WALKIN N CIRLCES RANCH INC
November 26, 2012

As hay prices soared, the crisis of abused and neglected horses reached a critical level. Walkin N Circles Ranch (New Mexico Horse Rescue) somehow expanded their facilities to meet new demands and Executive Director, Charles Graham, reached out to other horse rescue organizations around the state to coordinate efforts. After the death of my two ancient horses, I donated a couple of truckloads of feed, tack and other equipment to the ranch. They also have a thrift store which takes donations. This is a wonderful organization with many committed volunteers. Their website contains a message of hope and lists all of the horses they have saved, trained and made adoptable. This is a truly great cause.

CHILDREN'S GRIEF CENTER OF NEW MEXICO INC
October 16, 2012

I meet with the adult family members during orientation. Their emotions are raw at this point in the grief journey and they tear at my heart, reminding me of the early days of my own grief at the loss of my husband. However, I know they are entering an incredible program that will give them (and their families) the support they need at this challenging time. I share their pain and try to give them hope for a "new normal" life that can still be rewarding. The staff and programs offered deserve strong support because they make a profound difference in many lives.

CHILDREN'S GRIEF CENTER OF NEW MEXICO INC
May 16, 2012

I work as a volunteer with the Children's Grief Center and feel it is an exceptionally valuable organization. The people involved are incredibly committed to serving a community of people in emotional pain and helping them through the grief journey. I know the entire family benefits, although the primary emphasis is on the children who have lost a caregiver. Since there are also adult support groups it helps everyone understand how differently children grieve and ensures they get the support they need. Grief is a journey that can be made much less lonely and painful when you have the Children's Grief Center.
