Hello friends of Changing Gaits!
Welcome to this year's May Capital Campaign, "Care for Our Horses." If there is one thing Guy Kaufman teaches everyone he comes into contact with is this: Too Blessed To Be Stressed!
While we work hard to follow Guy's golden advice, there are daily struggles on the ranch and within each of our lives that make it hard at times. For example, have you been to the grocery store lately? The gas pump? Well, of course you have, and at the ranch we are seeing the same soaring prices. Feed and veterinary care have risen 15% over last year for our most valuable asset: Our 32 beautiful Equine horses.
Guy's motto places emphasis on 'blessings'. Whether you are in recovery or your eyes are bulging out at the checkout counter, Guy asks that we go forth in faith knowing in all things we are first blessed. When the stresses of life hit each of us, we are asked to go to the source of every mercy, and the one who so wonderfully comforts and strengthens us (1 Corinthians 2:3,4).
This is our 5th annual May Capital Campaign. We have been enormously blessed from each of you over the years. For that, we thank you. Since we began our Strategic Plan in 2020, our Equine Therapy ranch has grown substantially (see our data below). But there are many more people to serve, to heal, and that is why we ask you today, to once again support our mission during our 2023 Capital Campaign in order for us to continue to do the work that is so badly needed for so many souls.
We have added several exciting things to our campaign this year. We have been blessed by two anonymous donors that will match your donations up to $4,000! So, if you give $25.00, that turns to $50.00. One hundred turns into two hundred, and so on. What a blessing these two people have provided us! Also, for every donation over $50.00, you automatically win two chances to spend a day with Guy Kaufman at the ranch. And, if we meet our goal of $20,000, Guy will shave his head and the video will be posted on Facebook for all to see. You don't want to pass up these amazing and exciting opportunities!
To support Changing Gaits financially during this campaign means you are making a difference in the life of a juvenile or an adult that needs healing in their lives, and our horses will receive the best feed and veterinarian care. YOU will be the blessing!
