Apparently, the Wounded Warrior Project isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I got schooled by a reader who’d seen this viral post, and suggested several other organizations that would be a better use of my money. I’m not here to say that one person’s experience speaks for the organization as a whole, but when profits go to the people that run the organization and merchandise like stickers and hats, I’m pulling my support. We’re done. The sticker is coming off as soon as I can get some Goo Gone.
Just wanted to let you know that I was wrong about them, and so are a bunch of other people. Check out this web site to locate charities who really put their money where it needs to go.
I feel bad that I was suckered in by a free sticker and a Facebook post. It pays to do some research, but the best thing you can do is give money to local charities, anyway. Might I suggest Hope Restored? It’s right here in Silver Spring and run by a friend, Jeffrey Thames.
