Below is a statement from WWP. This is one of many reason I am running. Please consider supporting me on my journey to help our wounded warriors. 100% of the money I raise in my year long run will go directly to WWP.
Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is outraged that the continued gridlock and government shutdown is now threatening the disbursement of benefits payments to the brave men and women who served and sacrificed for this nation. WWP is committing $20 million to support registered Wounded Warrior Alumni should government checks not go out on or around November 1, 2013. If you are a registered Alumnus as of October 14, 2013, WWP is prepared to send you a $500 check if the government does not come to a resolution in time for the November payment. These funds are to assist with expenses during this payment gap, and WWP will not ask for reimbursement. While this action would not solve all financial hardship, we are committed to helping our warriors, especially in time of crisis.
