Giving Tuesday falls on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving every year, and it’s a chance to donate to charities that make a difference in lives all over the world. This year, I thought I might point out some charities focused on Thoroughbred racing and beyond that give back to horses and the humans who love them. Below are some of my favorite causes.
