Mayerthorpe Memorial Rocking Horse Fundraiser

On this sombre anniversary, we are looking to find a spark of hope from a tragic day. This stunning handcrafted rocking horse was made in memory of the fallen four from the Mayerthorpe tragedy to help raise funds for their families. This intent has been carried forward over the years to support more families in the community.

Rick Kaye donated the horse on behalf of his family to the organization Against All Abuse, and his wish was that it raised money for a great cause of our choice…and AAA chose Made by Momma!!! And now Against All Abuse is donating it to help raise funds to support local families facing adversity or crisis.

This is a rare opportunity to own such a special part of this powerful piece of history by helping bring smiles for generations to come. This rocking horse is only available through the online auction – don’t miss out!

♥ October: The Gift of Warmth Donation Drive

Winter is coming! We won’t mention the “S Word”, but it sure is starting to get cold out there, and this Winter is predicted to be colder than average.

♥ September: Bare Essentials Donation Drive

Introducing our September Donation Drive!
We’re going Back to Basics this month, and collecting NEW socks and underwear for everyone in the family! Many of the families that Made by Momma support are in financial crisis. Others have escaped threatening living situations with only their clothes on their back. And still others, who are in medical adversity don’t have the time or resources to pick up the Bare Essentials.
