From now until July 4, Dog Bless You, a community created and led by filmmaker Charles Annenberg Weingarten, will celebrate patriotism and stoke community involvement in America by providing up to 100 service dogs to returning soldiers who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Put together in partnership with IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America), along with a variety of veteran and service dog organizations, the Dog Bless USA challenge grant aims to spread awareness about the healing role dogs can play in the lives of those suffering from PTSD while giving people a chance to participate.
The initiative will provide people with an easy way to show support, and provide users with a steady stream of American dog-themed content ranging from personal stories gathered from soldiers to video footage of dogs around the country. Organizers aren’t asking for donations, but rather to show support by “liking” the Dog Bless You Page, uploading patriotic photos and videos, commenting and sharing personal dog-related stories.For every 5,000 “likes” the Dog Bless You Facebook community page receives, Explore.org will donate a service dog to a recent war veteran, up to 100 dogs or $500,000.
