The Covenant House
This month we turned our focus to supporting kids in crisis, via donating to the Covenant House.
Covenant House was founded in 1972 with the simple, profound mission to help homeless kids escape the streets. Today they are the largest privately funded charity in the Americas providing loving care and vital services to homeless, abandoned, abused, trafficked, and exploited youth.
What we love about the Covenant House, though, is the dedication to youth advocacy.
It is a leading advocate on behalf of homeless youth – for those who can’t speak up for themselves at local, state, national, and international levels of government. They are a member of the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Board of Directors of UNICEF and have a prominent role in The Campaign for U.S. Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
We applaud them!
Save the horses
Here is wonderful charity for all of you horse lovers out there… and animal lovers in general. Save The Horses do a wonderful job with saving abused and displaced horses – of which there are many of. The alternatives for these beautiful creatures are generally horrific, given their size.
SaveTheHorses was created to address the urgent need for rescue services and equine public education. They are an all-volunteer organization, operating solely on the donations given generosity of compassionate and caring people.
The mission of Save The Horses is to improve the quality of life for all horses, thereby improving the lives of people through their bond with the horses. They are committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of equines suffering from abuse, as well as the successful retirement of working equines. They strive to improve public awareness and knowledge regarding the standards of care necessary to insure the health and safety of all equines.
Any donations will help with this grass roots charity given they are run solely on donations.
Giddy up we say!
