Guess what??

This means that we will be paired with a team competing in the Winter Equestrian Festival, and that we will win anywhere from $15,000 to $150,000!!

Here’s the video of the drawing in which we were selected (once you click to play it, click in the lower right to turn on the audio):


We were fortunate enough to have been chosen two years ago, and we won $30,000! So we are hugely excited to have been selected again.

Please come out to the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center on February 2 to help us cheer on our team. The better they compete, the more we win!!

You can learn more about the Great Charity Challenge here, and you’ll see more details here about the Challenge in the coming weeks. Much gratitude to Fidelity Investments®, Equestrian Sport Productions, and all who organize and support the Great Charity Challenge!

Why we so strongly believe in Holy Ground’s long-term, independent living model:

This 5-minute video depicts a theory of change from the Frontiers of Innovation community for achieving breakthrough outcomes for vulnerable children and families. It describes the need to focus on building the capabilities of caregivers and strengthening the communities that together form the environment of relationships essential to children’s lifelong learning, health, and behavior.
