Celebrating #Military Heroes: Veteran's Challenge Raises $448,000 by @CharityIdeas
The contest ended on the Fourth of July, and that goal was achieved in even greater ways than anyone imagined. In total, generous and passionate supporters used the power of social media, personal connections and a love of our military friends and heroes to raise $448,393 ! The compassion, love and desire to help families really shined in the contest. Not only did every one of the more than 75 participating military charities raise money for their causes, but they also raised awareness and shared their passion with others, who in turn learned about the causes and shared it again... creating the positive, inspiring backdrop that created close to half a million dollars in help for military families.
