Earlier this Year we Donated To Omaze which is an organization that has been very successful in the past few years with offerings of rewards for donation amounts. After we donated and forgot about it, we got a nice surprise in the mail today!
A Rick and Morty T-shirt Exclusive for donating to AIDS Research!
This month did not have the best of weather and there were no big events going on. However we believe May will be a wonderful month of good weather. And to that effect I plan to have many (At least 3) Road Cleanups next month. I will give an update again soon with the dates. Likewise we will be doing this in 3 different areas. Stretches of 4-10 miles of road.
I have noticed that the roads are getting pretty dirty with more than just dirt. I have seen whole trash-bags on the side of the road... I guess people couldn't wait until their trash pickup day, or couldn't drive to a dumpster (there are a bunch around if you know where to look). Plus collecting cans is always an added benefit of picking up road trash.
I am going to enter in a 5K run this summer that raises money for Domestic Abuse Awareness: "Nicole's Run" The Entry Fee is $15, and they accept donations last I checked. Personally I am taking this opportunity to raise money for that. I think at from now until the Race, this will be Our Primary Charity.
Please Check out thier site for more information and Visit back next week for Updates on the Road Cleanup. It's always good to remember that you can do good in your community whenever you have free time. You would be surprised what your community is doing and what you can volunteer for.
This month we have a local Bank that is taking Donations for Local Food Banks! As you can see on the Picture Below and above (and as you may have surmised from the Title), they are taking donations of Peanut Butter and Jelly / Jam. You can Drop off your Donation throughout the month of March at any Bangor Savings Bank Location in Maine.
Your Country Store in Hollis Center also has a donation box for this and has a deal of 2/$5 on 'Best Yet' brand Peanut butter and Jelly (Which comes in flavors of Apple, Strawberry, and Grape), so you can buy both and donate one, or donate both! Your Country Store will also Match any Donations you make!
The Chaos Brigade plans to donate all our Money from the Can's and Bottles we cleaned up off the street this past summer and fall which currently will buy 3 Peanut Butter Jars! We accept monetary and bottle donations any time. Know that it goes to these types of Charities all the time. If you want to find out how to help us in way of your time or Money, message us on our Facebook Page or tweet us @TheChaosBrigade !
Though we do not affiliate with any religious organization, we do admire thier zeal in helping out and donating to charity often no matter what religion.
The 25th Cluster of Maine's Catholic Diocese (along with many others) collect money during their lenten fasting ceremonies that goes directly to CRS (Catholic Relief Services) which as per their auto-biography "Provide life-saving assistance in nearly 100 countries".
It is the CRS's mission to: "Care for the poorest in our world and to end global poverty." Since it does not go though a hierarchy we find it a suitable first hand donation charity.
These 'Rice Bowls' have been out since February 18th and since then, the Chaos Brigade Rice bowl has had OVER $55 DEPOSITED INTO IT! Way to go everybody that helped! We Sincerely Appreciate your willingness to give to others. This may have been our biggest fund raiser so far. We will announce it again next year and hope we get an even better turnout. Remember we accept bottles and cans as well.
This summer we plan to do a few more walks to clean up trash on the roads and look for bottles and cans. We will update accordingly. Thanks again!
Hey Everyone, Its the Time for giving back to you fellow man again! Chanukah is in a couple days and Christmas and the Solstice are right around the corner. If you can't help anyone in need personally during this holiday season, please considering giving to a reputable charity or organization.
Like last year we are helping out our hometown's food pantry with Your Country Store (located on the map below). If you buy a special 'Best Yet' canned food item from Your Country Store (Priced at One Dollar), Your Country Store and The Chaos Brigade will match it. To simplify that, for every Special Dollar Can of food you buy, two will be donated. And if you wish, you can donate yours as well! This is a great way to give to those less fortunate and/or in need. We hope to have a big turn out.
If you would like to help us achieve this please send us a message from our Contact Us page or e-mail us Directly --> TheChaosBrigade@gmail.com We will usually respond promptly. Thank you every and have a happy Holiday Season.
