When Annenberg heir Charlie adopted golden retriever, his approach to philanthropy changed; thanks to Lucky, he started his own guide dog nonprofit.
"Annenberg, grandson of the late publisher, ambassador and philanthropist Walter H. Annenberg, is a vice president and director of the grant-making Annenberg Foundation. He gives away up to $8 million a year. In just three years, he has donated 170 guide dogs, search-and-rescue dogs or service dogs for veterans. The majority of the dogs funded by Annenberg have been for veterans. Because there are waiting lists at almost every training school and experts say thousands of veterans would benefit from a dog, Annenberg plans to accelerate the dog grant program." -- the Washington Post
