From the Warfront to the Homefront Foundation Inc, a 501(c)(3) not for profit charitable organization will sponsor for the next 4 months or more, the "50 Push -Ups to Help the "Stop Soldiers Suicide and "Military Women in Power Ltd" programs to help raise much needed funds for both vital organizations.
YOU ARE BEING CHALLENGED TO DO 22 PUSH-UPS AND IF YOU CANT..THEN A DONATION ON YOUR PART OF AT LEAST $10.00 OR MORE SHOULD BE MADE TO
stopsoldiersuicide.org and/or MilitaryWomeninPower @gmail.com (PAYPAL).
EVEN IF YOU CAN DO THE CHALLENGE, YOU CAN STILL DONATE. THEN YOU MUST CHALLENGE AT LEAST 3 OR MORE INDIVIDUALS TO DO 22 PUSH-UPS It is a HORRIFYING statistic, 22 veterans or more commit suicide EVERY day in our country. Veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars have both proudly worn their uniform; served; fought and sacrificed for this country. Now that both wars are winding down, the plight and trauma of returning veterans has been hitting staggering numbers each day with NO relief in sight. Female veterans NOT ONLY find themselves dealing with PTSD as well, but with C-PTSD and MST (Military Sexual Trauma). Various program like "Military Women in Power Ltd" a Bronx, New York based non-profit and the "Stop Soldiers Suicide" organization are doing what they can to stem this EPIDEMIC. Folks sometimes forget that these young men and women who are ending their lives before they have had a chance to live their lives, volunteered to join the military, no one forced them or drafted them,,they did it for LOVE OF COUNTRY, for LOVE OF FREEDOM, whether you agree or disagree with a particular conflict,,,its NOT about that..............its about THEM!!!!
This is a DEVASTATING tragedy...I just dont know how to put this in words, and the thought of so many young adults taking their lives is NOT only beyond comprehension,,,it is so very disturbing and it haunts me so very much. Whether or can do 50 push-ups or not is NOT the main issue here,,,its a way of shining a HUGE SPOTLIGHT on what is happening EVERY single day, especially with female veterans and it is a way for individuals ALL across this great nation of ours to STEP IT UP...TO DO SOMETHING, TO HELP PROMOTE THIS MISSION, TO DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
