11-11 Campaign – Giving Back to Our Veterans

Updated 3/2017-- photos and all links (except to my own posts) removed as many no longer active. and it was easier than checking each one.

H/T to Dr Wes for alerting me to the 11-11 Campaign.  Our veterans have given much to us over the years and continue to do so.  (photo credit)
This campaign seeks to encourage 11 million of us to give $11.  The monies given will be distributed by Beyond Tribute Coalition to 11 charities that specialize in direct services and/or advocacy for Veterans of all eras and conflicts.
The 11 charities in the coalition include:
  • American Gold Star Mothers
  • Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America
  • NY State for Vets
  • Service Women’s Action Network
  • Student Veterans of America
  • The Bob Woodruff Foundation
  • Veterans of Modern Warfare
  • VFW Foundation
  • Vietnam Veterans of America
  • Wounded Warrior Project

My heartfelt thanks to all veterans and their families
on this Veterans Day.
