2020 is now on its third quarter. I still can’t believe how much this pandemic has changed our world … the good, the bad, and even the ugly. We have seen across the news, as well as social media how people and brands are rallying to do something good as well as give back to our community. On the other hand, we also have the left and right bad news all around us. Then there’s the ugliness of hate, corruption, and everything negative. I don’t know about you, but there are times I can’t help but feel overwhelmed. Especially considering I have kids and I can’t even imagine what kind of world awaits them in their future.
Obviously, there’s not much that I can do about that. I can’t fix or try to fix something that hasn’t taken place. What I can do is make a difference now. Set an example. Show them there’s still good out there. After all, the good is out there. We just need to amplify that. Now more than ever that we need to try harder and make this world a better place.
My favorite charity and veterans service organization Wounded Warrior Project is hosting a virtual Carry Forward 5K to honor and empower wounded warriors and their families. As a military wife, I had my fair share of struggles. I also personally know friends who have had problems transitioning from being in the service to going back to a civilian lifestyle. Then there’s my mom who also served and came home like a completely different person. Whether they’re active or retired, wounded physically, and or having mental struggles, our service members needs our support!
WWP or much better known as the Wounded Warrior Project was founded in Roanoke, Virginia by a group of veterans and their friends. Since 2003, they have been tirelessly taking action and advocating to help injured service members, and improving the lives of our nation’s finest and their families.
WWP provides care to those who incurred a physical or mental injury, illnesses, and wounds that are co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001. While that may seem limiting, they have more than 20 programs and services in addition to their valuable resources offered.
Our service members need our support, and WWP is doing its best to transform the way America’s injured veterans are empowered, employed, and engaged in our communities. This year, they are hosting a virtual Carry Forward 5K to help bring awareness to the cause and raise funds for their current and ongoing projects—and you can help!
This opportunity is one of the most powerful, one-of-a-kind events you’ll ever experience. Show up and step up for veterans! Let’s make a difference. Now, more than ever that we need to try our best to make the world a better place. WWP Carry Forward 2020 is in full swing. Join me and help put this mission into motion:
