Cooper's Dog.

Meet Cooper Giron. He is my son Nathan's best friend. Cooper is a sweet, fun loving, active, four-year-old boy with severe allergies. Any exposure to any form of nuts or oranges will send him into anaphylactic shock, which can lead to death in a matter of minutes. To prevent future occurances and potential death, Cooper's family would like a specially trained service dog that will protect Cooper by detecting minute traces of nuts and oranges. A service dog will help Cooper attend school without the worry of accidentally ingesting foods he is allergic to.

In order for Cooper's family to obtain a special service dog, they first need to raise over $10,000 to cover the costs of the specialized training the dog will undergo. Anyone can make a contribution to Cooper's Dog Fund at any Chase Bank (formally known as Washington Mutual Bank) care of Cooper Giron. For more information about Cooper and his allergies, visit his blog at http://www.coopersdog.blogspot.com/.

To do my part, I designed a special set of note cards that I will sell in my Etsy shop and my Main shop and will donate proceeds towards the funding of Cooper's Dog. Cooper and his family are very dear to me. I want to do whatever I can to raise awareness about Coopers severe allergies as well as make it possible for him to have his special dog.


  1. Jen- I love you and I love the cards ♥. Thank you for being so special to us.

  2. Wow, just last week I posted a similar request on my blog for my dear friend's little boy. Although, their dog's funds are only $2000.

    What a great friend you are...I wish you all the best with your fundraising! Way to go :)

  3. This is such a great cause and you are such an amazing person for helping to raise awareness! I'm going to head to Chase tomorrow to help in donating but was wondering if there's anything else I can do to raise awareness?

  4. Cooper's blog has more information on the allergies. www.coopersdog.blogspot.com Thank you so much for you support!
