BENEFITING: HUGS FOR HORSES AND CHILDREN YOUTH RANCH INC
Thank you so much for taking the time to look into this fundraiser. I am thankful for your interest in learning more about the Ranch. For starters, the vision at HUGS Ranch is to encourage mental, emotional, physical, and social healing to hurting children and rescued, unwanted, or donated horses by allowing them to share together in experiencing Hope, Understanding, Guidance, and Support in a no-cost, safe, Christian environment. This season at the Ranch, there is a number of children who are struggling through emotional challenges and mental disorders including autism, sexual abuse, a death in the family, depression, bipolar, eating disorders, and lots more. When these children get to work with the horses, it helps them build self esteem by developing a sense of responsibility and they also learn to trust and overcome fear and anxiety.
This fundraising challenge runs thru June 22. Our goal as an entire team is to raise a total of $150,000 towards an indoor arena which will allow the Ranch to operate year round and provide healing for many more children. My personal goal is to reach $3,000 or more!! Every summer, our session slots are filled. Last year we ran after school fall sessions for as long as the weather permitted. With the addition of an indoor arena we would be able to run sessions year-round. For us at H.U.G.S., the thought of reaching that many hurting youth is overwhelming, and so powerfully exciting!
H.U.G.S. is a non-profit organization and is still around today because of all of you who have donated thus far. So thank YOU for making a difference in these childrens lives and providing and supporting them through lifes journey. Every little bit helps and the team at H.U.G.S. Ranch thanks you tremendously for your love, support, and prayers.
Another way you can help is to sponsor 1 of our 15 horses. Each horse requires feed, bedding, veterinary services, and farrier care. If you are willing to help with these costs here are some guidelines:
Donating $25 will care for one horse for one week
Donating $125 will care for one horse for one month
Donating $325 will care for all the horses for one week
Donating $1300 will care for one horse for one year
Thank you so much for your all of your help!
