When Mike & Zeke did the walk-a-thons to Tombstone to raise money for our donkeys, Mike's wife Teresa thought Donkey Appreciation Day was October 12th. But we were told by a newspaper they couldn't verify that date. We tried to find information but came up empty handed.
Today I got an e-mail saying that the Donkey Sanctuary in England, the largest rescue in the world celebrates donkeys for a whole week. So maybe it isn't as important as Grilled Cheese Appreciation Day or some of the other important days our Congress Critters spend time designating to the general public.........but......donkey people know, & appreciate these wonderful creatures every day all year long.
