2012 Horse Racing Champions Calendar
PLEASE READ INFORMATION BELOW
I've been selling my Horse Racing Fantasy series calendars for 5 years to help raise money and awareness of the Exceller Fund. This year, I've decided to switch tracks and offer a selection of my Horse Racing Champions to benefit as many Horse Rescue Organizations as I can. To do that, this is a pre-order sale since the more I sell lowers the printing costs. This also lets me be able to donate more per calendar. Once I close the ordering November 4, I will not be able to order more since the price will be too high.
What I need you to do is to purchase a calendar, and either in the ebay or paypal send message to seller box, let me know which Horse Rescue Group you prefer. If you don't have a preference, money will still be sent to an organization. Everyone who knows me knows how important it is for my art to help horses. If you forget, don't worry since I'm going to email you when I get your order.
I expect to ship the calendars the first week of December so that you will receive them in plenty of time for Holiday presents. Any questions please feel free to ask.
