The one phrase we hear more than any other is “I would love to help but I have no money”.
Let us share with you just how valuable you are with no cash whatsoever.
*Write a creative little certificate to your favorite rescue or an email with a commitment.
*Take a day to email a few of the hundreds of equine suppliers to send outdated items, returns, promos, gift packs etc. to the rescue.
*The donation of a day or two a year in which to sit down and write thank you letters and print them off for a rescue.
*A day or two a year that you can give to go and organize or clean a feed room.
*You can check out the internet and find the various groups and foundations who do donate to animal organizations. Take a rainy day to do this and then forward your information.
*Hold a yard sale with proceeds to go to your favorite rescue. It need not be at the holidays. These horses eat year round so send a promisory note for one to be held next year, and then announce it.
*Hold a concession at a show with proceeds to the organization of choice. Put out a donation can somewhere or a collection at work, any time of the year is good. Just make a commitment.
*Have a candy dish at work and have people donate their change in exchange for the goodies, and then every few months send the collected funds.
*Ask your local vet if you can put a donation can at their clinic for x amount of months and then print a flyer with it. What you can’t give, someone else might be able to. Ditto for a feed or tack store.
You are all worth a lot more than you realize. You have more power than you can ever dream. So, short of cash, no problem. Giving of yourself is the greatest gift and seeing the returns from what some of these very simple ideas can bring, will amaze you.
