This week's Seven's Hero featured Personal Ponies LTD of Idaho. The non-profit is run by an amazing couple - Les and Donnis Mager. They started the local branch of this organization about 8 years ago. Personal Ponies actually gives miniature ponies to kids with mental and physical disabilities, or kids with illnesses. The kids take the ponies home, and they are a type of therapy for them. Just taking care of a pony, like brushing it and feeding it - has been proven to help kids who are struggling with special needs.
You can watch the 7's HERO here:

Les and Donnis have been funding this program on their own for years, and their pockets are running dry. This weekend there is a benefit concert and fundraiser for the organization. It's at the Meridian Speedway on Saturday. All the proceeds go to Personal Ponies LTD. Nashville country music singer Andy Griggs is performing!
The ponies will be there too! This is a great way to help out an organization that is helping so many kids in our area!
Les and Donnis would love to see you there...
