BOG Help the one who is helping our Veterans and families.
Organized by: Tami Hood
I am raising money to help a dear Friend of all us veterans. Her name is Venus Azeveda - Laboda. This woman devotes her life to helping veterans and their families in need. She does everything from finding help for them to pay their bills , car repairs, and even spending weekends and long nights with them. She does this to prevent them from becoming 1 of the 22 a day who decide to take there own life. Before her brother lost his fight with P.T.S.D. Venus was the main source of financial support for her family. She had to give up her comfort and volunteer to help save as many people as possible. After loosing her brother, she created a non profit organization called Boots On Ground (BOG).She found that her calling in life is helping veterans and their families who are dealing with the stresses of suicide and P.T.S.D.. Venus spends 50 to 70 hours a week at BOG doing everything she can to help our veterans. As a part of her compassion for veterans Venus has formed a partnership with The Mission Continues to further the mission of BOG by bringing in veteran volunteers that need to find purpose beyond the military. Venus now needs our help. She operates BOG by receiving donations. Venus does not get paid, she actually spends a substantial amount of her own money to do what she does. She has spent her own money to receive the training that was necessary to become one of the only veterans crisis counselors in the area. By doing this , it has put her and her family in financial hardship. If she does not receive help BOG will not be able to continue with its current programs because Venus is BOG. She is the whole program, yes there are other people that help with the program but it will not be able to properly function without her. Venus now needs our help so that she can continue to operate BOG. Any amount will help. Let's please help the person who has helped and saved so many of our HEROES. Thank you all in advance. Please help spread the word.
