I have created a foundation for horses after having an accident where I could no longer work in a regular job, so I created my own job, because I am creative person, and I have always worked and it was difficult not to be able to go back and earn in my first trained skill of banking and finance. So I decided to use my secondary skill qualifications in horses. This foundation was not only for myself – to create my own job. It’s purpose is to help other through exchange of service.
The last 12 years I worked very hard to pay and provide for all of the foundation, feeding and living costs, by myself. Over the last year, I have faced financially difficulty because people decided not to pay the work I had done in exchange for service in fairness, and then these same people decided to create me further issues by cutting my fences and letting my horses out. In the country we live it is very hard to recover these types of losses, and insurance only covers damages what the horses outside the property, but not what others do to us, therefore I have to pay to go to court. As the damages amounted to 30,000 euros, it has become financially hard to cover this cost, let alone go to court and has made buying hay, feed and to pay rent. Losing this money on damages takes away from buying not only feed but also medical supplies, treatments, helping further others.
The foundation consists of horses – where we help people around the world to learn on care, helping them horse issues and education, adoptions, helping the elderly when they are too old to manage their pets, when a pet or equine dies, equine therapy, emotional healing, grief counselling, rehabilitation of horses. I am the only earning person, I do it all, and have help from young interns onsite who are not paid, they are taught in exchange for work. All is about exchange. All I earn goes to the foundation, and having this loss is a lot and we owe already the bank the 30,000 euros for the damages over the last year.
This is the first time I am requesting asking for money publicly. My request 4,000 euros for an urgent donation so I can buy feed and hay for the horses and pay the current land rent, until I can work enough to catch up from the loss. It’s winter here and the land has turned into sluge because we had to pay for damages rather than investing in the ground. If damages were not fixed, we would be charge for not respecting the law. We really deserve this money, as great work has been achieved, and I want to continue as I know if I receive financial assistance now, I will be able one day be able to pay it forward to other people.
If we are helped, as an official foundation, we can provide a tax invoice where the person or persons donating can received a tax refund from this donation. So this makes a donation both giving and receiving aspect. We need urgent help, and we can give back via tax refund.
Many thanks for helping us, I very appreciate being able to ask via this site request form. With gratitude,
