Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle Team Up for Charity

This Sunday at Dover, NASCAR will honor America's law enforcement officers, including those killed in the line of duty, with special pre-race ceremonies. So you could say it's good timing that Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle have just announced they're teaming up to personally help K9 law enforcement officers.

With the help of your $10 donation,, in collaboration with Stewart and Biffle, will raise funds to vest 192 K9 officers working in 32 states. And 25 percent of all cash raised will be raffled off to one lucky donor.

In July of 2008, the Tony Stewart Foundation vested all 30 Indiana State Police dogs, plus 10 additional dogs in three other states. Stewart’s philanthropic efforts called much attention toward Vest ‘N P.D.P.’s president and founder Susie Jean’s one-person shop and suggested a need for a national effort to raise funds to help these K9 officers. So far, 350 dogs in 38 states have been provided a custom-fit vest to protect them in the line of duty. These custom-made bullet-and-knife-resistant vests are made from the same Kevlar material used in human officer’s vests and are personally embroidered for each K9 officer.

Vests range from $1,200 to $1,500 each, which, according to Susie Jean, is “A small price to pay for our police dogs that protect their human partner as well as our communities.” Each $10 donation enters you to win the cash prize. The raffle ends June 14th! To learn more about Vest ‘N P.D.P. visit Susie Jean’s Web site at and click on buy tickets.
