UPDATE: 3/25/15******************* MISSION SUCCESS!
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our fundraiser! 42 Patches were sold. It's not 300 like I hoped for but I know times are tough and I am extremely proud to make the donation today in representation of all of you amazing people. In light of the tragedy that just occured I want to get this money to The Raider Project ASAP. American Sheepdog will now be donating 100% of the 42 patch sales to the fundraiser. Let's get this money to those in need and rap this baby up quick!
Funds Raised from Patches: $630 (This is being donated today in a lump sum)
Godspeed to the 7 MARSOC Marines that died this past week:
American Sheepdog is 1!
I want to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the year. Getting my feet wet and learning the ropes has come with it's fair share of blunders, mistakes, and just downright failures. There have been times when I was so stressed out I would ask myself "why even bother?". But for every one of those days, there were many more good days. I am humbled and completely greatful to everyone that has stuck with us and had patience with us when we got in too deep.
Now that we survived our first year, it is time to get to work and help our brothers and sisters in need.
American Sheepdog: Overwatch Division will be comprised of a core group of Sheepdogs that are ready to step up to the plate and support our chosen charities through the purchase of a quarterly issued morale patch. We are our brothers keeper and will provide overwatch (or cover) for our brothers and sisters that have sacrified their freedom defending ours... and we need YOU! Get in on the ground floor and be part of something big!
