We’re Giving $50k to America’s Heroes Right Now

Hey, the second annual Veterans Charity Challenge just launched over on CrowdRise at noon EDT. We’ve expanded the challenge this year to benefit police and fire fighter nonprofits, in addition to veterans and military charities.

This year’s Veterans Charity Challenge 2 is a follow-up campaign to last year’s campaign, which raised more than $445,000 for veteran, military and their family-affiliated nonprofits. The Challenge began today (May 22) and ends on July 3 at 12:00 pm EDT.

I’m giving $50k in cash prizes to encourage folks to raise money for their favorite “American Hero” nonprofits during the Memorial Day and Independence Day holidays.


The challenge is taking place over on the CrowdRise platform. Fundraising teams participating in the Vets Charity Challenge 2 will compete to raise the most money for their org and win additional cash prizes for their causes.

The nonprofit that raises the most money by the end of the Challenge will receive a $20k donation that I’m giving on behalf of the Veterans Charity Challenge 2.  Second place will receive a $10k donation, and third place will receive a $5,000 donation. An additional $15k in Bonus Challenges will be given to participating nonprofits over the course of the campaign.

I just think if someone’s willing to serve and even risk their life for me, I should give back. And it’s not only those who serve, it’s also family members who give up a lot for all of us. This challenge is for the folks who really have their boots on the ground, and who’re creating real change.

So far there’s more than 60 charities signed up for the challenge. Any nonprofit organization benefiting veterans, military personnel, police, fire fighters or their families can sign up to participate in the Challenge until June 6. Note: after June 6, individuals can sign up to raise money for organizations, but no new orgs can participate.

I’d really appreciate it if you’re able to give back. This is the real deal, and it’s important to help out. I’ll be keeping you updated about winners and the important work they’re doing throughout the challenge.

Visit the Veterans Charity Challenge 2 to either donate to your favorite charities, register to participate, or sign up to fundraise for an org you’re passionate about.

One thought on “We’re Giving $50k to America’s Heroes Right Now

  1. I think this is a very good idea for the veterans. They really do deserve it. They have once fought for us and got wounded or either got killed fighting for their country which we live in. The least we could do to show our respect is to host an event in honor and appreciation of our veterans. To all the veterans around the U.S, Thanks again for all the hard work and time that you have put into this country. Our veterans fought very hard all the time, and sometimes harder than other’s. They put their existing lives, family and friends on hold just to go and fight for a bunch of strangers. That’s what I call dedication and love. I’m saying thanks, not only for paving the way for the future veterans, but for all the people who have passed along too. May God bless you and keep you in perfect peace and harmony.
