If you’re reading this, you likely already know about the power of a community. Chive Charities and theCHIVE have some of the best and most ardent supporters out there. (We saw that proven again last week when we launched a campaign to create more impact for our veteran, first responder, and rare medical recipients – adding over 155 new donors to our community).
Being part of something bigger than yourself is what it’s all about, and knowing you have a group of people standing behind you who would never let you down…well, that’s difficult to replicate.
It’s something our nation’s veterans struggle with when their time in service ends. It’s easy to understand why. These are men and women who feel called to serve and who knowingly put their lives on the line to honor that calling. Often, they’re deployed overseas in hostile environments for months (if not years) at a time with only their fellow soldiers beside them.
Unbreakable bonds form. Camaraderie is established. Lives are forever changed.
