Vet Vault Veterans Helping Veterans
Organized by: Zeke Lerma
Everyday our American service members fight for our freedom. They selflessly and courageously stand on the front lines willing to die for what we all hold most dear.
What most people don't know is what happens after our veterans return home. Some are injured, missing limbs, suffering from PTSD and out of work. They struggle to find jobs, pay their bills, to achieve higher education and to achieve success in the very nation they are willing to die for.
That’s where Vet Vault comes in. Vet Vault is a veteran owned, non-profit organization that is our nation’s first crowd funding support system for our veterans. At Vet Vault we aim to support veterans like never before. Qualified veterans can create a profile requesting help with medical bills, to buy a laptop for school, to help pay for home repair and other legitimate needs. Americans by reading these profiles will be given the opportunity to assist these veterans by donating to Vet Vault. Our nation will finally have the means to support our troops in the direct way basic way possible, to the veterans themselves.
When we started this journey over a year ago, we wanted to create a system that could change the way people gave to veterans with the core belief that giving back should not be something for just you or I, but for everyone. To us it’s the embodiment of the American dream. It illustrates just how far we are willing to go as a country to support our veterans.
Our goal is to raise money to gain 501(c)3 status and to complete our Vet Vault website that will work in tangent with our VetVault Facebook page.
