This page will feature links to charities that people send to me. I'll update it as often as I can.
We are a non-profit organization that takes a project vehicle and restores or modifies it for a wounded warrior so they can get back on the road. No matter the condition of the vehicle, or the extent of our heroes’ injuries, we have talented professionals to take on the challenge and give back to those who gave for us.
Whether the vehicle needs to be modified for a warrior who has lost use of his or her legs, needs the shift bar moved, or the engine needs to be completely rebuilt, W4W has the capability and passion to get the mission accomplished. W4W has developed an extensive network of supporters and volunteers who stand ready to commence working on a vehicle project.
Our volunteers are professionals in the automotive aftermarket. Our sponsors are many and they provide parts and services. Both are here to help because of their deep gratitude for our military. Without them, this wouldn’t be possible.
W4W can restore, rebuild or modify any vehicle (off-road or not, jeep, sedan or sports car).

Now this isnt my page, but this is a great idea. She will have to shut down doing this unless she gets donations, which is sad because she has made a lot of soldiers happy getting pictures of their loved ones while they are deployed. I am just trying to get the word spread.

The VFW is active on behalf of veterans and their communities. We organize blood drives, lobby our elected officials in support of our nation's veterans, and promise support for returning vets and their families. We participate in many different community service organizations such as Make A Difference Day, National Volunteer Week, Toys for Tots, and March of Dimes.
We provide services and support to veterans, their spouses and their families. We act as a VA liaison to assist veterans in tackling a wide range of problems from securing support to acquiring well-deserved military awards. In Illinois, we have four Veterans Homes for the elderly and disabled, some specially equipped to care for Alzheimer patients. We perform graveside funeral service rites to honor the memory of a deceased comrade. We will always be here to ensure the honor and recognition due our veterans, in life and in death.

I would appreciate you spreading the word about the new chapter I am starting for the Military Order of the Purple Heart. I am not asking for donations, I am merely asking for likes and word spread to get new members to join. Membership is for anyone who received a Purple Heart and free for residents of Ohio as the Dept of Ohio pays for the lifetime membership.
