Remember this gorgeous bit of artwork? It can be yours! Featuring Lauren Kieffer and painted by Lisa Curry Mair, it is being auctioned to benefit Brooke USA and their “Give a Donkey a Drink” campaign. This wonderful organization is the world’s largest international equine welfare charity that aids millions of working horses, donkeys and mules around the world.
Brooke USA’s project, “Buy a Donkey a Drink,” is raising support to construct five permanent water troughs in the Shala Woreda district of Ethiopia to ease the suffering of the 11,500 working horses, donkeys and mules in the region. This project will reduce the mortality rate of working equines in this area by an estimated 45 percent. This is just one example of Brooke USA’s extremely important work to help equines around the world. Now you can support the organization by bidding on Lauren Kieffer’s beautiful hand-painted Tucci boot. The painting, entitled “Patrick and Lauren at Rolex” depicts Lauren and Landmark’s Monte Carlo on their way to winning the Land Rover Ride of the Day at Rolex this year. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Brooke USA. The auction ends August 6th and you can bid online. Get yourself some art and do a good deed in the process. [Auction Information]
