As a grassroots organization consisting of three non-salaried volunteers — a Veteran, a graphic designer, and a copywriter — we believe great change happens when many hands come together on a shared mission and vision.
We dedicated everything we had to initiate the “50 States: Veterans + Artists United” tour. We pitched proposals and fundraised to gain the support of key initial partners to get us started and on the road, but after completing 39 states and 41 projects we now require more funds to complete our nationwide mission.
Now more than ever we need your help, but not the kind of help you’d expect.
We are not asking you for a donation (although those are always appreciated). Instead, we’re asking corporate America and their marketing departments to help us fund the project and further share these incredible stories.
Cold calling, emailing, and messaging large companies can only get the few of us so far, so now we’re turning to the power of our people to help get their attention and support.
We don’t mean to publicly call-out brands, many do incredible work and support other worthy causes and organizations, but we are asking them to strongly consider putting their marketing budgets to work towards a mission unlike any other.
By crowd-sourcing our ideal partnerships we believe could create authentic relationships between a brand and an organization to create everlasting impact in communities across the country.
Share, retweet, and @ reply the brands you think should enlist their influence, platform, and to resources to help us share Veterans’ stories through art, design, fashion, and more.
