'THE GIVING HORSE' ORNAMENT
GIVING/BABY'S FIRST CHRISTMAS
This little horse (or Rocky, as he's known around here) was the idea of my oldest child.
"Mom, can we make an ornament that helps kids at Christmas?" he asked one evening at the dinner table.
"YES." I answered, without hesitation. "Right after I grab this box of tissues."
From that moment on, he dreamed up every detail. The idea, the cause, and the design. It was, to date, one of my proudest moments as a Mom.
So everyone, meet "Rocky." He would be so honored to grace your tree. Because a portion of his proceed go straight to OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD: an initiative by Samaritan's Purse to provide Christmas gifts for children world-wide.
Buy one for yourself, or give one as a gift, or buy one in a child's honor. Because every child should have a gift at Christmas. And we at The Festive Farm Co. can't think of a better gift to GIVE.
Ornament Size: 2.5" x 4" and comes packaged with the "giving horse" story card inside a cloth gift bag.
Our ornaments are made from the most recycled material in the world, salvaged industrial steel, which we chose for its sustainability and unique patina. This also means that each sheet (batch) will differ in texture and sheen. So no two ornaments are alike.
Steel is also accustomed to rust (which on our finished ornaments, will have a dark, clouded look) so please store in the bag and avoid excess moisture. If the rust is unwelcome (some prefer the rustic look) then it can be easily cleaned with steel wool. If your ornaments are exposed to moisture during shipping, they may arrive this way.
