Friday’s with FAITH: Visit FAITH and Friends at Convention

Hello my FAITH-ful readers! I hope you’ve had a great week and are ready to see me and so many of my furry (and human) friends at the upcoming Market America International Convention.

I have almost finished packing for my trip to Greensboro. I ‘paws-itively’ can’t stop wagging my tail in anticipation of seeing my friends and getting spoiled with belly rubs! But that’s not all we will be up to at the maCares and faith Cares booths!

maCares has so many fun and new things you’ll want to be sure to get your paws on before they’re gone!

  • Sign up to Virtually Support maCares in the maCares Tribute 5K Run/2.5K Walk and score an event t-shirt while helping to support our service dog teams! If you already signed up as a Virtual Participant, stop by to pick up your event t-shirt (be prepared to show sign up confirmation).


  • Be sure to buy your raffle tickets for the maCares 50/50 Raffle for only $1 each or $5 gets you 6 tickets! The winner will receive half of the money collected while the other half goes to maCares.


  • Grab your Operation Uniform gear! Your choice of small wristlet, large wristlet, iPad/Tablet Cover, or Crossbody. Each item is hand-crafted and repurposed from retired combat military uniforms and includes a card about the veteran who wore the uniform.


  • Stock up on the new Helping Service Dogs Help Others t-shirts!


  • Dress up your favorite 4-legged friends with the new maCares and faith Cares dog bandanas!


  • Grab an maCares blanket to snuggle up with during convention, tailgating, or cuddling on the couch with your favorite furry friends!


  • Strike a pose and take a selfie with the maCares & faith Cares service dogs, after making a donation.


  • Pick up a few notecard sets of the faith Cares service dogs’, featuring yours truly and some of my canine friends!




Instead of chasing your tail, spin the maCares Prize Wheel for a chance to win entries into a drawing for tickets to the 2018 Market America World Conference or a basket filled with Market America products valued at over $600.00! Donate $1 per spin- there is no limit to the number of spins!


Isn’t it ‘paw-some’ that practically 100% of proceeds go to sponsoring emergency veterinary care for rescued animals and to ‘helping service dogs help others’ by improving the quality of life for veterans, children, and adults?!

Your purchase and donation helps support maCares and when you wear your shirt or share our posts, it helps spread awareness. Together we can make a difference in the lives of others!

And when it’s in between Convention & Conference times, be sure to check out all of the maCares & faith Cares service dog teams at Stay up-to-date on the events maCares holds to raise money to stay committed to ‘Helping Service Dogs Help Others’ by following us on Facebook.

Would you please consider making a tax deductible donation or purchasing from our Facebook Shop so we are able to help more service dog teams and rescued animals in need?

Check back soon for updates from yours truly! I sniff a ‘paw-some’ announcement coming soon!

Wags and licks,

My name is FAITH, and I'm a service dog to Sgt Terry White, PH IOF. You've probably seen me around the Market America office or at one of their events. I'm the pretty blonde with the big smile The wonderful maCares team is pretty fond of me, and they've decided to devote each Friday's blog post to my stories, pearls of wisdom, and "tails" of others giving back to their communities. We'll call it "Fridays with Faith". What you may not know about me is that I'm named after someone special. The flag that represents this great country flies high on the flag pole for my namesake's sacrifice. I am named in memory of U.S. Army Sergeant Faith Hinkley, who died on August 7, 2010 in Iskandariya, Iraq. Faith was part of the 502nd Military Intelligence Battalion, 201st Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. Through me, Faith Hinkley's legacy lives on, helping and healing another wounded soldier. maCares loves making a difference in the lives of veterans and animals. Please consider donating or getting involved with maCares so they can continue supporting veterans and dogs like Terry and me, and honoring heroes like Faith Hinkley.
