Our Why


Team Ohana is using our platform and community

  • To raise awareness and make an impact on these veterans PTSD and suicide statistics. We have identified an amazing North Florida organization that is making a discernible impact in these areas.
  • To raise awareness about Neurofibromatosis (NF) and help in the research of this  disease affecting 1 in 3000 births.

K9s for Warriors

20 Veterans a day commit suicide. Imagine if we could stop veteran suicide for just 1 day. $500,000 can do just that by paring 20 veterans with service dogs. Most of the dogs K9s for Warriors saves dogs from high kill shelters. These dogs help Veterans to stop the pain of PTSD and begin living life again.

     $500,000 eliminates Veteran suicide for one day. 


Children's Tumor Foundation

Neurofibromatosis (NF) affects 1 in every 2,000 births.  Anyone can be born with it and it affects everyone differently. NF can lead to blindness, deafness, bone abnormalities, disfigurement, learning challenges, disabling pain, or cancer. There is no cure yet.

The Children's Tumor Foundation's mission is to drive research, expand knowledge, and advance care for the NF community.
