Slide Ranch Participating in Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving, created to celebrate and encourage support of non-profit organizations. While most of us will be enjoying family time on the Thursday of Thanksgiving, taking advantage of great shopping deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Tuesday is the day to give back by making a donation to the nonprofit organization of your choice. Here at Slide Ranch, we are very excited to participate in this special philanthropic day. We've set a fundraising goal of $10,000 on Giving Tuesday, spurred on by an anonymous donor who has offered to match all donations (up to $5,000) received by Slide Ranch on Giving Tuesday. At Slide Ranch, $10,000 will fund a day trip for 100 children from under served, low-income communities. Help give these kids a day to explore, learn and grow on 134 acres of beauty and bounty. Please take advantage of the opportunity to DOUBLE your gift by donating to Slide Ranch on Tuesday, December 3.

Slide Ranch + Disney Channel!
Folks from Disney came for a visit this summer to film a series of Public Service Announcements on healthy food, healthy eating and a healthy planet. The "Pass the Plate" series features farmers from across the country, introducing kids to the bounty and beauty all around us. Where better to start that lesson than at Slide Ranch!
