Today is a special day to honor our nation's veterans. We thank those who have served to make our nation a stronger place to live, work and play. Take a moment to show your gratitude and/or give back to an organization that supports veterans and active servicemen.

Merritt+Grace was honored to organize a fundraiser to support Denver-based Freedom Service Dogs last April. The organization is a nonprofit enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by rescuing dogs and custom training them for individual client needs. Their Operation Freedom Program was developed to help returning war veterans and military personnel transition from active duty and combat to civilian life. Servicemembers and veterans are placed with highly specialized service dogs that help them find a new level of independence in their post-combat life.

Help spread the word, make a donation and/or volunteer with a dog. Check out their site to learn more about how you can get involved!
