What Is The Wounded Warrior Project?
If you’ve recently seen a commercial on Wounded Warrior Project, you may be wondering what it’s all about. It’s a project that is helping thousands of wounded warriors as well their families when they return from the war.
Your donations may be a one time gift or they may be ongoing with a monthly donation. Your gift will help the serviceman (or woman) and their family as they get back on their feet after having been injured in the war.
Wounded warriors who were in service and have a service related injury or service related illness on or since September 11, 2001, are eligible to participate in this project.
With no dues, the dues were paid out on the battlefield in the line of duty, they have many great benefits and help available to them. To participate in these benefits all they have to do is register and supply the required information at the time of registration.
The project offers support to spouses who are suddenly finding that they are the full time supporter or caregiver to the family and the wounded spouse.
Suddenly finding yourself in the position of being the sole bread winner and being the caregiver to a wounded spouse can be a huge challenge for anyone.
There are many ways that you can help these families. You can honor and empower these wounded warriors by hosting an event to help generate some much needed funds and assistance to these warriors and their families.
You can also volunteer your time and send notes to injured servicemen and their families. Our service members don’t receive enough thanks for all that they do for their country, nor do their families receive enough support for all that they sacrifice by their family members being out in the war zone.
Your generous donations help them to maintain a home, tend to their injured serviceman and provide for their families. They offer a variety of programs to help serviceman and their families make it through the tough times.
Wounded warriors often come home to more challenges than they had on the battlefield. They have to reintegrate themselves back into society often with life threatening injuries and severe disabilities.
The project has many helps available to help nurture their minds as well as their bodies. Designed to encourage and empower our warriors since 2003, it helps to provide services as well as support to the over 80,000 injured service members and their families.
Many injuries are hidden. They may not be obvious immediately, don’t allow our servicemen and women who have offered up huge sacrifices for our country to suffer any longer. If you can’t help in one way surely there is another way that you can help.
From a one time donation to a monthly donation to helping with a fundraiser or simply sending out a few “Thank You” notes to our service men and women, there is something that you can offer up to help servicemen, women and their families through the Wounded Warrior Project.
