Give Hope to the Warriors this Independence Day
For many men and women who fight for our country, the fight does not end when they leave service. The war overseas becomes the war at home.
The situation is too often similar for those who serve in police and fire departments, for first responders, and for others who have experienced non-service related trauma.
In total, an estimated 22 service members take their lives every day due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (commonly known as “PTSD”), including first responders, members of our fire and police departments, and victims of other kinds of trauma.
Together we can do better to appreciate and help them, to help end the tragedy of 22. PTSD Awareness Day is observed every year as a way to recognize the effects PTSD has on the lives of people affected by it.
There are many organizations that are helping to address this crisis. Through Sevenly’s Patriot Collection, you can help veterans through one we think is worthy of our support: Hope for the Warriors.
Last week, Sevenly was honored to be part of a special service at Fort Benning, GA. The fellow soldiers of a fallen Army Ranger were returning from their deployment in Afghanistan. Those soldiers were met there by the family of that young hero who had given his life – and were presented with Sevenly Patriot shirts and glassware chosen by the fallen soldier’s family.
What a privilege to have been a part of that moment.
It reminded us at Sevenly why we do what we do. Enable people to wear their stories. Create conversations. Raise awareness, funding and followers for the world’s greatest causes. Celebrate heroes, and the people who recognize them. #becausepeoplematter
