As a charity that focuses on senior living homes, you can imaging we were completely shut down due to COVID. We have an awesome idea as a fundraiser, a raffle, for 2 ppl for 4 days in Hawaii, all inclusive.
We need everyone's help in a time sensitive raffle. We are willing to share 10-30% of the sales with anyone who is successful in promoting this raffle.
After we have raised a little bit of money, we can proceed in building a strong workforce, together.
We are looking for 2 volunteers to share the responsibility for taking care of our most important & valuable employee, financier & director of this charity. For without him this charity will potentially fall apart.
Your journey will start with a trip to Hawaii for both volunteers while we notify Stanford University of 2 caregivers capable & willing to assist. The insurance will only pay for caregivers to be flown from Hawaii with the patient. They will both be housed & fed the entire time. The ability to fundraise for any monies needed by the volunteers are assisted by several organizations. This will be the only way to be financially compensated during our journey. The timeframe is 4-6 months. Maybe a month in Hawaii, unknown time at Stanford University waiting for a heart. 2 weeks in the hospital. 3 months recovery in California before the patient will be allowed to travel again.
While in Hawaii you will be given the ability to completely vacation, visit all the tourist attractions, visit every single beach. You'll have access to a 2022 Toyota 4Runner, 2018 Tesla 3, living in a highrise condo overlooking the ocean (view included). 2 brand new jet skis for ocean activities. A scooter/motorcycle & eBikes.
You'll have the opportunity to be trained to fully run this organization, but only if you so choose. Running the charity is secondary to your primary responsibility of caregiving. Your choice to move to Hawaii after the success or failure of the transplant will be an opportunity you'll be given to include the same housing, same opportunities as your pre-surgery vacation. For this return vacation to Hawaii you'll need to agree to be trained to operate this organization.
After your arrival in Hawaii & notice that available caregivers are present, then the insurance will start making plans to relocate all parties involved to a suitable housing location as close as possible to Stanford University Hospital. There the hospital staff will fully train all individuals how to fully take care of the patient. After surgery the patient remains in the hospital for approximately 2 weeks During this time the patient should be able to regain his ability to use a bathroom on his own & the responsibility of wiping his butt will not fall on the volunteers responsibility. Your biggest responsibility will be providing medications on a strict schedule. Taught what to look for in the patient, like signs of infection.
The patient was one of the 1st people in America to purchase (2-2-2020) & use (continually) a face mask. It's very important that the prospective volunteers actively follow COVID responsible COVID behaviors, like masking up around others, sanitizing, and wearing a mask in public. Exceptions will be when at home because we need to trust you'll practice safe COVID protocols while in public. We understand the risk of COVID is not dangerous for people, unless the person takes specific medications which restrict COVID patients from utilizing post COVID medication, PLAXOVID.
This opportunity is an equal opportunity employment opportunity. We are looking for male or female. Any pronoun choice. Any race. Any age. Any sexual orientation. This will be a sexual harrasment free zone.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

Let me share a my greatest moment yet. I was with a lady who I am going to refer to as Ms.Jones, who is 85 years old. We put the headset on the resident. We started "Google Earth" And we typed in the correct address the family had provided. Ms.Jones has Alzheimer’s & doesn’t speak very coherently these days. In seconds Ms.Jones was in the front yard of her home from 70 years ago. It took her almost no time at all to recognize her home. Spinning around & being able to see the same home she saw every day outside her home for years growing up. Ms.Jones said "see, I told you we’d be home before dark"." She was talking almost as clear as day. Like she was talking to her sibling.Mrs.Jones has been talking about stories from her childhood home ever since.This elicited tears from everyone around & a few that have heard the story.Lives Revived & Memories Survived
For the 1st decade of this charity existence was myself going into each & every event. Covid has influenced our programming in senior living homes.
we plan on gifting virtual reality to each senior living home, one at a time. This will create the opportunity for a computer & game to be utilized 24/7 instead of just during my weekly or monthly visits. Creating gathering places for the volunteers to focus.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
