Being part of the military life means dealing with deployments. As military spouses we often wonder will our soldiers come back the same and the majority of our spouses do, but many don’t.
Although I am fortunate to have a husband who wasn’t severely injured in Iraq he has dealt with quite a few issues since returning from deployments which in turn has made me even more aware of our Wounded Warriors and what they endure.
The Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to “honor and empower wounded warriors” of the United States Armed Forces. “The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) works to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women, to help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.
I have been a supporter of WWP for quite sometime , following what they do and sharing with you all. I met some of the Brawny Team in NYC this past August while attending BlogHer and got a chance to learn more about their involvement with the Wounded Warrior Project.
You can imagine my eagerness to join Wounded Warrior Project corporate sponsor Brawny Paper Towels in bringing even more awareness and support to the WWP as well as encouraging our nation to support our heroes and their families.
More details on this below!
Speaking of supporting our heroes I wanted to share a very easy way for you to help in making life better for Wounded Warriors and their families.
Supporting Our Heroes
From now through December 31, 2012 “LIKE” the Brawny Facebook Page and leave a thank you or message of support and Brawny will match those up with a $1 donation (up to $250k) in addition to their direct donation of $250k.
Over the next few weeks I’d like for you to join Army Wife 101 in with your stories and show your support for our Wounded Warriors. In addition I will be sharing my personal stories of what the WWP means to me as well as ways to get involved.
I look forward to making a difference and I hope you do too!

Awesome! I went to the Brawny FB app and left my “thank you” there.
You are awesome…thanks for your support!
What exactly do they do for the troops? Do you personally know some one who has been helped by this organization? Just wondering. I dont fall for high budget commercials
If you read the post you will see that Brawny is donating over $400K to them and if you read my second post you will know that my husband as well as a wife who shared her spouse’s story was helped by the WWP too!
thats great news. 400k barely covers the executives salaries and bonuses. Im glad that spouse was helped and hopefully many more.
here are some more facts: they provide grants to other non-profits that have more then 90% of their money to go the troops. However, under the condition they do not use the word Wounded Warrior, ever. Another thing that bothers me is that they charge ordinary people that want to raise funds for them. They get charge to make money for them. For example, if you want to use their logo it will cost you. That dosent make sense to me. I’m a wounded vet and I laid in a hospital bed when WW was just a small mom and pop shop. They gave me a shirt. Later they started giving book bags full of gear. Next year they blew up! Great for them, after all they are a business. My problem is that they turned corporate and forgot about their roots. People donate blindly to many organizations like this. It makes me sad to know that after a while may vets get paraded around by WW and live the high life with their AMEX then they are forgotten. Sorry for being a buzz kill but every rose has its thorns
