Through great sadness came great generosity, as well as the final bit of inspiration needed to build this charitable organization.
Are you familiar with the story of Shamrock Kid? You can click here to learn about Shamrock Kid and the amazing community at Wasabi Ventures Stables. The very short story is that the untimely loss of this horse inspired a large portion of the community at WVS to make generous donations to aftercare. Building on this sense of community and charity, we have found a special way to honor Shamrock Kid.
Rather than just feeling sad on the anniversary of Shamrock Kid’s passing, we have decided to turn this date into an annual day of celebration. To commemorate this horse and WVS’s commitment to aftercare, we are now marking March 17th as Shamrock Kid Day. Starting this year, we will be collecting funds to help secure the safe retirement of other WVS thoroughbreds. Although we will still miss Shamrock, we are hoping to turn sadness into generosity once again.
To add some fun into this day of fundraising, we have created a commemorative shot glass. Those who donate fifty dollars or more to The Horse Fund will receive one of these specially created glasses. Donations will be accepted prior to March 17th, especially if you would like to have the glass in time to celebrate the day.
We will forever hold Shamrock Kid in a special place in our hearts. Let’s make his memory burn even brighter by continuing to turn our grief into generosity.
