My name is Velvet and I'm a mental health therapy horse for kids 5-12 who have had trauma.
I work with Dr. Susan Edwards, program psychologist, and we help children for about a year and seldom charge them. Sometimes we may ask for a fee such as $50 a month. That's what makes us a charity. Everyone here is a volunteer and does not get paid. Here's why we need your help.
Our non-profit has to pay all costs that a regular business does. But we don't get income like a business. So we rely on the good hearts of others to help us.
Paying for three nonmounted therapy horses is very expensive but our work is priceless. Precious, Little Annie and I all work together in the arena of a child's heart to help kids overcome trauma. Please donate to Team Velvet Inc. We believe in children and work to give them back the joy stolen by child trauma.
Thank you so very much. It costs $40,800 a year just for us to rent the farm. We value every penny given to us. Help us continue to make a difference, one child at a time!
