Outside My Wire: Helping Veterans

$3,935 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 38 people in 46 months
Mission: Outside My Wire is enabling combat veterans to share their wartime experiences on film, or through writing, achieving relief of emotional trauma. The nonprofit will share these stories through its website, providing a networking tool for struggling veterans to reach out to others with similar stories, showing them that they are not alone.

Please help us get this initiative off the ground.  We hope to motivate many other Combat Veterans to come forwards with their stories, and inspire our brothers in arms who are hurting in silence.  

Your donation may save someone's life; unburden a Veteran with years, decades even, of trauma; and inspire countless people.

100% of all funds received will go directly to transportation and housing veterans on location, video shooting and editing, and writers for those who are not comfortable being on film.

Dan McGuinness is the first of many to share his story in a documentary.  A story of his service "outside the wire".  A story of his injuries, his pain, his suffering, and recovery.  A story of depression that lead him to the verge of suicide.  A story he had bottled up for years.  His story is unique, but not unlike many other veterans. Dan knew his story could help others.

Outside My Wire is a community for others to share their own stories. A community that encourages others that are bottling up these stories to get "outside their wire" and share. The process of sharing helps relieve the pain and helps others understand.

GoFundMe is a temporary tool until Outside My Wire finds a suitable 501(c)3 to partner with.  Thank you for your support!!!
