Saving Hope Foundation

The Saving Hope Foundation desires to help end animal euthanasia in shelters in America by providing the ways and means for people to afford their pets and not have to surrender them to shelters. There is a devastating statistic of 2-3 million dogs that are euthanized in shelters a year in the United States and we would like to help reduce that number to zero. We hope to improve this statistic by helping provide free or discounted spay and neutering, vaccinations, and discounts on food for those who cannot afford these expenses. We would also like to encourage and help facilitate easy adoptions to help save lives, end puppy mills and stop over breeding. But most of all we want to prevent abuse by connecting animals with loving owners daily.

Suzan G Komen Foundation | Putting on the Pink charity luncheon

In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became the Susan G. Komen® organization and the beginning of a global movement. What was started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donor names has now grown into the world's largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, we've invested more than $2.9 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. Our efforts helped reduce deaths from breast cancer by 38 percent between 1989-2014 and we won't stop until our promise is fulfilled.
