Charities & Organizations

Going to Boston Market next week?

Next week (September 30th  though October 6th, 2013) south Florida Boston Market restaurants will be having a fundraiser for Service Dogs 4 Servicemen.  15% of your order will go to this great organization that adopts retired racing greyhounds and trains them to be service dogs for veterans.

There is a flier for this fundraiser.  You should bring the first page in with you which shows the actual fundraiser and the second page is a full list of the south Florida Boston Market locations.

You can keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates with this fundraiser as well as dates, times, and location where one of their trainers will be with one of the dogs.

Help Veterans get a service dog!

On August 21, 2013 California Pizza Kitchen in Pembroke Pines (11401 Pines Blvd #100, Pembroke Pines) will be hosting a FUNdraiser event for Service Dogs 4 ServiceMen. When you bring in this brochure 20% of your tab will be donated to the organization.  So stop by any time during the day and order some food and help a great cause!

Help an online friend get a service dog.

An online friend of mine has been approved for a service dog. She has Fibromyalgia and the dog will be used for retrieval and “hot water bottle” relief. To help pay for the dog the charity she is getting the dog though has set up a page for donations:

Other than being an online friend I have no affiliation with this person but being married to someone who uses a service dog I do understand the benefits of one. If you can, feel free to donate to her cause, even a few dollars can help her get to the goal.
