Go ahead and choose which organization will receive $1,000 from the Go Erin Go! Fund — Voting ends Sept. 25!

Return To Freedom: This non-profit wild horse sanctuary founded in 1997 protects the freedom and natural lifestyle of America’s free ranging wild horses. The organization’s goal is to preserving the freedom, diversity and habitat of America’s wild horses through sanctuary, education and conservation, while enriching the human spirit through direct experience with the natural world.

Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch: A not-for-profit, a multi-service organization providing mental health programs and services to emotionally disturbed youth and their families. The psychiatric residential treatment center is located on a 400-acre campus in beautiful Billings, Montana and includes a clinic with a full medical staff, a recreation center and accredited school, Yellowstone Academy.  These funds will go to support the extraordinary work of the YBGR project based in Livingston, MT.

Save the Redwoods League: A 90-year-old nonprofit organization that is dedicated to saving ancient redwood forests and redwood ecosystems. The organization protects redwoods by purchasing forests and the landscapes, restoring logged forests by removing roads, creating wildlife habitat and removing small trees, as well as inspiring current and future generations to save redwoods through education.
