HorseGirlTV's Host Donates To Wounded Warriors Project

CAMP LEJEUNE, Nc September 26, 2008 Online personality and host of the Internet's leading horse show, HorseGirlTV®, has auctioned her Dehner (http://www.dehner.com) dress boots in support of the Wound Warrior Project. The WWP (http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org) was developed to honor and empower wounded warriors and to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women. Walkup discovered the WWP indirectly while researching a future webisode on how riding drastically benefits amputee recovery.

The auction transpired in true HorseGirlTV exclusive online style via the auction website, eBay. As the auction closed, congratulations were extended and communications began to flow it was discovered the winning bidder is of course a HorseGirlTV fan but is also serving in the US Army and currently deployed to Afghanistan.

"Tears started rolling down my eyes when I read this. She (Diane) was so excited to have won the boots and I couldn't think of a better person to win them in help of supporting the Wounded Warrior Project. Here I was wanting to give back to those making sacrifices for Americans and the winner is currently serving our country. It all came full circle in that moment," said Angelea.

With Diane's winning auction and several small anonymous pledges, Walkup hopes to have just under $500 to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project. Angelea beamed, "This was so much more than I'd expected and it wouldn't have been possible without Diane's 'above and beyond' pledge. I rode so many miles in those boots and I hope Diane gets just as much joy from them when she's back stateside and is able to enjoy everyday horse life again!"
