The “Double Dog” Jeep Project

BuildStatus_800x480

Sometimes…

You need to get away,

to find yourself.

We work with young men and women ranging in age from 13 to 30 who are often overwhelmed with the pain and stresses in their daily life.

We have found that getting them out of their normal environment and into nature greatly accelerates their healing and growth.

The two primary missions of the Double Dog vehicle are:

  1. Transport the folks we work with to remote areas to help them find clarity through recreation and camaraderie.
  2. Turn heads on the road to our cause, America’s Children of Fallen Heroes.

ACoFH_Logo_750x400We are a non-profit, non-political, non-denominational organization focused on serving the needs of the children who have lost a parent in the US Military, Fire Department, and Law Enforcement.

In October 2000, we began working with the US Military as Children of Fallen Soldiers.

In 2012, we began re-branding to America’s Children of Fallen Heroes so we could include fallen firefighters and law enforcement within our umbrella of services.

What We Do

Expression of Appreciation (EOA) Collection

View written EOAs here:

https://goo.gl/tLXs4M & filmed EOAs here:

https://www.youtube.com/user/ChildofFallenSoldier

At events we collect EOAs. An EOA is a short written or filmed message of encouragement from you to a child of a fallen hero. It’s purpose is to let them know:

  1. They haven’t been forgotten.
  2. Someone cares enough to take a moment for them.
  3. There is hope for their future.

What happens after an EOA is written or filmed?

  • Once approved, your message of encouragement is sent to all of the families.
  • Selected EOAs will be used as examples for others. https://goo.gl/tLXs4M
  • All approved EOAs will be included in the book, On Behalf of a Grateful Nation,
  • and will be included in the memorial for America’s Children of Fallen Heroes.

The Dream Development Project (DDP)

We make a 10 year commitment to the young men and women accepted into the DDP to empower them to clarify, build, live, and create a legacy from their dreams.

These are the young ones living with the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms and safety, and we believe they deserve the very best America has to offer.

Thank You

To Our Many Supporters

There isn’t room to adequately express our appreciation for all of our supporters… not enough paper :). But know this, our work wouldn’t be possible without them.

The “Double Dog” Jeep Team Leader

We’re Here to Help You Succeed!

My name is Joe and I am the “Double Dog” Jeep Team Lead for America’s Children of Fallen Heroes. Our organization is aimed at caring for children who have lost a parent in the line of duty, including firefighters, law enforcement and of course military. I myself was drawn to this organization because I am a Marine veteran and have two small children.

Thank you for your interest in joining our family of supporters. Our job is to make sure you activate all your benefits and recognize how very much you are appreciated. We look forward to getting to know you and your organization better.

Genesis Off Road

Genesis Off Road

Sponsorship Rank = Lieutenant
Special Support = Parts Sponsor

We’re Jeep guys. We understand Jeep guys and Jeep parts. We’re innovators, never satisfied with ‘good enough’, and always looking for ways to improve the off roading experience. In mid-2012, while working on a custom Jeep Wrangler project with a ton of electrical upgrades, we discovered a major gap in the market for a high quality dual battery kit. There were some companies that would sell a metal bracket to hold two batteries, and other companies that would sell an isolator, a bag of ring terminals, and a spool of wire expecting the buyer to figure out how to mount everything and hook it all up. After a lot of research, we came up with the most complete and easiest to install dual battery kit on the market, and launched the first version at Jeep Beach in Daytona, FL in April 2013. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Since then, our tray has been refined several times to pack the most features we could into one simple package. Today’s version is the only kit on the market to include everything you need to install dual batteries in a Jeep JK, including power and ground bus bars to easily connect your aftermarket electronics, and it comes completely pre-wired out of the box. Yes, we realize that there are other ways to get two batteries into a Jeep for fewer dollars up front, and that’s fine. The market is crowded with ‘low-cost’ options, but none can match the quality that we put into every single component. Our kit is targeted to the Jeep owner who wants, needs, and appreciates the very best of everything. The kind of Jeep owner who obsesses over the details, just like us. The kind of Jeep owner that depends on their vehicle to get them to their destination, and needs the peace of mind that they’ll make it home as well.
