Veterans Day of Giving

Veterans at Mass Deployment, Operation Chi-Town Salute.

The Mission Continues is starting a movement.

For more than 15 years, The Mission Continues has been connecting veterans with under resourced communities. The Mission Continues empowers veterans to become community leaders through continued opportunities to serve locally and nationally.

This Veterans Day, supporting the very first Veterans Day of Giving is the best way to honor the sacrifices our nation’s veterans have made to protect and serve our country.

What is the Veterans Day of Giving?

It’s a one-time opportunity, on November 10, 2023, to participate in a new movement to raise awareness and inspire support for our nation’s veterans.

As we move farther away from the events of September 11th, 2001 and the resulting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, we have seen the national consciousness shift away from the challenges facing veterans, toward more “timely” causes. Following the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan in the fall of 2021, we have also observed a steady decrease of veteran-focused philanthropic dollars. American wars may have ended, but the impact of service on our nations’ veterans has not. The mental and physical effects of military service can be permanent and life-altering. Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for post-9/11 veterans, accounting for 22.3% of all deaths.

Our nation’s veterans give so much to protect our country and they deserve to not be forgotten.
