Pete Salsich's Angel Band Project Campaign
by Pete Salsich III
It's a harrowing statistic: Every two minutes, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. Almost certainly, we all know someone who is a survivor. I am very proud to serve on the Board of The Angel Band Project (www.angelbandproject.org) - an organization that makes a huge difference in the lives of these survivors through the power of music.
I'm trying to raise $1500 towards Angel Band's overall goal of $5000. $1500 will pay for 20 survivors to go through our 8-week music therapy program and reclaim their voices. I'll hope you'll lend your voice to theirs with a donation. Thank you!

Amplify Artscope's Impact!
Every year at Artscope, hundreds of children walk through the doorway of our cottage in Tower Grove Park and set off on an adventure to transform every day objects into wildly magical creations.

In 2017, 600 children took part in our summer Camp:Create! and our School Daze programs. And thanks to the generosity of donors like you, we were able to offer scholarships to 11% of our campers. Throughout the year, our teaching artists-in-residence provide quality arts education to over 360 kids at St. Francis Cabrini, Marian Middle School, and the Biome School. You might see us out in the neighborhood at fun events like Terror in Tower Grove Park. Or maybe you've enjoyed the artistic beauty of one of our three murals in the Tower Grove neighborhoods.

When you support Artscope, you are supporting a commitment to creativity, diversity, ecology, cooperation, and play! You are supporting the youth of our community and helping to build a brighter future, one creative thinker at a time.

Special Equipment for Special Kids
by Sunanda Dhananjay
Arya came into our lives and left footprints on our hearts. Arya needed special care and support. We were overwhelmed with the support from Saint Louis community where she was born. "The Arya Foundation" is her legacy to share the same support and happiness we received with other children like Arya.
The Arya Foundation is a Saint Louis-based nonprofit that aims to financially contribute towards the purchase of medical aids and adaptive equipment for children with special needs living in Saint Louis.
We are proud to say that we are growing at a pace faster than I could have imagined. But we can not do this alone. We need our community support in making "The Arya Foundation" as amazing as it can be.
Come together and continue to support this powerful cause that is very personal to me. Make your way around donating for a special cause or referring a child to be helped by "The Arya Foundation".

Help Bring Dance to Our Senior Community
by Molly Ryan
The Big Muddy kicked off its Senior Embrace outreach program in 2012. In its conception, the program included performances for retirement homes, later adding dance workshops for seniors with Alzheimer's disease and performances to help raise awareness for organizations such as the Alzheimer's Association, Maturity and its Muse, and CASEfest. After what started as a few small ways to give back to the community, the company was staggered with the positive impact the performances were having on their audiences. This inspired the development of The Big Muddy Dance Company's Senior Embrace program with the mission to consistently bring high quality dance experiences to our senior community.

YOU-Niquely Social Leadership Programs
Buddies Not Bullies' YOU-Nique programs are so important because they provide real opportunities for kids to actually practice and implement what they are learning, and to build skills and self-confidence. It's not just a place where they can sit around and talk about making a difference, or sign a pledge and then forget about it. The YOU-Nique programs integrate these kids into something much larger than themselves.

Bullying Prevention Programs
Each year there are many indications that our programs are making a positive impact in the lives of children. The stories are short and fleeting, making them difficult to capture in words, but the impact is profound nonetheless. Interacting with kids as their perceptions broaden over time, hearing from parents of former students how their child has grown and are using the strategies they were exposed to in previous years, hearing from former students who have successfully kept themselves safe in an increasingly volatile on-line environment - these are all extremely profound indications of the benefit of Buddies Not Bullies work.

Help Canterbury Hire to Inspire!
Canterbury Enterprises, Inc.'s Hire to Inspire program will provide exceptional training, experience, and temporary employment to individuals with developmental disabilities who are actively seeking community hire via a supported employment agency, in the lengthy interim between application and acquisition.

Hire to Inspire is a new program for Canterbury, one that applies our comprehensive combination of training, support, empowerment, provision of services, and employment in a new direction toward this disregarded niche population.
