Non-profit Helps Wounded Vets Get Their Lives Back - Catch A Lift (CAL)10m59s

Non-profit Helps Wounded Vets Get Their Lives Back - Catch A Lift (CAL)

The Catch a Lift Fund (CAL) inspires veterans to get up and get moving again. CAL was founded in 2010, with the sole purpose of helping post-9/11 combat wounded veterans all over the U.S. recover both physically and mentally. Uniquely, CAL's service to veterans centers on physical fitness: the program pays for gym memberships, in-home gym equipment, and personalized fitness, as well as nutrition plans and a peer-support network. Do you ever wonder how veterans cope with life once they come home from combat? After being trained to be on high-alert 24/7, what's it like for them to integrate back into everyday society? It raises the question: our military members protect us, but who protects them? Over the years HooplaHa has done many stories on organizations that help veterans when they return home, but the personal origin story and mission of the Catch A Lift Fund is among the most moving we've ever covered. Catch A Lift vets are seeing and feeling results, including: * dramatic weight loss, * reduction in medications, * improved sleep patterns, and * strengthened relationships with family and friends. To some people, working out the body might not seem equivalent to a therapy session focused on the mind, but CAL participants make clear how powerful its impact can be. "For us, it's healing," says Sarah Rudder, Marine Corps Veteran, mother, and amputee. "They were able to provide me with the best therapy I've had in my life."

Tracy's Rescue Mission to Save Dogs in South Texas Shelters (A Dog's Journey Home)20m00s

Tracy's Rescue Mission to Save Dogs in South Texas Shelters (A Dog's Journey Home)

In this series, A Dog's Journey Home, we'll meet the incomparable Tracy Whyatt who in 2011, decided to follow a passion of hers and help alleviate a huge problem. A lifelong dog lover, Tracy was horrified to discover that San Antonio had holding tanks for dogs to be euthanized. She took matters into her own hands and now Tracy and her husband Scott have committed themselves to these abandoned dogs by rehabilitating them and hand delivering them to their forever families. That’s how their non-profit, TracysDogs, was born. In this episode, we will see for the first time, exactly what it is like at these Brownsville Texas Animal Shelters, over-run with too many dogs, many injured and unhealthy... and without homes.. and facing sure euthanization. We will follow Tracy and Veterinarian Dr. Lori Curd through the painful process of choosing which dogs she will take back to her Rescue to rehabilitate for adoption...and which dogs...knowing that most she does not take, will be put down... she must leave behind. On this trip, she will pick 30-40 dogs to bring back to her rescue. It's an emotional struggle for Tracy during these shelter visits. “I have to take in what people want to adopt. It’s a very hard day for me because if it were up to me, every single dog you see in this shelter would be in the back of my of my van whether it was a Pit Bull, a Chihuahua, a German Shepherd, a Shar-Pei... I love all of them.” It’s a constant battle between her head (which dogs she can get adopted).... and her heart! But at the end of Tracy’s day, there is joy in what she does. “When I pick that dog up from that kennel and put him in the back of that van, I know that that dog is headed for a better life, a happy life, a life they probably would not have if we didn’t come down here and do this work.” To learn more about the dedicated TracysDogs team that tirelessly works to save the lives of thousands of dogs and find them proper homes across the country, visit them at: https://www.tracysdogs.com/ Welcome to OnlyGood.tv!

Special Needs Baby Spurs Clothing Line -  Littlest Warrior Apparel4m33s

Special Needs Baby Spurs Clothing Line - Littlest Warrior Apparel

Eric and Michelle Sullivan found out at the 20 week ultrasound that their baby had many of the signs of Down Syndrome. A few weeks later the blood test confirmed it. Despite several serious medical issues, their son Eli pulled through and began growing and putting on weight. Michelle, a photographer with a creative streak, started looking around for fun clothes for him, including those with awareness messages, but didn't find a style she liked. This was the seed that led her to create "Littlest Warrior Apparel." As Eli became more social, Michelle noticed how attentive she needed to be in order to fight for Eli to be included in activities with other kids. She quickly became an advocate for parents with special needs kids and realized that she could leverage the influence of her company to help all kinds of families with kids with different abilities. "In the beginning, when I started Littlest Warrior, I knew I wanted to be giving back in some sort of way". Starting from this core idea, Michele established a company policy that donates 10% of their profits each month to a family in need or a supporting foundation. A family with special needs kids have high expenses and this generous donation is making a difference in their lives. Her wish that every kid with special needs be loved and included is embodied in the company tagline – “Spreading joy, awareness and inclusion.” Through her love and generosity, this wish is coming true not only for families she supports, but for her own family as well. Eric and Michelle are also growing and thriving as parents of their special boy. "Eli, he's the cutest kid in the world. He is the light of our life and a joy to be around. We can't imagine life without him." To learn more, visit them at: https://www.littlestwarrior.com/ Welcome to OnlyGood.tv! (Formerly HooplaHa - Only Good News) - It’s a Positivity Movement.
