Yep, I'm gonna signal boost this again. My friends at Disposable Warriors are SOOOOO close to meeting their goal to hand out even more Essential Bags for homeless vets this winter! I've got more than half a MILLION followers on this page and if EACH OF YOU just clicks and gives ONE DOLLAR? Then they meet their goal and a lot of needy veterans get an extra boost through what's going to be a VERY harsh winter. PLEASE help out? ONE DOLLAR is such a tiny amount to give this Veteran's Day, but I promise you it'll make such an amazing, crucial difference for our fighting men and women. Thanks, guys!
Every Sunday for about the past year, my daughter Alice has been going to Pony Posse at White Cloud Ranch in Malibu. The woman who runs it, Liz Gardner, is one of those rare, elevated human beings who improves everyone around her.
She had a little riding club in New Mexico that she decided to keep going when she moved back to Los Angeles a few years ago. It's a group of girls who she teaches to care for their horses -- saddle, tack, wash, train, everything. She treats the girls like the competent adults they're going to be one day and they all blossom under her instruction. Pony Posse has done wonders in terms of helping Alice through some still unspoken aspects, and the other girls in the group are growing and maturing in equally amazing ways.
The fires in Malibu just wiped White Cloud Ranch off the face of the earth. The trailers, stables, all her tack and the entire campsite. Her livelihood is, essentially, gone.
She saved her horses. She and her daughter drove through the flames (I've seen the video and it's like a lost level of DOOM) and made sure their horses were rescued. They watched the rest of their world get eaten by the fire.
And then...and THEN AND THEN they drove DEEPER into the Malibu fires to help OTHER friends get THEIR animals to safety. Everything they had was being vaporized and all they cared about was their friends, the other animals they knew, other lives.
Let's help out Liz and her daughter, There's going to be a thousand stories like this of livelihoods, homes and lives ruined by this disaster. I wish I could help out all of them. For now, I'm gonna try to help someone who was spending her life helping others, and who almost lost hers continuing to do that.
THIS MONDAY! Tickets go onsale for my shows at Leisureland in Galway on June 6th, 2019, and Vicar Street in Dublin on June 8th, 2019! Can't wait to see you, Ireland! Put a shrimp on the barbie for me, and at'sa spicy meatball! C'est manifique!
I've kicked in 2k so far for this fundraiser. I want it to meet its goal, again, this year. Just like they did last year -- which helped a LOT of homeless vets make it through the winter. Let's help 'em make it through this one, too!
