Getting Through Winter

Dear Friends of Personal Ponies,

We can almost say winter is behind us!  This is always something we all look forward to because spring means shedding pony coats and more time to be out and about with the children we serve.  Some of our volunteers though are lucky enough to live in warmer climates and have spent all winter out and about making pony magic!

The funds we had collected for 2012 have been very helpful and in this report I just want to share a few places we have used the donations received through 2012.  We had one family in Michigan that lost their jobs and were not sure they could keep the ponies for their children.  We were able, because of all of you, to provide enough funds for hay and feed for the winter are happy to report that the family is soon working again and life will be good!

We also had a long time volunteer pass away towards the end of last year who housed five of our ponies and ran a community program for Personal Ponies.  We were faced with relocating the ponies and making sure they could be cared for in the interim.  We provided funds for hay and feed and basic care and tehn were able to transport the ponies to a new volunteer who has taken over and actually expanded our program in Minnesota.

We also had a darling young boy who had surgery.  He had many surgeries and many of you may remember him because we wrote about him once before.  Through our donations, we were able to bring to him a pair of driving ponies upon his return from the hosptial.  We also were able to buy him harness to use so he could drive them.

And the list goes on.  We really are deeply appreciative of the support from each of you.  It allows the chance to reach out to so many and keep the magic of our ponies alive for the children that we serve.

All the best,

Denise Chasin

National Director
