In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue, Wylie TX

he vision for In-Sync Exotics started in 1998 and was officially established in 2000. As a non-profit organization we are dedicated to the rescue of neglected, abused and unwanted exotic felines. It is our dream that one day there will be no need for rescue facilities, but until that day happens, we will continue to educate the public on the unique attributes and characteristics of our residents; the realities of irresponsible and/or illegal exotic wild animal ownership and captive breeding; and the need for stronger and enforceable legislation against those who abuse exotic wild animals.By visiting schools, churches, organizations, etc., through our Community Outreach Program we hope to educate as many people as possible on the work we do, and the amazing animals in our care. As part of our goal of educating the public, we offer scheduled group tours 7 days a week.

Our Mission:

“To provide a caring, safe haven to some of God’s most beautiful creatures. We put their needs above all else; the old, the maimed, the unwanted can find sanctuary here.”

The 2019-2020 has kicked off in Grand fashion, with goals, new ideas and new opportunities for service. I am so honored to serve with each of you as we strive for serving others in so many different ways. This new year marks a NEW dawn for ROTARY – we are more flexible in structure of meetings, schedules, and membership types. Membership is key this year: we need quality members who have servant hearts and want to join us on the journey of helping others. Foundation giving has never been more important, and even though we have only two countries left in our fight to eradicate Polio, those two locales are the most challenging.
To help us in our quest, the RI Board of Trustees has given us another match; with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, now every dollar that you donate to Polio results in $4 donated to the cause.  Now that’s math that works… so please consider “upping” your giving to the Foundation and especially End Polio Now. 5810 has always been a leader in Service – I love what each club already does. We have some new projects that we are working on that many clubs may want to partner together. More information will be released on these shortly.
 
I can’t wait to visit each club and hear about the things you have planned during the year. I look forward  to sharing with you some service  projects and some FUN  events that we can all do together. I want to thank all who have taken a Leadership Role- Club Presidents and Officers, District Chairs, Assistant Governors, district officers- this organization does not work without your spirit, enthusiasm and time dedicated to Rotary. I look forward to serving with you; thanks for the opportunity.   
   
Go Make TODAY Amazing!

22 Kill Program

History of 22KILL:
In 2012, the Veterans’ Administration (VA) released a Suicide Data Report that found an average of 22 veterans die by suicide everyday. The 22KILL initiative started in 2013, at first just as a social media movement to raise awareness, and later became an official 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. 22KILL is committed to researching and understanding the common issues connected with suicide; including Post Traumatic Stress and depression, the various circumstances that they stem from, their effects on the individual, and the impact that suicide has on family, friends, and the community as a whole.

Our Purpose:
As with any issue, suicide prevention begins with raising awareness. This means educating ourselves and the general public, opening up the conversation, learning to become comfortable with it, and encouraging others to do so as well. By doing this, we’ll be able to identify the often unmentioned or unaddressed issues that can lead someone to thoughts of suicide, and confront those issues as they come, rather than letting them accumulate into something much worse.

The next step is empowerment. One of the biggest challenges veterans face is finding a sense of purpose after service. 22KILL has built a vast network of organizations and resources for veterans across the country, and whether its through our own programs or through external sources, we can provide services for mental health treatment and empowerment to help veterans find that sense of purpose. The other side of this is engagement. Often times veterans will come to realize that all they really needed was the brotherhood and camaraderie that they've been missing ever since leaving the military. The 22KILL "Tribe" allows veterans to connect with like-minded individuals and gives them the opportunity to get involved with community events and projects, and be a part of something great.
