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:
Paper Plates (Can you tell we use a lot of paper!!)
Dry erase markers
Heavy duty staples
Gift cards: WalMart, Staples, the Mill, Tractor Supply, Atwoods, Vista Print, Lowes
Art supplies – glue, scissors, paper plates, glitter, tape, stickers, foam sheets, felt, markers, glue sticks, popsicle sticks, clothespins, Google eyes
A Heavy Duty Paper cutter
Leather cleaning supplies
Poultice pads for Horses
Plastic totes in all sizes
Scholarships for riders & staff development
Large Water Bottles for our Dispenser
Safety stirrup bands
An Anti Decubitus Saddle Pad
Long line reins
Horse soccer ball & cover
Fake groceries for our Shopping games
An Alphabet for the Arena
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.
