We bet you don’t own a tall boot that looks like this! Lauren Kieffer and the amazingly talented artist Lisa Curry Mair have teamed up for a very cool project to benefit Brooke USA. 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 latest 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.
“As much as the animals will benefit from regular access to water, it is their owners who will be the ultimate beneficiaries because their working partners will be healthier, happier and better able to continue their important jobs,” Dr. David Jones, chairman of Brooke USA, said.
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’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.
The bidding is currently up to $600, and you can place your own bid in a comment at this link. All proceeds will benefit Brooke USA.
