Default Wounded Warrior Project?

How do you guys feel about the Wounded Warrior Project?

Would you make a donation to it?

If so, how much?

I think it's a great program. I have a former drill sergeant who is benefitting from them right now.

I've made a couple of donations, usually around $40-$60 each.

Already contribute and participate. Our range hosts some of the folks from local hospital for a day of shooting and cheeseburgers. Have a local fishing lake that has a wheelchair accessable fishing dock.

I won't tell you how much to donate but I will tell you that you should.

I donate what I can, when I can. One of the local cruise nights I attend splits the 50\50 drawing between wounded warriors, hospice, children's hospital, and the red cross. Each charity gets a different week each month. Last week, my wife won $87 on a 50\50, and we donated the full amount that she won. Not that we couldn't have used it, but they need it more.

The small local gun shop I bought my GP100 from does a lot of fund raising for
Wounded Warriors Project. The owner has a Pinto (car) and belongs to a club and they drive all over raising money for WWP.

I'm a member of WWP Alumni, and it is a great program, one of my psychologists pointed me in their direction. I donate when I can, but usually I buy WWP branded products/clothing more often and a cut of the proceeds goto them. It's nice stuff too, it's Under Armour for the most part.
