Dear Friends of The Sunny Center,
And so, we want to especially show love to all our exoneree friends around the globe. We wish them our heartiest best wishes for hope and peace. And we think Valentine’s Day is a darling opportunity for you to offer a valentine to an exoneree in the form of a gift to the Sunny Center. A Valentine’s Day donation to the Sunny Center is as sweet as a dozen sweetheart roses, but it lasts so much longer!
There is an exoneree out there hoping for your generosity and counting on the difference that donation will make in his or her life, helping restore their sense of wellbeing, fairness and faith in a just world.
Thanks so much. We are deeply grateful for your kindness.
OUR EXONEREE GUESTS AND VISITORS
It was with great joy that we reconnected with our old friend Brian Farrell, founder of the Innocence Project of Iowa. And scheduling challenges forced us to postpone our exoneree family visit, but it’s been rescheduled for this month. We look forward to it with open hearts and arms.
Our network of friends, supporters and volunteers continues to grow. This past month, a supporter began following our work on social media after hearing about the Sunny Center through her friend Tress, who has been our faithful multi-visit volunteer. Through Tress, she became so interested in our mission, she might volunteer herself, which is timely, as we are currently scheduling volunteers for the remainder of 2020. So we are putting out a call for anyone interested in offering help to the Sunny Center in the coming months. Perhaps you have a special skill or maybe you have a particular interest? If so, please get in touch with us here. We’d love to hear from you!
OUR FURRY AND FEATHERED FRIENDS
This past month our chickens dealt with a dusting of snow, the dogs with high winds and wet weather and the cats with navigating the kitty door in winter storms. But through it all, the house was warm and there was plenty of love to go around to keep everyone happy!
We have just returned from a trip to NYC where we met with our Board and discussed our busy activism schedule for 2020. It was decided that we would deepen our exoneree outreach program and strengthen our fundraising efforts. We are grateful for the continued support of our valuable board without whom we couldn’t achieve the work we do. Stay tuned for further announcements about what’s coming up in 2020!!!
And please, consider making a recurring donation – no matter what size – and that will literally keep the lights on, the heat going and our bond strong, no matter what the weather brings.
Peace and Love,
Sunny and Peter
