Charity of the Month May 2013 - The Wounded Warrior Project
EatSmart fans will continue to select each Charity of the Month in 2013. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011. May's Charity of the Month has been chosen by loyal EatSmart Fan, Jennifer Hall. She selected The Wounded Warrior Project. We will be donating 50 cents for every new Twitter follower during the month of May. (So spread the word!) Read why Jennifer picked The Wounded Warrior Project: The Wounded Warrior Project holds a special place in my heart. The men and women of the Armed Forces give everything to us and ask for nothing in return. There are many obstacles that Veterans face upon returning home. As the wife of a Veteran I know first hand the obstacles that Vets and their families face. The Wounded Warrior Project offers family support, health and wellness, combat stress recovery programs, higher education programs, employment assistance services and more. Our Armed Forces have given so much its time to give back to them. The Wounded Warrior Project is there to help any way they can. Their Mission: To honor & empower wounded warriors. Their Vision: To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history. Their Purpose: To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members. To help injured service members aid and assist each other. To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members. They offer a variety of resources to Veterans and their families.
