Support a vet-Shaun Crump

Shaun Crump


My name is Shaun Crump. I am a veteran working on creating a cafe (modeled partly after the GI cafes) that will assist veterans who served after 9-11 who live in Houston and are struggling in coping with civilian life. It will also support the ant-war/peace movement and cater to the organizations and groups who work towards peace.

I am one of the veterans that this cafe would help. But it doesn't exist yet. I have a son and am struggling to live a "normal" happy life. Things have been very hard for me. I have had trouble finding and keeping jobs. I have been homeless as recently as a year ago. I suffer from PTSD. What I am asking for is help with sustaining my small family while I work with the team formed to create the Peace Cafe in Houston, Tx.

I can live off of $1000 a month. My goal is to raise $12,000 to support my son and myself for an entire year while I work on creating this cafe to help veterans who are in the same position as me.

People say all the time "I support the troops" and "I support veterans". But not much is done to actually help us. Not from the government. Not from the communities. We are thrown into life outside the military and expected to cope. It is difficult and sometimes impossible for some vets without help.

I'm asking you to help me, so within a year of reaching my goal I can help many other Iraq/Afghanistan vets in Houston who live on the streets or are having trouble making ends meet. Many vets have felt (myself included) that we do not receive the support we were promised after our service to our country.

Help me reach my goal of $12,000 so I can continue working towards my goal of helping other vets like me. Vets who deserve better.
