Every “Like” Brings a Soldier One-Step Closer to a Life-Altering Companion Dog
How would you like to help a returning soldier by doing something so simple as clicking "LIKE" on Facebook? Dog Bless You is making it possible for soldiers that have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to get a service dog to help ease their pain.
I am a huge advocate for dogs so I was super excited when I saw this cause. A companion or service dog can provide great benefits to people that suffer from a magnitude of disorders, illness and disabilities. Training for these dogs takes time and money. Dog Bless You has teamed up with Explore.org to provide companion dogs and service dogs to help our soldiers who suffer from PTSD. They started the dog drive during Memorial Day weekend. You can help spread the word by sharing this story with your Facebook friends and family. For every 5000 "Likes" they get on their Facebook page through Independence Day (July 4), Dog Bless You and Explore.org will provide a companion or service dog to a recent war veteran. They will donate up to 100 dogs during this dog-drive. As of June 1, they have enough "Likes" to provide four dogs! I get chill-bumps when I think of the good that can be done if we all pitch in. These soldiers deserve our time because they have given us so much.
Contributing to a soldier in need is very simple. Click "Like" and share the link. Dog Bless You!
This effort has been organized in partnership with IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America). The hope of the Dog Bless USA Grant, which is making it possible to get these dogs to the soldiers, is to spread the word and make people aware of the healing role dogs can play in the lives of those suffering from PTSD.
Every "Like" brings a soldier one step closer to a life-altering companion.
