Pure Thoughts Horse Rescue

Western Palm Beach County is home to a large Equestrian Community. Each Winter people come from all over the world to join the best sportsmen and women, showing off their horses and talent.

The horse community is dedicated to these beloved animals, and it cares greatly about the welfare of their four-legged friends. Much compassion here revolves around horse safety and well being.

“Pure Thoughts Horse and Foal rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of innocent horses, yearlings and foals that are destined for slaughter. Over Fifty Thousands of these beautiful Equines went to slaughter last year for human consumption. These animals suffered an excruciating and inhumane death. Pure Thoughts has saved and placed over 350 horses, yearlings and foals since it’s beginning and intends to double those numbers in the coming year.”

Vetsville “Cease Fire House”

How the Charities will benefit:

The Love & Peace Project is proud to present various programs to assist local charities.

Some of these activities involve volunteering, food drives, caring for shelter pets, donating money, or other ways to help charitable organizations and their causes.

We encourage people to volunteer or donate and to inspire others. Volunteers or Donors may earn Kindness Reward points towards freebies from our Reward Store.

Sponsorship Money

Each time you dedicate beads on the Neverending Necklace, you’re actually helping support charities in the process: the more beads you dedicate, the more money they’ll receive. It’s entirely FREE to dedicate beads.

How does it work?

Those dedicated beads are first strung and then mounted on individual sections, called “panels”. The panels can be sponsored for a fee, which we forward to any of the charities above.

Our goal is to help smaller charities that don’t receive the same support as a large organization would. These small charities simply don’t have a big marketing budget, so they may not be as well known. But they do a lot of good on a local level, where it matters most and benefits their cause directly.

Note: as the Love & Peace Society grows, we will add more charities from other geographical areas to this list. Those will be the recipients of local Love & Peace community activities outside of Palm Beach County. They will be suggested by local chapters of the Love & Peace Society.
