Overview
What is your cause and how will it make the world kinder?

We believe that charity should be a self-sustaining mechanism that gives back more than it takes. Here at VOWAID Foundation we feel you can accomplish your goals by adhering to three (3) primary aspirations: (1) Perseverance, (2) Personal Responsibility, and (3) through Community Engagement. Anything is possible and can be accomplished with a well-connected social enterprise, determination and sacrifice. Individuals must understand how important it is to get involved to support Men and Women Veterans, spouses, children of disabled Veterans and our Fallen Heroes by giving them the tools they need to survive after long years of Warfighting.

How will you use the $10k?

As VOWAID staff, volunteers, partners and Board of Directors help promote positive outcomes to improve civic amenities of military and civilian infrastructure services, by establishing better selected dispositions for Men and Women Veterans, spouses, children of disabled Veterans and our Fallen Heroes through centralizing their activities of essential services through a consortium of care.
Program (1): Birth Hospitality Club
Services: Military mothers, families with small children and low income.
Provides: Social Services support and referrals to USMC CDC for newborns essentials, assist with child care cost, and essential need boxes for children 0-6 months ($50 each box) 200 Boxes will be possible with 10,000.

What impact do you hope to make?

We hope to alleviate some of the financial strains of young military families.
