Join PPH’s #OperationPawsitivity To Support Our Warriors In Need
Giving Tuesday is May 5, 2020
Paws for Purple Hearts needs your help to spread some “pawsitivity” and continue our mission to improve the lives of our nation’s brave Warriors.
As an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, we will be participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020. This day marks an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity–to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and help others heal.
That’s why we’ve created #OperationPawsitivity – dedicated to uplifting our Warriors and remaining connected through kindness, even without physical proximity.
What is #OperationPawsitivity?
Like many other services, our unique Canine-Assisted Warrior Therapy sessions have been put on hold for the time being, but we are actively finding ways to stay connected to those who may be feeling isolated during this time.
#OperationPawsitivity is an opportunity to show our Warriors that we are still here, thinking of them every day even though we can’t be with them in person. With your help, we will spend the entire day, and many days afterwards, spreading messages of thanks, encouragement and positivity to our Veterans and Service Members – our Warriors – in need.
“Even as many face financial uncertainty, generosity is not about size. Every act of kindness is not only a beacon of hope, it’s a critical act of civic and social solidarity.” – GivingTuesday CEO, Asha Curran
How can you take part in #OperationPawsitivity?
Just like our Warriors still need us, we still need you! Your participation will help reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation in the military, veteran and general community.
Here’s two ways to participate:
- Just post a photo, video, or written message of encouragement on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube and be sure to tag us @pawsforpurplehearts and use #OperationPawsitivity when you post! Click here to download a printable written message stationery if you wish.
- Type your message in the handy form below!
We will then share it for all of our Warriors and the world to see on our social media channels and on this webpage in the section below.
We understand that times are tough, so we ask you to join us in sending a message of encouragement and give some “pawsitivity” to our Warriors.
With your help, we believe #OperationPawsitivity will show our nation’s Warriors that we are still supporting them and that we cannot wait to see them again soon.
