TO BENEFIT IMPOVERISHED CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD
The Bonneau International Pony (BIP), The CSIO Youth of France including the CSIO children, CSIO Juniors, CSIO Young Riders and CSIO Poneys based in Fontainebleau, celebrated its 20th anniversary and introduced a philanthropic element to the competition to benefit non-profit organization JustWorld International.
“JustWorld was founded on the belief that equestrians from around the globe can contribute to making the world a better place,” said JustWorld Founder and President, Jessica Newman. “The BIP truly embraced our “kids helping kids” approach. We are grateful to the show organizers and riders who participated this year for their generous support,” Newman added.
Over the course of the show jumping event, which concluded Sunday, May 1st, a 2€ donation was made to JustWorld on behalf of each rider who completed a zero-fault round. After four days of competition, 1,400€ had been raised. This generous gift from the BIP on behalf of the riders will directly fund JustWorld’s education and nutrition programs for nearly 10,000 children in Cambodia, Honduras, Guatemala, and the United States.
“Our partnership with JustWorld is an important example of how the equestrian sport can create positive change. We are so delighted to support JustWorld’s projects helping children around the world,” said BIP Horse Show Project Manager, Elisabeth Danis. “We are also grateful to all the riders for having allowed us to make such a donation; you have been perfect. We look forward to doing more next year!” Danis added.
With equestrian events and riders from around the world signing up to join JustWorld, the organization has mobilized some of the sport’s biggest names to support building brighter futures for some of the world’s most vulnerable children. From pony riders to Olympic medalists, each and every one of us can help bring attention to and ride for the cause.
