)-- When the war ends and soldiers return home, many of their battles are far from over. That's the subject of the Click & Pledge Foundation's latest film, "Project Home: The Next Battle." On Sunday the UK Monthly Film Fest selected the film as this month's Best Documentary winner.
The film's release comes at a time of political discussions about using service dogs to treat post-traumatic stress disorder. Filmed in North Carolina and Virginia, "Project Home: The Next Battle" details the work of Canines for Service
, and how the nonprofit changed three veterans' and their service dogs' lives. The trailer is available at clickandpledge.org/project-home
"When I learned that 'The Next Battle' was selected, I felt extraordinarily grateful that this work had spoken and meant something to people that I have never even met," said Bethany Teague, the Storyteller for the Click & Pledge Foundation. "I hope that someone sees 'The Next Battle' and decides to stand beside Canines for Service with their finances, time or services to save a life. These would be the greatest honors 'The Next Battle' could receive."The Click & Pledge Foundation's mission
is simple: tell the untold stories. The foundation films documentaries for small and mid-size nonprofits to highlight their impact.
"We are overjoyed to help spread this story to audiences around the world," said Shirin Zohdi, the foundation's CEO. "This project was extremely near and dear to our hearts. We aim to help nonprofits reach and inspire a larger community through the power of visuals, by giving our partners the tools and resources to share their stories with the world."
