Ukraine Fundraiser


Dear Friends,

We are heartbroken and angered by the devastating suffering that is occurring in Ukraine. Long lines of people in freezing weather trying to escape attacks on their homes. Most of these are women and children. Some literally are carrying dogs on their backs to safety. Those who have stayed in their home country are fighting a valiant and desperate attempt against a gigantic military aggressor while being pummeled by bombs from the air. They are united in their fight to defend their sovereign nation that has been invaded by an autocrat.

We at Blue Skies feel called to action to help the people of Ukraine to survive and to maintain their democracy. We have been in contact with the local Ukrainian Association. Like much of the 'free' world, we want to be a part of that support.

To that end, we are spearheading a giant fundraiser with the goal of raising $10,000 to send to World Central Kitchen Ukraine. This represents 200 donations of $50, 100 donations of $100 or 20 of $500. Any donation, however small, will help feed a hungry family. World Central Kitchen Ukraine is providing front line hot meals to Ukrainians, both inside and outside the country. Donations are tax deductible. wck.org

The fundraiser will be at Blue Skies of Mapleview LLC on Sunday, April 3rd (rain date, Sunday, April 10th). Folks will pre-book a horseback-riding lesson at 9, 10, 11, 12:30, 1:30 or 2:30. Reservations are made in advance by check made out to World Central Kitchen Ukraine for a minimum of $100/lesson. There will be delicious lunch food, music, games, face painting, and more.

Thank you for any offers of support. We have lists of jobs waiting to be done. We can do this together!! We are personally tired of feeling powerless and depressed about a bully attacking a democracy of hardworking people. Let’s gather our positive energy to help in these desperate times. We look forward to your response.

Please consider reserving a riding spot for the event. All ages are welcome but for the safety of our horses, we have a 200 lb weight limit. No experience is necessary as each horse will have a counselor. We look forward to meeting your whole family at this fundraiser on a beautiful outdoor venue.

Warmly,
