Thanks to the generosity of many donors, our anti horse slaughter billboard project finished in 3rd place in the Global Giving Open Challenge!
It was a harrowing race to the finish line - we were in 5th, then 3rd, then 2nd, then 3rd, then 4th, then 2nd and finally when the buzzer (well, the online timer version of a buzzer lol) went off we had finished in 3rd place! That means we also won a $1300 bonus from Global Giving!
We also had THE MOST Facebook shares of ANY project in this challenge. We were the only horse rescue in the Challenge and the only animal charitiy in the Top 30.
NONE of this could have been accomplished without the hard work and determination of our readers, followers, supporters and donors - folks that believe horse slaughter is inherently wrong and believe we CAN make a difference by educationg the public with our billboard campaign.
Our overall goal is $30,000 and thanks to everyone who donated we are more than halfway there and our project is active and accepting donations!
Our most recent billboard, pictured in this report, went up in Indiana on I-69 just a few days ago!
THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this possible and thank you to the folks at Global Giving!
