Stand for Seniors
by Lauren Robertson
At AGE of Central Texas, falls prevention is a key component of maintaining the health and well-being of the Central Texas senior community. One in three Americans aged 65+ falls each year, and falls are the leading cause of death and injuries among older adults.

So this year, we are asking you "Stand with AGE"
and help us prevent falls during Amplify Austin! Donations will be matched by the St. David's Foundation and various donors during specific power hours.

Little Blackie is back! And.....
by Kim Fross
It's that time of year again! Amplify Austin! This is our best time to raise funds for our non-profit organization, All Things Wild Rehabilitation! All Things Wild is mainly located within central Texas. I live in Taylor and will respond to calls from surrounding areas, such as Rockdale, Thrall, Thorndale, Hutto, and Granger. We help injured or orphaned wild animals year round from as far as we can possibly go.

A success story from the past year I would like to share is that of Blackie, an opossum that does not have white-tipped guard hairs! You don't see that much around here. She came to us last spring as an orphan with her littermates. While caring for this pack o' possums, Blackie (we hadn't named her yet) began to develop metabolic bone disease. So she was held back from release with the rest of her littermates. We tried hard to establish a better diet just for her, all the while she did have a major role in playing a mother to more baby opossums that had later come into us. She did so well, the babies would follow her around in the cage and snuggle with her. Then month by month I could start seeing her walk more normally and not so bow legged! By October, she was a star at our 1st Annual Wildfest! She was doing so good that I knew had to let her go if she was going to have a happy opossum life. But because she had a little more than usual human contact, I could only set her free in my backyard, in case she needed to come back for a little more strengthening and maturing as a wild opossum. After a few weeks of hands-off conditioning it was time to let her go.
Two months went by. And around middle of January, I see an all black opossum sitting on top of my stored away cages on my patio. I slowly approached her and realize ...It's Blackie!!! So I gave her a little treat of frozen mice and half a banana. I have placed a box on a cage for shelter and she comes back nearly every night now for her treats! One morning I went out to check on her and there are leaves all inside her box! She's made a nest, which means. she's getting ready to have babies!! So as of now, we are in the waiting stages to seeing little furry balls spill out of her pouch!

I've been with this organization for 3 1/2 years now, and am having more fun and satisfaction in my life saving wildlife. There are lots of supplies necessary to rehabilitate animals such as formula, syringes, nipples, medications, heating pads, fruits and veggies, meats for carnivores, cage cleaning supplies, the list goes on. A lot of the expenses for these items come out of our own pocket. I often spend my time and gas to drive out to people's property because they can't or won't bring an orphan or injured animal to me. So we need your help!

Please take this time to help me make my goal of raising $500.
Thanks for your support!

Stop sex trafficking of 79,000 minors in Texas by helping to identify them through the launch of the Allies Against Slavery platform.
by Krista Endsley
Currently, there are approximately 79,000 minor and youth victims of sex trafficking in Texas. There are approximately 234,000 workers who are victims of labor trafficking in Texas and an estimated 313,000 victims of human trafficking in Texas. Allies Against Slavery has developed a software platform to identify victims as they engage with organizations, such as, the juvenile justice system and youth shelters, giving these victims a chance to be saved. Early results have been promising, but with a goal to identify 8000 victims in the next 36 months your help is needed. This is your chance to make an impact and save lives.

Amplify for Cognitive Health
by Courtney Griffin
Over the past 15 years I have helplessly watched as my beloved grandpa (Big Papa) has succumbed to the perils of Alzheimer's disease. It has become my truth that my grandpa will never know my name again. He does not remember my wedding day. I will never hear the deep belly laugh that would fill the living room of my grandparent's house at every family function, or the familiar call of "Hey, my lil hootenanny" as I run into his arms on the front porch. I will not have a conversation with him ever again.

Until very recently, my grandma has been the sole caregiver, providing constant care and support every. single. day. The decision to move my grandfather to a memory care facility has been difficult for our family, but ultimately the best thing we could do for him and my grandmother. A once decorated officer of the Austin Police Department for more than 30 years, now has the cognitive functionality of a non-verbal toddler. Bearing witness to the situation has been devastating, and even more difficult knowing that there is very little I can do to support him or my grandmother as they bear this burden. Part of my narrative changed when I joined the Board of Directors for the Capital of Texas Chapter of the National Alzheimer's Organization, and I realized that my work with the board may not directly impact my family, but can help alleviate the pain for others in this situation, and can certainly pay homage to the amazing man I once knew and loved.

I share this story with you not for your sympathy, or to sadden you, but to foster the spirit of hope for the future. I hope for a world without Alzheimer's Disease, or at least one that has the ability to manage or reverse its affect. To achieve this, we must support research efforts and continue learning everything we can about the disease, and providing support to those afflicted, those affected, and especially caregivers, that often times have the hardest job with the biggest shoes to fill. With this, I ask that you will consider supporting me in my journey in reaching these goals. Your financial contribution to this campaign will help me and my team make a substantial and positive impact on the lives of memory care patients and their families across central Texas.
