I think the Wounded Warriors Project is an awesome in helping the veterans. I met someone from Walter Reed at my job where I have worked as a police civilian for 32 years now. She told me about the puppy training program. I love dogs and am great with them.

I believe Red Cross in an amazing organization that assists all persons of different backgrounds, ethnicities, and social classes. Red Cross aids all Americans in living healthier lives, especially places affected by tragedies.
