“We help someone who's lost everything they've ever owned, and provide a solution for their most immediate pressing need: Where are we going to sleep tonight?”
Woody never set foot in a Winnebago before he founded his non-profit, Emergency RV, which donates refurbished RVs to families who have lost their homes to wildfires and other natural disasters.
“People started reaching out and offering to help. A woman contacted me from San Francisco and she said, I have an RV if yo...u've got a family.”
Woody’s creative way of giving back inspired a Facebook App Group, where he stays in contact with families in need and those wishing to donate RVs. What started as a single RV that Woody and his daughter, Luna, drove to California for one family has become over 80 RVs donated in three years thanks to his active community of followers and new friends on the platform.
Woody and Luna are two of countless individuals giving back every day, but especially during Giving Season. Learn more about ways to give back this Season of Giving, visit about.fb.com/SeasonOfGiving
“I’m trying to help give these animals a second chance. I try to be one of the many voices for the voiceless.”
Eduard is a restaurateur and volunteer pilot with Pilots N Paws, a non-profit that flies transport rescue missions for dogs and cats in high-kill shelters to no-kill rescue organizations and foster families. Eduard’s passion for flying and love of animals makes this the perfect way to give back.
“One of my main goals with volunteering is to inspire more pilots to do... the same. When I see animals in photos in shelters and terrible situations I want to fly them to a better life.”
To date, Eduard has flown over sixty dogs to safety and new homes, finding his own creative way to give back. He uses Facebook App to share out his rescue stories, and WhatsApp to stay in contact with his community of fellow pilots always at-the-ready to rescue an animal in need of a second chance.
