One Down Dog's Regular or Independent Donations:

Each of these hold a place in our hearts from Miry a student who "accidentally founded" a non profit to help refugee families settle in the USA to JFLA who is responsible for the grant that helped us start One Down Dog years ago. We recommend picking any org that means something to you and donate a little each month!
