#GIVINGTUESDAY    11/29/16

You Give, We Give!

Tuesday, 11/29/16, kicks off the charitable season and in celebration of this national day of giving why not donate to our horses?  This year, when YOU GIVE, WE GIVE - by sending you a print of EXCLUSIVE Days End Farm photography!  Give via our website's "Donate" button using code: GIVINGTUES (in the dedication field) and receive your print in the mail. All prints are guaranteed to be delivered before the holiday.  YOU GIVE, WE GIVE!

There is no better feeling than being home for the holidays. Everyone deserves to be with their loved ones during this time of year and our horses here at DEFHR are no different. Since our special needs horses require a little extra love and care, what better way to spoil them than to find them a temporary home for the holiday season? We have created a “Homes for the Holidays Care Plan”, in which ALL expenses will be covered by DEFHR. Click the below link to see more details!

Give Us A Home For The Holidays!

Already in 2016, DEFHR has taken in 49 horses that were in need of critical care and rehabilitation. Compared to the 16 horses that came to DEFHR in 2015, it is safe to say that DEFHR has had a very busy and challenging year. Since so many of our incoming patients this year were sensitive court cases they could not be publicized as they have in the past.  But that does not mean that we do not need YOUR support.  In an effort to put the FUN into FUNdraising while also coming up with a creative way to say THANK YOU, we thought it would be a FUN idea to offer 100 chances to win a trip to Bali in thanks for your support! For $100 you will have a 1 in 100 chance to go to Bali (an $1,800 valued trip). Those are way better odds than in Las Vegas!

Your trip for two includes:
• 8 days/7 nights accommodations at Jepun Bali Villas
• Daily complimentary breakfast
• Welcome drinks upon arrival
• (2) scuba dive lessons
• (2) 1-hour Balinese massages
• (1) Pool-side Balinese dinner
