It's that time again to ask for your help in providing for "Brownie" the Marsh Tacky on Daufuskie Island.
We created this fundraising campaign last year in December and are so thankful for the generous support we received! Together, we raised over $750, which was enough money to care for Brownie through April!
Brownie has come so far in the last few months, thanks to your kindess and generosity. If you stop by to see him now, you can see he shines like a new copper penny! Please help us continue to maintain his new and improved condition.
You can even 'sponsor' Brownie with a monthly, automatically recurring gift. For example, he needs one round bale of hay to eat each month. The hay costs $75 plus $25 delivery and $50 barge fee for a total of $150. Your donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Our goal for this fundraising request is $1,500 which will meet Brownie's needs through November.
We plan to renew this campaign on an ongoing, bi-annual basis, every November and May.
Thank you for being Brownie's Besties!
Most of us have at least spotted Brownie off and on over the last few years in our travels to and from lunch at Lucy Bell's. We are happy to have recently reached an agreement with Brownie's owner so that we can have access to him on a regular basis to ensure Brownie receives the care that he deserves, all the while striving to empower his owner with the tools and information he needs to care for his horse properly.
Established in 2015, Daufuskie Marsh Tacky Society's mission is to promote and protect the Marsh Tacky in its native habitat on Daufuskie Island. We have sporadically been able to assist Browie in the past, now with your help we can continue to ensure Brownie maintains his new standard of routine care.
We are asking for your help to raise $250 per month for Brownie's basic needs including hay, feed, dewormer, farrier, dentist and vaccinations. This amount also covers the delivery and barge fees for one 600-700lb round bale of hay.
During this holiday season, please consider extending your spirit of giving and kindness to Brownie the Marsh Tacky. We will continue to post updates with the care he is receiving. Thank you!
