Help us buy enough toys to fulfill 500
CHILD  SMILES in 21 DAYS  for families working in the race horse industry! 

We are asking you to help us reach our goal to make sure that 500 deserving children from Central KY’s thoroughbred worker families will be blessed with gifts and a family holiday dinner during Blue Grass Farms Charities' Christmas Celebration on December 11 and 12. Don't let any child of racing industry workers "go without" this Christmas holiday. 

Here’s what your Christmas Toy Drive giving will provide:

$20 buys toys, a hat and gloves for one boy or girl
$40 buys toys, a hat and gloves for 2 boys and/or girls
$80 buys toys, a hat and gloves for 4 boys and/or girls
$100 buys toys, a hat and gloves for 5 boys and/or girls

It's heartwarming to know how meaningful this Toy Drive becomes for the parents of these children.
Click on the video arrow below to meet Tiffany and hear how much she appreciates receiving help at Christmas time from  Blue Grass Farms Charities:
Tiffany is a young mother who loves her 3 children more than anything. She also loves her job taking care of horses. Tiffany provides for her family’s basic needs by doing the physical labor of grooming, feeding, walking, watering, turning out and tending to the every day needs of thoroughbreds on a Lexington, KY farm. At this time of year Tiffany is especially grateful for Blue Grass Farms Charities because it gives her enough "extra" to provide a real Christmas for her children.

Monies raised for the Toy Drive will go directly toward the purchase of Christmas gifts for children of thoroughbred worker families in Central Kentucky. Any amount above and beyond the goal will fund additional health and human service programs throughout the year for thoroughbred industry worker families in crisis and need. Thank you for the smiles and happiness you will be generating!
