I understand that a lot of people think that this charity does not look good on paper but the statistics do not tell the whole story. This charity is not just a few people sitting in an office waiting for people to find them and donate money. They are out there getting everyday people involved through fundraising efforts like Tough Mudder. I am one of tens of thousands of people who have participated in a 12 mile military styled obstacle course designed to push your body to the limits. If it were for events like this I would never have heard of the Wounded Warrior Project. It takes a lot of money to put on events like these but it gets the word out about the Wounded Warrior Project. It also makes people who wouldn’t normally think about veteran charities become more aware and hopefully more involved. Aside from Tough Mudder it takes a lot of advertising money and large staff to launch and run a new charity foundation. Please don’t divert your money just because this charity does not look good on paper. Ask a wounded vet how he or she feels about it.
