Military. Soldiers. Strength. Freedom. How do those words make you feel? Do you have friends or fam who have fought for their country? If so, we don’t even know them but can say without measure that we appreciate their selflessness.
Whatever it is that moves someone to fight for the rights of people they’ve never met is enigmatic at best, and something The Juice Standard honors so deeply that this month, when we were looking to put our philanthropy where our heart is, we chose Wounded Warrior Project. You’ve probably seen the ads on TV or at McCarran: it’s the national org that started as a program to provide comfort items to soldiers who returned home wounded from their tours in Afghanistan in Iraq, and it’s morphed into a full-on, long-term assistance effort supporting any wounded service member as they acclimate to post-military life.
Here’s the deal: In May, for all you beeautiful juicers who are already so good about recycling your glass Singletons for $1, we’ll happily welcome you to donate your buckeroo to our collection for the Wounded Warrior Project cause. By month’s end, we’ll donate in the name of the company from every thoughtful dollar given.
Think about it: Strange countries and scary places. Building camaraderie with folks who might not make it. Danger. The unknown. And for what?
Not for what. For whom. And by for whom we mean for us.
Whether their need is mental, physical or spiritual, once soldiers come home we beelieve in taking care of them beecause they’ve long taken care of us. That’s why we’re proud to support Wounded Warrior Project this month. Hope you will be, too.
