Helping Veterans

Only $12.00 Donation is Needed

Did you know, the latest data according to the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, there were 6,146 veteran suicides. Additionally, the latest data from the Department of Defense reports there were 519 service members who committed suicide. I know you would agree with me, 1 suicide is too many.

Last year we had numerous vets with mobility issues requesting trips, but unfortunately, we did not have a boat set up to handle a wheelchair. In March of this year, we launched our first ADA-compliant wheelchair boat and had a successful mission. We have numerous wheelchair missions scheduled for the rest of the year.

Here is where we need your help. We have had numerous requests for missions where the vet could not travel to our fishing areas. Again, there is a need and we want to fulfill it. We are looking to expand our services with a more transportable boat, allowing us to connect with more veterans.

We are asking you to simply make a $12.00 donation which could be equivalent to the price of a couple of boxes of worms, bait, or even a trip to a high-end coffee shop. These great men and women, these warriors, have sacrificed so much, I think you get where I am going.

To make a donation, please click here. Please help this request go viral; forward this email to your friends and family.

I appreciate you and may God Bless you and your family.
