The Amazing Raise 2022
The Amazing Raise is an annual event and serves as one of the largest and most important fundraisers for SAINTS every year.
Yes… It is time again for our annual The Amazing Raise
again. Over the last two years this has become our largest and most
successful fundraiser. We are so lucky to have had a ready made
successful online fundraiser to grow during the Covid 19 years. We
are crossing our fingers that The Amazing Raise will be successful
again this year because we have mighty huge plans for the money we
hope to raise. Our goal is $60,000.
HOW THE AMAZING RAISE FUNDRAISER WORKS
The Amazing Raise has always put the fun into fundraising. And this
year is no different. The SAINTS’ are divided into 4 teams based on
that part of SAINTS they consider home. There is the House , the MP
Room, the Barn, and the Shop. Each group is on a race to raise the
most amount of money for their respective areas; it’s all very
exciting and for such a great cause! Each group has a team captain.
We will be sharing their stories in an effort to showcase the type of
animals that come to live at SAINTS.
WHAT THE MONEY RAISED WILL GO TO
Outstanding veterinarian bills and outstanding operational bills
that affect the animals (i.e. feed, medication, cleaning
supplies). Making sure our day to day operational issues are always
our first priority.
Once the above is covered we hope to do the following
Electrical Upgrades - As SAINTS has grown the need for
electrical expanded, however the panels have not been
professionally upgraded. In an effort to save money, the current
system has become overloaded, rewired multiple times, and every
breaker is being drawn to capacity. Daily tasks and needs are
regularly reviewed and prioritized to avoid tripping the system
(example: heat and dehumidifier cannot be run at the same time
which results in mold and mildew buildup). At its current state,
the electrical is insufficient and a potential hazard. Due to the
locations of receptacles and breakers, extension cords are heavily
relied on throughout the property which also creates a tripping
hazard. In summary, upgrading the electrical at SAINTS is a high priority.
MP Room Repairs - The buildings are now over 30 years old and
the MP Room that was renovated by us at a time when we had little
money has many, many issues. We need to correct plumbing issues,
replace the roof and windows and address mole and mildew issues.
New Furnace - The furnace in the House is outdated and rusted.
Although it works it likely is inefficient and is living on
Barn Upgrades - We would like to create a goat playground
(enrichment) area. They need to have things to climb up and over
and around and we would like to provide that. We also are looking
to build a permanent mud pit for our pig Hazel. To do this we
need to reinforce the fencing around the barn area so are looking
to replace it.
