Dog the Bounty Hunter: Black Group To Host Book Signing and Christmas Toy Giveaway With “Dog The Bounty Hunter”

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson's Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny(BOND), Stretches Out a Hand to Help Someone in Need:
Duane Chapman

The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson has spent his entire life stretching out his hands, to help those in need help themselves. Helping others is what the Rev. does; it's his life's work.

Now, he sees someone else that needs help, and so he's stretching out his hand once more.

This time his helping hand is doing double duty: while he's helping the young men at his Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny(BOND) Home for Boys, he's also reaching out to help another in need: Duane "Dog" Chapman.

From the BOND press release a few minutes ago:
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles based nonprofit organization BOND, the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny, will host a Book Signing for Duane “Dog” Chapman’s book “You Can Run But You Can’t Hide”, as well as a Christmas toy giveaway for kids on Saturday, December 15, at 11:30a.m.PST.

Who: BOND, the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny.

What: Book Signing and Christmas toy giveaway (proceeds go towards the “BOND Home For Boys”)

When: Saturday, December 15, at 11:30 a.m. PST.

Where: BOND Headquarters, 6146 West Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, Calif. 90035 (S.E. Corner of Pico and La Cienega).

Why: Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND began working with Dog after his popular A&E show “Dog The Bounty Hunter” was suspended when a private message from Dog, which contained racial slurs, was made public. “We don’t condone racial slurs, but upon hearing Dog’s apology and after meeting with him and his family, we don’t believe he’s a racist. We also believe that Duane “Dog” Chapman sincerely wants to make amends to the black community, and deserves a second chance,” said Rev. Peterson.

Come meet “Dog the Bounty Hunter”, purchase an autographed copy of his book; and pick up free Christmas toys for the kids. This event is free and open to the public. You must bring the kids to get the toys. For more information, call (323) 782-1980 or visit

How about it Dog fans?

You've been waiting for news of the Dog and a chance to help him out.

Now you can help the Dog and help a good cause, to boot!

We talked to Ermias Alemayehu, at BOND about the Dog appearance for a good cause.

"We help these young men and we don't take one dime of government money. We earn it the old-fashioned way--we get out and work for our projects."

"We don't believe in being shackled by the government, we'd rather work--and Dog is volunteering to help us do some good."

ANY Dog fan worth his salt in the LA area, head on over to BOND, bring the kids, meet the Dog, and show some support. You've been waiting for something you can help out on--well, here it is.

AND if you're not in the LA area: don't think you can't help out these young men at the BOND Home for Boys and, in the process, help out Dog the Bounty Hunter.

DBKP's been getting emails for weeks--we want the Dog back!

What can we do to help the Dog?

You have your answer! Ermias says any donation will help out. Send BOND $2, $5, $10, whatever, and mark "DOG the Bounty Hunter" in the memo/note line.

"No amount is too small or too large. This is a tremendous help for us, having Dog volunteering like he has."

Help Dog help BOND help these young men help themselves.

Send a message here. BOND will help Dog, Dog will help BOND's Home for Boys, and everyone might just have a merrier Christmas.


BOND: Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny

What is BOND?

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson and BOND are standing in the gap on behalf of fathers and their families. Thanks to your support, we are rebuilding our families and communities.

We are making a profound difference, through our powerful meetings for men and women, Sunday Services, counseling, mentoring, and tutoring; and through programs such as our BOND Home for Boys, After School Character Building Program and Entrepreneur Program; as well as through our radio and TV programs, conferences, workshops, town hall meetings, articles, interviews, and Moral Reconstruction Campaign.

BOND Home for Boys

The BOND Home for Boys is helping build Black fathers, one young man at a time.

What is the BOND Home for Boys?

From Bond's Website:
Residents of the BOND home come from foster care, group homes, juvenile detention centers, transitional housing, and sometimes the streets. More important than where each boy comes from is his attitude, and willingness to overcome his past. Prior to being accepted into the program, each applicant is evaluated to measure this willingness.

BOND's Home is much more than just a physical shelter for young men - it is a full program, with requirements, expectations, and abundant learning opportunities.

Residents of the home are helped to overcome anger right from the beginning. This is critical, as anger will have been the number one impediment to their happiness and success in life. To this end, they are counseled by Rev. Peterson, both individually and in group settings. The young men are tutored when needed, helped to put their finances in order, are assisted in finding and holding employment, and are guided to find their purpose in life. Those so inclined are encouraged to start businesses.

The BOND Home has been a resounding success and has transformed young men who previously had futures which held little promise. It stands as an excellent example for the surrounding community.

There is a constant waiting list at the BOND home, with a great need for more homes like this one, as even a cursory visit to any juvenile detention center would reveal. BOND plans to start new homes as funds allow.

One can't help but be impressed with this tremendously needed program.

Can you help the Dog help out those young men at BOND?

We're all waiting on that answer.
