The Parma Animal Shelter needs help.
Beck says: Reading the news a few days ago, I stumbled across a story that made me very upset. In my local area animal control raided a house.
Inside they found 200 birds, 30 dogs, 6 cats, 50 quails, and some rabbits too. All in all they had a total of over 300 animals. These animals were living in their own waste and covered in fleas. The house was beyond liveable conditions. These animals have been removed from the house. And now are being taken care of at the local animal shelter. But like most, they are over crowded. They run mostly on donations and volunteers. An already packed house is now even more over ran. Currently they can’t take in anymore animals or put any up for adoption until legal matters are handled. They are asking for donations so they can get cleaning supplies and other things to properly care for all these animals.Read More
Eden Gives Back: Year One
This has been an amazing year for the EdenFantasys community, and we are so proud of you all for making EdenGivesBack such a success. Your efforts have not only reached those in need of help, but also those in need of love and appreciation.
In the fall of 2010, the community raised over $2,300 to what was then called Community Gives Back. Along with the donations, community members volunteered their time & effort to bring Thanksgiving and Christmas to a total of 6 families who wouldn’t have been able to celebrate otherwise.Read More
First of all I hope you all know just how much you did for the families we helped out. I remember when I was a little girl at the age that I questioned Santa’s existence. I asked my grandfather and he told me that perhaps Santa didn’t really wear a red suit and fly around with reindeer but, as long as there were those in the world with a giving heart then yes Santa did exist.
This year you all were Santa to two very deserving families. To say they were surprised is an understatement. I was a bit overwhelmed myself with the amount of money I was able to use on them. I also took the $100 that was to go to me and used that, all my shopping was done and I wanted to give them the best Christmas I could.Read More
I have had more fun this Christmas season than I have had in a long time. I mean, Christmas is always fun for me. I love the decorations and sights and smells and family time. But, I’ve always wished I had the money to do a huge shopping trip for charity. This year, I finally got to do that and it’s all thanks to the fabulous community at EdenFantasys and the wonderful Eden Gives Back program.
I was so excited when I got the news from Sam that I could be one of the Eden community volunteers and that I could go shopping for a charity of my choice in my community. Of course, I had to find a charity and get the official go ahead from EdenFantasys. I had a few false starts because a couple of the charities I wanted to buy for had deadlines that were before the end of the collection time for Eden Gives Back. But, I finally found my charity to buy for in the Salvation Army Angel Tree and toy drive. After I selected the two little angels off the Salvation Army Angel Tree, all I had to do was wait for the Eden Gives Back fund drive to wrap up.Read More
I have never been homeless. I have never known what it’s like to go hungry for more than twelve hours. But, I do know what it’s like to eat Ramen noodles on Christmas Eve and a bag of popcorn on Christmas day because I had five dollars to my name and no invitation from friends or family. It’s probably one of the worst feelings I can remember experiencing.
As I sit here, two days before Christmas, there is not a single decoration in sight—not a bowl of candy, or a plate of cookies. Nor a tree, or lights or any of those things. For me, this is a choice. For many Americans this year, it is not a choice. We have the highest unemployment rate in recorded U.S. history and those who have jobs go into work wondering if today will be the day they become one of the many standing in line for benefits.Read More
