About this campaign
Dear Sir or Madam,
Please let me take this opportunity to introduce myself as a United Professional Horsemen's Association’s Ribbons of Service participant. I’m representing Christy Parker and Pine Haven Stables and Riding Academy in Brunswick, Georgia. I am challenged to raise funds — a minimum of $2500.00 — for 1Boy4Change’s Warrior Beads Program. I am further challenged to complete a minimum of 100 hours of community service hours before the end of the 2016 equestrian show season (October 31, 2016).
At the end of the show season, awards, prizes, and scholarships will be given to the participants. A scholarship will be given to the participant who raises the most funds for their designated charity. Each winner will be eligible for the overall award (including scholarships). Another scholarship will be given o the participant with the most community service hours.
I chose to raise funds for 1Boy4Change’s Warrior Beads Program:
The Warrior Beads Program is open to anyone who has a medical journey to share — no age limitations, no illness limitations, and "Survivors" are welcome.
Through the Warrior Beads Program, the participants will tell their medical journeys using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage. These commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment paths.
All Warrior Beads were
developed in collaboration with experts in the field (nurses, doctors, child
life specialists, therapists, social workers) and participants, so that each
bead reflects meaningful acknowledgment of the participant’s treatment journey.
Major benefits of the Warrior Beads Program:
Ongoing evaluation of the program indicates that it helps to decrease illness-related distress, increase the use of positive coping strategies, helps participants find meaning in illness, and restores a sense of self in participants coping with serious illness. The program also provides something tangible the participant can use in discussing their experiences during and after treatment. The Warior Bead Program hasmore tha 1,200 prticipans in sixteen countries and never charges a fee to its participants. It impacts participants around the world.
Thank you so much for considering this opportunity. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
