The IWDC will once again feature Workshops for Warriors at the 2019 Sales & Purchasing Convention. Together with WFW, we have created the IWDC’s personal fundraising campaign challenge platform. Members and Vendors can create teams and challenge one another through donation! You can also donate without participating in the challenge. We encourage all of our Members and Vendors to compete to help reach our goal of $50,000! We will recognize the Member and/or Vendor who has raised the most money for Workshops for Warriors at our upcoming event.
Since the beginning of 2019 we have raised $11,197. This includes donations on this platform and others. Please consider how you can help us meet our goal of $50,000.

Founder Hernán Luis y Prado a U.S. Navy officer with combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, recalls, “I saw many of my fellow service members feeling lost with no path to a successful civilian life. I needed to change that.”
