Good morning, all!
After a month of polls and discussions, the Domain has indicated that they would like to support the following charities for the remainder of 2019:
Arizona Animal Welfare league
Arizona’s oldest and largest no-kill shelter, offering housing and support for animals in need. AAWL also offers educational opportunities for the community as well as youth opportunities and a low cost veterinary clinic. AAWL offers opportunities for foster care for animals, volunteering, cash and supply donations.

BackPack 4 Kids
Founded in 2015 by 11 year old Kaitlyn Martinez – BackPack 4 kids seeks to ensure that every child can succeed in school by providing free school supplies. Additionally, BackPack for kids supplies Love Bundles for children in shelters and foster care, hygiene kits to children who may not have access to hygiene products otherwise, and Holiday gifts for children in need. BackPack 4 Kids offers opportunities for fund raising, donations (cash and supplies) and welcomes volunteers to help organize their “store” on weekends.
Child Crisis Center
Child Crisis Arizona’s mission is to provide Arizona’s children a safe environment, free from abuse and neglect, by creating strong and successful families. We do this through prevention, intervention and education programs designed to support the thousands of children and families who may be at risk. All of our work centers on our vision of safe kids…strong families.
Child Crisis Center offers opportunities for volunteering, cash and supply donations.
Lost Our Home
Founded in 2008 as a grassroots response to the housing crisis that left thousands of people displaced and thousands of pets abandoned, Lost Our Home provides no-kill options for pet owners who are being displaced and cannot take their pets with them. Additionally, they offer a pet-food back and a low-income boarding program. Lost Our Home is also partnered with the Sojourner Center and manages a companion pet shelter so women escaping violence can keep their pets while they heal. The main shelter is being renovated at present, but supplies/donations and volunteers are still needed.
If you are interested in sponsoring a specific activity for one of these Charities, please contact myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kristen (email@example.com).
