There are a lot of rescues that hold fundraisers online, but they don't always get a lot of press. I thought it would be nice to keep track of some of them here, since many of them are auctioning items that a lot of us would love to have.

Edit: I think it's important to list the end date if it's an auction, so people know not to keep looking :D

Thank you for doing this! I've thought about it, but never had time to do it.

I keep seeing auctions with low bids on items because not enough people know about them. Drives me crazy :D

Photographer Jay Moran usually has a list of photo portraits of TBs to sell on eBay, 75% of the price of which go to Our Mims. For the holidays, he's added a couple. (I bought one of Blind Luck.)

Here's the link to the halter auction. The starting bids are a little high, but they have some nice ones that you don't see all the time.

Wanted to post a link for the Exceller Fund's Christmas in July ornament sale - http://www.specialhorses.org/fundraiser ... july-2014/. It wraps up August 5, so there's still some time to start your Christmas shopping for a good cause.
