I want people to understand how air quality affects the overall well being of people. Three of my siblings that all grew up in the same neighborhood got asthma and I believe that there is a correlation between air quality and rates of respiratory diseases/ infections.

For the remaining time in May and all of June 2019, we will collect clothing in bins.

I'm going to make pillows and with iron-on-paper I will iron and embroider the global goals. People can then custom order a pillow. The money they pay will go to local charities connected to global goals.

The Day of Human-Animal Interactions (#DHAI) event is organized outdoor in the Campus of Veterinary Medicine School in Cluj-Napoca and it aims to promote the idea of humane education in Romania, by bringing together more than 150 undergraduate and master students in Psychology, Biology and Veterinary Medicine, alongside with experts in the area of human-animal interactions (including animal-assisted therapy), representatives of local NGOs in the fields of animal rescue and inclusive services for persons with special needs, as well as members of the local community, i.e. children with their pets (and family members). Based on the huge participation rate to the indoor version of the event (28th of February 2019), we expect more than 2000 attendees to #DHAI event on the 1st of June, as well as a very high visibility in the local and national media. The main objective of the #DHAI event is to promote the responsible ownership and to facilitate the development of favorable attitudes toward animals and nature, by involving the community members in a series of activities, such as: free counseling on the management of human-animal interactions, dog-dancing, free therapeutic interactions with dogs and horses, free riding lessons for children, educational workshops on adoption and rehabilitation of animals, sensorial exercises with animals, meaningful and thematic face-painting, guided interactions with seeing-eye dogs, agility exercises with dogs, free guided visits of the Parasitology Department, Aquarium and Emergency Veterinary Clinique, and workshops on the needs of companion animals (including exotic pets). The entrance to the event is free. The event is organized on volunteering bases, with no particular funds to support it.

Our project will create a culturally-relevant community garden and composting system that will enable our Halal food pantry to be sustainable while providing services to our seniors, preschoolers, and other community members. We have already begun cleaning out the concrete lot behind our building, which has been used as a dumping ground for trash. By the end of May, we hope to begin construction on our composting area and lifted beds, using grant funding from programs like Roots and Shoots, the Citizens Committee of New York, and Fiskars Green Thumb Project. At this point, we will also begin providing classes to our seniors and preschoolers, starting with seed germination and basic composting practices. We also look to compost at least 1,000 pounds of food waste by the middle of June, which would be ready to integrate By the end of the summer, we aim to have the composting system fully-functional and the garden producing Zone 7 Hardiness fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs that are free to take home by any program participants or volunteers. For this project, outreach will be done by communicating with the parents of our preschoolers' parents, the seniors, and other members of the agency and community. We will use flyers, Facebook, Instagram, and email. Classes will be held at least once a week.
