Gottaluvsuggies Glider Rescue SC


UPDATE:

Many of you know Laurie (Suggiemom/LGG owner) and her escapades with "Gottaluvsuggies Glider Rescue" here in SC. What you may not know, is that Laurie moved up north, to Vermont. So, now there are 2 rescue efforts...

1. Gottaluvsuggies Glider Rescue VT: Laurie will run this out of Vermont
2. Gottaluvsuggies Glider Rescue SC: Jana (gr8pots) and Sari (Sariyappa) will run this out of SC

This was a natural progression of events, since Jana was fully involved in Gottaluvsuggies w/ Laurie for the past 2 years, with some help from myself as well. This is a new endeavor for us, and we had a situation recently with 3 rescue gliders, and got some help from the LGG vet fund (THANKS for helping the gliders!).
white flag Please understand, that there will be limits to the amount of Gliders (and glider slaves) that we will be able to assist at this current time. We do not want to get in over our heads, before we even get started.

These are two separately run rescue efforts, even though we share a similar name. We thought it would be beneficial (and less confusing) to locals if we kept the name for those that have been involved in the past, as well as in the future. We are in the process of many new and exciting things, and we will continue to update the glider community as things progress.

1. We have filed a 33-31-202: article of incorporation for a Non Profit Status with the state of SC - This is the first step to obtaining a 501c3.
2. We are currently working on a plan to raise money for the "Gottaluvsuggies Glider Rescue SC".
The first monies will go to paying back the LGG Vet Fund. Additional monies will be used to pay for the current rescues. Additional donations will be put directly into the Vet Account at Dr. Gleaton's (Roper Mountain Animal Hospital) for future rescue endevours. Dr. G's info is public knowledge, and all money will be verifiable after the money is collected.
3. We are going to have a Critter Bin Auction as our first attempt to raise this money. This is a "non raffle".

We recently ran a photo contest, (congratulations Lauri Magiceyez w/ the winning photo). This photo will be the item (download) that can be purchased in the Critter Bin Auction. The idea is, that you may purchase downloads of the winning photo (no limit to how many downloads you wish to purchase) and with EACH download purchased, you will get a FREE CHANCE to win this one time promotional gift, a Big Basket of Goodies! There can only be ONE winner of the "Big Basket of Goodies". This is not a raffle, and there will be explicit instructions for all those who participate.

ddream We are currently looking for donations for the "Big Basket of Goodies". If you would like to participate, please PM me at SariYappa on either LGG, Glider Central, SGN or Glider Gossip. Everyone is eligible to participate! (I will also make a separate thread for this topic)

Items currently in the Big Basket of Goodies:
1. Hippie Pouch WITH Matching Toy from The Suggie Smart Mart by SariYappa
2. Gift Certificate for a Custom Cage Liner, Corner Hammock, and Bridge from Jana's Suggie Shoppe
3. A Cage Set WITH Matching Toys from Jen (jen102375)

We will be contacting vendors via PM for possible donations. If you are contacted, and are not willing/able to participate at this time, please do not be offended by the request. A simple reply of "No Thank You" will suffice. ducking
hugging Please remember, this is for "the good of the glider" and rescue sugar gliders in need. Any and all people's generosity would be greatly appreciated!

thankyou all, and we will update you as things progress.

Sari & Jana

Sari, I missed it. What are you going to do with this big basket of goodies? Is it a raffle, when and where? Do you have a deadline for getting items?

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Alicia aka Queenduck or Sissy pouch Queen, ask me where to get them.

Duh, I had to read that like 3 times before I figured it out. LOL. OK, so has it started yet? If so please post critterbin link here, we do allow them, if not, post it when it is ready. I don't have anything extra right now or I'd donate and I have no time. So I'll buy pictures when it is time Smile

Update on GottaLuvSuggies Glider Rescue SC...

Update #1:
I (Sari) was recently invited to assist in a zoology class, to share my knowledge on Sugar Gliders & Hedgehogs. It was a lot of fun, and a huge success. All day, class after class, showing off the babies, and talking about the things I love, it was a no-brainer for me! The teacher got all the classes together to make a donation for my babies, and our rescue efforts. We were able to pay back the LGG vet fund IN FULL. What an unexpected SCORE!!
Thanks to the LGG vet fund for being there when we needed you. We are more than pleased to be able to return the favor to another glider in need!!

Update #2:
Recently we held the "SSS in SC" Glider gathering at my house. It was a huge success, w/ lots of food, suggie family, sugar gliders, donations, gifts, auctions... we made lots of money for rescues in need!!

We successfully raised several hundred dollars for GLS Glider Rescue SC!! Thanks to all of you that participated, we could not have had nearly as much fun & success w/o you!!!
(sorry, I don't have the exact dollar amount w/ me, but I didn't want to delay this post!)

Our efforts are now on getting ready for the SGGA, and getting ready for the picture sales!!!!!!! Very Happy

It's about time!!

You may be asking
"Did I miss out?"
"When is this 'non-raffle' going to take place?"
"Did they get my donations?"
"Who is going to win?"

... it's almost here. We will be starting to "sell the winning picture" in the next 2 weeks, so stay tuned for further information, and instructions on how YOU could have a chance to win all this wonderful stuff!!!

Thanks for waiting for us. We are a new organization, with only 2 people running it, and there was the SSS, and the SGGA and lots of rescues to take care of...

Now it's time to have a little fun! So stay tuned... hamster dance

oops My apologies...

I have to give my sincere apologies. I am so sorry to all of you in the community. My life has taken a very different turn in the last several months, and the efforts of Glider Rescue were larger than I could have imagined. This has severely affected the outcome of our 'non-raffle' that was supposed to be held months ago. oops

I started with great intentions, made a big stink about it, got things rolling with vendors, and here we are... still no raffle Sad
I want all vendors and bidders alike to know WE STILL HAVE ALL THE DONATIONS!! They are still sitting on my pool table where I took the long awaited pictures, and never posted them. Please accept my apologies.

If you would like to hear the long, drawn out version of how my life has drastically changed in the last several months, I can pour my heart out here. But the bottom line is that I want you to know that the rescue efforts have been going well, we were able to raise money from other efforts, and therefore the non-raffle was put aside due to personal circumstances. NOT OK! But it is, what it is.

I am sending a personal apology to all vendors that were nice enough to donate for our cause. I am giving them the option to 'opt out' and if so, I'll pay to ship the donations back to the donator (from my personal funds). Once I have all of the replies, I plan to post the pics of what is left in the goody basket, and we'll have a good 'ol fashioned critterbin auction, to raise the money and get some awesome prizes out to one lucky winner! Very Happy

So if you are still in the mood to win a great big basket of goodies, then the effort will continue! Smile

I've still got "Chip" the little baby that had his back torn apart from his mommy. He if FINALLY all healed up, and getting ready for his new home with Shellie. We are hoping that the intros are successful, but Jana & I will be an integral part of the process. We'll just have to wait and see.

I hope you accept our apologies, and continue to support our grave efforts. I am embarrassed by my non-actions, and do not want to isolate ourselves from the wonderful people that have supported us through this new beginning.
Thank you for reading my post. hangingout

We have had an overwhelming response from vendors, all positive, and NOT ONE vendor has backed out of their donations! I've said it before, and I'll say it again...

Suggie People Rock!!

I promise to keep updating. I am waiting for 2 more responses.

** If you have donated an item for this cause, and did not get a recent PM from me, PLEASE POST HERE or PM ME IMMEDIATELY!!!

Again, THANK YOU EVERYONE!! hugging

OK package is in the mail. I am sorry it is so late. I am having alot of stress here on the home front. George may not ever be able to work again. So big changes are coming up in my life. Which are probably not going to be good.
