I came across this interesting awareness-raising effort by two "urban cowboys" via their twitter feed (via TweetDeck).
Their mission, as stated on their website:
Through shows, demonstrations and fundraising journeys, Saddle Up brings a unique style of role models to teach and bridge gaps in youth principles, family values and individual self esteem.That is definitely a tall order.
This journey was completed "on faith" and "goodwill" without the comfort of a trailer following us, sleeping from woods to barns, to raise money for:
Battered Women and Victims of Domestic Violence
At Risk Youth
If they're ever able to ride their horses north of the border, I'd like to see what they're all about in person.
Make sure to check out their blog as well.
