What is Giving Tuesday Now (#GTN)?
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The idea behind this new day of giving is the belief that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad.
“#GivingTuesdayNow is a chance for us to stand united and use grassroots generosity to show that we are all in this together, beginning to end. Even as many face financial uncertainty, generosity is not about size. Every act of kindness is not only a beacon of hope, it’s a critical act of civic and social solidarity.” ~ Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday
There are many ways to be involved in Giving Tuesday Now and we encourage you to participate in any way that makes sense for you.

TRF Giving Tuesday Now: Two Ways to Help
Grain Goals & Pony Power
Grain Goals: A Month of Grain for the Horses
Help us reach our goal of $13,000. This sum represents the amount that the TRF spends each month, across all of our farms, to purchase grain for the 550 retired Thoroughbred racehorses in our care. We invite you to help us meet this goal at a time when uncertainty pervades the economic landscape. The gift of one month of certainty for this most-important item in our budget is a precious gift indeed, and your contribution at any amount will make an immediate impact. Please join us on May 5th!Donate
Pony Power: Drawings to Brighten the World
#TRFPonyPower: Share your drawings for the horses! We know many of our our friends of the TRF Herd have children at home who are missing their time outdoors – and who dream of spending time with the horses and ponies they love. The TRF Team invites our friends to draw pictures of their favorite horses (and ponies) and share them with us on Social Media (or email them to us). #TRFPONYPOWER Please join us on May 5th!
