Celebrations for PAWSitive Impact

Create a page

There is so much to celebrate at Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB). For more than 80 years, GDB has been helping empower individuals who are blind or visually impaired to live the life they want to live.

GDB meets people where they are, providing programs and services that best align with their needs and desires - whether it’s receiving a guide dog, a K9 Buddy, or Orientation and Mobility instruction.

Celebrating a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or a GDB graduation is an opportunity to ask friends and family to make a donation in lieu of gifts and help ensure that all GDB clients receive everything they need at no cost. Thank you for sharing a special occasion in your life and for fundraising on behalf of GDB’s life-changing mission. It all begins with you!
