JustWorld International Benefits From Show Jumping

JustWorld International, a not-for-profit, humanitarian organization founded to work as a catalyst for positive change in the developing world by helping underprivileged children, received a $125,000 donation at the recent CSI5* Monte Carlo Horse Show in Monaco by Chesapeake Petroleum, the Davis McCullough Foundation and the Global Champions Tour. The Monte Carlo show is the third leg of the Global Champions Tour of which JustWorld International is the official charity partner. During the presentation a video highlighting JustWorld's work in Cambodia was played to show the work being done at one of JustWorld's project sites.

"I was deeply moved by the extremely generous donation," said Jessica Newman, Executive Director of JustWorld International. "The Global Champions Tourís Jumping of Monaco provided a privileged opportunity for JustWorld International to gain international exposure and raise awareness about the issues affecting children in the developing world. I am enormously grateful to Victoria McCullough whose commitment and support of JustWorld International have made these opportunities possible."

An evening dedicated to raising awareness for JustWorld International was held at the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel at which all the top competitors were present including JustWorld Rider Ambassadors, Markus Fuchs and Gregoire Oberson of Switzerland, Philippe Rozier of France, and Jean-Claude van Geenberghe representing the Ukraine.

"JustWorld International received maximum exposure at this very exciting show," said Canada's Rhonda Rioux, a member of the JustWorld International Board of Directors. "I thought that the entire show was exquisite and also featured good sportsmanship and top quality horses. The fact that we got to promote JustWorld International in so many ways was excellent and Jan Tops, who is one of the horse show organizers in addition to being the man behind the Global Champions Tour, was committed to giving JustWorld as much exposure as possible. No one left the show unaware of the important work being done by JustWorld International."
