Just 2 Days Left!!!
Just 2 Days Left to Help Us Spread The Word!!
We have just 2 days to go in our billboard campaign challenge fundraiser on Global Giving - you have pushed over our goal and we will be able to get about 10* billboards up around the nation! Woo Hoo!!
We are the ONLY horse rescue in the challenge, the ONLY animal charity in the Top 40 charities, have THE MOST facebook shares (we get a bonus for that), we are on the 1st page of "most popular projects" and you have moved us up to 4th place out of the 200 charities in the challenge!!
Please consider a donation to our efforts to help raise awareness about horse slaughter - we can't do it without support from the horse and animal loving community...we still need your support for a big ending (we would LOVE to finish in the Top 3) and....
If we can get to 1st place we could win a BIG donation from Global Giving as bonus grants are still undecided (we are not that far behind)! Only at the conclusion of the Challenge are bonus grant recipients decided. If we get to the top of the leaderboard, we could receive up to $3,000 or more from GlobalGiving!!! (that would mean even MORE billboards up around the country - so please consider a donation today!)
This is SO important to raising awareness in the general non-horse owning public about horse slaughter. We NEED your support to make it happen - NO donation is too small & EVERY donation puts us that much closer to our goal!
Our boards are doing EXACTLY what we want them to do...making people aware and not letting them remain oblivious or turn away from the fact that 100,000 American horses are exported to be brutally slaughtered for human consumption EACH YEAR.
People CANNOT fix a problem they are not aware and a LARGE majority of the country has no idea our horses are being brutally slaughtered to be served up as fine dining for foreign consumers.
If you haven't checked it out yet and want to learn how you can help our efforts - sharing, donating, reading, etc then - CLICK HERE TO HELP!
We are trying to get the message out to the public in as positive a fashion as possible (no graphic photos) - our horses are being slaughtered! The Stop Slaughtering Us educational companion website hits are increasing daily - meaning people are seeing the billboard and then visiting the site.
We receive no federal, state or corporate funding for this awareness and educational effort.
Thank you for helping us - we cannot do it without your support!

*Our current total will allow us to get approximately 10 boards up in 10 states. Below is the Branson, MO billboard that went up last Tuesday! It's in a GREAT location and already we are seeing the website hits increase and the shocked emails have started. Line from most recent email "who the hell is our eating our horses?! What can I do?" - EXACTLY what we want...people learning about horse slaughter and then stepping up to see what they can do to stop it. PRICELESS
