Mark and The Arc

    Posted under: alaskans   anchorage   health  

Tomorrow marks the start of a new year, and for Pick.Click.Give. it's the start of the fifth year Alaskans will use their power to make a difference by sharing some of their Permanent Fund Dividends with causes they care about.

One way Alaskans are choosing to make a difference is in the lives of families who experience disabilities. In "Mark and The Arc," we take a look at how Alaskans have used Pick.Click.Give. to help provide a home for Mark Falsey. 

"Your parenting doesn't stop with any of your children," says Mark's mother, Margaret.  "But it really doesn't stop when you have a child with a disability."

Helping Alaskans in crisis

    Posted under: alaskans   emergency   juneau   shelter  

In your average roomful of 100 Alaska women, well over half of them – 59 – have been physically abused or sexually assaulted in their lifetimes.

When you pass a woman on the sidewalk, in the aisle at the grocery store, on a ski trail or in the car next to you, there’s a better than 50-50 chance she is among the victims.

This epidemic knows no geographical bounds. The rates can’t be attributed to one region, or one town, or to big towns, or to villages.

For many, this statistic isn’t just sad -- it’s a little hard to accept. It just doesn’t seem possible. But for the social workers, legal advocates, prosecutors and investigators who work in the field, it’s completely believable.

“I guess one thing I’m struck by is there’s sort of these two opposing perceptions, and I think both are accurate,” said Saralyn Tabachnick, executive director of Juneau’s AWARE shelter.  [Read More... ]

Nourishing those in need

    Posted under: anchorage   humanitarian  

At 12:55 p.m. on a Saturday, a dozen or so cars sat idling in the snowy parking lot of the Fairview Community Recreation Center in Anchorage’s Fairview neighborhood.

Cardboard boxes, backpacks and bags were neatly queued on the ground as people, thoroughly bundled up against the cold, chatted with one another in a variety of languages. Smiles came readily.

One older, bearded man called out, “Hey, I got somethin’ for ya!” Handing a copy of a flier advertising the Food Bank of Alaska’s Thanksgiving Blessing out the window of a tired old pickup, he added “Come and get ya some groceries, and don’t forget your fork and spoon!”  [Read More... ]

Busting the boring webinar

    Posted under: training  

Webinar.  The word itself can send chills down the spines of many nonprofit professionals.

We’ve all experienced the horror of a bad webinar: phone wedged uncomfortably between our ear and shoulder, coffee in one hand and mouse in the other, staring vacantly at the computer screen while we try to stay tuned in to a sluggish presentation.

We know how frustrating a boring webinar can be, and that’s why we’re trying to do it differently at Pick.Click.Give.

How?  [Read More... ]
