January 2019, Update
Thank You to all the Donors that sent in feathers during the last quarter of 2018. You enabled us to send out 83 gifts, October – December, to 6 Hopi Villages and 9 New Mexico Pueblos. You have blessed so many out in the Pueblos and they are very appreciative and thankful for all that you do.
The year of 2018 was a busy year for “Feathers for Native Americans”. We visited over twenty (20) Pueblos of Arizona and New Mexico in April and May meeting new friends, looking up old friends and delivering feathers in person which is my favorite thing to do besides attending some Dances and Ceremonies.
We also got “Feathers for Native Americans” registered as a corporation and a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization as of August 1st. This means that if you have donated feathers since August 1, 2018 and didn’t get a Tax Deductible Donation Receipt and need one for your 2018 taxes they are available from that date forward assuming you itemize your deductions.
All and all it was a busy year and look forward to 2019. I’m actively looking for some potential large volume Donors that can help us to get more feathers on a regular basis and reduce the waiting period we currently have because we always have more request than feathers on hand. We will be attending the Parrot Festival in Houston Texas this month and the AFA Convention in August to hopefully sign up some additional Donors.
Again we sincerely thank all our Donors for your participation in this endeavor we have here, helping Native Americans continue in their rich Cultures & Traditions and also helping to save Wild Macaws & Parrots of Latin America, “One feather at a time”.
