WWIA’s #GivingTuesday

Join us in our mission to bring Honor, Connection, and Healing to our Purple Heart Heroes!

This Tuesday, November 30th, 2021 is Giving Tuesday. Our Giving Tuesday goal is to send two Purple Heart Heroes on an all-expense paid, 4-day therapeutic outdoor recreational adventure! Your generous and thoughtful contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Please consider a gift to WWIA and our Purple Heart Heroes this Giving Tuesday and help us HONOR our Heroes by CONNECTING them with their fellow Purple Heart recipients, with caring communities, and with the great outdoors. You can assist in their HEALING and recovery and help repair the invisible wounds of war. Your donation will help cover the costs of travel, transportation, lodging, meals, gear, and everything in-between. We want our Heroes to focus on what matters and leave the details to us. Please join us in our mission by considering a gift to WWIA this Giving Tuesday and during this fundraising season. Let’s give back to those who have given so much for our freedom. We thank you in advance for standing with us to help HONOR, CONNECT, and HEAL our combat-wounded veterans. đź’ś
 
Our Mission
The Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation Inc. (WWIA) serves our Nation’s combat wounded Purple Heart recipients by providing world-class outdoor sporting activities as a means to recognize and honor their sacrifice, encourage independence and connections with communities, and promote healing and wellness through camaraderie and a shared passion for the outdoors.
 

“What this organization does is incredible.  This weekend has been awesome.  From shooting birds, catching my first Muskie, watching deer and just generally being in some amazing country.  There have been many times over the past years when I questioned my decision to join and then stay in, especially after being shot in Afghanistan.  Events like this erase that doubt.  We have been surrounded by people who remind us why our endeavor is a worthy one.  It is so easy to lose that point of reference in the fog of society.  The time I spent here has been like being able to push a reset button and it’s like the weight of the world disappeared for a few days. (even though my back feels like the weight of the world is on it from all that Muskie Fishing)!  I feel blessed to have the opportunity to experience this place, as the cheesy saying goes ‘Time spent in the woods is never wasted’.  That couldn’t be truer on this event.  I am eternally grateful for the outpouring of generosity.”      D.
