The first quarter flew by and saw four people getting out there and helping out at local events. I want to thank Amanda, Emma, Nadia and Bette for making the time to help out. I know not every region had events during the first quarter and I anticipate a lot more competition now that most of the country is thawing out and warming up.
As a reminder the quarterly award goes to the person with the most hours volunteered during that quarter. It was looking like a tight race between Amanda and Emma, but in the end the winner is:
AMANDA with 17 hours!!!
Congrats Amanda on putting in so many hours during the winter months. For your efforts you will receive a prize package worth roughly $50.
While I do not enjoy shopping for myself, shopping for others gives me great joy and as such I didn’t want to give a random and completely impersonal gift card or basket of uselessness. However, this is Amanda and she has pretty much everything coupled with infinitely better taste than I will ever have.
I wracked my brain, or what remains of it, all weekend to come up with something that she might find useful and/or actually use. A good bit of stalking her blog also commenced although I have been following for a year or so now anyway. I think I came up with some good items to reward her volunteer spirit.
Amanda, here is your prize package:
First, I recalled a post you wrote stressing a tiny bit over what to feed Presto once you got him home and while I know he is already with you now (or should be by the time Monday rolls around) I thought this might help you out:
A one month subscription for both your boys to FeedXl. This is an online tool that allows you to input all consumables for your horse to analyze potential deficits and needs. I know nothing about baby horses, so hopefully this provides some help, plus geeking out over numbers is always fun. I’ll need to create the account in your name, so please email me at agemofahorse at gmail dot com with the account name and password of your choice as well as the email address you would like it attached to.
That still left half the prize package which gets you:
This super cute and probably way too honest mug:
And last is a custom stick horse print of you and Henny (which pictures I pilfered from your blog is a surprise tho). These really caught my eye and looked so darn cute. Here is an example of a non custom print:
If you can email me your mailing address and the info needed to set up the online account, I’ll get everything ordered and out the door to you although the custom print will take some time to arrive.
April is another monthly drawing which is completely random. It doesn’t matter if you volunteered 1 hour or 100, everyone who submits hours to me by the end of the month has an equal chance to win. Also, while the overall numbers add up throughout the entire year, each quarter starts back at zero, so the 2nd quarter prize is now beginning. Get out there and volunteer!!
