 About Us:

Sedona Wish List connects Sedonans to their service organizations so they can fulfill "Wishes" for goods, services, funding and volunteers requested by its member organizations. Just visit the Sedona Wish List webpage to follow up by clicking on "Wishes" or "Wish List Organizations" for details and contact information for its 90 plus members.

Wishes Fulfilled:

■ Yavapai Food Council wants to thank its two volunteer drivers who are delivering food from Cottonwood to Sedona! Believe it or not they are part of a supply chain which will eventually distribute nearly 20,000 meals in our community! Thanks go to Sedona Wish List for sending help to the weakest link and continuing to train eyes on its ongoing wishes below.
Volunteers and Participants:

■ Sedona Art Museum, Sedona Arts Center and Sedona Heritage Museum are planning a week of fun, educational events between Monday, March 9, and Sunday, March 15, and are calling on all arts enthusiasts to get involved with helping out! If you think the Red Rocks are surreal now, see what this collaborative event has in store from Sedona’s internationally acclaimed Dada/Surrealist artists from the mid 1900’s, Max Ernst and Dorothea Tanning. All kinds of help is needed to put together the art displays, workshops, poetry readings, dance and a new play to celebrate these remarkable artists and their creativity! Right now Sedona Art Museum’s Sharron Porter is signing up volunteers to help as a guide, to do set-up, to help direct parking, and to clean up, but many hands are needed for various tasks for this exciting event. Click on Sedona Art Museum on the Sedona Wish List or the Sedona Art Museum’s Wish on the Wishes tab there for details.

■ Gardens for Humanity needs its original by-laws copied into a digital format in Microsoft Word so they can be edited and updated. They were typed on a typewriter in 1996 and were scanned and kept in only a pdf format so they can’t be easily edited now (unless you have a computer which can convert them into Word or can retype them over in Word). This would be a one-time service for a volunteer with a computer and a chance to learn more about one organization making a difference in today’s world.

■ Yavapai Food Council is seeking a few more volunteers in Cottonwood and Sedona who can lift at least 33lbs repeatedly for VERY short periods of time! Volunteers are needed in Cottonwood on Friday, February 27, from only 9:00am to 9:20am and in Sedona on Friday, February 27, from only 9:40 to10:00 am at its office. You can click on the listing for Yavapai Food Council on the homepage of Sedona Wish List or the Wishes tab at the top of the homepage for address and contact information. Who would have thought that twenty minutes could make such a difference to the 20,000 families who will benefit!

■ Connections Equine Therapy needs someone to help in its office with clerical duties, such as answering the phone, filing, sending emails, etc. If you have these skills and want to be part of its great nonprofit team, please find them on the Sedona Wish List homepage to follow up.

Sedona Heritage Museum needs someone to volunteer to transcribe about 40 oral histories by May 31, 2015! If you are good at listening and would like to help capture those memories of the past for future generations, ask for Lisa at 282-7038 since there are a lot of different volunteers working on different things.

Goods & Services:

■ Crossing Worlds Hopi Projects needs shovels and hoes for a youth farming group. These simple tools, which often sit unused in a dark garage corner, can be immediately put to good use right now! And yes, it is still on the lookout for any kind of a tractor for an especially industrious Hopi farmer. Crossing Worlds is found on the Sedona Wish List homepage for contact details.

Funding:

■ Connections Equine Therapy needs help to pay for hay for its herd. The price of hay continues to go up and its horses are hungry every day, whether they have a work session or not. Readers are asked to please drop something in Alice's bucket to keep the horses happy. Contact details for Connections are on Sedona Wish List.

 Astara Fisher, New Sedona Wish List Director

             I am very pleased to welcome and entrust responsibility for Sedona Wish List to Astara Fisher, our Assistant Director, who has been  gathering news from our members and "learning the ropes" of running Sedona Wish List.  As Founder, I have tried to engender "Acts of Kindness". They were my pleasures – and the basis for Sedona Wish List.  These are also at the heart of Astara's personal mission as she has dealt with fundraising, motivation building for non-profits and even starting a non-profit of her own. Sedona Wish List has always had the mission of  providing for Sedona's service organizations.  Astara's encouragement of  member organizations to return the favor with "Offers" of services, resources and personnel to other members and to the community in general will add another dimension to Sedona Wish List.

            Many thanks to the Sedona community and The Red Rock News for having faith in Sedona Wish List over the past three and a half years.  May you all be rewarded and enjoy the next chapter with Astara.

             Best "Wishes" to all, as I head back to my sculpture studio.

            Barbara Vickers, Founder 

            Sedona Wish List
