Many people ask me the question “What’s with the white dog featured on the website?” I would like to introduce you to Vino our American Eskimo whom we adopted from the Chicago Canine Rescue. Vino came into our lives and has struggled with many health issues in the 9 years he has been in our family.
With each passing day, Vino has overcome these challenges, and I am happy to report now lives a more balanced life. Above all else- he has brought unconditional love, joy, and companionship into our home.
It is his story that inspired our company to enthusiastically give 10% of all monthly proceeds to the following charities:
Active Heroes mission is to support U.S. military service members, veterans and their families through physical, educational, and emotional programs providing coping skills in an effort to eliminate suicide. Active Heroes’ vision is to eliminate military/veteran suicide
Camp Southern Ground will serve children from all backgrounds, races, and religions, with special emphasis on those with neuro-developmental disorders. In particular: Asperger syndrome, Tourette syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), ADD/ADHD, and dyslexia. Also children with social or emotional challenges, and from military families. Camp Southern Ground is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
Chicago Canine Rescue (CCRF) was founded in 2001 to help find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in our city. CCRF has saved the lives of over 3,000 dogs, cats, kittens (yes, we have started helping a few felines each year, too!) and puppies. CCRF is a 501 (c)(3) and registered charity in the State of Illinois.
Illinois Fire Fighter Peer Support’s (ILFFPS) mission is to recognize that all fire service and emergency medical service members are human beings who will be exposed to, and experience emotions. ILFFPS will provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment where members can engage in a healing conversation with a peer. ILFFPS also seeks to share the concept of peer support and the structure of our program with those that request. ILFFPS is a 501(c) (3) and registered charity in the State of Illinois.
