Press Release: Wounded Warriors Fundraiser This Sunday at Veteran's Isle
Frets Nirvana and US Military Veterans Group announces the sixth of 2014 Wounded Warriors benefits! The fourth year running!
Frets Nirvana, the premier songwriting and guitar artist in the virtual world Second Life and the US Military Veterans Group announce the sixth of the monthly series of Wounded Warriors benefits in Second Life for 2014. This effort is now in it’s fourth year!
Frets Nirvana states: “As a result of the support of many in Second Life this effort raised over $13000 in 2013 for WWP and prior to that $12000 in 2012. 2014 will be the fourth year that we are maintaining this effort and hopefully with all the great support of the artists and others in Second Life we will once again do well. What a great thing it is to help the wounded veterans whose sacrifices allow us the freedom to enjoy things like Second Life.”
More than 50,000 troops have been injured in recent conflicts, many of them suffering traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and severe burns. Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) provides services and programs to ease their burdens and aid in the transition back to civilian life.
Wounded Warriors concerts feature premier Second Life talent monthly at Veteran’s Isle. The concert on June 29, 2014 is scheduled from 5-9 PM PST. Featured artists will be Zak Claxton, Voodoo Shilton, Frets Nirvana and Noma Falta.
ABOUT WOUNDED WARRIORS - Wounded Warrior Project began when several individuals took small, inspired actions to help others in need. The resulting objective was to provide tangible support for the severely wounded and help them on the road to healing, both physically and mentally. What had been initially viewed as a small contribution (compared with what the warriors had sacrificed while serving our country) has become WWP's signature program:"WWP backpacks delivered bedside to wounded warriors." Wounded Warriors program has developed significantly over the last several years to include advocacy, benefits counseling, caregivers retreats, coping/family services, peer mentoring, warriors to work and many other programs for the benefit of United States wounded veterans.
