War Horse Tribute Memorial Contribution Request
1918 / 2018 It’s been 100 years since the end of World War I.
This project would allow Findlay, Ohio to be a part of the fund raising for the “War Horse Memorial” Statue in England. By helping in the funding of the large War Horse Memorial we will receive a 8 1/2 by 11 signed drawing of the statue and a poem written and signed by the artist Susan Leyland. We will be sent a copy of the children's book War Horse autographed by the author Michael Morpurgo.
We helped our allies in World War I, we can help again in 2018!
The plan is to donate the drawing, poem and book to the Mazza Museum. This will be done during the Veteran's Ceremony on Nov. 9 held at the College of Business at the University of Findlay.
We have an opportunity 100 years later to show our allies we still support them in the larger War Horse Memorial installation to be unveiled in England in June, 2018. The US sent almost 1 million horses overseas. Another 182,000 went with our troops. Only 200 may have returned after the war. Most died in battle, starved or had to be left behind. Let us bring one home and place it in an area of remembrance.
We have raised the $2,000 level donation to qualify for the artwork and book. To support Challenged Champions Equestrian Center as they are the stewards of the horses today you can still donate !
