Zachary Bergman chose Freedom Guide Dogs for the Blind as his charity as part of his recent Bar Mitzvah in support of his uncle who recently received a Freedom guide dog. Thank you so much Zachary…….you raised over $1800 to support our mission!
Here are more ways to get involved with Freedom Guide Dogs!
Have a Birthday Benefit Party! We were recently contacted by a young girl (Laura), who raised $430 for Freedom Guide Dogs by asking her birthday party attendees to bring a monetary donation that represented what they might have spent on a gift for her. Thank you Laura for being so selfless and wanting to help others! Laura (pictured with Co-Founder and Director of Animal Husbandry, Sharon Loori and one of our yellow Lab pups) sure looks like she had a great birthday!
Become a Puppy Raiser! We are always looking for warm, caring people to foster a guide dog puppy. Go to our Puppy Raiser page for more details and information.
Schedule a presentation. Freedom is all about raising awareness for our cause. The more we spread the word about how guide dogs can help people, the more people we can actually help! So, if you are in a Rotary Club, Lions Club, church group, or school, give us a call, (315) 822-5132. We’ll come to you and we’ll even bring a guide dog for you to meet!
Have a friendraiser. A “friendraiser” is a different kind of presentation that Freedom offers. It is in a more intimate setting involving a small group of your friends who want to know more about what we do. It can be at your home, at a restaurant, coffee shop, etc. Food and drinks are usually served. Freedom makes a presentation, brings one of our clients to talk about his/her experience and then we answer questions and converse for the rest of the evening.
