Note from Ken, Advocate-in-Chief
Add a pandemic that is killing the most vulnerable, you understand our sense of urgency and why we are working tirelessly to get every veteran we can, housed as fast as we can.
Having been homeless myself, I know even one more night might be one too many for the 37,085 homeless veterans living on the streets of our nation.
There are homeless veterans this very minute who have ready and waiting housing but cannot go in simply because they do not have the deposit. I created a way to solve this problem and immediately get the veteran housed, which to date, has helped over 3,700 veterans get housed in 25 states.
Now, the veterans need us more than ever. It is literally life and death.
Though we are housing twice the number of veterans as last year, the pandemic has drastically reduced corporate and major donors. We want to unite the entertainment and radio industries to raise one million dollars to house 1000 more veterans.
We want to use the #Carboard2Headboard campaign as a vehicle to unite us all. We hope you will join us right now; veterans are dying for us to help them. They are not alone, they have YOU!
It really is simple: When you know veterans will die if you don’t, you just do. So we fight for them. We will never quit fighting for our Veterans, just as they never quit fighting for us.
