This is a necklace we have donated to be auctioned off to help a teen girl live here dream. The necklace has Amethyst and Labradorite beads along with Freshwater pearls and a sliver horse focal.
Here is a link with more information about the girl this will benefit. You can also donate money to her on that same page
Below is a letter from that page with a small explanation of what her dream is.
I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is “Kassidy Howes” and I am seventeen years old. Ever since I was a tiny girl, I have loved horses. I am a very confident rider and my horse “Justice” and I have won many ribbons and trophies. 2013 alone we have won 2 Championship titles in the 2’ Hunter 2 day show, overall 1st in the 2 Phase jumping/dressage show and 4 Championship titles with the BC Paint Horse Association for open show competition points. In the past, my parents have always supported me financially but they no longer have the extra funds to spare. I work at the stables 5-6 days a week in exchange for boarding my horse, paying for his shoes and advanced jumping lessons and I exercise other horses for more experience. I am looking to acquire sponsorship to help me achieve my goal of raising $5,000 for the 2014 show season.
We would like to attend six rated shows and roughly twenty schooling shows. The rated shows cost approximately $300-$500 per show and the schooling shows run from $25-60 per show. I want to prove myself as a rider and trainer by winning championships and high points again.
I know $5,000 may sound like a lot of money but like other sports, equestrian competition is expensive. It is also a very family oriented sport. Both my parents are very involved with my riding. My Mom attends every show and my Dad tries to go to as many shows as he can, when he’s not working. This support has instilled in me a sense of dedication to my sport and pride in what I am trying to achieve. Riding gives me the courage and confidence to reach for my goals and, I AM, one hundred percent committed.
The sponsor or sponsors would be able to receive the receipt from the shows as their tax receipt and in return, I could hand out flyers, business cards or wear some sort of clothing from your company or even have a logo on Justice’s blanket.
There are a lot of companies that sponsor hockey, baseball, soccer etc but not many sponsor equestrian. I think it’s time to change all that don’t you??
Thank you so much in advance for your donation. It means the world to us.
Kassidy and Justice
