We’re not asking you to donate!
This Giving Tuesday, We’re Giving Thanks.
All year you have shown up for us, and we are immensely grateful! From the 2019 Year-End ask, the Swiftsure Derby, and the Cowboy Ball, you’ve supported us and ponied-up in support of our mission to empower individuals of all abilities to find strength and freedom through equine connections.
That’s why this Giving Tuesday, we’re not asking for your donation. We’re asking you to go out and make a positive impact in the community.
We are grateful to be a part of such a caring and giving community that we have no doubt you’ll make a positive impression on someone’s day. Be generous this #givingtuesday in your own way to someone or something you love within our community. Share it with us if you’d like. We’ll be right there with you.
