Healing, Hope, and Horses: A Thank You

Wake up. Brush your teeth. Take a shower. Go to school or work.

How often do you think about the small things in your life that you probably do every day? Things that are just force of habit, and completely simple – like your morning routine.

There are a lot of things in life that most of us take for granted; the ease with which we are able to wake up and get ready for the day, or type on a keyboard, or even – and especially – communicate with those around us.

One Step Closer, located in Morgan Hill, works with many children who don’t take those things for granted, because they can’t. With the help of volunteers, special needs youth with diagnoses such as autism, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, and more, are able to develop important life skills through an incredible, creative therapy: horseback riding.

In 2015, we were able to contribute $6,000 to One Step Closer, and we recently received this lovely letter from them to thank us! It’s so wonderful to be reminded of the amazing work that our non-profits do, and to see our contributions in action.

There’s no need to thank us, because we’re just proud to be able to help. Thank you, One Step Closer - you're the real heroes, here!
