Volunteer groups and individual volunteers are needed at Project C.U.R.E to help prepare the large amounts of donated supplies received for shipment overseas. Everyone from teenagers to senior adults can help sort and pack life saving medical supplies. Volunteers can come in on a regular basis or for a short duration.
Sorting Team Leaders conduct orientation and training of new volunteer sorting groups. They lead volunteer teams in an effective, energetic and engaging sorting experience and cultivate relationships with new volunteers and ensure that all volunteers leave a sorting event with a clear understanding of who Project CURE is and how they can get more involved. A team leader should be self-motivated, trustworthy and able to communicate effectively to a group of 20 volunteers. As the “face” of Project CURE a Team Leader should be friendly, reliable and maintain a positive attitude at all times.
PROJECT C.U.R.E. (Commission on Urgent Relief & Equipment) was founded in 1987 to help meet the need for medical supplies, equipment and services around the world. PROJECT C.U.R.E. builds sustainable healthcare infrastructure by providing the medical supplies and equipment that medical personnel need to deliver healthcare to their communities. Since its inception, PROJECT C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief to needy people in more than 120 countries.

Charlie and I are undergraduate students in engineering and began work on ZooPoo when we realized the pressing need for a change to be made in local zoos. Our solution to the problem zoos face with the disposal costs of animal waste utilizes algae cultures as a method of recovering nutrients from the waste to produce a nutritionally effective supplement for animals to consume.
Our experience at Ignite was unlike any other. Ignite @ ASU served as a one stop shop where people with inspiring ideas could gather and share their thoughts. While presenting at Ignite, the two of us equally enjoyed the quick progression of slides. It allowed for a seamless transition between ideas and made for a one of a kind experience as a presenter. This feature complimented well with our presentation due to the different dimensions of ZooPoo. ZooPoo will provide an economical boost in public zoos, improve the nutritional quality of existent animal feed, and do so in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way.
“To think that one child would go to bed hungry somewhere in this country is heartbreaking…to know how many do is virtually incomprehensible. This is not only a problem that exists in the far reaches of the globe. It happens right here in our own backyard. Together, as concerned citizens, we must do more to make sure every child’s needs are met.” Katie Couric
Yes, it really is in our backyard, 1 in 4 children in Arizona are living in poverty and at risk of hunger. Would you be willing to help make a difference with this issue? St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance-Kids Cafe Program is looking for committed volunteers—at least a day per week for a 2 -3 hour morning shift to help create and provide as many as 3,000 “Snack and/or Breakfast Meals” to 66 sites in the Valley every day. Volunteers will help scoop, bag, close, and pack food and other items used for this Program and put them all together in Snack Meal bags. Work is conducted in an air-conditioned, food safe clean room using safe food-handling practices. A safe food handlers certificate, however, is not a necessity. Accommodations are possible for those needing a sit down position.
Hello it’s Kayla Burkholder here to give you a brief introduction to digital memories and the importance of them. I am a Graphic Information Technology student and an avid believer that history helps direct the future. I hope that this will get the ball rolling with more forward momentum on how we can preserve our history now for the future.
My experience with ignite was a great way for me to get people more engaged and aware of the real dangers of having only digital memories. So I keep saying digital memories, what exactly are they? Well they are digital photos, videos, email, PDFs, letters or anything that is important to you and is now in some digital form. Digital memories are culturally relevant to everyone who is now using computers, smart phones, and digital cameras.
So what can you do to adapt to digital memories? Well get into a discussion and start realizing it as an actual problem that effects current and future generations! Visit my solution and the 10,000 Solutions website to be inspired and start your own solutions. Make sure to tag your solutions with #ignite and also #digitalmemories if it’s a solution related to my presentation.
