From Memorial Day through July 4th Explore.org, The Annenberg Foundation and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America are joining forces as part of a campaign called "Dog Bless You," which pairs veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with service dogs to help them on the road to recovery.
"This campaign is to channel the energy of the dog community into the gift of unconditional love and healing that only a canine can provide. We want to raise awareness about the amazing role dogs can play in the lives of veterans and people who suffer from emotional and psychological damage- while giving everyone a chance to participate through a zero-cost contribution,” said Charles Annenberg Weingarten, founder of Explore.org and Dog Bless You.
And here's how to help: simply head over to their Facebook page and "Like" it to do your part. For every 5,000 likes, Explore.org will donate a service dog to a recently returned veteran (up to 100 dogs). How awesome is that?
So easy, and such an amazing initiative-- there's really no excuse not to send your support! (And here's the link again!: http://www.facebook.com/exploredogs)
