Wounded Warrior Project Spotlight - Your Donation Matter

No matter the size of your donation, when you give to Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) you are supporting an organization whose broad appeal reaches across demographics, geographic, and political boundaries. WWP is an apolitical organization by design. It's not about the war - it's about the warrior.

Who WWP Serves

WWP serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or
wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following this tragic day in history.

With advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, an unprecedented percentage of service members are surviving severe wound or injuries. For every US Soldier killed in WWI and WWII, there were 1.7 soldiers wounded. In Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, for every US soldier killed, seven were wounded. Combined, over 48,000 service men and women have been physically injured in the recent conflicts. It is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.

Help support our wounded warriors. Please DONATE what you can.
