While the particular link that I am going to share is not about up-cycling, it is about something that is also very near and dear to my heart.
Equine Outreach of Bend, Oregon is a great local organization that does wonderful things to rescue and rehabilitate horses and is run by volunteers and depends on donations. Part of being responsible inhabitants of our planet is to care for the four legged friends that cannot care for themselves especially when they have been the victim of someone else's neglect or cruelty.
Please take a moment and visit their website http://www.equineoutreach.com/ and if you can show them some love and support in whatever way possible. On behalf of the animals that depend on this organization I thank you and may God bless you for your kindness.
