Update from Jodie Kelly - To those of you who have donated - This is where your money is going. From field to Louisiana and factory to Louisiana. Straight through, no middle man.
Huge shout out to Otis, my hay man, for getting the job done efficiently and with a smile! And also donating 60 bags of oats himself.
Thank you to Eddie Chalmers and Sun Coast Pine shavings for such a quick response and being SO generous. They not only covered the freight, but they also gave us a super price on shavings. 1400 bags of Sun Coast shavings will make it to Louisiana tomorrow, just as many are trying to make their barns livable again. One 47 stall barn is anxiously awaiting them, as their distributor was also flooded.
GREAT JOB to everyone who has and is continuing to make these efforts possible.
How you can help - Jodie and Laurie Kelly are helping to manage coordination of needed items along with funds so those who want to help know that all finds are directly helping the Louisiana Flood animals.

What began as a text to friends and clients to raise funds for sending hay, has exploded into an operation spearheaded by Jodie and Laurie Kelly of Jodie Kelly Dressage in Destin Florida.
