Since its founding in 2012, millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Whether it be one person reporting a stolen or missing horse, or that one person who does the right thing and helps locate a stolen horse. By donating to our organization, you can unite with thousands of other passionate people and make a difference.
After two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday –#GivingTuesday is a day for giving back. In dozens of towns, cities, regions and states from Alaska to Maine, and Charlotte NC to Dallas TX, people are embracing this day as an opportunity to raise money for local nonprofits, schools and arts organizations; run food and clothing drives; teach children about philanthropy; encourage acts of kindness; collaborate with their neighbors; and celebrate generosity.
In 2015, nonprofits raised more than $117 million online on #GivingTuesday to help make the world a better place in countless ways. Much more was generated offline and through donations of time and other resources. People participated in #GivingTuesday activities in 71 countries around the globe last year, and this year, participating countries include Australia, Brazil, Kenya, Slovenia, Tanzania, the UK and more.
Stolen Horse International aka NetPosse.com joined the #GivingTuesday initiative to help raise awareness about missing, lost and stolen horses throughout the United States and Internationally. In order for our organization to be able to help those in need during the search for their horse, we ask that you help us help others continue to Bring Horses Home™. We have partnered with many organizations, law enforcement agencies, groups of all sizes to help us get the word out about missing, lost and stolen horses. We have most recently joined forces with several search and rescue (SAR) organizations that help us to search for horses using Drones, SAR Canines and Mounted Patrol and Search and Rescue Teams.
“We joined #GivingTuesday because it is a time to get our equine community together to be a part of a global celebration of people giving back to their community. And in our case, it is giving back to the equine community. It is nice to have a day dedicated to kindness and generosity. And never underestimate the power of one to make a difference.” Debi Metcalfe, President and Founder of Stolen Horse International aka NetPosse.com.
#GivingTuesday was born at 92nd Street Y (92Y), a community and cultural center in New York in 2012. Since then, people from different backgrounds, cultures and regions around the world have helped to create a global day of giving that reflects 92Y’s commitment to strengthening communities and repairing the world.
“The tremendous response to #GivingTuesday over the last five years has been both humbling and inspiring,” said Henry Timms, Executive Director of 92Y. “We have seen countless examples of communities coming together to address challenges. Giving is a powerful reminder of our shared humanity, and the willingness of so many to participate and elevate giving is reason for celebration – even with lots of work still to be done.”
