Hello from Assateague Island! I'm posting to let Horse Forum members know about a unique opportunity to help give a name to one of the wild horses of Assateague Island National Seashore.
The Assateague Island Alliance is a non-profit that was created to benefit the National Seashore and is dedicated to ensuring that the pristine island park has the additional resources it needs to support educational programs, and assure stewardship of resources while encouraging high quality resource-compatible recreation activities.
We are facilitating a charitable auction to give names to the four brand-new foals born on Assateague Island this year! You can provide a lasting tribute to a loved one or give a rare and unique "living gift" that will stay with a horse through its life on the Island.
Our hope is that these fund-raising initiatives on the Internet will provide a creative pathway for the Assateague Island Alliance to educate people who have not yet visited the Island, and will allow old friends to stay in touch with the fauna, flora, and especially the wild Assateague horses.
Check our website or visit the eBay auction site for more information! (NAMING RIGHTS FOR WILD ASSATEAGUE ISLAND FOAL N9BFQ-G - eBay (item 320319669501 end time Dec-08-08 11:58:00 PST))
