Horses 4 the Holidays

If wild horses are the only thing that could drag you away from your holiday shopping, take heart: You can help local non profit wild horse sanctuary Return to Freedom while simultaneously crossing the last of those names off your whitelist. There are a couple of ways to help: for the equine enthusiast, you can sponsor a horse for $45 per month, which goes to help feed and care for one of Return to Freedom’s horses or burros; or, do your shopping through, where you can shop thousands of the most popular retailers, and by designating Return to Freedom as your charity, you’ll ensure that a portion of your purchase will be donated by the retailer — and it doesn’t cost you anything extra. Finally, you can visit Return to Freedom’s online gift shop, which offers links to artists and other merchants who will donate a portion of their proceeds to the cause. Visit returntofreedom.orgfor more information.
