Can Do Canines
July 7, 2010

This Outstanding organization is my personal charity of choice and I support many. We have had the privilege to puppy raise and/or foster 18 dogs over the past 6 years. We also have helped out at graduation--always an emotional moving experience seeing the dogs with their clients. In addition, we have represented the organization at various events as booth representatives--telling their story. They use dogs of many breeds and include rescue dogs from shelters as part of the their exceptional program. Not all the dogs make it but they make every effort to have them be successful. They are very professional in their work that provide dogs trained helping individuals with disabilities, hearing loss or deafness, alerting to medical conditions, and serving autistic children and their families. I am proud to volunteer for this organization---Can Do Canines--home of Hearing and Service Dogs.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my life by seeing the power of the dog-person relationship. The dog acts as a bridge for people to approach individuals with disabilities. Service dogs really serve the client to live life to the fullest.

ANAPHYLAXIS AND FOOD ALLERGY ASSOCIATION OF MINNESOTA
June 30, 2010

I became involved with AFAA and immediately realized the importance to the health of individuals that face this life threatening issue every day. I am fortunate not to. AFAA somehow moves mountains with volunteers--starting with their volunteer unpaid Executive Director. The families that get involved to support this organization are amazing. I have been so impressed by their commitment to the cause while living with the issue every day 24-7. It's truly an honor to help.

I have learned much in the time I have been involved with AFAA. Trying to have an event or meeting that includes food is truly a monumental task for this group. AFAA is like the little engine that could. I think I can..I think I can. I can!
