Joel Anderson | Horns Up

Dear Friends,

How much is a future worth?  I am starting the #FranklinsforFutures campaign to get as many people as possible to raise $100 to change a young person's future.  Get involved, share, make a difference!

Horns Up Buyers Group started last year with a mission of helping Texas youth attend college. Last year, the Horns Up team collectively raised over $80,000! This year, Jardin & Cullen Loeffler and I have teamed up to take Horns Up to the next level. Our goal this year is to break the $100,000 mark and we are asking our friends to help us get there.

Horns Up Buyers Group collects donations through Rodeo Austin and uses those funds at the Youth Auction. Rodeo Austin is a 501(c)3 organization, contributing more than $2 million annually to the youth of Texas. The largest source of this giving is through the Youth Auction. Last year, the Youth Auction Committee and its generous buyers raised more than $1.44 million for 414 of the top junior livestock exhibitors.  Your contribution is 100% tax deductible.

In addition to raising a livestock project, these hard working kids are most often involved with sports, school honor societies, other extracurricular activities, and their community. The job of the Youth Auction Committee is to raise funds and reward these kids for a job well done. This is an exciting process for the kids as they walk across the auction block and hear live bids on Friday, March 23 at ACL Live. The exhibitors will use these funds for college and investing in their future. 

Don't have $100?  Team up or share this with everyone you know.  Your retweet, like, share, and forward will make the difference.  Your help is the first step of the long journey.  

Please help me raise funds for these deserving young men and women.
