July 18, 2013 — FarmVet, a multi-channel retailer of nutritional, health and well-being, and pharmaceutical products for animals, has announced the return of EAF Day to benefit the Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF). Selected horse shows the Kentucky Summer Series on Saturday July 27 and Hampton Classic Horse Show on Aug. 31 will be designated as EAF Day, where a percentage of the day’s proceeds will be donated to the EAF.
Purchases made on EAF Day at the mobile store at the designated horse shows, purchases made toll-free by phone at 888-837-3626, and purchases made online at www.farmvet.com will contribute to the day’s donations. Customers can also make direct online contributions every time they order using the EAF donation box on FarmVet’s website.
“We are excited about helping EAF raise funds again this year. Since we have started this project, FarmVet and its loyal customers have helped raise over $19,000 to help equestrians in need. Our goal is $50,000.00, so please shop away!” said Christian Currey, founder of FarmVet.
“The EAF is thrilled to have the ongoing support of FarmVet and its customers,” said R. Scot Evans, president of the Equestrian Aid Foundation. “With EAF Day purchases, customers get the great FarmVet products they want with the added reward of helping our fellow equestrians in need.”
For more than 17 years the EAF has delivered financial assistance to equestrians, horsemen and equine-related professionals who are suffering from catastrophic illnesses or injuries. In September 2012, the EAF reached a milestone of giving more than $2 million in aid to those in dire need. Funding for medical, rehabilitation and essential expenses–such as food and housing–enables recipients to cope through crisis and get back on their feet. The EAF is dedicated to helping people from all riding disciplines, equine professions, backgrounds and ages. The EAF is a 501(c)3 organization.
