PEOPLE HELPING HORSES
August 4, 2011
People Helping Horses is an INCREDIBLE organization. The shoe-string staff work their butts off, and take on the many challenges nonprofits face with resillience and a great additude. If you've ever been the barn, you know why: watching these horses - each with its own personality and story - transformed from nearly-dead to fully-alive is an incredibly inspiring thing to witness. They are always appreciative of a helping-hand, and they never miss an opportunity to turn a volunteer into an expert. As a volunteer, I feel incredibly fortunate to feel very truly like a part of the People Helping Horses family. These guys do a great job with the horses, but seem to need help with their operations. If you have nonprofit or business management experience, please consider lending it to this very worthwhile organization!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching the horses transfored from nearly-dead to fully-alive, and witnessed the shared joy of a horse and a human finding each other and living happily ever after.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
More proactively solicit business operations support, and also redecorate the lounge and office :)
Volunteer & I help keep the barn clean, the horses groomed, and the mailings going out the door!.
