Hey everyone! It’s that time of month again! As may or may not know, revenue generated from the advertisements you see on our website goes to a different charity that serves our military, its veterans, and their families each month. We wanted to let you know a little bit about the charity that May’s donation went to… Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America:
Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) is the first and largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization for new veterans, with over 200,000 Member Veterans and supporters nationwide. IAVA is a 21st Century veterans’ organization dedicated to standing with the 2.4 million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan from their first day home through the rest of their lives. Founded in 2004 by an Iraq veteran, their mission is to improve the lives of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families.
IAVA strives to build an empowered generation of veterans who provide sustainable leadership for our country and their local communities. They work toward this vision through programs in four key impact areas: supporting new veterans in Health, Education, Employment and building a lasting Community for vets and their families (HEEC).
They create impact in these critical areas through assistance to vets and their families, raising awareness about issues facing our community and advocating for supportive policy from the federal to the local level.
If you would like to also contribute to their efforts, visit IAVA.org.
Thanks again to everyone who has sent in their amazing videos last month. It is you who makes these donations possible, and who keeps this community alive!
