I wanted to participate in that cool challenge, November’s National Writing Month (#NaNoWriMo), but I don’t think it’s realistic right now.
It looks like a number of folks are doing a 30-Day Writing Challenge instead. For me, it feels more doable.
Hay for horses – desperately needed at Refuge RR
Today I want to alert people to a food crisis affecting horses at the Refuge RR for Horses, a registered federal charitable organization in Alexandria, Ontario that “rescues, rehabilitates and provides permanent homes for abused, neglected and/or abandoned” animals, including horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs, cats, rodents and domestic birds.
Refuge RR is in desperate need for donations to feed their 75 horses. Please everyone, if you care at all about the animals at Refuge RR, please donate. As some of you may be aware, the spring draught (sic) this year has caused a hay shortage; hence, the cost of hay has skyrocketed. The latter along with the portion of hay set aside for Refuge RR burnt down caused a TOTAL DEPLETION in funds received.
Donations are urgently needed now. Please take note, in order for the horses to survive the winter and to the next spring hay harvest, Refuge RR will need $85,000 to cover the cost of hay. The horses need your help !!!
How you can help (and get a tax receipt too)
- Send an Interac e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org “Please send an email stating amount of your donation you donated via e-transfer, along with your coordinates and e-transfer password if you wish to receive a tax receipt for donations of $25.00 or more.”
