Theanna Zika’s Charities

Passion for Charitable Giving An active member of the home health care industry, I am passionate about helping others. To this end, I contribute to and support a variety of charities even beyond my professional endeavors. You can find information on some of my favorite organizations below. The Mission Continues (www.missioncontinues.org) – The Mission Continues is an organization dedicated to assisting and empowering disabled and wounded veterans. Among the organization’s programs are the Fellowship Program, which places veterans into volunteer positions within their community; Veterans Tributes, which encourages citizens to complete service projects on behalf of a fallen service member; and Warriors in Service, which assists active, wounded service members in organizing and leading service projects. Sierra Club (www.sierraclub.org) – In operation since 1892, the Sierra Club is an environmental organization that advocates for the protection of national parks and other wild places. Founded by John Muir, the Sierra Club offers educational resources and programs designed to combat global warming and safeguard various environmental habitats. Paralyzed Veterans of America (www.pva.org) – Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) spearheads initiatives to secure quality healthcare, research and education, benefits, and various opportunities to service people suffering from spinal cord injuries or spinal cord diseases. Environmental Defense Fund (www.edf.org) – Founded over 40 years ago, the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) has played an instrumental role in instituting change at the base legal level. Among EDF’s history-making victories are winning a ban on DDT (a harmful pesticide that harms wildlife), helping hunted whales earn a spot on the United States’ Endangered Species List, launching the Safe Harbor program, and helping pass a law meant to cap and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
