Here at Good Dogg Beverage, we support change, education, and giving back to the rare disease community. That’s why we’ve partnered with KIF1A.ORG, an organization that supports families impacted with KIF1A Associated Neurological Disorder (KAND) by supporting research and providing immediate assistance.
Good Dogg Beverage is honored to be a part of this global awareness campaign for KAND. KAND is a severe and rare neurodegenerative disorder that affects hundreds of families. Having direct connections to families with children who have KIF1A, this partnership for Good Dogg is personal and we want to make a difference both in the future and in the here and now.
In February 2022, Good Dogg collaborated with KIF1A.org by sending care packages to the homes of 70 patients affected by KAND in honor of Rare Disease Day.
The unique part about this package was the stuffed dog “Teddy,” named after the inspirational pup whose story forms the heart of the Good Dogg brand. Sending these boxes was a little gesture meant to bring smiles and excitement, but also mark Good Dogg’s commitment to supporting and advocating for families of children with rare diseases.
Good Dogg also aims to provide networking opportunities to the families of KIF1A Superheroes to quality educational resources on service dogs through its partnerships with Canines for Disabled Kids and Diggity Dogs Service Dogs.
Good Dogg Beverage is dedicated to working with consumers and the beverage industry as a whole to make a positive difference for families dealing with rare diseases, a group that is sometimes overlooked and underserved.
