Hero Labradors Freedom Raffle

Sunday, January 12th, 2020

A little over a year ago we shared a Whiskey-5 for Hero Labradors. They are a Veteran fun non-profit that produces QUALITY, genetically sound, AKC registered Labradors with AKC Champion bloodlines. They select, raise, and breed our girls (and one boy) to produce very high quality pups. Then, they select service dog training programs worthy of our dogs–and we give these dogs to them, free of charge, with only their guarantee that they train them and donate them to either a disabled veteran, wounded warrior, or first responder (or their family members) who need them.

It’s a worthy cause and they are holding a raffle to find their efforts in 2020.

Giving Tuesday Donations to Support Military Children of the Fallen

Friday, November 29th, 2019

Dulles, VA – This holiday season, as individuals and organizations decide which nonprofit to donate to on Giving Tuesday, supporting Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots) will help more military children who lost a parent in the line of duty achieve their dreams through a college education. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on December 3rd and every day. Thanks to the generosity of those who support its mission, Fallen Patriots can do their part to make the world a better place by honoring those who have passed defending the United States of America.

Since 2002, Fallen Patriots has provided more than $33.8 million in total assistance, including college scholarships and educational counseling to over 1,600 bright and motivated military children of our country’s fallen heroes.  

Cassidy La Bouff is one of Fallen Patriots’ scholarship recipients and the daughter of U.S. Army Major Douglas A. La Bouff, who lost his life in Iraq in 2006 while serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom. With the help of Fallen Patriots, she is studying Journalism and Technical Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations at Colorado State University and is expected to graduate debt-free in 2021.

“Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation has been there for my family in times of struggle and in times of celebration,” says Cassidy. “There are no words to describe how thankful I am for the support Fallen Patriots has given me while I chase my dreams.”

There are approximately 20,000 children who have lost an active duty parent in the military over the last 35 years. The vision of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is to ensure that every such child receives all necessary college funding.


Fallen Patriots relies on the generous contributions from its donors. To help more military children of fallen patriots like Cassidy this Giving Tuesday, visit donate.fallenpatriots.org/campaign/givingtuesday/c257581.

Customized Polaris Machines Used to Raise Funds for Police, Fire and Military Charities; Voting Process Provides Consumers the Chance to Win the Polaris Machine of Their Choice

Minneapolis (Nov. 25, 2019) – Polaris Off Road, the world leader in powersports and off-road innovation, today announced United We Ride – a partnership and fundraising effort with the Diesel Brothers that honors our nation’s military, police and fire departments. The program is highlighted by a Diesel Brothers’ customized series of recently launched Polaris machines. Each machine has been custom-made to honor a specific branch of American “first responders” – the RZR PRO XP Ultimate for policemen and policewomen, the RANGER CREW XP 1000 for firemen and firewomen, and the GENERAL XP 4 1000 for members of the U.S. military. 

The program is powered by a national voting process where consumers vote for their favorite build, and voting totals determine the donation amount from Polaris to each of the program’s three charity beneficiaries – $25,000 to first place, $15,000 to second and $10,000 to third place. By casting their vote, consumers are automatically entered for the chance to win an all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 with Ride Command, RZR PRO XP Ultimate or a GENERAL XP 4 1000 DELUXE.

“We are forever grateful for the commitment and sacrifice made by members of our military and first responders, and we are proud to continue our 15-year tradition of providing vehicles for their duties and their well-deserved free time,” said Kyle Duea, vice president of Off-Road Vehicle Marketing, Polaris. “Partnering with the Diesel Brothers to customize our machines and drive awareness of these charities is merely one way we can show our appreciation, while honoring their daily efforts to protect us, our communities and our freedom.

The United We Ride program will be donating to the following charities:

·        Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) – Provides resources to support the families and co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty as they cope with the tragic loss and work to rebuild their lives.

·        The Gary Sinise First Responders Foundation – Provides critical funding for emergency relief, training, and essential equipment to ensure our heroic firefighters have the resources they need.

·        Your Grateful Nation – Provides support, guidance and resources to transition special operations veterans into their next successful career.

“The whole Diesel Brothers’ family has a deep respect for those who selflessly protect, serve and care for this great country,” said Dave Sparks, Diesel Sellerz. “That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to work with our most valued industry partners at Polaris to build the unique UTVs intended to honor the hard-working men and women of the U.S. military, law enforcement, and first responders. This is just a small token of our gratitude for their hard work and dedicated service.”

Customers are encouraged to vote for United We Ride at Polaris.com/UnitedWeRide until December 22. For the last 15 years, Polaris’ Commercial, Government and Defense team has proudly partnered with military and public safety organizations across the country to design and upfit Polaris vehicles for professional use. More information on Polaris’ military vehicles, turn-key law enforcement and fire-fighting vehicles, and grant assistance programs can be found on Polaris.com/Gov.
