Even though the global pandemic has brought a lot of uncertainties worldwide, it also brought countless stories of hope coming from the people who are battling everyday challenges. But these beautiful stories don’t only come from people alone, because animals, especially dogs, are also doing their part to bring hope to the world. One such story comes from a two-year-old Rottweiler named Loki.
It all started when Loki’s mother, Caroline Benzel, noticed that staff from the hospital where her grandfather was currently staying were having problems with their masks. She noticed that their masks cause rashes and irritation on their skin, so she decided to bring some help. At that time, she was already doing ‘virtual visits’ to the hospital since visitors were all pulled out when the pandemic broke out.
Caroline and her adorable Rottweiler, which is also a therapy dog, teamed up to help the frontliners in the best way they can. And that’s where the Healing Hero kits were born. These kits are filled with all the essentials that help protect medical frontliners from getting irritations and rashes from the protective equipment they are wearing.
The lack of money to provide these necessities was not considered a big problem by the duo as they raised funds for this project through donations. And because of their noble mission to help the medical frontliners, a lot of people willingly donated to push their project forward. Thankfully, because of the people’s collective effort, Caroline and Loki’s dream became a reality.
In her Facebook post, Caroline proudly announced that she and Loki have already raised 1,400 kits ready to be distributed for the medical frontliners. Each kit contains lotion, Goldbond, tea, and chapstick to bring relief to the frontliners who are doing heroic tasks during the pandemic.
These kits were gladly distributed by Loki and brought broad smiles on the frontliners. But it was not only the items that brought smiles to them but also the love and hope that came from Caroline, Loki, and all the people who made this project possible.
