Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society Hay for Horses promotion starting up for Christmas

Tired of trying to think of a present for that certain someone who has everything?

Do you want to find a unique gift that has real meaning and will be unforgettable?

How about buying them a bale of hay (or two or three or four)? Hay, you say? Well, it beats getting coal in your stocking!

Here’s how it works: your donation will help us purchase hay for one of our eight amazing therapy horses for a day, a week or more, depending on your purchase amount. Once we receive your request we will mail out a gift bookmark (not the actual bale of hay) to your recipient, notifying them that you’ve made the purchase on their behalf.

Alternatively, you can pick up the gift bookmark at our office and present it to your loved one in whichever way you wish: laid out on a dish, wrapped up in a box, or maybe inside some socks!

Consider the gift of giving this season that supports a local charity, is environmentally friendly, socially conscientious and is unique. When was the last time you gave a bale of hay for Christmas?

Look for purchase forms in the Comox Valley Record or visit www.cvtrs.com. The requests must be received on or before Dec. 12 to ensure the recipient receives the mailed notification in time.

In December we’re open 10-4 Monday-Thursday till Dec. 17. FMI call 250-338-1968. Tax receipts are available for donations $20 and over.
