AZT Thru-Hike for A4H
by Alan Verona
Adventures for Hopi (A4H) is a non-profit outdoor education school for indigenous youth that promotes experiential education. While kayaking, canyoneering, climbing, backpacking, or performing service projects, trip leaders engage students in subjects like geology, biology, local history, and plant identification.

Safety and success in outdoor activities relies on knowledge, experience, and equipment. A4H has an in-house training program for prospective outdoor educators, but can always benefit from gear for students. It also provides some gear to corps members of Ancestral Lands, a native program for conservation projects throughout the Southwest.

My name is Alan Verona. I served three terms with Arizona Conservation Corps in 2015, and am grateful for the opportunity to work hard outdoors with other dedicated folks. Experiential education - learning lessons in nature - is powerful. I was lucky to have a sturdy tent and warm sleeping bag when I started, and would like to help provide similar gear for those who are beginning outdoor work and recreation.

This March I plan to thru-hike the Arizona Trail, and raise some money for A4H and Ancestral Lands in the process. There are 800 miles on the AZT, so $800 seems like a good goal. Any donation is greatly appreciated; a penny a mile is $8. Happy trails this spring, everyone!

13 Cats Rescued From Horrific Abuse
In Northern Arizona, a man was stopped in a stolen UHaul. Inside, 17 abused cats were discovered with unspeakable injuries, stuffed into 9 small cat crates, soaked in urine and feces. All are sick; some severely injured.

Their injuries are suspected to be caused by this man who already has animal cruelty charges on file. It's believed they lived in the crates, in horrific pain.

These cats NEED us, and there's no time to waste; please donate now.

by Ashlii Dyer
For the past few months, I have been working with the Arizona Justice Project as an intern. This organization is just one of many that give back to the community in a way that intrinsic to the reform of the criminal justice system in Arizona and America. It has so much become a part of the calling of my heart, and the work they do is incredible. I'm honored to be a part of it. With that said AZ Gives Day is one of the biggest opportunities for the AJP to raise funds to continue their selfless efforts throughout Arizona.

The World's Your Garden
by Isabella de Vlieger
Bloom365 has completely changed my life. It gave me power during a time where all my control was stripped away from me. This organization has taught me how to love myself and how to love others, and it has given a voice to countless youth who so desperately needed it. Bloom365 has allowed me to fully realize the meaning of the expression "Be the Change". Its lessons about dating abuse are transformational, and fundamental to the future of our youth.

CNAW Melissa's giving goal
by Melissa Pecak
Camp Not-A-Wheeze is a camp that is dedicated to educating children ages 7-14, with moderate to severe asthma, about how to manage their lives with asthma. The camp is a week long recreational/educational camp that children with asthma can attend. I have a passion for this organization as I too enjoy teaching children and their families learn about how they can successfully manage their asthma and lead an active life.
I have a personal connection with asthma, as my son also suffers from this diagnosis, but it does not slow him down. He is a very active sports player with a passion for baseball. I also have a cousin who unexpectantly died from a severe asthma attack.
I would like to be able to send at least 3 children with asthma to camp with a full scholarship. I need everyone's help to achieve this. My goal is to raise $2000 for this organization.

Help Build a Monument to Compassion
by Vernon Parker
Our organization partners with other charities who serve children with illness, disability or significant life challenges are selected to nominate children they believe would benefit from a night of respite. The child, family, and friends visit the Crime Fighting Cave for an evening of surprises and delight. With the kitschy-ness of the 1960's television adventures of the Caped Crusader and his trusty sidekick, Boy Wonder, the group is given a hands-on tour, through the millionaire's study, down the poles to the Crime Fighting Cave. Tongue and cheek humor abound throughout the evening, with all children taking a ride in the original Batmobile. The night culminates with the child gifting a donation to the nominating charity and a second charity that helped the family during their journey. Since 2014, the Colten Cowell Foundation has donated more $1.000,000 to 160+ charities, serving more than 300 families and impacting nearly 6,000 lives.

Bringing the Bard to Flagstaff Since 2015
by Julie Hammonds
Seeing "Hamlet" when I was 16 changed my life. The guy who played Hamlet was a hunk, for one thing. But it's been decades since that day, and the power of poetry and the pure, visceral impact of theater still move me. I'm raising money for the Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival on AZ Gives Day because I want other kids (and adults) to have access to Shakespeare, performed with gusto and gumption, right here at home.
