Gladstone, NJ - Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and each year thousands of non-profit organizations participate in a special day following Black Friday and Cyber Monday on December 2nd called #Giving Tuesday. On #GivingTuesday, holiday shoppers can participate by donating to the United States Equestrian Team's mission of supporting the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America's elite and developing international high-performance horses and athletes.
There are many ways to get involved. You may make a donation by going on-line to www.uset.org, or text 41444 with the keyword USET, the amount you would like to donate, and your name. Stables/barns may organize fun activities such as a pony/horse wash, tack cleaning parties, or another creative event that would help raise funds. Tack shops are encouraged to donate a portion of their proceeds or create special promotions on December 2, which would all contribute to #GivingTuesday for the USET Foundation.
Join the incredible group of "athlete ambassadors" that are supporting #GivingTuesday with the USET Foundation including: Jacob Arnold, Leslie Berndle, Ellie Brimmer, Lucy Davis, Katie Dinan, Shawn Flarida, Jacob Fletcher, Laura Graves, Sterling Grayburn, Lauren Hough, Lillie Keenan, Reed Kessler, Candice King, Beezie Madden, Devon Maitozo, Mary McCormick, Mandy McCutcheon, Debbie McDonald, Alise Oken, Tuny Page, Derrick Perkins, Lucas Porter, Wilton Porter, Chloe Reid, Allison Springer, McLain Ward, Chester Weber and Katie Whaley.
