Dear Friends of The Sunny Center,
It’s 2019 and we can hardly believe it! Here has arrived a new year full of promise and hope. As for us, our promise and hope is to help more exonerees achieve happy, hopeful and productive lives. And we are aiming to expand that promise globally. Last year, we opened our home at the Sunny Center to more individual exonerees, more couples and more women exonerees from more countries than ever before. And, we also established the first exoneree community of its kind, Exonerees for Exonerees, in Tampa, Florida. We hope to expand our reach in 2019 even further.
Of course, we need your help to reach this goal. In honor of 2019, please consider a donation of $19, $119, $219 or $2019. And also consider a recurring gift of any amount, as that way your donation is a gift that keeps on giving all year long! We have dipped heavily into our resources helping exonerees who need our assistance and we hope you can help us with a donation, especially now.
We appreciate your support and look forward to sharing 2019 with you!
OUR EXONEREE GUESTS AND VISITORS
We are still working to smooth out the Visa wrinkles of our expected exoneree guest from Pakistan. And we have a long list of exonerees waiting for a spot to open up for a visit to the Sunny Center in the coming year. Any exoneree who would like to apply and would benefit from coming to the Sunny Center should get in touch as we are preparing the calendar for the year. Or if there is any exoneree who needs to be relocated to a permanent residence, please apply here and tell us about your circumstances so that we can see if we can offer a place at the Sunny Center community Exonerees for Exonerees in Florida. Anyone who wants to visit or volunteer, should also get in touch.
Sometimes our volunteers become friends and sometimes our friends become volunteers. Mary Ellen has been coming out once a month to help me keep the Sunny Center in good order. She’s a good friend as well as a good volunteer.
OUR FURRY AND FEATHERED FRIENDS
This time of year, our furry and feathered friends seem to be in relaxation mode! It’s a good time of year to lay out in front of a sunny window, spread out by the fire or hang out together in the fields.
We expect that 2019 will be even busier than 2018! We already have plans to be part of a special screening of the film Fallout and presentation at the United Nations and attend our first Sunny Center board meeting of 2019. We will keep you posted!
In the not too distant future, the Sunny Center is going to need to relocate. To date we have been renting our Sunny Center residence in Ireland but it is our goal to establish a permanent residence for the Sunny Center in order to provide continuity and the longterm stability of our work. So please look for more news to come on your social media.
As we enjoy the lengthening of days and the stronger sun, we hope for peace and love and joy in the world in 2019. We also are reassured by our network of dear friends and supporters. We thank you for working together with us to make the Dream of a better life happen for so many and, please rest assured, we ARE making a difference in the world!
Peace and Love,
Sunny and Peter
