GIVING TUESDAY Boosts Turning Point

Five short days after Thanksgiving, you have a chance to do some real GIVING online on Giving Tuesday!   Turning Point hopes to join non-profits across the country in this annual campaign,  We are hoping to raise $10,000 this year!   It sounds like a lot, but we will reach our goal if the 1000 people who like our Facebook page give just $10 each.   You can donate by clicking the blue “DONATE” button on our Facebook page.

We realize not everyone is on Facebook, or is comfortable with online giving or giving cash.  You can also support Turning Point by donating one of the many small items we use everyday.  We will be at the barn from 9 to 5 on Giving Tuesday.   And here is a list of those small but mighty needs:

Printer Paper

Paper towels

Toilet Paper

Paper Plates (Can you tell we use a lot of paper!!)


Card Stock

Trash bags

Last year Giving Tuesday allowed Turning Point to replace ALL our safety helmets, acquire a much needed treeless saddle, replace all the brushes in our grooming kits and buy additional shelving for our tack room.  The impact of supplies we would have had to purchase plus cash gifts made a HUGE difference when we lost the revenue from classes this Fall when renovations were delayed.

Please consider making a Giving Tuesday gift this year on November 28th.
