Jackson and HWAC

Jackson signed on as a luminary in 2014 to Remember Me Thursday™, so this year the presentation of the award will be very personal to Mike Arms, who created the special campaign for HWAC.  Jackson shared the campaign’s important message on the September Day of Remembrance for orphan pets who had lost their lives without finding forever homes. The social media posts and tweets he created single-handedly resulted in thousands of media impressions and shares in a single day, which has increased awareness and touched the lives of shelter pets waiting for rescue. This coming September, Jackson will once again to be a luminary for the 2015 campaign.
