As the holiday season approaches, finding the perfect gift for friends and family can become a chore. Most all of us have plenty of "stuff", this year give something meaningful, make a major difference in the life of a veteran suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. A gift of unconditional love, companionship, life, the gift of a companion dog. You will also be saving the life of a dog close to seeing their final days at an animal shelter for no reason other than they ended up in a crowded shelter.

Starting November 23rd and ending December 31st, Global Giving donors can make a donation to this project as a gift to friends and family? GlobalGiving will send the gift recipient an email, print-at-home, or physical tribute card.
This holiday season, they’re giving away $10,000 in bonus awards to the top 15 projects with the most donors who make donations as gifts.

Please let people know how much you care, give them a gift that will let them know they're making a difference.

"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catchers mitt on both hands.  You need to be able to throw something back."  - Maya Angelou

Happy Holidays!
