My plan of action started with a focus on providing a day of fun and support for military families, including children of all ages. Existing community organizations were supportive of the project. Through networking, we built a base of support for my project that will provide volunteer manpower. I have negotiated with organizational leaders to achieve a common vision for this project. A page on Facebook was created by me to get out the word.
Before the event, I plan to publicize it through newspapers, radio, and social media. Working with my community partners, we will be soliciting donations of time and resources from the community. We will organize a schedule for volunteers and ensure that there are adequate food and supplies.
During the event, I also plan on helping children understand the basic care needed to help keep a horse alive and provide a bonding experience between the horse and child. I plan to leave a lasting impact on the community by providing an online forum for families to gather together and support each other whenever support is needed.
