In exactly a month from the start of this fundraiser, I will be turning 19. Last year I did the same thing and in a month, my family and friends donated $350 for the Lead the Way Fund. This year I'd like to raise at least $500. Spread the word to help raise money for a great cause! Please read the Mission/Vision of the GallantFew below:
GallantFew’s mission is to prevent veteran isolation by connecting new veterans with hometown veteran mentors, thereby facilitating a peaceful, successful transition from military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose.
We do this by creating and supporting a nationwide network of successfully transitioned veterans that engage locally with new veterans with the same military background now going through transition and by motivating communities all over the nation to take responsibility for veterans returning; welcoming, connecting, and including.
We believe this will prevent veteran unemployment, homelessness and suicide.
GallantFew was founded by Veterans for Veterans.
We know that, in many cases, the trust level between a Veteran and one or more non-veterans can be low or nil. Another Veteran is sometimes the only assurance that a Veteran can have, the only trust, the only stability. GallantFew is Veterans from all branches of uniformed service, with no inter-service rivalry bullshit, helping our fellow Veterans in any way that we can. We’ve all been there when we were needed, when that call came. Now we know that at least we can trust one another to get some things done right. Because that’s how Veterans get the important things done. With a plan, with standards, and with a commitment to one another.
