Wounded Warrior Project

By Connor Doyle & Matt Goldrosen

What is the issue/cause that your charity supports?

The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a nonprofit organization aimed towards helping veterans. The WWP works to help with as many things as possible, from physical injuries to psychological injuries. One such injury is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This usually occurs in veterans who have seen combat, typically resulting from traumatic experiences. PTSD is one of the leading causes of veterans unemployment and homelessness. The WWP works to help veterans get over their fears and overcome PTSD to live better lives.
