Help British Equestrians for Ukraine
The crisis in Ukraine has unfolded in heart-breaking fashion, impacting people and animals in ways many of us haven’t experienced in recent history. However, the global outpouring of donations and support in the face of such conflict has been a wonderful, albeit emotional, experience to witness.
Alongside our customers and supporters, we have been looking at ways we can contribute to the relief efforts being undertaken. While we are a small company operating out of South West England, we have always been committed to supporting those in need.
We considered sending physical donations, and have a great deal of appreciation for those taking on such efforts. However, financial donations are also needed so we have chosen to support British Equestrians for Ukraine, a group of British equine organisations gathering donations and channelling resources to those affected by the conflict.
British Equestrians for Ukraine
The British Equestrians for Ukraine initiative is coordinating with the equestrian federations of Ukraine and Poland to facilitate collection and distribution of donations.
Headed by the BEF, BHS, and BETA, they are asking for donations so they can purchase essentials like horse feed, bedding and veterinary supplies, and pay for transport so resources can be distributed where they are needed most.
Disasters Emergency Committee
Alongside the equine welfare response, British Equestrians for Ukraine are also encouraging contributions to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine response.
The DEC, a group of 15 top UK charities, is working to provide relief to people affected by the crisis in Ukraine. Your donation will help purchase urgently needed resources like clothing, food, shelter, medical care and transport.
How You Can Donate
We are inviting you to join our fundraising effort, and have started our contribution with 200 Tokens (£100). For every donation up to 100 Tokens, we will match your contribution. We will split the proceeds between the British Equestrians for Ukraine fund and the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine initiative.
We are currently unable to take or match cash donations made directly to these organisations, but please visit the websites linked below if you wish to make a financial contribution.
We will match your Token donation up to 100 Tokens
Thank you. We will match the amount you donated up to 100 Tokens and add it to the fund.
How to make a direct cash donation
We understand if you would prefer to make a cash donation to one or both of these organisations, so please go to their websites and follow the directions given. Please note that we are unable to match donations made directly to the charities, but we thank you for taking the time to donate.
However you choose to donate, your contribution is incredibly valued. There is a Ukrainian saying that, roughly translated, states ‘Hope is the last thing to die’ – if anything has been learned from recent events, it is that we have plenty of hope yet.
