Last week, Shining Hope Farms was fortunate enough to receive a Goodie Award from SHARE Charlotte–a nonprofit that brings together and works on behalf of hundreds of Charlotte area nonprofits. The Goodie Awards are a time when SHARE Charlotte recognizes nonprofit partners for their achievements from the past year. The awards are fun, unique each year and meant to provide encouragement to all SHARE Charlotte partners.

Last Wednesday each award that handed out was unique, and until the moment it was announced we were in the dark about what the award would be for. To our delight, we received the Goodie Award for Best Board Engagement. While it was unexpected, we were not surprised as we have an incredible board of directors! Most recently and notably, they took it upon themselves to each adopt and raise money for one our horses during our #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign. We quite enjoyed the lighthearted competition that broke out between the board members during the “competition” (aka campaign). Our board members work tirelessly for our mission and we are so grateful to them for all of their hard work. We hope they feel honored by this award as it is much deserved!
