What is Giving Hearts Day?
Giving Hearts Day is a 24-hour fundraising event for charities in North Dakota and northwest Minnesota. Since the first event in 2008, generous donors have given more than $138 million, 100% of which goes directly to participating charities. Over 550 charities are participating in Giving Hearts Day in 2023.
THIS was a process and a HUGE learning curve to be a part of! We are thankful to our local collaborative for helping us understand this process and make the most of this event. https://www.facebook.com/swndgivingheartsday

Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates has retained the law firm of Eubanks and Associates to help us navigate through this management planning process. They helped us draft a pretty good comment letter to the park! You can read it here:
They also helped draft the letter for our state legislators asking the park to grant them an extension while they worked to pass Senate Concurrent Resolution SCR 4014 – A concurrent resolution urging the Secretary of the Interior and the Director of the National Park Service to modify its proposed livestock management plan, and to continue to allow for interpretative, cultural, and historical purposes a herd of longhorn steers in the North Unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the presence of a wild horse herd in the South Unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
We have $4500 in legal bills from last month alone between letters that were drafted and consultations with our legal team.
We hope that you will help support Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates as we continue to Fight for the Spirit of the Badlands! Remember – TODAY every DOLLAR you donate is DOUBLED!!! You can donate here: https://app.givingheartsday.org/#/charity/1669
Thank you for your support and have a GREAT day!
Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates is committed to advocating for a wild horse management plan and protection for these unique wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home! We are fighting for a management plan that is guided by science especially when it comes to decisions regarding the removal of horses and the administration of birth control. Many other wild horse management plans have proven to be successful with their science-based plans. We are asking for the same for this amazing group of wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home.
