The holidays represent a great time to give back. And at Solid Gold, we have a soft spot for supporting the organizations that highlight the pets we love so much. This Giving Tuesday, we’re excited to let you know that our friends at Warrior Canine Connection are participating in Newman’s Own Foundation annual CrowdRise Holiday Challenge. This is a friendly fundraising campaign where qualified nonprofits compete to raise the most money with the top teams winning bonus matching funds.
Warrior Canine Connection has the goal to raise $50,000 by January 3, 2018. These funds will help them continue their mission of enlisting recovering Warriors in learning to train service dogs for their fellow Veterans. This powerful, purpose-driven organization truly understands the unique healing power of dogs and utilizes a Mission Based Trauma Recovery model that helps Veterans reconnect with life, their families, their communities and each other.
Plus, there’s an exciting twist this year: Newman’s Own Foundation is offering $500,000 in matching dollars, including $150,000 grand prize for the top nonprofit fundraiser!
We invite you to support Warrior Canine Connection in this important fundraising endeavor. It’s easy to participate: visit their CrowdRise Page and click “Donate.”
Want to strengthen your support? You can also participate as a fundraising team. This will allow you to set up your own campaign and reach out to your network of friends, family, coworkers, etc. From the CrowdRise page, simply click “Join the Team & Create Your Own Fundraiser.”
The bigger the impact you make, the closer Warrior Canine Connection can get to the $150,000 grand prize and the more Veterans they can impact through the power of dogs. Veterans and service dogs—you can’t go wrong with that!
