A beautiful greyhound has escaped his home of a very dear friend in West Phoenix - Dreaming Summit Litchfield Park area, West Phoenix. Please comment if you know anyone in this area that could look out for him, he's newly adopted and kind of scared, his collar was off temporarily when he escaped and we're all very worried.

Comment for his contact info if you know anything!

Volunteer Opportunity 4 Anthology [Jun. 25th, 2007|09:26 am]
Phoenix Volunteers Forum

azanthology
Hi all-

Here are the details on the Calendar Coordinator Volunteer position. I also have some opportunities later on that I tacked on the end. Let me know if you are interested in taking on any of the opportunities.


The Calendar Coordinator

This is actually a two part role. Part 1 is to create a list of the online places locally in the greater Phoenix area that have event calendars. The idea is to keep that list updated monthly and to send in to me a list of the URL's (web site addresses) of the calendars with their name.

Part 2 is to actually enter Anthology's events into the calendars and to keep them up to date with web links, phone numbers, etc. and to remove outdated listings, etc. For example, I think NewTimes still promotes an event we did at The Anthology Café, which has been closed two years now :).

That's Pretty Much it, so if you want it, send me an email, first come first served, and we can get started.


Other stuff

One of our Board members, Resa Ferreira, is working on a storytelling event called Tellebration for later this year (October/November), and she is looking for 2-5 volunteers to help her. To find out more information, please feel free to email her directly at resa@cox.net.

If anybody's free on Wednesday, we are doing a poetry slam at The Paper Heart, and we can use a greeter at the door. It would be from 8p-11p or so. Email me for details.

We can also use a greeter or two at the new poetry event we are starting July 18th, at The Chyro Arts Venue in Scottsdale. Again, send me an email if you are interested.

Anyone want to help distribute our print Calendar, carpe Diem, Adero Utero? It's a poetry calendar, and if you have a coffeeshop/bookstore or music store nearby to your house, we can drop some copies in the mail for you to drop off.

Got something you want to do? Lemme know, and we'll see if we can make it happen...

Thanks for the support!

Calling all college students! [Aug. 9th, 2006|01:37 pm]
Phoenix Volunteers Forum

save_usa
Did you know that 89 million Americans volunteer?

Better yet, did you know that 46% of 18-24 year olds volunteer 3 or 4 hours a week?

It's true! This shows a dedication to volunteerism and political action beyond what students are generally known for.

This age group is the incoming generation of voters, policy makers and future leaders of America, and absolutely vital to the continuing success of volunteer service in their communities.

S.A.V.E. (Support American Volunteer Efforts) currently has a bill before Congress that if passed would grant up to $2,000 in a tax rebate to people who volunteer for nonprofit organizations.

The only way to pass this bill is to let Congress know that Americans support it!

Go to the S.A.V.E. website and vote for the S.A.V.E. bill! You could win a case of Annie's Macaroni and Cheese and also help make the S.A.V.E. bill a reality.

A-Team Time again! [Aug. 1st, 2006|10:39 pm]
Phoenix Volunteers Forum
bobdapoet
Friday, as we all know, is First fridays, and it's time to be hitting up the fine Phoenix art faithful to come to our readings and slams...

But we need your help...

This month, we'll be handing out flyers for Essenza, Phoenix GPPS, Wordspoken and The Cthulhu Beach Party, and we could sure use some extra hands to get the job done.

If you'd like to help, we will be meeting up in front of the Burton Barr Main Library at 7:30PM, where we will hit the Roosevelt area first, then hit Grand and relax at The Paper Heart after.

Drop me an email if you are interested in joining us us in this ALWAYS fun endeavor!

S.A.V.E [Jul. 12th, 2006|02:16 pm]
Phoenix Volunteers Forum

save_usa
S.A.V.E (Support American Volunteer Efforts) is a nonprofit organization campaigning to pass bill HR4387, which is currently under review in the Ways & Means Committee of Congress.

If the bill were to be passed it would offer up to $2,000 per year in a tax rebate to every volunteer.

Volunteers are two a half times more likely to donate back to non-profits where they volunteer, and their communities. Rather than giving tax breaks to the wealthiest 1% of society this would help to put money back where it is sorely needed.

SAVE is a grass-roots organization. Our office has a staff of three full time employees and several volunteers. We're in the midst of a nation wide press release, selling the idea of SAVE to the media, non-profit and volunteer agencies around the country.

The only way to pass this bill is to let congress know that Americans support it.
