Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls pay attention !!

here it is ... The one and only Giving Tuesday WinWin Christmas game for the rescue horses of Vires Animaliae 2020! The game you can do from 1st December to 22nd of December. 


GIVING TUESDAY December 1st  is a global day to give something away, an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity - to use their individual power of generosity to stay connected and to dare to share and to receive.

Which horse will win the delicious Christmas wheelbarrow?















This year we want to pamper the horses here at the Vires Animaliae foundation for Christmas!

One of our rescue horses can win this wonderful Christmas wheelbarrow filled with horse treats this year, and of course we make delicious vegetables/fruit baskets for the horses that didn’t make it to win the wheelbarrow.


The human winner of this game can Win a Consultation reading for animals, worth € 50,- and a package of beautiful set of 6 cards worth € 5,95 you can see to follow this link

Every other player who don't win, we have the comfort prize, they can come and pick up 2 big 30kg bags of horsepoo here in Nossa senhora de Machede, Portugal. Your garden will fruit forever, and on arrival we have coffee, tea and applepie ready for you. 

These prices may of course also be given away as a Christmas gift.


The horses are already raring like reindeer, they are looking forward to it!


Vires Animaliae has a particularly challenging year in terms of income this year, and we like to try to make up for that large financial loss in this way, and want to pamper the horses that live here a bit extra before the year ends!

The foundation has also missed many hands and money with which we could do maintenance and work as in previous years. Likewise, the plans to make life easier for the shelter animals, the land, and the Volunteers. Also to be able to make the school, where people learn from and with nature and the horses, more streamlined and more functional for the students. Our site contains the plans and activities

With this Christmas WinWin game we wish to overcome the financial challenges of 2020 together with you as participants.


Regular monthly donations as a remote adoptive parent are of course also very welcome, or a one-time donation without having to play along. You can make your donation without parttaking by clicking on the Spaarpaard - SavingsHorse at the right site above the form below.
