December Bucket Funds are always tough… People are using their excess dollars to gift others and put smiles on faces during the Holiday Season and not concentrating on Charities. I totally understand. Me, too.
But, today, I have to tell you about our Bucket Fund Ambassador, Buddy. His photo is the one I have been using to depict his cause: The older and forgotten horses from THE GOLDEN CARROT.
Sadly, as with all older horses, they pass. Sometimes unexpectedly.
So, once again in this tragic month, I am posting a tribute written by the one who cares for them all. I cannot imagine the pain involved with knowing that you will eventually bury so many old friends – but two in one month is hard to wrap your head around… (Click here to read Oso’s tribute who passed earlier this month.)
As they say, somebody has to do it. Somebody has to come forth and take care of them. Somebody has to be their champion.
God Bless you, Golden Carrot!
And, Godspeed to you, Buddy. May you run with Oso always.
So today I post this message celebrating Buddy – who even in his last month of life touched so many with his honest and engaging Bucket Fund photo.
Atta boy, Buddy. Atta boy.
GOODBYE TO BUDDY
(from THE GOLDEN CARROT NEWSLETTER)
CAN WE HELP the Golden Carrot with their grief, the burial, and the continued care for these older wonderful souls?
Thank you all for your care, concern, tears and donations. Truly, every dollar helps one of the lucky horses in the care of The Golden Carrot.
