Cars For American Veterans!!
Organized by: Heather Brown
Many Veterans come back from war to broken homes, families and unfortunately- bank accounts. In many cases veterans receive little to no assistance from the government, waiting months for educational benefits, years for compensation and many die waiting on medical treatment!
Many Veterans come back from war with medical issues (physical, mental, emotional, etc), unable to hold down long-term relationships, living arrangements or jobs. When a veteran is able to get a job, despite their inability to assimilate, we want to see if we can help make a difference by helping that veteran KEEP the job!
One of the biggest ways to help is to provide transportation, so we're going to see if we can raise enough money to help out!
I, myself, am an Iraqi Freedom War Veteran and I (like so many veterans, from my generation) are struggling to keep their head above water. I managed to land a part time job- but between rent, gas, food and personal hygiene products- 20 hours a week doesn't go far enough to hit a savings account. Imagine how much worse off other veterans are, it's sad and sickening.
When this fund raiser meets it's goal, I aim to continue it again and again- choosing a new veteran in need for a car after each goal is met.
Remember, you're donation is not only charitable, but also tax deductible!!
