@Juliya Karisu (Blue Ajah), in addition to her regular monthly donations of $100 to Power 2 Change and $80 to CRWRF, also donated $10 to the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation and $75 to Pacific Post Partum, a non-profit organization that helps moms.
@Ninya Evoneigh (Green Ajah) has started a cycle of volunteering that will continue on for the next 12 months. They will be spending 20 hours each month volunteering for IMALIVE, a crisis line. They will also be spending 50 hours each month working with the policy and abuse team at OTW (a 501(c)3). That is an astounding time commitment!! They also donated $25 to Tradewater.
We're a little bit over half-way through the Great Charity Hunt, and it's time to share statistics! :joy
A few notes before proceeding:
All of this data is based only on information shared via the tracker. Several of you are doing things that haven't been added...yet. Please, take a minute to fill out the form so I can include all the awesome in the next round of statistics.
In several cases, people noted a monetary value for donations made, or money in lieu of an actual donation due to COVID-19 restrictions. If a monetary amount was listed, I counted it in the statistics that way.
The Of All and None, Green, and Blue groups have been extra busy! Note the blue especially: quite a few members in these groups are active and help out in many different ways. Kudos to them.

That money has come from lots of different members and group activities, as broken down here:
Want to see your group represented the next time I compile data? Get to work! There are myriad opportunities within the Servant of All forum, and I'll be happy to help out if you want to do something specific but aren't sure how.
Another month over, more tracking submissions shared!
@Idine Espanyas participated in the Relief for India Raffle event organized by the direct-trade spice start up Diaspora Co.

These organizations are working on the ground in India to feed and care for vulnerable populations and reduce the stress on the healthcare system.
@Erin al'Denael donated $25 to the Center for Immigrant Protection and purchased earrings, with proceeds from the purchase going to buy oxygen for hospitals in India during their COVID-19 crisis
@Arella Mathara donated $25 to help save trans lives via COVID-19 relief in India and $36 to an organization supplying prosthetics to the people of Gaza
@Jocasta Braithe donated $5 to Doctors Without Borders via WoW's Charity Pet Program and $25 to Adventures Beyond Barriers
@Juliya Karisu donated a total of $225 to the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation (DSRF) and to CuddleCots BC.
I especially like that 4 of the donations made this month were in support of the Yellow Ajah's goals. Just like with the Green's Covenant House fundraiser, the community helped. Groups, think about this and share!
If anyone is looking for ideas and ways to help others for July, there are a couple ongoing things posted here in this forum. Ninya is matching donations up to $1000 to Feeding America; see more here. Alora can use some help with her project, David's Nightlights.
