Bluebonnet Needs Community Support to Help Win up to $25,000 in ASPCA’s #HelpAHorse Day Contest
#HelpAHorse Day is a month long contest sponsored by the ASPCA. During the month of April, we have fundraising and awareness raising events throughout Texas and online. The funds raised by these events will help us with the 47 horses who have arrived at Bluebonnet so far this year (as well as the many more who are waiting on space in the rescue). We are also in the running to win up to $25,000 in additional funds from the ASPCA. The more people who attend our online and in person events and the more funds we raise, the better our chance of winning.
The easiest way you can help with our contest is to join our online Facebook event. To do so, go to https://www.facebook.com/events/1851652348424159/ and click ‘Going’. You can also comment on the event to share your Bluebonnet story, post photos of your Bluebonnet horses, like comments, and invite your friends to the Facebook event.
Ongoing events you can also get involved with:
Bluebonnet Photo Show – April 1-23
Enter photos of your horses (and other animals) or buy/sponsor a class. Voting will be April 22 and 23. 1st place winners will get a rosette, 2-6th will get flat ribbons.
Bluebonnet Ride-a-Thon – April 1-23
Riders across the country are seeking sponsorships per ride and logging rides on their personal and Bluebonnet horses. You can still become a sponsor and help a lucky rider win prizes. Or you can click ‘Going’ on our Facebook event to show your support!
