her mission – and brings her to tears.  I thank you from the bottom of MY heart for all you do to make Nikki happy, as well as helping the little angels.

And, as always, we want to share our goals:  Our goal is still to help one pet per day cross over the Rainbow Bridge with comfort, dignity and peace. It costs us approximately $1,000 to help one pet (our costs are going up, too). We expect that once our presence is known, we will need to fund one pet per day by the end of the first year. By the end of 2022, we hope to be not only in the Sarasota/Bradenton region, but also in all of Florida. Then, by the end of year 2023, we want to be nationwide.  We are still receiving requests even more requests from San Francisco, Indiana, Washington DC, Atlanta, New York, Kansas City, Austin, TX  and the Florida Panhandle to rollout to their cities as we can, which we hope will be in 2019.

If you are not on our email list for our newsletters, please let us know if you would like to be added. 

Thank you, again, for your support for Sugar's Gift - but, more importantly, thank you for helping all the angels who really need your funding to help them cross the Rainbow Bridge with comfort, dignity and peace.  Again, please feel free to share our information with your family and friends, or anyone who loves their babies as much as we do.

Rosie Manns, a very special angel
Rosie Manns, a very special angel

We had a very successful fundraising drive when we were asking for your help in April…we cannot thank you enough!  You are the very best supports an organization can ask for, and I mean that with all my heart.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We had a lot of new donors, too, and some were as a result of you spreading the word.  Again, we are very, very grateful to all of you.

Here is our latest report for you.  Remember that 100% of your donation goes to helping our babies – yes, 100%.  Every little bit counts (don’t get me wrong, we love the big bits, too!) – and we know you all do all you can.  There are a lot of organizations that need your help and we are thankful that you think of us when you are ready to donate some of your hard-earned funds.  We have very little overhead costs, as you know, so what funds are donated go directly to helping the angels. 

As some of you know, Nikki suffered a second fall in the last few weeks, and a little one a couple of days ago.  She didn’t suffer any serious consequences though, thankfully, but she asked me to type this report for her, nonetheless due to some numbness in her hand.  It has made us a little silent on the social media front for a bit, so if you have wondered why we were absent, that’s why.  She thanks many of you for the prayers, thoughts, love and hugs, and says she’ll rest, heal and be back again – good as new! 

As we always do, we like to state our mission here and the reasons you wonderful donors have donated your hard earned money to us.:

SUGAR’S GIFT, INC.:  Our mission is to provide hospice, euthanasia and end-of-life veterinary services for terminally ill pets in their own homes.

We receive some really wonderful donations with gift cards, and that is much appreciated.  Nikki has said this many times, but every time we receive a donation, she cries. It just makes us feel like others believe is what we are doing, and this is what Nikki’s calling is now in life. She loves helping the angels and loves all of you for your help in doing just that.  

She sends a special thank you to Belspur Oaks, who is our partner in the After Care for our angels.  They have been so helpful to us with our mission, and we wanted to send a big thank you to Barbara and Ray.

We helped a very special angel, Rosie the Boxer, cross the Rainbow Bridge from home during May.  She was rescued from a horrible situation at Animal Services, and was brought to a wonderful home, given more love than she ever had in her life, and we were privileged to help her, and her owner, H.M., when the time came.  We have a terrific new veterinary partner in Chasing Tails Mobile Veterinary Clinic with Dr. Jeannie P, and are excited to have her on board. (Thank you, Andrew, for all you do to help).  Dr. Jeannie helped Rosie cross the Bridge and everyone was so happy with how comfortable Rosie was, and how wonderful Dr. Jeannie was.

A special great big thank you to P.S., in memory of her many angels, M.S., in memory of her many angels, and L.F., in memory of Sheba, who have asked to remain anonymous, for their generous donations to us.  We have firm commitments from several donors for future endowments from their estates, as well.  We love all of our donors and every little bit helps.  These special donors need to be mentioned here because they go over and above what most donors give, and we want them to know that for that, they have our hearts forever.  We are always open to speaking with donors about endowments and future donations from estates, so please keep us in mind if you or someone you know would like help with estate planning. 

And we want to give a very special thank you to Wendy C, who always comes to our rescue when we need funds during our drives.  Animal Communications by Wendy will be featured soon on our website and our Facebook page.  Forgive us, Wendy, for being a bit delayed in doing that since Nikki had a little setback.

You, as our donors have helped us to pursue our mission, and we can't thank you enough!  As always, we ask that you please spread the word to others who love animals to see if they would donate to our special cause. Every person’s donation goes toward the next baby’s Rainbow Crossing.

And, as always, we want to share our goals:  Our goal is still to help one pet per day cross over the Rainbow Bridge with comfort, dignity and peace. It costs us approximately $1,000 to help one pet. We expect that once our presence is known, we will need to fund one pet per day by the end of the first year.

Thank you to all of our donors – new and existing! You are the reason we are successful and you are the reason we help the angels cross the Rainbow Bridge from home. Here is our latest report for you. We love every single one of you no matter the amount given to us. Every amount helps in some way. Remember that 100% of your donation goes to helping our babies. We have very little overhead costs and what we have we pay for out of our own pockets.

As many of you know, we lost our Spice Girl to the Rainbow Bridge on February 8, 2018. It is ironic because that is the same date, but in 2016, that Nikki fell and suffered her traumatic brain injury. What you probably also know is that our animal hospital gave her twice the amount of pain medicine that she should have had, and she was in no pain to warrant any pain medications anyway. That is another story for another time, but the moral of the story is to be sure your vet knows your wishes and asks you before they administer a narcotic to your beloved baby. RIP Spice Girl – November 17, 2004 – February 8, 2018. Run and play with Sugar Bear, Champers, Mimi Girl (her Mama), Guido and Phish.

As we always do, we like to state our mission here and the reasons you wonderful donors have donated your hard earned money to us.: 

SUGAR’S GIFT, INC.:  Our mission is to provide hospice, euthanasia and end-of-life veterinary services for terminally ill pets in their own homes. This allows them a comfortable, peaceful setting, where they have lived and been loved, to cross over the Rainbow Bridge with dignity. Our services overcome conditions that could be due to the pet’s inability to be moved or treated at a facility, or due to the owner’s inability to leave the home.

Our 10-year old Yorkie, Sugar, passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2013. We made sure she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge from home with comfort, dignity and peace. Sugar’s Gift to your Little Angel is to allow them the same privilege: Sugar is helping them cross over the Rainbow Bridge from home, with the help from others who have donated funds to make that happen. Every Little Angel should be able to spend their last moments in the place they are most comfortable – at home. 

SUGAR’S GIFT, INC. is the only non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization in the country whose mission is to help terminally ill pets cross over the Rainbow Bridge from home with comfort, dignity and peace.

We have had several large donations since our last report, and most of them choose to remain anonymous. I would love to tell you, though, that these are true angels to Sugar’s Gift. All of you as donors make a huge impact on our operating costs, but there are a few special individuals who have gone over and above their calls of duty to us. You know who you are, and we love you - and give thanks for you every single day, more than you’ll ever know.  And to our recurring donors, Patricia A, and those Anonymous donors, those recurring really help us in our cash flow and our projections of how many babies we can help at any time.

Thanks to those of you with donations from your gift cards, too! That number has increased, and we thank GlobalGiving for helping to spread the word about Sugar’s Gift to their audience. It tells us that our reputation is beginning to spread via word of mouth, too, and sometimes it is even more than my heart can take. I cry every time we receive a donation, because it tells me that you all believe in our mission, too. That is what makes our hearts full. Thank you.

Every one of those donations is precious to us, and reminds us that our mission is reaching further and farther than we even know. If it was not for GlobalGiving, our reach would be more limited. Thank you, also, Global Giving for the opportunity to partner with you.

We have badges from GlobalGiving now that show we are fully vetted and one of their top organizations – thanks to all of you! Those pictures are shown in this report. So, again, we have reached a new level of rewards status with GlobalGiving, being a Superstar now. Superstar status gives us the opportunity to be featured in GlobalGiving’s social media, possibly being mentioned for a grant from a corporate sponsor and myriad other incredible chances for exposure to all the GlobalGiving donors that we would not have otherwise. We have continued to ramp up our training with GlobalGiving’s tools and courses to make us better at what we do and to help the angels more. 

Unfortunately, recently, we have had to really screen our calls from those who want our services. We have put a new disclaimer on our website, because we refuse to serve owners who are simply “tired of medical bills, tired of their pets or tired of the trouble their pets are.” We can’t and won’t serve those types of owners. We serve owners who are low-income, elderly, homebound or their pets are too sick or painful to move.

As I write this, we are working with P.A. from Bradenton because her baby is too large and painful to move. We are helping her, and because it isn’t a low income situation, she is willing to cover the cost in a donation to Sugar’s Gift. We are happy to help in any circumstance, as long as euthanasia is warranted, and someone isn’t just looking for a handout, when the just want to get rid of their pets. That will not happen with us.

A special thank you to C.S. and P.S. – who have asked to remain anonymous, for their generous donations to us recently. They support us and we love them. We love all of our donors – every little bit helps. These 2 wonderful supporters go over and above what most donors give, and for that they have our hearts forever.

You, as our donors have helped us to pursue our mission, and we can't thank you enough! As always, we ask that you please spread the word to others who love animals to see if they would donate to our special cause. Every person’s donation goes toward the next baby’s Rainbow Crossing.

Our goal is still to help one pet per day cross over the Rainbow Bridge with comfort, dignity and peace. It costs us approximately $1,000 to help one pet. We expect that once our presence is known, we will need to fund one pet per day by the end of the first year.
