I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day and that includes our four hooved friends as well. While mostly we talk about the negative, but honestly we have a great deal to be thankful for. The slaughter plants in this country are all closed, the wild horses have had a reprieve, more and more people are becoming aware of the issues facing our beloved equine and we are among people who care.
I know that tomorrow morning is the official start of the holiday shopping season. I know that many of us don't have the disposable income we have had in previous years. All non-profits are suffering right now and the AHDF is among them. But rather than asking for donations, although those are ALWAYS welcome, I am asking that if you are doing online shopping use the AHDF Mall or one of our other resources where AHDF gets a portion of your purchases. Many if not all stores are offering the same early specials online as in the stores and most are offering specials only available online. So visit us at http://www.mypowermall.com/mall/113800 and help AHDF with your purchases. You can also shop at iGive, http://www.igive.com and specify AHDF as your charity. The AHDF also has many cute and funny items for sale at our Cafe Press store at http://www.cafepress.com/*HorseDefense*. Finally, R9 Custom Horse Creations offer a program where you can buy custom saddle pads and the proceeds go toward feeding the horses in AHDF's care. So, simply by shopping for your holiday items you can help the AHDF, what could be easier?
Again, I hope everyone had a happy and full day with family and loved ones. I know I did.
