Shining Hope Farms has worked repeatedly with top notch digital marketing firm Full Metal Chicken over the past few years. They have been very generous to us and that is why we were thrilled when they won a #BizGivesCLT award for the Most Generous In-Kind Gift to a Charlotte area nonprofit on account of their work with Shining Hope Farms.
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. What the award was for was unexpected, but not all together a surprise.
Shining Hope Farms was quite busy over the Christmas & New Year’s break. We often use this time while kids are not on horses to upgrade the facilities and have jobs performed that we cannot do during regular business days.
Meet Charlie! As you can imagine from the pictures and videos, this handsome little man greets Shining Hope Farms staff, volunteers and equines with smiles, high fives and fist bumps every week! This enthusiasm, love and perseverance are true testaments of Charlie’s personality and attitude toward life, since doctors and therapy appointments have been frequent occurrences for Charlie in his 5 years of life.
We got the call in November, 2017, to foster a beautiful little boy named Bryson. He was at Brenner’s Children’s Hospital for dehydration, neglect, and scabies. He was about seven months old. It was love at first sight for us.
