PharPoint gives back to the community each month through our Working Together for Change campaign. Learn about Wounded Warrior Project, our sponsored non-profit for November.
At PharPoint Research, we try to live by this quote by Robert South: “If there be any truer measure of a man than by what he does, it must be by what he gives.” For that reason, we’ve initiated a company-wide outreach campaign called Working Together for Change. Each month, we select a local non-profit organization to promote and support through raising funds and spreading awareness. If we measure men and women by what they do and give, then no group of people measures up more than our armed forces and veterans – and for that reason, PharPoint has selected Wounded Warrior Project as our charity for the month of November.[bctt tweet=”“If there be any truer measure of a man than by what he does, it must be by what he gives.””]
Wounded Warrior Project: To Honor and Empower Wounded Warriors
Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit organization based out of Jacksonville, Florida, with one mission: “to honor and empower Wounded Warriors”. Aiming to foster the most successful and well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history, WWP works to raise awareness for the needs of injured service members, and to help wounded veterans and service members throughout the country by providing unique, direct programs and services to improve their quality of life.
While there’s no doubt that our armed forces are the backbone of America, respect and admiration are not enough to assist those facing disabilities from surviving the battlefield. The numbers are staggering: There are currently over 400,000 servicemen and women currently living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), 320,000 living with traumatic brain injuries, and 52,000 living with physical injuries that were obtained during deployment. For every US soldier killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, seven soldiers are injured.
The adjustment period following return from deployment is difficult enough, as service members must completely adapt to a different and new “normal”. This adjustment is even more difficult when combined with physical and mental disabilities. For this reason, WWP works to serve warriors and their families holistically, providing support and recovery programs, physical health and wellness clinics, and economic empowerment events, in the hopes of making the rehabilitation and healing processes easier for all who are involved.
Wounded Warrior Project was founded in 2003, and has had exponential growth ever since. Their Alumni program now has over 76,000 members! WWP serves warriors and their families across the United States and throughout Europe.
Honoring Armed Forces on Veterans Day – and Every Day
With Veterans Day celebrated on November 11th, Wounded Warrior Project is the perfect charity to support for the month of November. However, PharPoint is proud to support our troops every day of the year. WWP is a program with far-reaching and significant impact, and their programs have provided tangible benefits to our brothers and sisters in the military. For these reasons and many more, PharPoint is excited to support Wounded Warrior Project for the month of November. If you’d like to help us contribute to Wounded Warrior Project, check out their website here.
Last month, PharPoint Research raised money for Surfers Healing, a charity that sponsors surf camps as a fun and therapeutic experience for children with autism. We are proud to announce that we raised over $500! For more information on Surfers Healing, go to their website here.
