Good Dog! after her son Elliott received a service dog, Orbit, and she saw firsthand what a powerful change it made in his life.
This is Elliott and Orbit.
Laura explains, "Like so many families with ASD children, we have explored numerous
therapies and modalities in our attempt to find just the right
combination to unlock and unleash the beauty living within our son. It
is with great joy and pride that we now get to share our amazing
experience and – along with the help of our professional partners – the
expertise in autism companion dog ownership."
Good Dog! just launched THE Do Good! PROJECT. It's a fun way for kids to do something good for the environment and help provide a child with an autism service dog.
Dogs love to
chew on water bottles, but the plastic can be harmful to them. THE Do Good! PROJECT encourages kids to make water bottle covers out of unwanted clothes. The covers are simple and fun to make and don't require any sewing or gluing. And since they're made out of unwanted clothing, they're good for the environment too.
Good Dog! puts the covers on empty water bottles and gives the completed toys away at festivals and other events to people who make donations to their organization. As a result, dogs get a fun new and
safe toy and Good Dog! gets to bring more love and acceptance to the lives of children with
autism through autism
service dog companionship.
Oh, and dogs really love these toys!
This is an amazing service project for your kids, a scout group or a church youth group. The project is simple enough for young children and meaningful enough for older children and teens. The only project cost is for postage to send the completed covers to California. The best part is that kids learn about upcycling old clothing and also do something tangible to help a child with autism.
If you want to learn more about how to have your child or group participate in THE Do Good! PROJECT, please email Laura at email@example.com. And tell her I said hello!
