Red Carpet Movie Premiere: SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME
The project will bring together a large network of community, corporate, and business leaders who care about homeless veterans and veteran families. We are hoping that through this event we will gain access to an additional 1,000 hours of volunteer time, and that we will also raise between 5,000 and 10,000 in support of the vets.
The potential long term impact is that Veterans On the Rise would make optimal use of supporters kindness to take the work of the organization to new levels, and to more seamlessly help the veterans and veterans served achieve the goal of living more sustainable lives that they love. We are on the cusp of adding more sustainable footprints to their lives, to helping them change their diets, and helping them reconnect with families. Alumni are eager to engage too.
