Almost there!

Almost there! 
Small step at a long journey but huge for Spirit
Thank you wonderful people out there!
We are just less than 15 hundred below our goal, and hope we shall make it in next 4 days left until the end of indiegogo campaign.
There are survey team out there at the field now frown emoticon, but we are still positive, and believe that our community will recognize that Spirit service is important enough to provide a Home for Spirit.
Not sure how it is going to happen, but do believe that there is a future for Spirit.
Contribution  HERE will be your way to show that you do care for future of children in NOVA area to give them a chance to grow, learn and heal with Spirit horses.
If you can help, do not hesitate to contact us at spiritoep@gmail.com
