BENEFITING: WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2013
Hello, my name is Jarrod Loftis and welcome to the fundraising page for Games for Wounded Warriors. This fundraiser's sole goal is to provide gaming entertainment through streaming websites while raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project. The ultimate dream of my fundraiser is to possibly have events/LAN parties where members of the organization, vet's, etc. can come and play some of their favorite games as kids or maybe some new titles they haven't been able to play. All of the proceeds that I receive go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project; all rewards/incentives offered are out of pocket and nor do I "profit" in any way (regardless, the point being to help those in need by doing something I love).
I will be streaming many different game titles (as many as I have, games can be requested and I can find ways to get the game(s) you might want to see me stream) from SNES Emulator's to League of Legends and Diablo 3. The sole purpose is to provide a fun, quirky, gaming environment stream in order to raise funds for the project.
Why Wounded Warrior Jarrod?
My brother, Chris, served in the United States Army for over 4 years and did 2 tours in Iraq/Afghanistan. I remember after he got out and came home that he dealt, a lot, with PTSD, or Post-Tramatic Stress Disorder. This is one of the most common effects that soldiers experience serving in the military today. Many of the young men and women that return home are, essentially, "different people"; of which their experiences, encounters, and hardships could not be compriable to most of our daily lives. These men and women provide a sense of safety and security by just being out there. Some are on the frontlines while others take care of the one's on the frontline; some build schools, houses, shelters. Whatever they may be doing, they deserve to be heard as well; of which many aren't. That is why programs such as Wounded Warrior are an important resource for those in the military dealing with the affects of daily active duty soldier life.
No matter what you donate, if anything, every little bit helps.
Thank you so much and thank the United States Military for what they do everyday.
