4-Hour Team Building Activity


Giving Level

$5,000 can pay for a wheelchair lift to be installed in a van, giving a person access to transportation and freedoms they never had before.

When you donate, you will receive a once in a lifetime opportunity to receive a private, 4-hour team building activity as part of Romans Ranch, a horse-therapy business owned by Danielle Andersen-Jeppesen.

This is a chance for your workplace or family to learn some highly effective connecting and relationship building principles all while having light-hearted fun with Danielle’s Lilliputian League (miniature horses!). These activities develop your intra- and inter-personal communication skills, which are integral parts of forming safe and resilient relationships. You will be having fun and making positive memories all while learning valuable life skills!

About the Artist

Danielle Andersen-Jeppesen

Jeppesen Leather

Danielle began working with leather as a youngster fixing or repairing horse tack. Out of necessity, she repaired her children’s tack during 4-H practice and was asked to repair multiple friends’ equipment. It morphed into building new tack, belts, and now anything people want. As Danielle sought employment in her educational field (healthcare administrator) she continued to develop skills and techniques in leather crafting. In 2020, Danielle expanded her services beyond leather making to include horse therapy. Her business, Romans Ranch, is where you go to build communication and connection. Whether you are a company trying to find innovative ways to help your team learn how to communicate more effectively, or you are a veteran seeking a way to connect again to civilian life, Romans Ranch can be a part of your journey.

"I am a visually impaired individual that has found the challenges and financial obstacles faced by the disabled population to be manageable with the help and guidance of Able Up Iowa. Financial stability and security is harder for those who have greater expenses when accommodating their disability, lower incomes due to multifactorial challenges, and additional challenges in seeking resources. Able Up Iowa reduces obstacles to financing, guidance for budgeting, and support to counter the fatigue when seeking assistance and the often daunting task of the application process." - Danielle Andersen-Jeppesen

Please note we have recently changed our name from Iowa Able Foundation to Able Up Iowa.
