Azucena, Thank you for supp…

Thank you for supporting Leave No Veteran Behind (LNVB) and our efforts to capitalize on the CrowdRise Veteran's Challenge sponsored by the Founder of Craigslist, Craig Newmark.

Because of your support, Leave No Veteran Behind was SUCCESSFUL IN WINNING the first $5,000 challenge grant and last week's $1,000 award issued by the CrowdRise Veteran's Challenge! Where as it stands, LNVB is also in contention to win the $35,000 grand prize. The deadline for the contest is July 3, 2013. Please keep checking on us to view our progress and to help secure our victory!

In the mean time, here are a few of the programs that will be supported by your contribution:

1. The expansion of Leave No Veteran Behind's Safe Passage program, which would employ up to 150 former service members to decrease youth violence throughout the City of Chicago during the largest school closure in the history of American public education. Where at the same time, LNVB will leverage the same resources many times over to also run the largest transitional-work program for Veterans in the country, which has already distributed more than $1-million dollars worth of wages to men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

2. The creation of Leave No Veteran Behind's GreenCorps "Seeds to Success" Program (see attachment), which will directly employ 60 youth and 6 Veteran-mentors to revitalize a blighted and vacant lot near the intersection of 76th and Saginaw Avenues in the city's South Shore community.

3. The awarding of three more $5,000 Retroactive Veteran Scholarships with the support of the Veterans United Foundation.

4. The completion of the 2013 Chicago Marathon by Leave No Veteran Behind's first coordinated Running Team, which currently has 34 members and has runs scheduled throughout the summer in partnership with the Chicago Cubs, Girls in the Game, and the Chicago White Sox.

Again, thank you for your commitment to the cause and for supporting our organization as our nation prepares for the troop drawdown from Iraq and Afghanistan, which will see 500,000 active-duty service members transfer to "Veteran status" in the next 18 months.

Where in the end, let's continue serving those who have already served and please consider building on this momentum by doubling down on your contribution!

All the Best,
