About this Campaign

Paws for Purple Hearts (PPH) is the first program of its kind to offer therapeutic intervention for Veterans and active-duty military personnel by teaching those with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to train service dogs for their comrades with combat-related injuries. PPH is built upon the trusted and time-honored tradition of Veterans helping Veterans.

Founded in 2006 as a program of Bergin University of Canine Studies, the pilot PPH program at VA Palo Alto Health Care System, California, continues serving Veterans today. PPH initiated and trained staff to operate canine therapeutic programs at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (Maryland), the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (Maryland), and Fort Belvoir (Virginia). These programs have changed the lives of many Veterans struggling with PTSD. The PPH program has been requested at several other sites.  This is a 501C recognized charitable organization!

It takes approximately $15,000 to raise, train and place a service dog with a warrior.  I would like to raise enough to place 10 dogs over the next year.  Along with raising money through this campaign, I am also donating $1 from the sale each book I sell.  This is a 501C3 tax deductable charity so help a warrior and help reduce your tax burden!

Game Plan

I am writing a book from which I will donate $1 from the sale of each book.  I would like to challenge others to meet and match the donates I make from the proceedes of the book.
