It’s Giving Tuesday. Our heart went out for the horses mentioned in this tweet by Neigh Savers.
Neigh Savers is a non-profit organization that rehabs, retrains and rehomes off the track thoroughbreds.
War horses recently saved by Neigh Savers send you their thanks for your past support! All were racing at 10 years or close to: Tupelo Cush, 86 starts, So Elite, 58 starts, Nagy’s Piggy Bank, 47 starts, Gabe’s Pride, 77 starts, Luckarack, 75 starts and Toccet’s Charm, 113 starts.
In other news, we are relocating our website to WordPress, the home of The Horse Fund’s blog, Tuesday’s Horse. WordPress delivers excellence in every area and we are thrilled we are finally tackling such a big move. It is taking a lot of man hours. We should be done by the end of December. Hooray!
If you wish to donate to us this Giving Tuesday, hop over to our new site’s donation page. Take a look around while you are there if you have time to. We are about 3/4’s of the way through. It’s going to be gorgeous!
Why all the changes? You know Mrs. Farrell by now. That woman never stands still. She is always recalibrating everything with a view to doing things bigger, smarter, better and faster for the horses we love and for whom we want to do everything we possibly can. Speaking of which, we are putting some exciting campaigns together for 2020 that we hope you will feel extra motivated to help with.
Thank you for being with us for another year and supporting our work.
We sent a shout out via email about our Fall Matching Gift fundraising campaign.
In our shout out we wrote:
We will be 15 years old on October 23. We love your acknowledging this with your $23.00 donations. They have all been doubled to $64.00. Hooray!
Ummm, $23.00 x 2 = $46.00 not $64.00. Our generous benefactor, being the kind gentleman that he is, decided that he would honor our inadvertent slip up and all $23.00 donations in response to that email became an instant $64.00 donation. How about that?
Well, the generosity continues.
Our supporter is now guaranteeing the following offer:
In honor of your 15 year anniversary on October 23rd — I will double all $23.00 donations to $46.00 and $15.00 donations to $30.00 — for the next 24 hours starting the moment you hit the “send” button to make sure you reach your goal.
When you get a chance, take a look here at all the darling ways to use paper straws and repurpose plastic ones. You will be charmed at the super cute ideas people have come up with for kids parties and more.
