join the Honeycutt Nation!
Why am I asking you to join me? It is because I want to help other horses that are not as lucky as me. My goal is to raise $1000 every month to sponsor two SAFE horses and give them all the hays and tasty grains they need.

GiveBIG for Birthday!

Last year Birthday meant I was sixteen years old and my good friends gave me Presents which was dollars for SAFE. Some gave this many dollars: sixteen. Some gave more dollars. All presents made me very happy and helped to buy lovely hays for all the SAFE horses to eat.

As Birthday approached for this year, I asked Mom if there would be more Presents for me for the SAFE horses this year. “Oh Honeycutt!” she said, “I am sure your friends will want to help you celebrate your birthday, but there is a way to make those birthday dollars into more dollars if you don’t get them on your birthday.”

Mom told me about GiveBIG, do you know that thing? GiveBIG is a day when all dollars you give to SAFE get bigger because of some nice peoples who will match your dollars to make more dollars!

Let’s use a thing called Example to make it easier: Let’s say there is a people in the barn with a big bag of lovely, lovely carrots. This people says to Mom, “Oh Mom! If you give Honeycutt this many of YOUR carrots: three, then I will give him this many of MY carrots: one, so Honeycutt will get this many carrots: four. This is a good deal for Honeycutt but it’s also a good deal for Mom because she only gave three carrots, but she gets to see me eat four carrots and be a very happy horse. (I love carrots so much!) Does that make sense?

Now the tricky bit is that the people with the big bag of carrots will only be giving out the extra carrots on one day, which is May 6. Do you know that day? May 6 is a day which is soon, but it is not today and it is not my Birthday.

The best part about choosing your own Birthday is that you can choose for it to be on any day you want it to be. Which is why this year I want Birthday to be on May 6 so that my friends who want to send dollars can send dollars to GiveBIG to get even more dollars. This means that I will have to wait extra days for Birthday carrots but if it means that there are more dollars for no more pointy horses, then I am happy to wait. It also means that I am a Super Hero Horse, which makes Sinatra very jealous!

I’ll let Mom explain the rest.
