More police cameras may soon be installed in Chicago’s 43srd Ward, like Ald. Michele Smith is spearheading a fundraising campaign for more devices in her neighborhood, including parts of Lincoln Park, Gold Coast and the Old Town.

“I think there is never too much supervision to be done,” said Eric Phillips. “I think ‘Big Brother’ is still watching to some extent, but if we’re able to implement changes based on catching things in the act, I think it’s a great opportunity for us. . “

Phillips is the owner of Dilly Lily in Lincoln Park. He feels safe in his neighborhood, but said there have been problems with crime, including vandalism, in recent months.

“I think more than anything is being able to use surveillance to catch crime,” he said. “It’s not worth it if not in use. “

To combat this problem, Smith sent an email to residents last week announcing the “OEM Camera Program”. She said residents have expressed interest in donating to help pay for more police cameras, and the new program will allow them to do so.

The facilities would cost around $ 25,000 and the location must be approved by police, officials said.

“I’m all for more cameras and what Alderman Smith would like to do and hope that will continue to spread throughout the city,” said Jeff Lawler, owner of Geja’s Café. “I understand that there are a lot of communities across Chicago that can’t afford it. I don’t know what can be done on a larger scale, but we have to try to do things.

Other residents don’t think police cameras should be paid for by donations.

“I think the city should pay so that it doesn’t go to individual taxpayers for donations,” said one resident. “Because it should be a city service to keep us safe and have police forces to protect us from all the madness that’s going on in the city. ”

BERLIN, Oct. 19 (Reuters) – Germany could miss its target to donate 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine this year due to conditions imposed by manufacturers and insufficient deliveries, a ministry official said. Health in a letter to Brussels seen by Reuters.

The 100 million doses are half of the total promised by European Union member states to the poorest countries this year, according to the European Commission.

But on October 19, the Foreign Ministry said Germany had given just over 17% of that amount.

In a letter to the European Commission’s Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Authority (HERA) on Monday, Minister of Health Secretary of State Thomas Steffen said there were “bureaucratic issues. , logistics and legal proceedings ”imposed by vaccine manufacturers on EU countries wishing to donate surplus vaccines.

They make “a rapid response to international requests for assistance almost impossible,” added Steffen.

The letter is the strongest sign to date of tensions between governments and drugmakers over donations. The EU and rich countries whose most vulnerable citizens have already been vaccinated largely are under heavy pressure from the World Health Organization to help deliver more doses to the poorest countries, many of them vaccinated only a fraction of their population.

“With the current increase in vaccine surpluses in many Member States, we will soon be faced with a global allocation emergency,” Steffen wrote. “Some countries may be forced to waste large quantities of precious vaccines that are urgently needed in other parts of the world.”

Obstacles include minimum selling prices, onerous compensation payments demanded from recipient countries and restrictions on distribution to international organizations, he said.

Changes in expected delivery volumes and vaccine dose expiration dates also make planning more difficult, he added.

Steffen said AstraZeneca (AZN.L) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ.N) together could only deliver up to 50 million doses of their COVID-19 vaccines this year, which means Germany is also expected to deliver up to 50 million doses of their COVID-19 vaccines this year. donate Pfizer / BioNTech (22UAy.DE), (PFE.N) and Moderna (MRNA.O) which are the pillars of its vaccination campaign.

In response, Johnson & Johnson said it would help countries with excess doses donate them to other countries, especially using the international COVAX facility, as long as countries meet safety, legal, regulatory and logistics.

The other manufacturers could not be immediately reached for comment.

Most EU countries have pledged to donate AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Many have restricted the use of these vaccines due to very rare cases of blood clotting.

Any shortfall in donations is likely to exacerbate criticism from richer countries, which are deploying boosters and inoculating adolescents considered to be at low risk of COVID-19, as the pandemic rages elsewhere. Read more

SINGAPORE – Despite the massive economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic that left many charities in shock, tax-deductible donations only declined slightly last year (2020).

Charities that are public institutions (CPIs) received $ 1.01 billion in tax-deductible donations last year, down 0.2% from the $ 1.02 billion in 2019 .

Individuals gave more money than businesses last year, turning the tide in 2019 when businesses gave more than ordinary people.

The data is contained in the Commissioner’s Charities Commissioner’s Annual Report 2020, which was released on October 12. Mr. Desmond Chin is the Commissioner of Charities.

Last year, individuals made $ 515.2 million in tax-deductible donations, while businesses donated $ 497.6 million.

Social sector and welfare CPIs accounted for the lion’s share, 45 percent, of total tax-deductible donations last year. Next come the PICs in the health and education sectors respectively.

There were 646 CPIs in December of last year. CPIs are charitable organizations that can receive tax-deductible donations, which means donors can claim tax relief for monies donated.

IPCs include well-known charities like the National Kidney Foundation and the Singapore Children’s Society. The National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University, both of which collect tens of millions of dollars a year in tax-deductible donations, are also CPIs.

The pandemic hit charities last year as many fundraisers have to be canceled or moved online given restrictions on large in-person events, the Straits Times reported.

Many corporate donors have also cut back on their donations, the charities surveyed said.

At the end of last year, there were 2,321 registered charities, including 55 charities registered last year.

Almost half of these charities are religious groups, such as churches and temples. The rest include organizations providing health and social services, and those in education, the arts and sports, among others.

Before the pandemic hit, charities (which included both IPCs and non-IPCs) received $ 3.2 billion in total donations in 2019. This was 13% more than the $ 2.9 billion. in 2018.

A key sector of non-IPC charities includes church groups, which raised around 40% of the $ 3.2 billion in total donations in 2019.

Total donations, which includes both tax-deductible and non-tax-deductible donations, for 2019 is the latest figure available.

According to the annual report, CPIs should be “dedicated to serving the needs of the Singapore community as a whole and not limited to particular interests or groups of people based on race, creed or religion.”

Tax-deductible donations are submitted by CPI for calendar year 2020, which is a different reporting period for total donations.

For total donations, they are compiled based on annual returns submitted by charities for the fiscal year ended 2019.

Charity Council Chairman Gerard Ee said that with many businesses impacted by the pandemic, it’s no surprise that the amounts companies donated to charities last year have declined.

However, he noted that tax-deductible amounts donated by individuals exceeded those donated by companies last year.

He said, “Singaporeans remain generous in heart and I am not surprised that more people have contributed to charity, taking advantage of the tax deduction.”

He also noted that online donation websites like Giving.sg, which is run by the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Center (NVPC), saw larger donations last year, even with the pandemic. Hundreds of charities use Giving.sg to raise funds.

Giving.sg received a record sum of over $ 93.4 million in donations last year, more than double the amount it raised in 2019.

NVPC deputy managing director Tony Soh said last year’s donations were primarily intended for causes related to the pandemic, such as helping migrant workers, healthcare workers and ensuring the food and digital safety during the circuit breaker.

He said: “Giving has always been part of Singapore’s DNA, but Singaporeans have shown their true courage during the pandemic – as innovative, caring and courageous people who have stepped forward to uplift others in a time of crisis. intense need. “

JACKSONVILLE, NC (WNCT) – The wife and children of a local active-duty sailor are homeless after a fire at their Midway Park home earlier this week.

Owner and mother Jessica Garry was able to get herself and her three children out safely, but suffered injuries when she returned to save her dogs.

“The fact that my kids acted so quickly, like my daughter was legally blind, and when I said ‘Fire, through the door’, she was able to grab her little sister and walk out that door as fast as she did. could, ”Garry said.

Garry said she has always been very careful about fire safety in her home, and she believes that is why her family is alive today.

“You have to have access to the windows, no clutter… tell your children, when I tell you it’s serious, you have to move, you don’t question the situation…. and my kids were just as brave as I was, ”she said.

The Piney Green Volunteer Fire Department responded to the blaze at approximately 11 p.m. Fire chief Tim Bruns said the blaze was caused by an electrical malfunction.

“As for the fire that was averted, it was an equipment failure so I’m not sure how much that could have been avoided or not, there are still unknowns out there.” , Bruns said.

Garry said her husband, who trains in California, was devastated to hear the news. He will be allowed to return home after the fire.

“Just because he wasn’t there to save us, he gives me all the motivation to do it, I’m even stronger when he’s not there because I know I have to be”, said Garry said.

When asked what types of things the family needs right now, Garry said everything you use on a daily basis. She says simple household items would be a big help.

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the staff at Paducah Beer Werks seek to make a difference by raising the necessary resources and donations for Merryman House of Paducah.

The local brewery will be collecting donations until the end of the month and any customer who makes a donation will receive half of an aperitif as a thank you.

“Domestic violence is something that affects so many people in our community. The Merryman House is a bridge for women and men to get the help they desperately need in those precious times they might not get elsewhere, ”PBW Managing Director Foster Stacy told the Sun. “As a business, we just want to use our platform to help in any way we can, and that’s what they need right now.

“We have already received so many donations, but it is not even enough. If we can come together as a community to help them and others in times of crisis, we should. “

Specific items that the domestic violence center needs for all genders include deodorant, razors, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotions, pillow cases, headphones, earplugs, ear, sleep masks, white washcloths and towels, and 4-2T diapers.

Dancing for Donations is hosting its first fall festival in Riverview on Saturday, October 23 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to raise funds for a new studio.

If your family is looking for a fun way to celebrate fall this month, mark your calendars for Saturday, October 23, as Dancing for Donations is hosting its first fall festival in Riverview from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to raise money for a new studio.

The event, which will take place at the Riverbend Retreat in Riverview, is open to the general public and, like the classes offered by Dancing for Donations, is friendly for children with special needs.

“We will have all kinds of fun activities for the whole family,” said Sara Battaglia, director of Dancing for Donations, who explained that in the past the organization had organized a chest or treat in the fall.

The event will feature face painting, games, bounce houses, life size chess, food (including s’mores), a spooky trail, costume contest, cake walk, raffle and a silent auction, mini golf, photo props, vendors and more.

There is no cost to enter the festival, but according to Battaglia there will be fees for some activities and food.

“The event will suit all ages,” Battaglia said. “The first couple of hours the spooky trail will be friendly for most ages and the last hour will be a bit more spooky for older kids.”

The aim of the event is to raise funds for the non-profit organization to open a larger studio early next year.

The mission of Dancing for Donations, a 501 (c) (3), is to make dance and the arts available to the community.

“We welcome children with special needs and do not separate them from their peers,” Battaglia explained. “We also have a free program for foster children. We often host events like this in the community to raise money and give back. “

Students will also have the opportunity to perform at the event.
