January 2014

Today the decision was made to voluntarily dissolve the 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation, Sensory Friendly Learning Inc. The notice of dissolution was submitted today to the local paper, to be published for two consecutive weeks. The IRS and the Georgia Secretary of State have been called and customer service people from both organizations have advised the proper steps to close this legal structure. This process should be competed by February, 2014.  Our Articles of Incorporation state that other educational non-profits with a similiar purpose as ours will receive the money in our non-profit’s bank account.

As Founder of this non-profit, I can see the benefit to the children for me and my Board, consisting of educators and college interns, to spend more time tutoring children than tending the legalities of operating the non-profit corporation.

One chapter has closed, but the Book goes on. I’m proud to continue supporting children who learn differently.

Jeannie Bolstridge joins the forum of Halo-Soma, home of this dedicated mother’s rapid prompting methold (RPM).

Brittany Ammons added many apps to her Apps on Sale blog.

Brittany Ammons created the following posts on her  Autism 4 Life blog: Autistic Brothers in New York City Marathon, Cheaper is Better, and Belk Charity Sale.

Brittany Ammons sent out an e-mail to inform nonprofit members about the Belk Charity Sale.

Jeannie Bolstridge created the post “Teaching Plans Unite with Technology” on her Social Prompter blog.

On November 9, Jeannie Bolstridge and Brittany Ammons sold tickets for the Belk Charity Sale from 6 A.M. to 10 A.M. to raise money for the nonprofit.

Brittany Ammons contacted the Grand Theatre and asked if nonprofit members could watch the movie “Frozen” privately. A newsletter was again sent out to all Douglas and Fitzgerald nonprofit supporters, but there was no response from anyone in Douglas.

Vicki Nagengast, the original founder of the Douglas group FATE with whom SFL merged, called Jeannie to talk about the concerns Douglas parents had with the August 2012 merger written by our lawyer. Vicki suggested that it may please everyone in Douglas if we dissolved the merger and left the FATE parent group free to operate in the casual manner that they have since 2007. She suggested that these folks were not comfortable with the state structure or IRS designation under which our nonprofit needed to operate.

Belk Charity Sale

On Saturday, November 9, 2013, I will be representing Sensory Friendly Learning Inc. at the Belk Charity Sale in Tifton, Georgia from 6 A.M. to 10 A.M. At this sale, Belk will have a lot of items anywhere from 20% to 70% off. Customers must buy a ticket in order to get into the store and Belk is allowing local non-profit organizations to sell the tickets, so i have been selling tickets for Sensory Friendly Learning.

Tickets to the sale are $5 per ticket and each ticket allows one person to enter the store. You will get your $5 back, since $5 will be taken off your first purchase. The first 100 customers into the store will get a free gift card that can range from $5 to $1,000. You can buy tickets from organizations or the Belk store before and during the sale.

As I mentioned before, I wil be at the Belk in Tifton (located in the mall). However, this sale is not just in this Belk’s store. Click the following links to find a Belk store near you that is having the sale. You can find a store based off your zip code or by state.

If you are going to the store in Tifton, I hope to see you tomorrow!

Brittany Ammons added a total of 48 apps to her Apps on Sale blog.

Jeannie Bolstridge created the posts “Sensory Friendly Tutoring Stations” and Google’s “Good to Know” Great Read for Teachers and Parents. She continued to e-mail members of the Georgia Tech. team to ask about rebuilding the Social Prompter app.

Brittany Ammons posted information about the apps Bugs and Buttons on her Apps 4 Education blog.

Brittany Ammons had a table outside of the Belk store in Tifton, Georgia to sell tickets for the Belk Charity Sale from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Oct. 25 and from 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM on Oct. 28.

Jeannie and Steven Bolstridge joined a new large church with churches in both towns where our nonprofit serves. We are hoping that there are parents and teachers who would welcome our volunteer work in those places and that the mission of the Good News of the church can also be strengthened.

About Sensory Friendly Learning Inc.

In 2009 as a retired educator, Jeannie Bolstridge founded an educational, IRS registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit named Sensory Friendly Learning Inc. She created this organization with the hope of providing free, after-school tutoring to children who needed it the most. She had experience with tutoring special needs children from when she would take her registered therapy dog to the elementary school. This dog was even written into one autistic child’s IEP.
