Every Day...Sharing Hope Around the World
Defence Community Dogs is a charity organization which trains rescued and rehomed dogs to become Assistance Dogs for Defence Force Veterans. The Defence Community Dog Program provides dogs trained to the Assistance Dog level for serving and former serving Australian Defence Force members who need support to deal with injuries and illnesses such as PTSD. Since its inception, the program has provided 45 dogs to veterans. They have proven to be of valuable assistance in rehabilitation programs.
Each dog is rescued from a pound or shelter. Before entering into program the dog must pass a temperament assessment. Each dog is then trained specifically to assist veterans coping with PTSD. Training takes about 9 months and 250 hours with a professional trainer. Each veteran is matched with a dog and then must undergo comprehensive handover training to bond with the dog and handle the dog. It costs over $10,000 to train each dog. The program is supported by donations alone.

George's Legacy of Charity Carries On...
- Caroline Simpson, 2019 Trustee Swan Lifeline
Swan Lifeline has had a charitable status for over 35 years and during that time George was a Patron. Today we continue to practice our mission of rescue, rehabilitation and release of swans in The Thames Valley and surrounding areas from our base near Windsor Castle with our ongoing remit that our charity exists in perpetuity and is greater than any one person or one thing. We believe this ethos is what has created our successful mission to care for swans in any circumstance for so many years.
We currently employ the most amazing young, dedicated and enthusiastic team, along with
wonderful help from volunteers and friends. With over 700 rescues a year they are always busy. I have been a Trustee of Swan Lifeline for five years, having worked for many years in the charity sector. When I received an email from The George Michael Legacy project offering help and support for our wonderful charity I was intrigued. I am in that particular age bracket where George and his music was terribly important to my life. I responded to that first email and was instantly enthralled by the wonderful response I received.
Our ongoing relationship with the amazing ladies at The George Michael Legacy Project is a joy. We so appreciate their friendship, input, visits, fundraising, understanding, and amazing enthusiasm. George would be so proud ladies. Share the amazing things customers are saying about your business.

First of I found wham all those years ago, then our darling George went solo. George literally saved my life with his music, he opened my eyes and heart that there is kind people out there. Then I started joining lots of George Michael group's and I found GMLP, every single person either in GMLP and the groups offered love and kindness.....family you can rely on. Every single person has impacted beautifully on my heart and consequently my life. And it all started with our legand George Michael. Thank you ALL. Love Ann xxxxx

Since joining the GMLP family, not only has it given me the opportunity to help others (animals and humans alike) in their time of need, but I have also gained a whole other family (and it doesn't hurt that this family shares my love of George!).

It is such a challenge for me to be brief in describing the impact that George Michael’s life and legacy has left on the world. First he brought us together with wonderful music that made us happy and dance, and gift all by itself. He lived the life he sang about, giving generously of his money and time often anonymously.
All of his fans know that we have been loved by George Michael. We know that that love and kindness are meant to be shared, and that is what the George Michael Legacy Project does. The incredible women who founded GMLP give so selflessly to continue supporting causes that meant so much to George, and really to all of us.
From the day I came across GMLP, and saw those “Guilty Feet” socks, to being a donor (and a raffle winner!), to the gracious notes of gratitude and support from Team GMLP, I feel like family. Team GMLP, you are succeeding in your mission. You are keeping George’s Legacy of Charity alive and well.
