How you can give $500K to wounded vets by doing one simple thing

A person identified by U.S. military personnel as ABC news anchorman Bob Woodruff is carried on a stretcher from a bus to a C-17 Globemaster medical evacuation plane at Ramstein airbase, southern Germany, Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2006 to be brought to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, U.S.

As Veterans Day approaches, the Bob Woodruff Foundation announced it has teamed up with the Love the GIVE campaign, to encourage Americans to honor our nation’s heroes.

They’re asking Americans to share acts of kindness through social media using the hashtag #Give2Veterans.  So, each time that hashtag is used – on any social network -the Bob Woodruff Foundation will receive $1 from Love the GIVE.

Love the GIVE – -run by the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation — will donate up to $500,000 for this campaign, according to the Huffington Post.

Founded in 2006, the Bob Woodruff Foundation helps to enrich the lives of sick and injured veterans, service members and their families.

In January that same year, ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff was critically wounded by a roadside bomb, while covering the war in Iraq. He suffered a traumatic brain injury and was not expected to survive. But after he recovered, Woodruff was determined to help other Americans who were similarly wounded in war.

The Foundation hopes to have at least 500,000 uses of the hashtag #Give2Veterans by the start of their 9th Annual “Stand Up For Heroes” benefit.  The annual event — a night of comedy and music in NYC–will take place this year on November 10.

If every one of Popular Military’s (426,000+) Facebook fans makes just one post we will be pretty darn close to reaching this goal. So please share this story with #Give2Veterans!
