GIVE BACK TO VETERANS

My son has been helping homeless and elderly  veterans, in addition to families in need for nearly three years. Tyler raised money for them and co-founded Give Back to Veterans Day with my help. After seeing a YouTube video about the plight of homeless veterans, Tyler began finding ways to provide a hand up to heroes who served in the military, when he was four years old.

 Tyler was featured on Little Big Shots.  
GoFundMe helped  with this campaign, too.  We are grateful for everyone's support. Almost $5,000 has been raised. However, we want to keep this campaign going, because Tyler makes Hero Bags which are packed with everything from food cards to clothing for veterans in need.
9680579_1525519263.5345_funddescription.He also provides supplies for  The Maryland Center for Veteran Education and Training (MCVET). Homeless veterans live there and drop in for help. Please watch the video that shows how some donations were used:  http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2016/12/21/kid-preneur-works-to-help-maryland-veterans/amp/ ‌.

Tyler also donates to veterans who are waiting for help from the VA, and those who are living on the streets or in tents.  This man is one of the people Tyler helps. He is a senior citizen who served in Vietnam. 

9680579_1525517692.2303_funddescription.Veterans like him often need everything from food and clothing to bus passes.  Tyler also delivers items to elderly veterans in their homes, and he helps with a variety of personal emergencies.  The veterans appreciate gift cards, food, clothing, toiletries, and even essentials like socks and underwear.

If you believe this is a worthy cause, any amount that you can  give is helpful and appreciated! If you cannot donate, please consider sharing this information  with other individuals or visiting www.kidtimeenterprises.com. Look for The Give Back to Veterans project at the top of the website page.


Thank you,

Andrea and Super Tyler

Read about Give Back to Veterans Day 1

 
My name is Tyler. I am a 5-year-old kidpreneur and co-creator of Give Back to Veterans Day. Doing something special for veterans began after I started asking my mom  why some veterans are homeless. After talking to my mom, we came up with an idea to make hygiene and grooming kits with thank you cards to give to elderly or homeless veterans on March 26. My dad, uncle, grandfather and lots of people I know are veterans.  I wanted to do something nice for as many veterans in need as I could because they deserve it!

I had such a good response from veterans who needed items before Easter, I want to keep Give Back to Veterans Day going and make it even bigger! I want to raise money to buy more personal care items, and at least one computer, so veterans who also need jobs, or their children who don't have a computer for school assignments can use it to help with their goals to make their lives better. Some veterans need a computer to look for jobs. It is hard to do that in a library. Some organizations that help veterans also need new equipment. I believe that having access to a brand new computer could help someone who simply cannot afford to buy one. 

Since I don't run a nonprofit with my mom yet, I could use help from caring people like you. All monetary donations are appreciated!  

Another way to support my fundraiser is by buying a copy of my limited edition book called "Tyler Goes Around the World." You may order it from my website www.kidtimeenterprises.com. I am donating a portion of the proceeds to help fund my next giving campaign to help veterans.  If you already purchased a copy, I appreciate your help very much. Every dollar helps.

 My mom will post campaign updates for me.  Please send her a Facebook message if you would like to collect hygiene products in your office or church in Maryland, D.C.  or Virginia to help with my project. Thank you for your support. I appreciate your interest in my desire to help veterans in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia.

Update:
Thank you for helping to make Give me to Veterans Day 2 a success!  I am preparing to turn this event into a nonprofit. If you would like to donate so that I can help veterans in need, I have still been giving homeless veterans supplies.  I appreciate your support.

Tyler's 2018 Christmas wish is to visit three veteran shelters for a giving tour. He will be going to Patriot House, MCVET, and Baltimore Station, in addition to visiting several local veterans. The shelters house homeless veterans who are in programs which help them to get a new start. Donations will be used for wish list items and gifts. Thank you to everyone who helped already!
