Here’s a quick look at business news in our area:
– An Atlanta-based entrepreneur is matching all holiday donations to LifeLine Animal Project’s “Perfect Match” campaign through the end of the year, according to a LifeLine press release.
Anisa Telwar Kaicker, the founder of beauty company Anisa International, is offering the donation matching for the eighth consecutive year. Kaicker will match every dollar donated – up to $50,000 – through Dec. 31, 2019.
According to LifeLine, the campaign will feature some very special stories of adoption matches made possible by these generous donations.
“We are so grateful for the continued support of Anisa and her team at Anisa International,” Rebecca Guinn, LifeLine’s CEO, said. “Their generous grants have helped us take huge strides in making Atlanta a lifesaving city for shelter animals.”
Kaicka has long been a partner of LifeLine. In fact, LifeLine, which works to end the euthanasia of healthy animals in county shelters, recently opened a new animal shelter in Kaicka’s name.
“The season of giving is my favorite time of the year because it’s a time for communities to open their hearts and to help those in need,” Kaicker said. “Lifeline Animal Project is such a deserving organization, and Anisa International is proud to continue our support of their mission to provide lifesaving solutions to Atlanta’s animals.”
“Ms. Bancroft is now eligible for the annual $25,000 Amber Grant based on a public vote along with the 11 other monthly grant winners,” the press release says. “Winning the annual grant would fund a first of it’s kind project Ms. Bancroft has in the works. Elexa plans to commission a female composer to write a short musical about a fun historical event from the city of Atlanta. The show would premier at an iconic theater in the city to highlight Atlanta’s talented students and teachers.”
