Provide Care for a Differently Able Child's Pony

Aug 16, 2013

A Little Help in So Many Ways

Dear Supporters,

As you know, Personal Ponies has ponies all over the country and in Canada.  At times, our volunteers do find themselves over burdened with life.  Their burdens come in all forms, illness, finances, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.  During those tough times, they often need support from us in order to keep caring for their ponies.  We are so grateful to those that have contributed to our program through GlobalGiving.  Each donation has made a difference for us!   This summer we have used your donations to help various volunteers.  One long term director of ours has had to hire help in her barn as she finished her chemotherapy and her husband is out of work.  Another volunteer has not been able to care for all her ponies and we sent a trailer from 10 hours away to come get some of her ponies and leave her with enough hay for the winter for those she kept.  Another young child's pony unexpectadly passed away and we have used some of your contributions to send a new pony to her.  And the list goes on!

We really do appreciate every last penny that is sent our way.  Our office expenses do not exceed  $6,000 a year to run a large organization that reaches wide and deep.  That is unheard of in today's society!!!!  As each person in our program is a volunteer, it means that your contributions always goes to the core of our program, the chidren and the ponies.  We cannot thank you enough!

Please do join our facebook fan page to see pictures of our ponies and see some of the magic!

All the best,

true love

Helps pay for feed and hay for a child's pony. Many times paying for pony care can be cost prohibitive and our national office tries to help. Providing money for feed and hay can make a difference.
Helps cover some of the yearly health costs for maintaining a child's pony. Veterinarian fees can be costly, especially given the costs a family faces for the care of a differently able child.
Pays part of transport costs for pony travel. Getting our ponies to the children that need them can be very costly. Transport is one of our biggest challenges
Provides funds for breeding costs for broodmare and foal care. Without volunteer breeders we have no future program. Breeders are in need of financial support at times especially for foaling.
Will cover the costs for a new family to purchase halters, leadlines, water buckets, grooming equipment, and saddles or driving equipment.
Pay the cost of gelding one of our young colts so that he can begin his life as a child's pony friend. All colts not in our breeding program are gelded at around 6 months of age.
Will help care for one of our retired ponies for one year. Retired ponies have given a life of service often need extra care and support. Retired ponies are treated with great care and appreciation.
Will be held in savings for emergency care for a pony whose family needs help. Economic conditions or personal situations require emergency financial support so a child can keep his or her ponies.
Donating through GlobalGiving is safe, secure, and easy with many payment options to choose from. Learn more.
