BENEFITING: HERO DOGS INC
ORGANIZER: HERO DOGS INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2013
Hi everyone! The Hero Dog paragraph explains the basics of this campaign. The main Hero Dog picture you see if you go to the Hero Dog page is Teddy loving and being loved by a member of the military. These dogs change people's lives. Our veterans tell us they are able to go places they haven't been in years and they feel confident to try new things with their Hero Dog by their side. We're up against some HUGE charities in this challenge, but we feel like if we can get lots of people to respond, Newman's Own will see that lots of people want to support veterans through Hero Dogs and see fit to help us. Please give whatever you can. Any amount is a big help.
HERO DOGS is participating in Newman's Own Foundation's "Honoring Those Who Serve" initiative aimed at supporting United States military men, women, and families. HERO DOGS works with veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and provides exceptionally trained service dogs to meet the special needs of the veterans due to injuries or other disabilities. As citizens of a grateful nation, we have an obligation to try to restore the former independence and ability of those veterans who have sacrified so much for the good of others and to protect our freedom. Our fundraising challenge launches September 30 and runs through Veteran's Day, November 11. Thank you for your support.
