This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, SDWR is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. We ask you to join us in the mission to provide those with invisible disabilities like Autism, Diabetes, PTSD, and Seizure Disorders a chance at newfound hope through service dogs.
Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this November 29.
In 2016, SDWR has experienced amazing growth through the generosity of people like you. In addition to 500, working dogs already placed, there are 400 families enrolled in our program awaiting their dog delivery. What makes us so unique, is that none of the enrolled ?families ever travel in order to receive their service dog or participate in team training. SDWR realizes that individuals coping with a disability often have difficulty traveling. In order for us to continue providing this essential service and attending awareness events like AutismSpeaks and American Diabetes Association walks, we need a new travel trailer.
This season, SDWR must raise $35,000 to purchase a fully heated and air conditioned trailer with a wash station that will provide safe, comfortable travel conditions for the amazing service dogs we deliver. Please consider making a donation this holiday season to give the gift of hope to so many families and individuals around the United States.
