All Proceeds and Donations will be donated directly to the Wounded Warrior Project, to honor all those who have served us. 

About the WWP and their cause:
The WWP was founded in 2003 in Roanoke, Virginia by a group of veterans and friends who took action to help the injured service men and women of this generation.

The WWP mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors who incurred a physical or mental injury, illnesses, or wound, co-incident to your military service on or after September 11, 2001. 

WWP began as a small, grassroots effort to provide immediate assistance when a warrior of this generation was injured. The WWP felt they could do the most good by providing more comprehensive programs and services to the newly injured, rather than spread themselves too thin by trying to help all veterans. The WWP also knew there were many terrific veterans' organizations for warriors from previous conflicts, but very few focused on serving our newest generation.

Please Join Us! July 13th, 2013 in our efforts to Honor and Support our Service men and women!
