Weekly Update April 4, 2011

Once again, it is a beautiful breezy day here in the Conejo Valley and a great way to start the week! As I shared last week we’ll be doing some changes to the website and now that our new year has officially begun, you’ll find pictures of your new chair officers with the intention of getting pictures of each of the officers – elected and appointed – up by the end of the month.

Last Wednesday there was a great presentation by Teresa Schachtel, Pediatric Vision Screener from CHEMPI sharing the many activities and stories that are a direct result of your donations to the California-Hawaii Elks Major Project or, as it is affectionately called, the Purple Pig. One success story is available for you to read by following this link http://www.chea-elks.org/Micsha.pdf. The story tells of a young girl, Mischa, diagnosed with cerebral palsy, left side hemiplegia, and a rare brain disorder, schizencephaly in May 1991. While the doctor suggested to her family that they might want to find a facility that could provide long-term care, as Mischa would always be dependent on others for her needs, her Mom found her way to the Elks – Coalinga Lodge #1613. The story shares Mischa’s success through high school including walking, cooking, driving, earning a letter in track and field for shot put, and making the high school honor roll with a 3.6 GPA. Additionally, I learned from Mischa that she will be graduating from college this year. This is a far cry from the outlook presented by the doctors in 1991. So remember the next time you’re asked to help, this is just one of thousands of lives touched by YOUR DONATIONS to the Purple Pig!

As ever, thank you again for being part of the world of Elkdom – your support makes us stronger and allows us to help others in ways that are hard to describe.

See you at the lodge!

Sincerely,
Kira Wagner

This is a personal testimony since I’ve been using this for less than 8 weeks —I use the search feature and to date, according to iGive, I’ve raised $5.59 for the Elks National Foundation just by using the service and this isn’t a result of any additional purchases. It isn’t a lot as a stand-alone amount but imagine how much we could do for ENF if everyone that uses the internet to search would use this service!
