"Rusty Says"

First, there was Smokey the Bear. Then, there was McGruff the crime dog. 

Now, there is "Rusty Says"!

"Rusty Says" is a new series of public service announcements that will soon be airing on

ABC, CBS and NBC television stations across the county, featuring our very own "Rusty"! 


In these special :30 second messages, Rusty encourages kids to not play with guns,

to not bully other kids, and much more!

Your tax deductible donation, will help us with television air time expenses.

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Hang On To The Dream Foundation has been donating brand new iPads and laptops for kids to keep so that they can continue their learning at home while schools continue to revert to at-home learning.  We are also making sure that kids have internet connectivity in their homes by covering their internet/WiFi expenses, etc.

Thank you in advance for your help!
