CableOrganizer.com and Service Dogs 4 Service Men Partner to Benefit South Florida Veterans Struggling With PTSD-Related Emotional and Physical Issues

Throughout May 2014 www.CableOrganizer.com Customers Can Opt-In to Have the Company Donate $1 per Order on Their Behalf to Help Facilitate the Matching of a Veteran, Including Those Coping With PTSD, With a Service Dog for Companionship, Mobility Assistance and Other Needed Aid

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - May 7, 2014) - The industry-leading, award-winning eTailer and electrical distributor CableOrganizer.com today announced it has partnered with the organization Service Dogs 4 Servicemen (SD4SM) to help South Florida veterans. Through the SD4SM's "Hero Project," veterans are paired with highly-trained retired racing greyhounds who serve as service dogs for those coping with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and others in need of companionship, mobility assistance or other emotional and physical aid. Notably, each dog is specifically tailored to meet the individualized needs of its recipient, fostering a relative return to normalcy for the soldiers who put their physical and psychological well-being at risk to serve our country and maintain the freedoms that are all too often taken for granted.

In an effort to raise awareness of the issues American veterans face and let individuals know how easily they can help, during the entire month of May every order placed at www.CableOrganizer.com will include an "opt-in" feature that authorizes CableOrganizer to donate one dollar to SD4SM at zero cost to the consumer. While this initiative is anticipated to provide notable financial support to the organization, the main goal is to enlighten consumers about SD4SM and other worthy initiatives doing their part to help veterans persevere through daily struggles, including Rebuilding Together Broward County or the Stand Down House.

"People often talk about 'supporting our troops' but fail to realize that such support needs to continue after these men and women have returned home and are attempting to re-adjust to civilian life," said Juan Ribero, CableOrganizer.com's Vice President of Marketing. "What is normal for most of us is often no longer normal for them, and when you've grown accustomed to living under constant threat of attack, something as simple as going to the grocery store or walking down the street suddenly becomes much more difficult. These service dogs will provide much needed companionship and assistance to make daily tasks easier."

"As you might imagine, highly trained service animals do not come easily or cheap," Ribero continues. "SD4SM's 'Hero Project' offers these greyhounds at zero cost to the veterans, and relies on donations and fundraising to cover the substantial expenses. In our own show of gratitude to the men and women who serve our country, we're proud to partner with SD4SM to raise money and awareness for this extraordinary cause."
