Describe the creative youth microprojects that your nonprofit would fundraise for if you win.

:

LIFE (Leaders in Furthering Education) Humane Heroes Club is an after-school program developed to teach children the vital role animals play in our lives and in our world. Our goal is to create a generation of young people dedicated to the work of building more humane communities for animals and for all of us. The new effort will be inaugurated on February 15 with the launch of the first LIFE Humane Heroes Club at Sagemont School in Weston, Florida. Members of America’s newest Compassion Movement will enjoy a tour of the new Lois Pope Red Star Rescue Vehicle, part of Florida’s latest emergency response efforts for animals affected by natural and manmade disasters, and a special visit with American Humane Association Therapy Dog Bailey in April.

Explain how possibly gaining funding through the Give for Youth platform would better able you to complete these projects.

Through a spectrum of after-school activities and curricula, LIFE Humane Heroes Clubs will give today’s children a voice in the compassion movement, educate them about the value of the human-animal bond, and teach them how to advocate for real animals in need in their hometown communities. The programs of the LIFE afterschool program would also tie into the work AHA is doing to address the benefits of animal-assisted therapy on childhood cancer patients http://bit.ly/ccc-study.

Gaining funding via Give For Youth would lend a powerful undercurrent of energy, attention and online engagement that could not be found elsewhere. It would also help integrate our efforts to educate and empower young people with larger networks of organizations, projects and initiatives doing similar work.

Describe why your nonprofit is innovative and entrepreneurial.

:

Studies have shown pets have a profound impact on the lives of children, particularly young children and the relationship they share with their four-legged companions teaches important values including love, responsibility, compassion and empathy.

Built on the pillars of character, compassion, and respect, this pioneering project is an innovative new extension of the century-old, successful humane education program, “Be Kind to Animals Week®,” which taught generations of American children the importance of all living things.

On Facebook, everyday I get a list of all of these Innoncent dogs that are on death row , and it makes me angry . These dogs did not do anything to deserve this. There has to be a way to get this stopped. I live in Texas and I know this probably happens in every state but we need to try to do something to have tis stopped. We are humans and we are supposed to take care of these Innoncent creatures. I wish I had an answer but I don't.
