I am moved by your desire to contribute to my efforts. Donations in the past have been used exclusively to 1) cover the direct costs of staging the events and 2) fund private rehabilitation programs for disabled veterans who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. At this time I would encourage you to donate to Honoring Our Veterans, which is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Corp. that is an educational and public benefit corporation formed to assist wounded and disabled military veterans. You may do so by visiting their website at http://www.honorvets.org.
The educational and public benefit purposes of Honoring Our Veterans include: educating the public on the needs of wounded and disabled veterans; organizing citizen volunteers to help meet and administer those needs through therapeutic activities including recreational therapy; working with other public charities involved with therapeutic activities in order to directly assist wounded and disabled veterans with activities such as horseback riding, National Park tours, river rafting and fishing trips, educating wounded veterans themselves on life skills that will aid in the transition from military careers and war trauma to civilian life; and, building citizen networks to participate in providing free recreational therapeutic activities for wounded and disabled veterans.
Honoring Our Veterans is a 501 (c) 3 organization.
