Pepsi is giving away $50,000 to various charities. I stumbled upon this charity and it sounds like a wonderful idea.

We connect veterans, wounded soldiers and service members with animal shelters in their community to find a new pet friend. Eligible pets are a dog or cat two years or older, a large dog (40+ pounds), or a special needs dog or cat - those most in need of a loving home and at greatest risk of being killed.

Veterans are eligible at any stage of their careers and from all armed forces.
Our charity offsets the veterans' costs of pet food and supplies, and provides access to ongoing discounted veterinary care.

Currently we operate in seven states. In July we launched a program with the Army AW2 Wounded Warrior Program to help wounded soldiers adjust to civilian life through adult pet adoption. Over the next year we'd like to expand to other armed forces' wounded care programs and strengthen outreach to national and regional veterans' organizations
