Lift - A - Vet

Campaign created 5 months ago
Veterans get caught short all too often. We get emails every day from a veteran or family member who is waiting on a VA decision or caught up in some other circumstance beyond their control.  

There are a lot of organizations set up to help veterans in need. But they all take time to respond, if they respond at all. The veteran who is in a financial bind needs help right now.

At the VAWatchdog Dot Org we do our best to locate resources within the VA to provide American military veterans with benefits and help when they need it. Then we'll turn to local agencies in the veterans community in hopes that they are able to offer immediate aid to those who are desperate for it.

In some instances those agencies aren't able to help. They're already overwhelmed with their existing caseload and public funding is always short. Veterans turn to the VAWatchdog Dot Org as the last option and we sometimes run into a dead end.

At the same time we get a lot of messages from you that you want to donate to support our work.  Our consistent reply is that we do not ever charge any veteran for any service we provide. The VAWatchdog is a for profit site supported by advertisers. That 'profit' doesn't leave any money to help the occasional desperate veteran though.

So here we are. We'll provide you an avenue to help others. You pledge a few bucks (or a lot), we decide how to distribute it. You can nominate someone you think needs immediate help but we'll decide.

We are not a non-profit business. **Your donated money will not be tax deductible.**  The most generous gift you'll ever give is to help someone who will never be able to return you the favor. 

We will not issue you any reports about how we used your money other than some  vague intel we'll occasionally publish about our efforts in general.

You'll remain anonymous, of course. 

Give a little, give a lot...trust that we'll do our best to get it to a deserving veteran and family.

We're currently trying to help a 100% disabled vet to catch up on his child support payments.

I've vetted his story and through no fault of his own, he's way way way behind with the payments. He wants to catch up, he wants to be a father to his 2 children, but the family courts aren't sympathetic and he's already spent a weekend in jail.

Family law attorneys won't often touch cases like this...divorce is always a brutal battle and the court just wants you to show them the money.

We'll do what we can with your help.
