In honor of reaching Royal Flush status I've decided to do a giveaway. To enter the giveaway I'm asking everyone to donate at least $1 (or more) to one (or more) of the charities listed below.

A little info: before my occupation change my whole career and life was horses. I know first hand how an economy crash can affect the care of horses, so I'm asking for small donations to a horse charity of your choice to help those in need. This will be easiest for US members however, I checked in with Canada, France, and overseas and almost all places I checked have a charity of some type. I will open this to international members if you can choose a charity in your location and show submission of a donation either here or via PM.

What is up for grabs:
Currently at the airport waiting (with @Ben8257 and @Lil Tuna) to pick up a PCF member who's finally been able to make it home through this mess covid created. I will have to update with pictures later.

SOLD
MSK PCA sample plaque set (1 ea. $1k $5k $25k $100k)

The person to make the largest donation will get first stabs at what they would like.
Everyone else (5 total winners) (I have decided to call as many winners as I have items left for)will be selected from a random organizer. Shipping will be covered up to $8 for US, international I will cover $8 (you will be responsible for the rest)

Please keep an eye out for another giveaway coming as I have a surprise in store!

Very cool. I will be looking through your organizations and making a donation or two. My sister was very involved with Paint and Pinto horse shows when she was younger. In fact she was the National Pinto Queen one year. Probably in the 1980s or early 90s. We had a running gag for years as to which were better, real horses or steel horses! (motorcycles)

Holy crow, what's the shortest amount of time that it took someone to reach royal flush status??!? I joined a month before you and I now sit 10,329 posts behind you. And that's INCLUDING this one!
No kidding! I feel like I'm on here ALL THE TIME! Posting about 200 times per month it will take me 4 more years to get there.

I really like it when giveaways include a charity. Never heard of Victory Junction before but love the focus. Thanks for sharing so I could have a few minutes of my day thinking about and donating to a great cause. In on the giveaway and in on the donation!

Edit for donations totals - $25.93

Yeah, I was also looking into VJ; anytime kids with illnesses can have a little brightness in their lives, it's a good thing.

My daughter absolutely adores horses and horseback riding... only wish I could afford to let her do it more often! I will be donating - do you mind if I find a local horse charity to donate to? I would love to get my daughter involved and maybe not just financially!

So, you're denying involvement? Luckily, I wasn't in that hand, but if I had lost to the RF, I'd have to investigate your meddling a little more.

Again, what a fabulous way to celebrate your 10,000th post. Donating to VJ today...

Donated $20 (extra $.80 covers all associated fees) ... something neat is that Victory Junction notified me that my company provides a match for donations to them. So, this will turn into $40!

Yo, Brie, again, you rock. Lots of people on here are good people, but sometimes we just need a reminder to help out charities. You'll have to remind us against next month when you hit 20,000 posts.
