And by flake out I mean make a donation to a local horse rescue's Flake Sale (get it, bake sale - flake sale!) that is in support of the many horse owners around here that lost their feed in the recent floods. For some that may have been just a few bales but for others they have lost their entire winter's worth of hay for their animals. One of our local news stations did a segment about the Flake Sale and you can see it here. The Fairgrounds in the town where I went to high school (and I actually showed my horse there once when I was IN high school) is now home to dozens of displaced horses.
I just can't encourage you enough to go and give, even just five dollars! OK. Twist my arm, maybe I can encourage you just a little more. Should I turn this into a giveaway? Say, maybe you make a comment and tell me that you donated (don't be fibbin' about it either) and how much and I'll enter you in a drawing for - something. I don't know what yet (will take suggestions). I'll think about it and in the meantime you go and donate and get back to me. :)
p.s. The rescue, Second Chance Ranch is a really good rescue. There are based in Grey's Harbor County where I used to live and I got a chance to visit there once before we moved. I can promise you that they are a legitimate non-profit and that they do very good work. Not to mention that you will get a receipt for your donation and that it is tax deductible.
