Big Day of Giving Starts a Midnight!
The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:
Starting at Midnight!
24 Hours to Give Where your Heart Is!
Starting midnight tonight, we are asking you to participate in another huge and historic event for our region, Big Day of Giving. This event starts at midnight and you have 24 hours to join us. Once this starts, All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. (AAE) will join with over 600 other nonprofits working to make our region #1 as the most generous community in the country on this day of giving!
As many of you know, AAE strives to support and further our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming abused, neglected and/or abandoned horses and other animals, as well as those in the auction/slaughter pipeline.
This year, our goal is to engage at least 200 donors and raise $15,000 to help us FILL THE BARN to support our annual feed and care costs!
Your donation of any amount will help feed a horse or offset the cost of
veterinary care, farrier care or dental care.
$25 helps to provide feed (hay) to an average horse for about two weeks,
$50 helps provide feed (hay) for an average horse for about a month, and
$100 helps provides feed (hay) and basic care (farrier/dental care, deworming, vaccines)
to an average horse for about a month!
Help Us Make a Difference!
How Can You Help?
You can donate to AAE STARTING MIGNIGHT! Donations as little as $15 make a big difference, and your gifts can help us win some of the $100,000 in prizes that are up for grabs!
Why Wait?! Scheduled gifts will be processed tomorrow and
will guarantee you help up meet our goal! So Easy!
Let your networks know that you support our cause by sharing our posts on your social media accounts, or by creating and sharing a fundraising campaign. A good word from a donor like you is the most meaningful way for us to spread our mission! Use your social media networks or email to share your love for AAE!! Tell your friends to do the same.
