I am a 14-year old girl with a goal of making a difference in someone else's life, and I'm asking for your assistance.
Since I was 5 years old, I've held annual lemonade/cookie stands to raise money for Equestrian Connection, www.equestrianconnection.org, a non-profit therapeutic horseback riding barn for children and adults.
My younger sister has special needs and has been riding at EC since she was little. This therapy has literally changed her life! Before she started riding, she could barely speak or sit up straight. With the horse's help, she finally learned to walk and talk at 4 years old.
When I found out that other children needed this therapy but couldn't afford it, I made a promise to myself to do what I could to help others. So, for the last few years, I've raised enough money to sponsor people for this incredible therapy, every week for the full year. This past year, I raised $10,880. This large sum enabled me to sponsor three children. My goal this year is to raise $21,600: in order to cover six children's therapy.
The following companies are sponsors for Cookies for Charity 2014: ABT Electronics, Argo, Arm & Hammer, Barry Callebaut Chocolates, the Chicago Bears, ConAgra Mills, Cook Construction, Dart Container, Domino Foods, E-Z Up, Kerrygold Butter, Kraft Foods, Make it Better, Michael's Red Hots, Moccio's Pizza (a Bobby V. Restaurant), Morton Salt, Oberweis Dairy, PaintRite, Pappas Company, RothArt Productions, Rust-Oleum, Sunset Foods, The Spice House and ULINE.
In 9 years, I've raised over $47,000! I might have big hopes, but I'm also very determined!
Please help me change someone's life by donating whatever dollar amount possible. It's greatly appreciated!
The lemonade/cookie stand is going to be in August 2015. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or like Cookies for Charity on Facebook at www.facebook.com/cookiesforcharity.equestrianconnection for more information.
Thank you for all of your support!!!!
