Our first grant for 2012 – Ahimsa House

Here we are with Maya Gupta, the Executive Director of Ahimsa House.

I want to share some great news with you.  As we continue to grow and learn about the world of not-for-profit, we began to realize that while we are still committed to our original vision of providing arts and other activities to support our themes of compassion and movement, we also have the ability to help organizations that show great compassion to the world around us in other ways.

One such organization is Ahimsa House.  Ahimsa House addresses the following crisis:

“Nearly 50% of individuals delay escaping the abuse because of concern about their pets. Ahimsa House provides emergency pet safehousing, veterinary care, pet-related safety planning, legal advocacy, a 24-hour crisis line, outreach programs, and other services to help the human and animal victims of domestic violence across Georgia reach safety together”

You can read more about Ahimsa House here:  ahimsahouse.org.  I think it is fair to say that you can tell a lot about a civilized society by how it treats the animals under its care.  We have come a long, long way, but the fact that we need organizations like Ahimsa House still mean we have a ways to go.

At the beginning of the year, Ahimsa House was going to have to shut down their 24/7 emergency service due to funding cuts from the State of Georgia.  I am proud to let you all know that the Georgia Compassion Project was able to help them cover the shortfall.  The 24/7 emergency service will continue to operate throughout 2012 and be able to provide this important and compassionate service for the foreseeable future.

Lot’s more going on this year, stay tuned, it is going to be a great year.

Some great news…

We did it!  We received our 5013c status.  Wow, that was hard work, but worth it.

Do you know this man?

Our co-founder Ted Pappas, in all of his glory.  He’s a big star.  Maybe we should sell posters too?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
