This loud and funky cowgirl-run company is using their influence and the success of their rock and roll products to give back to their fans in a very fulfilling way.
Lorinda Graham-Van Newkirk and Amy Moorhouse started Gypsy Soule, as seen at www.GypsySoule.com, in order to live out their own dreams, and they’re now succeeding at a rapid pace. Success didn’t happen overnight, though. Lorinda’s experience began years ago as a youth on her family’s ranch in California. She founded her first company at age 21, although her entrepreneurial spirit began at an even earlier age. Similar backgrounds brought Lorinda together with Amy. Amy learned the values of hard work and integrity growing up on the historic Pitchfork Ranch in Guthrie, Texas. Her innate sense of style and individuality inspired her to start a career in fashion design and marketing. After years of pursuing their dreams alone, the pair teamed up to launch Gypsy Soule in 2006, and they haven’t slowed down since.
Gypsy Soule and Gypsy Cowgirl are auctioning off a one-of-a-kind saddle from Cowboy Classic Saddlery. All the proceeds will go toward a scholarship that will be awarded to one special individual. The Gypsy Soule and Gypsy Cowgirl company hopes that by providing someone with this special opportunity, they will inspire others to pay it forward as well.

The saddle is custom designed with tattoo leatherwork, crystal embellishments, and a zebra stingray seat. Gypsy Soule will host a live auction via eBay open December 1st, 2009 and ending January 31, 2010. All proceeds will go to one applicant for college or trade school. Applicants apply on Gypsy Soule’s website. Applications must be postmarked by January 1st, 2010.
The goal of the scholarship is not only to encourage young kids to follow their dreams-it is also to help alleviate stress on a family or student who doesn’t have money for college.
