MARCH 2021: BLIND CAT RESCUE & SANCTUARY, INC.
We are a lifetime care sanctuary for blind, FIV & Leukemia positive cats located in St. Pauls, North Carolina (USA).
In 2005, we built our first building as a safe place for blind cats who were deemed not adoptable by regular shelters and were going to be euthanized because they were blind. In 2011, we built a second shelter to provide a safe place for Leukemia positive (FELV+) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV+) cats who otherwise would be killed because they tested positive for these viruses.
At our cage free no-kill shelter in St. Paul’s NC, we are presently caring for 80+ cats whose age, medical condition, temperament or other special needs makes them even more precious in our eyes.

JANUARY 2021: NEW ORLEANS UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB FUNDRAISER
As we all know, soccer is an unfortunately expensive game to play in the United States. There are too many folks that seek to profit off our beautiful game. That is not our aim in starting New Orleans United FC. We want to bring you true community-based high-level soccer without any of the socioeconomic and cultural barriers you might find elsewhere.
That being said, starting a grassroots organization with the combined resources of two college students and two recent college graduates is a tall task. For this to succeed, we need the support of all New Orleanians, including financially. While other organizations derive their support from one wealthy benefactor or the competing interest of several benefactors, we would like to be supported by the community we want to serve. Being free from outside influences will help us be undeterred in our commitment to you, the city of New Orleans.
We are aware that these are tough economic times for many of you, but New Orleans United FC would love to have your help in trying to establish itself. As we have put on our website, we are committed to transparency at all levels. To make good on our promise to you, we have published all of the expenses with which we need help paying for on our Go Fund Me page.
We hope that you will join and support us in our exciting project.
