Smart Pup for Ben (21228)

We are raising funds for a “Best friend for Ben”. Ben is 13 years old and has autism.

64.03% Raised
$12,805.00 donated of $20,000.00 goal
58 Donors

Ben experiences high levels of anxiety, challenges with communication, sleep difficulties and runs when he is overwhelmed. Ben loves dogs and finds being with a dog soothing and calming. Being in the outside world can be overwhelming for Ben and a “best friend” will buffer him from this stress. A “best friend” will help Ben when he is distressed, scared and be a bridge in social interactions. An autism assistance dog will support Ben’s confidence, self-esteem and independence on his journey through adolescents to adulthood. From a young age Ben has asked for an assistance dog. Please support Ben’s wish and donate to help gain a “Best friend for Ben”. An autism assistance dog will improve Ben’s well-being and quality of life. Thank you from Ben and his family for your donation.

Every donation adds up to make a big difference! You are part of an incredible community of loyal supporters, who together help to make great things possible from what are often small beginnings. Thank you for your donation! All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Thank you for your suppawt.
