The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) launched today a holiday giving campaign that enables supporters to donate to aftercare while sharing a beautiful holiday e-card with their clients, colleagues, friends, and family. Interested individuals can visit the TAA Holiday Giving Donation Page to participate in this season of giving.
The holiday e-card features a stunning photo of a Thoroughbred in the snow taken by renowned equine photographer Barbara D. Livingston. Donations from the holiday cards will be directed toward the care of Thoroughbreds at the TAA’s 56 accredited organizations across the United States and Canada.
“The holiday season is a time to reflect upon and appreciate all that we have,” stated Stacie Clark Rogers, TAA operations consultant. “We wanted to provide our supporters with a way they could contribute to aftercare while also sharing the holiday spirit with their loved ones.”
The holiday giving campaign will run from now through the beginning of the New Year.
Based in Lexington, Kentucky, the non-profit Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance accredits, inspects and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retire, retrain and rehome Thoroughbreds using industry-wide funding. Funded initially by seed money from Breeders’ Cup Ltd., The Jockey Club, and Keeneland Association, Inc., the TAA is supported by owners, trainers, breeders, racetracks, aftercare professionals and other industry groups. To date, 56 aftercare organizations supporting more than 180 facilities across the U.S. and Canada have been granted accreditation and received funding from the TAA.
