Touch The Life of A Veteran 4th of July Campaign
Can you find just one Vet [more if possible] to give a helping hand to during this 4th of July? Just one way of helping end 22 Veteran suicides per day.
There are 22 suicides per day in America and business can help to reduce this by finding vets that need a hand up not necessarily a hand out. Since Vets sacrificed a few years [or more] of their life to serve their country so business owners can continue to offer their products and services, it is a good investment for businesses to reach out and help Vets to say thanks to them.
When Veterans who are depressed and/or suffering emotional struggles see that American businesses are reaching out to touch the lives of Vets, if can be something that becomes their light at the end of a dark tunnel letting them know that Americans, specifically those owning businesses, care very much about their Vets.
Bruce himself is getting help from a motorcycle shop in Titusville, Florida getting his motorcycle fixed. Here is a comment he made:
"My mom died in 2009 and left a small cash inheritance which I used to get a motorcycle. Over the years, the bike has lost its luster and has developed some mechanical problems. I put an ad up on Craigslist offering to do some advertising for any shop that could help me get the bike fixed up. Florida Scooter Sales contacted me offering to look the bike over and see what can be done to fix it. They are tuning up the bike, replacing the clutch and the rear break pads. I am still in need of some parts for the bike and some work on the asthetics but knowing that the bike won't break down and leave me stranded somewhere is a relief. I am thankful for Scott and Steve, the owners, for reaching out to help me. They really do support Veterans. The fact that I was able to find help for an immediate need of mine gave me the idea to promote the idea of getting other businesses to find a Vet to give a helping hand during this 4th of July. I am very sure that Vets who are in need of a hand up will be appreciative as well."
For those living in the area around Titusville, Florida, stop by and thank Scott and Steve for supporting Veterans. If you are a business that has something they can offer which could help a Vet out, contact your local Veterans groups and let them know what you can offer to do. Remember, Vets are not helpless and can thank you by sharing what you do for them with their friends and others which is always good advertising. No matter what, when Vets really struggling emotionally get word that American businesses are reaching out to Vets, it could give them a feeling of hope.
This 4th of July can be not just a time to celebrate our Freedoms, but a way to touch the lives of those that have served to preserve them.
