This May 6, 2014, the Great Give PBC will celebrate 100 years of giving, and your favorite charity, Horses Healing Hearts, is part of the 24-hour online donation extravaganza. To donate to HHH, please visit

Led by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Countries and the United Way of Palm Beach County, the Great Give PBC is designed to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in a single day. This community-wide event will celebrate the spirit of giving and the collective effort it takes to strengthen the community by raising critical funds. Horses Healing Hearts is thrilled to take part in this event, and is asking for your support on beginning at midnight on May 6.

Your passion will be heard on the fateful 24-hour Great Give PBC day. Although there are hundreds of programs, Horses Healing Hearts (HHH) is the only one of its kind! In September 2009 Lizabeth Olszewski of Wellington, FL founded HHH, and in the last five years, the organization has blossomed while raising awareness and funds to help ease the pain of children of addiction. Horse Healing Hearts provides these children with the opportunity to help heal emotionally by working with horses while having fun and learning positive life-coping skills, responsibility and confidence. Using equine experiential learning, HHH is the only program in the nation that works with the specific demographic of children of alcoholics and addicts.  Horses help them understand life, themselves and how to cope with their parents’ addiction to substance abuse.

A one-time donation of $500 will provide four group lessons for the children for a Saturday session. $150 will pay for a month of food for 35 children to snack on during group activities, and after their riding lessons. A $75 donation will provide the children the opportunity to work with a group facilitator to discuss their home life, feelings and have a safe place to disclose. For only $50 you could give a child a protective riding helmet.

Whether your donation is large or small, every cent counts. The minimum donation is $10. Your donation will help pay for equipment, lessons and the assistance of a child facilitator.  HHH touches hundreds of lives a year, and they need your help making a difference.

Every local donation will be amplified with bonus dollars raised by the Community Foundation. This unique event inspires philanthropy throughout the community, raises important dollars for community good, and keeps the good going.
