Show Updates! Equine Advocates

The show went well yesterday; again, much of the proceeds went to help nationally acclaimed horse activist group, Equine Advocates. I was introduced to the two founders of the organization, incredible sisters Susan and Karen. They were two of the nicest people I've ever met and you could tell how passionate they are about what they're doing for these animals. They brought a heartbreaking video about their safe haven for horses, which you can learn about on their web site above. The before and after images of the creatures they rescued are just tear-jerking and I'm so happy that these horses were given a better life. Below are the pieces I made specifically for the show to donate proceeds to the Advocates.

I wish I had gotten a better photograph of this...

I donated these two hand-made, hand-painted ornaments to the Equine Advocates. I hope they sold! The show went much later into the evening than I could stay, so I'm not sure how the rest of it turned out. It was pretty quiet while I was there.

Again, the group is a wonderful one. Any donation is tax-deductible, of course, and it goes to help animals who have suffered cruelty at the hands of horrible people. Some of the animals that this organization has rescued were literally snatched off the butcher's block. Really terrible to think about.

Do you have a cause that is near and dear to your heart? I'd love to hear about it,
along with ways that I can help. Together, we can make a difference!

What a wonderful group Jacinta! Horses are amazing animals. Proper treatment of animals is very dear to my heart and if I ever win the lottery I think that would be where I would focus my energies! ~Val
