As our donation total hit $400, and because we really wanted to get the ball rolling, we went ahead and purchased the laptop. Tick this one off the list! Yay! Thank you everyone.
With this, the external hard drive & WIFI box in hand BARC Staff are beginning the process of setting things up.
Then we received a message from Sandra Kane (Melbourne, Australia) to advise that she had an old laptop she would like to donate. We are currently working out delivery to Ubud with the support of some kind folks who are coming to Bali. This second laptop is so much more than we could have hoped for! Thank you everyone.
Now, we just need some additional funds for purchase of software and a printer then we will truly be up and running!
WILL YOU HELP BRING BARC INTO THE 21st CENTURY?
BARC’s office equipment has been in need of an upgrade for quite some time, but when it comes to a choice between that or the dogs, we have chosen the dogs! Every cent and rupiah donated by you has gone into medicine, food, physical care & rehoming of the beautiful dogs we are so committed to.
A recent electrical fire in the office equipment at the BARC Clinic highlighted that this upgrade has now become essential! We are hugely grateful that no dogs or humans were harmed in this incident!
However, it is clearly time to ask our lovely donors (You!) for some support…
We are well overdue for a technical update! And our desire, in moving forward, is to ensure that BARC offers accountability in all of our actions. To facilitate this we need an efficient management and record keeping system in place. The technology we are raising funds for will enable us to:
1. Provide transparency and easy information sharing with donors and volunteers through monthly progress reports and activity statistics
2. Efficiently record and share online
- individual dog information
- adoption & foster records
- individual dog medical treatments &
- donation information
3. Record and track all
- financial information
- product orders
What we intend to purchase is:
1 laptop computer $385 USD (purchased)
1 printer $44 USD
1 copy of QuickBooks accounting & til operating system $377.50 USD
1 copy of Microsoft Office Home & Business 2016 $209.30 USD
1 external hard drive – donated by Kate
1 portable WIFI unit – donated by Kate
Total Target Amount: $1,015.80 USD
Thank you for caring for Bali dogs and helping us to help them!
Important Information: please know that should this fundraiser go over 100%, all additional funds will be directed back into care of the dogs.
Or if you have a business and would like to donate one or more of these items please contact us via email: email@example.com
