I've written before about Tristan's rescue, mostly here and here. It remains a place near and dear to my heart because it gave me my best friend, and because it is a place where good people do good work.
Today is Giving Tuesday, as those of us in the nonprofit world know well. The time between Thanksgiving and New Year's is the busiest time of the year for fundraising. People are feeling more generous around the holidays and the more practical among them are looking at their impending tax filings.
So, on this Tuesday after the shopping and spending orgy that was the long weekend, many are considering giving back to their communities.
I will be making a donation to Ever After Mustang Rescue to support their work in rescuing and retraining mustangs.
Here's my twist.
Please comment on this post today with a horse-related nonprofit that you support. Even better, tell me that you've donated to that organization.
For each comment, I will donate an additional $5 to Ever After Mustang Rescue. (Up to a reasonable amount, I do still have a horse.)
So: let me know where you will be supporting with your donations today, or where you have supported in the past. (Last year, I did a roundup of horse-related charities; you can find it here.)
(I did think about making additional donations to the organizations you all support but the logistics started to scramble my brain. Maybe next year.)
