Edited Press Release
The most powerful tool we have is the ability to share information. With the use of the AAPF/CAPF web site and Facebook pages we will be able to get the word circulated to all members. No matter where you are located this program will be able to do something to help in your time of need.
Our goal is to let everyone in a member’s area know that someone is in need so that the membership can pull together to lend a helping hand with work load. We recommend that all proceeds from work go to the injured farrier. This agreement will be left to the parties involved. The Farriers Assistance program will assist as needed.
Fund Raising and Donations
The AAPF/CAPF Farriers Assistance Committee’s first goal is to raise money to fund the program. This will be accomplished in the form of donations, fundraisers and auctions. It may also be possible to collect supplies needed to assist in the reimbursement of those used to provide assistance to farriers that are helped.
The Farriers Assistance Program is designed to allow AAPF/CAPF members to have the peace of mind that they are not alone. It allows the member to take advantage of the entire membership – strength in numbers. It is designed to be a hand up not a hand out. We all know that the only thing better than receiving a helping hand when you need one is being able to offer a hand to someone in need. The AAPF/CAPF is open to listening to any ideas members or horse owners may have to make this a better program. Please contact the AAPF at 859-533-1465 or AAPF@ProfessionalFarriers.com.
