A new goal for the new year

Jan 10, 2024 | News

The end of the old year and the beginning of the new are both busy times, filled with the sharing of gifts with family and friends. And that’s why I want to send a personal thank you to all of those who took the time to include us in the sharing of gifts during this crucial holiday season for The Sunny Center Foundation.

It has been a difficult year with the loss of Peter Pringle, my beloved life partner. Peter’s passing has also created a vacuum where the love between us powered the work that we do. Your love, in the form of the support that you have given us, has helped to fill that vacuum.

Sometimes I don’t have the personal information to be able to send an individual thanks. So, to all of those who made a special donation at the end of the year, I want to say thank you and bless you for helping The Sunny Center Foundation to keep on helping our growing Exoneree family in the U.S. and around the world.

Love is what started us on the path of helping others. And love is what is keeping us going  now. We have made it into the new year of 2024, and the need for our services continues to grow with the success of the various Innocence Projects and clinics as more and more wrongfully convicted people are released.

Our goal in 2024 is to start being able to provide services for the aging members of our community, our Exoneree family. So please keep that love coming in whatever form you are able.

You have my most heartfelt gratitude for the love and support that you continue to show for The Sunny Center Foundation and our work to help others.

Remembering Peter

My dear Peter is gone.
We sang him home on the last day of the year, gathered around his bedside as we had done for so many days before.

‘Send them green.’ A special message from a Sunny Center supporter!

“I had the wonderful opportunity to be a guest at the Sunny Center this past July. My first trip to Ireland, it always is a magical moment to visit friends who live overseas…”

Exonerees are succeeding, thanks to you!

Helping people exonerated of crimes they did not commit, setting them back on the path to a fulfilling life, is a monumental task that we depend on the dedication of volunteers, both near and far, to achieve.

Even in summer, the work doesn’t stop

We’re in midsummer now, with its long days that stretch until 11 in the evening here in Ireland. It’s a busy time for everyone and everything.

The power of art to heal and renew

Did you know that Peter was a woodworker and an artist? He created so many things. But more importantly, he taught those skills to other Exonerees when they visited the Center.

A message from Sunny about Peter

The time has come to say farewell to our dear Peter, who is in the process of transitioning from this body and this plane.

Finding Peace, Joy and Hope

The events in Ukraine over the past several days have been ever-present in all of our lives through the daily news and constant social media. These times can be especially difficult for Exonerees because of the traumas they are working to overcome.

Love Is Always the Answer

Winter is always a little bit quieter than the rest of the year. After a long day spent maintaining the Sunny Healing Center and getting it ready for visitors, it’s time for us to cuddle up with the kittens and, of course, Barney, on chilly winter evenings with a warm fire in the hearth.

A Happy, Healthy and Healing New Year to All

Love has no barriers and no limits. And neither does our gratitude for your continuing support and friendship. Know that you are never alone, because you are part of our family.

Happy Holidays to Our Friends Near and Far!

These are extraordinary times. And you’ve all been extraordinary supporters. Thanks to you, we’ve been able to keep helping Exonerees in the midst of a global emergency.
