What are High Impact Donors?

Sure, dollars matter. Yet at the end of the day, it`s your impact that counts. Want to make an impact ? We're here to help.

That`s why we provide free tools like direct email and Peer2Peer pages as well as Paid Project Pages and Corporate Sponsorship to help donors spread the word about their favorite projects and charities.

1. Donate what ever amount you want to your favorite projects.

2. Spread the word. Use your free or sponsored impact tools to share the project link or personalize it to share with friends, family and business contacts.

The first dots are your contacts who donate, the second dots are their contacts and so on... for the life of the project!

3. Watch your impact spread across the map dot by dot...

Project Description

Every issue of bUneke Magazine has 60+ pages of interviews, articles, and personal viewpoints from volunteer writers across the world. Here's an example of the kinds of articles you can find in bUneke Magazine:

Learn About Florida's Roles From the Ice Age to the Space Age

If you're planning a visit to Orlando, Florida, remember this area has much to offer your family, in addition to theme parks, including some outstanding adventures into history and science that won't cost more than the short drive to Brevard Museum of History and Natural Science. This is the only location, other than the Department of Anthropology at Florida State University, that has original artifacts from the Windover Archeological site. Here, you can glimpse a community of hunter/gatherers that predates the use of pottery and later, the evolution of farming.

While the Windover exhibit might be considered the crowning jewel at this museum, more treasures await. Vignettes that represent other area museums could be called teasers, as they whet the appetite to learn more about Brevard County's history. Whether taking a docent- or self-guided tour, visitors are transported from Florida's Ice Age, through the Space Age, and into our vast universe, which we're just beginning to learn about.

Until recently, this museum fell under the purview of the Florida Historical Society. Now, the museum, and its 22 acres, which include hiking trails through three distinctive environments, is being operated by the City of Cocoa. Dedicated volunteers continue to work at the museum and maintain the trails. 

Bob Mink, who has been a docent since 2016, said, "There's such a rich history in this place. It's my honor to show it to as many people as I can."

Gregg Stoll has been volunteering since early 2021 and does a variety of tasks at the museum. 

He said, "As we’re in the process of securing a lease agreement with the City of Cocoa, right now, we can't take donations or charge admission. We don't have a computer and can't effectively communicate with our volunteer base, but those of us who are here feel committed to not only keeping the museum open, we want to revive it and make it a real asset to our community."

Brevard Museum of History and Natural Science exhibits include a replica of the largest mastodon in North America and other Florida Ice Age mammals, like the Giant Ground Sloth. Visitors walk through time as they learn about Paleolithic humans, Florida settlers, Cracker cowboys, and monumental strides Brevard residents made in the Civil Rights movement. They journey with courageous pioneering astronauts from Earth to the moon and beyond our galaxy through otherworldly photos taken by the Hubble telescope. 

"We're hoping to add to the Aerospace section," Bob said. "We've got a lead on some interesting things that people want to donate to the museum.”

Gregg said, "As soon as we can come to an agreement with the city, we plan to do more with the museum."

This museum can enhance any homeschool curriculum and provide outdoor opportunities for learning, in addition to the historical displays inside.

Project Needs

bUneke Magazine's primary need is someone who will cover our quarterly printing and mailing costs for 100+ copies. We often need to wait for smaller donations to cover our printing costs. Our goal is to send each of our local, regional, national, and international volunteer writers a free copy each quarter and have copies left over to distribute to local schools, hospitals, lobbies, waiting rooms, banks, real estate offices, and send to subscribers.

If we can pay for the bulk mailing fee and indicia, we can save substantially on domestic mail rates. The more magazines we can afford to print, the cheaper the per copy costs will be.

With a print sponsor, we can accomplish this on a larger scale when the individual prices decrease.

We would love to be able to pay our writers and editors, too!

You agree that at the total discretion of the charity if a project has filled its need for a “Line item”, your funds may be applied to additional project needs.

Project Schedule

The digital magazine is released on the first of the months of March, June, September, and December. Writers submit their works by the first of the month, two months prior to release. They are then edited and returned to the writers who record themselves reading the articles for our audio version. Once we receive enough donations to cover the cost of printing and mailing, the magazines are printed and either mailed or distributed to interested parties, worldwide.

Between issues, volunteers attend local events to promote the organization and magazine. This is also where some of our best local stories are found.

Project Beneficiaries

School children, teachers, philanthropists, people who want to make a difference to create a peaceful world, and the writers themselves, benefit from bUneke Magazine. Businesses and entrepreneurs who align with our mission of working today to change tomorrow also benefit.
