Warrior 2 Warrior

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Physical and emotional stress among veterans and active duty servicemen has reached epidemic levels.

We’ve all seen it, fellow Veterans who are suffering. Warrior 2 Warrior offers de-institutionalized and non-threatening approach to help reduce stigma.

They offer intensive physical rehabilitation and peer to peer mentorship along with personalized secondary services.

Their plan is to create what they refer to as “Resilience Ranch” which will resemble a forward operating base: simple dirt roads, trailers, fire pits, tents. This rustic austerity will evoke the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, and prime warriors to engage with the past in a safe environment.

They’re currently partnered with:

Cubesmart

EXOS for Physical Optimization (rehabilitation, athletic training…)

Gallus rehab

Legalzoom

Lowry Creative

Mid-Atlantic Finance

Vintage for Vets (V4V) The fundraising arm of w2w

April Designated Month of the Military Child

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

April is the Month of the Military Child, a time to recognize and appreciate military children for their service and sacrifice. Military children live with on-going challenges presented by frequent moves, family separations, and life transitions. They move 6-9 times during their K-12 years. In their own way, military-connected children serve, too.

As a demographic, military-connected children number almost 4 million, 75% of whom are school-age. Almost every school district in America includes military-connected children and youth whose parents serve or served in the Active, Guard, and Reserve components of the Armed Forces. Over 80% of these students attend U.S. public schools while less than 8% attend Department of Defense schools.

The Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) works to address the needs of military-connected children through programs, services, and resources designed to enlighten and empower parents, educators, other supportive adults and the students themselves. After more than a decade of war, the well-being of all military-connected children and youth depends on a strong, consistent network of supportive adults. Parents, teachers, mentors, and role models play a pivotal role in the life of a military child.

You can make a difference in the life of a military child by seeking opportunities to acknowledge their sacrifice, volunteering for organizations that support them, and recognizing their contribution to the nation. MCEC invites everyone to wear purple on Friday, April 13th, as a visible gesture of support for military kids, and to financially support MCEC in our endeavors to ensure military-connected students overcome challenges to become college, workforce and life-ready.

The Military Child Education Coalition serves the children of those who serve us all and encourages efforts that strengthen our military children and ensure opportunities for their quality education.

MultiCam Announces Charity Partnership with Warriors Heart

Monday, March 26th, 2018

Brooklyn, NY – March 26, 2018 – MultiCam®, the combat-proven, complete family of concealment solutions for those who demand the best, have announced a strategic partnership through GoFundMe, with Warriors Heart, a public-private funded treatment facility with a mission to provide treatment for those who put their lives on the line for our safety.

Soldiers, law enforcement officers and first responders face many challenges in their careers. They often put their lives on the line to protect others and must so with little to no regard for their own safety. However, for many in those professions coming to grips with the stresses of their service sadly often leads to addiction. The Warriors Heart facility in Bandera, TX helps this unique community find the support they need.

Founded by three respected military service members, with decades of combined experience, Warriors Heart provides a peer-to-peer-based solution to help the over 13.3 million American Military, Veterans, Law Enforcement and First Responders faced with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), alcohol addiction, prescription/ drug addiction, and mild TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

Realizing that warriors are found along many walks of life; from firefighters to EMT, Military, and Law Enforcement, the goal of Warriors Heart is to provide the support system that Warriors need to return to a balanced, healthy lifestyle free from addictions and harmful patterns of behavior. Those in career paths that require a great deal of self-sacrifice are often more susceptible to depression and related issues, which can lead to dependence or addiction on substances like alcohol and prescription drugs. Warriors Heart helps reintroduce purpose into the lives of those who’ve served and continue to serve their country and their community.

“We at MultiCam® recognize where we would be, if it weren’t for the sacrifices our Military and Law Enforcement personnel, and we want to help Warriors Heart achieve their mission,” stated MultiCam®, Brand Manager, Ernesto Rodriguez. “Warriors Heart is an incredible organization that tirelessly works to support those returning to a life they no longer know. We are honored to partner with such a selfless organization, which truly understands what it means to sacrifice.”

MultiCam® has proudly supported the men and women in uniform, as well as their families, for their sacrifices in ensuring the protection of our freedoms. It is MultiCam®’s goal to focus their efforts on raising as much money as possible for the Warriors Heart through its marketing channels including its brand ambassadors on Team MultiCam®.
