Sugar's Gift First Quarter Report 2020

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  OUR FIRST REPORT OF 2020 FOR OUR SUPPORTERS!

YOU ARE WELCOME TO SHARE THIS EMAIL!

OUR MISSION – WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

Our mission is always worth repeating:  Our mission is to provide euthanasia and end-of-life veterinary services for terminally ill pets in their own homes.  We at Sugar's Gift™ do not charge for any of our services to help your terminally ill baby.  Why?  Our mission from the beginning has been all about the Little Ones, not about how much money someone has.  We don't charge you on a sliding scale.  We don't charge you based on your income.  We believe this:  Every one of you who has a terminally ill pet has something in common with all of us - the love for our pets, our companions, our Little Angels and the need to have them pass in the most comfortable surroundings.  That is something sacred to us.  We share that love and respect you for that love, as well.  That is why we do not charge you for our services.  It is the last Gift you can give your baby, and it is Sugar's Gift to both of you.

A BIG THANK YOU TO THE KNOPF FAMILY FOUNDATION

Sugar’s Gift™ received its first grant!  The Knopf Family Foundation was generous enough to give us a gift to help with our Jupiter location!  This is an exciting milestone for us and we are proud to be part of their family now.  We wanted to share that with you and tell them thank you, again!

WE ARE COMPILING A BOOK OF STORIES!

The pet owners whose pets Sugar's Gift™ has helped are giving us stories - either written stories, poetry, songs, about their pets' lives.  We want to publish those stories and let others know what wonderful people and pets we have helped, and how we have helped them through their experience with Sugar's Gift™.  If you are one of our terrific pet owners and we don't have your story yet.....get those pencils (or iPads) working overtime!  We want to publish the first volume this year!

OUR PET OWNERS AND THEIR MESSAGES TO US….

Pet owners across this great country of ours describe Sugar’s Gift™ as Bringing lasting peace to pets and their owners after a life full of love.”  We offer a life-changing experience...our services extend far beyond the time and scope of the services we provide for you and your pet. We are here as a resource, an ear or a shoulder to cry on, an organization that will always be here for you and your furbabies. Some of our pet owners have described our client care service as unsurpassed. Read some of our testimonials here.

WHAT WE NEED NOW FROM YOU

  1. We are getting calls at the rate of 3-4 pet owners per week to help their beloved pets cross the Rainbow Bridge from home.  It is wonderful that we can help so many, but that takes funding.....so we need more generous souls like you to help us pay for the expenses of each euthanasia and cremation for all these Little Angels. CLICK HERE TO DONATE
  2. Consider a recurring donation up to $200 per month to help us help more Little Angels cross the Rainbow Bridge from home.  Click here to go to the Monthly Donation Tab Page.
  3. If you work for or with a Corporation or Foundation, let us know.  We would love to talk with them to form a partnership and help the Little Angels together.  It would also help to know if they match employees' donations. (We are happy to speak with your Human Resources Department, if you would like us to inquire about this for you)
  4. We need Volunteers!  See the next section…...

MATCHING FUNDS ON RECURRING DONATIONS FOR ALL OF 2020 IS CONTINUED

For 2020, if you choose to donate to Sugar’s Gift™ on a monthly basis, for at least 4 months, GlobalGiving will match your 1st month’s donation 100% up to $200 per month!  Click here to go to the Monthly Donation Tab Page. We had some wonderful supporters who helped is 2019 with a similar match, and it would really help us to have more recurring donors  For example, If you want to donate $200 to us, consider donating $50 for 4 months so we can get your first $50 matched at 100%. That way, we’ll receive $250 for your $200 donated!  For those who have continued to donate, even beyond their 4 months (and we have too many people to list individually – thank you, thank you), your donations have helped us more than you’ll ever know.  We are very grateful for our supporters…..Your contributions will help ensure that we can continue our mission to help as may Beautiful Souls cross the Rainbow Bridge from home, in their peaceful and loving environment.

IDEA!  If you have made a contribution in the past, now is time to consider an annual Gift to honor your beloved pet at the Rainbow Bridge.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED IN ALL OF OUR LOCATIONS - NOW WE ARE READY TO USE YOUR TALENTS!

This is worth repeating, too - we are looking for Volunteers – our needs are growing, so please complete the Volunteer form on the website if you have a special skillset or have extra time on your hands.  Our website has a few positions listed and we certainly have a need for various Administration positions, Website Manager, Social Media Team Members, Event Planners, and many more.  And, if you just want to join us but don’t have anything in particular in mind, that is OK, too!  Remember, though…..all positions are Volunteer, not paid.  That is one reason our overhead rate is at 2-5% and it will stay there.  We are very cognizant of our costs.  We want your dollars to go to our mission, not our overhead expenses.

So, when we say every dollar counts…..EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS.  CLICK HERE TO DONATE

REMEMBER….

Sugar’s Gift™ 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. 

Please give generously.....monthly, annually, whatever suits your budget.  All the other Little Angels need us....and we need you.  Thank you.

We apologize, in advance, if you receive a duplicate of this report.  We are sending this through our email server, too, so you may get 2 of the same reports.  Just simply forward one to someone  you feel would like to read it!  Thank you.
