DISABLED VETERAN-desperately needs help!

This is for a dear friend of mine, who is Disabled Veteran, He would humbly like to remain out of the spot light. A man who has sacrificed so much for his family and country, deserves someone to return the favor and help him a little.

This isn't something he would ask for on his own, but he is so deserving. I felt it was my place as an American and his friend to step up! We all need to be championed at times!  

Here is a little more about our Veteran. He served in two branches of the service, and spent almost a decade down range in various roles supporting government missions. Due to multiple injuries, he was forced to leave his role faithfully serving, that he had done for the past twenty-five years, and embarked on another adventure. 

Still needing a mission, he opened a health & fitness business to help veteran's and citizen's with mental health issues, and/or physical disabilities. Having a child, and a brother with disabilities, has always made this very dear to his heart.

Being a person who deals with his own trauma/PTSD issues, he wanted to help himself by helping others find their purpose again. His business played a big part in the community by being domestic violence, suicide prevention and anti-bullying advocate. 

Due to the Covid, and other economy issues, he was forced to close his small, but truly impactful business. This left him in some serious debt; his house is currently in foreclosure; vehicle is two payments behind; medical bills are adding up, along with spending all of his savings just to stay afloat over the last few months. 

It's really hard to know someone from words, or to truly feel the impact of someone's duress. I know, if I was in his shoes, I'd pray someone would lifted me up when I was down, and give  me something to hold onto.

I am giving him something else to hold onto. Please help me tighten his grip on life. We all feel alone in our darkest times. No one should have to feel that, but it makes it even harder, when you're at the point of loosing it all. 

We see so many fund raisers popping up on our feeds. Some are quite silly in comparison. Let's make this one count! 

Thank you all!
