Support Keep Kids Alive Drive 25by Jennie Circo
Hello, My name is Jennie Circo and I am participating in the 2019 Pikes Peak "Live Forward!" Weekend. A group of us will be heading up Pikes Peak to honor those lives taken much too soon from us. This year I will be honoring Cari Widmyer and Tristan White. Tristan was 14 when he was struck by a car while running with his wrestling teammates. Tristan would be graduating high school this year. Cari was 43 when she was struck by a car while riding bikes with her father. It's been said that she died doing what she loved but her life was taken much too soon. So was Tristan's. Live Forward!® has connected with over 150 families who have experienced the death of a loved one due to a traffic incident. Many of the families participate in our annual Live Forward! & Run to Remember 5K here in Omaha, as well as our annual team trek to the summit of Pikes Peak each August. Simply put, these events bring families together to celebrate their loved ones, share stories, and make memories. Inspiration abounds!
Orphans of the Stormby Lorie Jenkins
Each year I dedicate my Muddy Paws Cheer Page to one of my own pets. We've had some fun with that in the past. This year, after working with the Muddy Paws team to save animals left behind in the catastrophic spring floods in Nebraska and Iowa I am devoting my efforts to the 200+ animals we saved from flooded areas; to the families we will continue to help with expenses for their pets while they rebuild; and to my phenomenal volunteer family who has raised Heaven and Earth to save so many dogs, cats, goats, chickens, sheep, possums and one temperamental pot-bellied pig. Please give until it feels good.

Just G-I-V-E-! The Knoell's fundraising page for OHBby RaeAnn Knoell
As many of you probably know, I have been working at Omaha Home for Boys for a couple of years now, and I've got to be honest, before becoming employed at OHB, my knowledge of the population of at-risk youth right here in our community was pretty limited. Wow! Have my eyes been opened to the need that exists here in Omaha to help these young adults! Omaha Home for Boys does so much to help teens and young adults, especially those who are aging out of foster care with limited to no support system in place. While I do not work directly with the youth here at the Home on a daily basis, I do have the privilege of sharing their stories, and the stories they tell are truly heartbreaking. But thankfully, many are connected with Omaha Home for Boys where they receive assistance with housing, education, employment, transportation, basic life skills and most importantly, a SAFE environment filled with CARING mentors. It's amazing what a little positive reinforcement and listening can do to help these teens get on the right track! I hope that you can join Jared and I in supporting Omaha Home for Boys during Omaha Gives. Not only is this organization near and dear to our hearts, but I have seen first hand the positive impact OHB makes on youth in our community who will some day be our neighbors and coworkers!
Donate to help the future of our nation.by Katie Lyon
Summary Phoenix Academy is a school that serves children who struggle with reading, writing and mathematics. The staff and I work diligently on trying to get the students the interventions they need to help them perform at grade level. Phoenix Academy is a very special school and works miracles. Because we are nonprofit, we have two major fundraisers, our scholarship luncheon and Omaha Gives. These kids need you and need your donation. They deserve it, and trust me when I say that every dollar counts. Every dollar that you donate today will be matched! If you donate $10 than $20 is donated. If you donate $20 than $40 is donated. Educating the next generation will make a difference! Please invest in the future of our nation. Thank you, Katie
