We received some great contributions on Giving Tuesday, with over $1000 being donated via Facebook alone! We're still over $5000 short of our December goal, however.
Did you know it costs us over $2200 a month for stable fees, food, medical care, farrier fees, and other expenses for Therapeion's horses? Thus, between now and the start of the March classes, we will need about $6500 to keep the horses fed and ready to go. We also want to replenish our scholarship fund: $3500 will cover scholarships for need-qualified riders in the 2020 classes. So, when you see that we have set a total goal of $10,000 that isn't really an arbitrary number or overly-wishful thinking!
Please consider Therapeion for your year-end giving. Donations are tax deductible. You should also think about the special gift opportunities we have for holiday gifts: sponsor a rider, sponsor a horse, or sponsor some classes in someone's name. We'll send you a personalized certificate you can give showing your generosity in their honor. See the Donor page for details.
Another thing you can do is to share our donor campaign page, Pony Up for Therapeion, with family, friends, and on your social media feeds (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). Encourage people to contribute to a worthy cause! Every contribution helps, from $10 to $1000. Please don't delay -- we need your assistance today!
Oh, and by the way -- Willy continues to make steady progress. Today he even went outside for a while to get some fresh air and sunshine. Thanks for your continued good wishes!
