Community Raises Money To Buy Bullet Proof Vests For Police Dogs

Officers wear bullet proof vests, so why not their K-9 partners? After a police dog from Canton Police Department in Ohio lost its life during a recent burglary, the community stepped in. A pet blogger, Beth Philley, heard the extremely sad news about K-9 Jethro and wanted to do something to honor the brave dog.

Beth created a GoFundMe page to raise money for new bulletproof vests for the department's police dogs. People fell in love with K-9 Jethro and quickly donated over $30,600 in just three days. Losing one of its own is devastating, but the public's support has helped them through this rough time.

"We are blown away by all the support," Officer Eric Stanbro, head K9 trainer told The Huffington Post. "The police department didn't even set any of the funds up. Regular folks did that and we have been floored by the outpouring of donations."

With the community's help, the department's seven dogs will receive new bulletproof vests. A funeral will be held for Jethro on Thursday, honoring a dog that made his department proud.

"We believe, and our chief has even said that he believes that Jethro saved officers that day,” Stanbro told Fox 8.

Hungry Harvest is Rescuing Ugly Produce To Feed The Needy

** OGTV encourages everyone to get involved in National Eat Your Vegetables Day, even if the produce doesn't look perfect. After all it's all in the flavor! **

Every year 20 billion pounds of produce goes to waste, never leaving the farm, based on appearance. Too big, too small, misshapen, whatever the reason, healthy, edible food is left to rot while millions go hungry. Hungry Harvest is an organization that aims to reduce food waste while getting quality produce to those in need.

The CEO and Co-Founder Evan Lutz started this company while still in college. He had the brainstorm that he could solve two problems at once by using one to solve the other. "I started a project that used one farmer's surplus produce to sell to college students at the University of Maryland," he explained. "I set up a farm stand in the basement of a dorm. After 6 months, 500 customers were coming to our stand every week. That's when I knew this idea could really take off."

After seeing her godson spend some time in the hospital, surrounded by kids who were having their birthdays without the laughter and joy that comes with their special day, Stefanie Grimm had an idea. Even if you are hospitalized, there is no reason that you shouldn't have a birthday party! This generous thought was the seed that grew into The Confetti Foundation.
