mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor
and empower wounded warriors.
Warrior Project began when several individuals took small, inspired actions
to help others in need. One night while watching
the evening news, a group of veterans and brothers were moved by the
difficult stories of the first wounded service members returning home from
Afghanistan and Iraq. They realized then and there that something needed to
be done for these brave individuals beyond the brass bands and ticker tape
resulting objective was to provide tangible support for the severely wounded
and help them on the road to healing, both physically and mentally. What had
been initially viewed as a small contribution has become WWP's signature
program: "WWP backpacks delivered bedside to wounded warriors."
raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of severely
injured service men and women,
help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and
provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of
severely injured service members.
The Wounded Warrior Project needs your help to fulfill its important
mission. Without the continued
support of the American public, the WWP would be unable to provide comfort
and aid to the wounded. There are many ways for individuals and
corporations to partner with the WWP in serving the brave men and women
who have suffered and sacrificed in defense of our nation.
The donations we receive help us buy backpacks for the wounded, alleviate
the financial burden on families, sponsor adaptive sports and recreation
events, and provide a national voice to this newest generation of
veterans. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help wounded
