Free Urns for Vets has launched a critical GoFundMe campaign to support its mission of providing dignified cremation urns, free of cost, to veterans.
Free Urns for Vets, a 501(c)(3) organization based in Huntsville, Alabama, has launched a critical GoFundMe campaign to support its mission of providing dignified cremation urns, free of cost, to veterans. In an urgent call ahead of Giving Tuesday on November 28, 2023, the organization is appealing to the public for donations to meet its year-end goal of $10,000.
Stan Reese, President of Free Urns for Vets, emphasizes the urgency of the situation, stating, "the need for support is at a critical point and every dollar helps. Every contribution we receive goes directly toward fulfilling our mission statement that no current or former service member should be denied an honorable farewell due to financial constraints or lack of immediate family."
Founded in July 2023, Free Urns for Vets has already made significant strides, sending dozens of urns to families in need each month. The popularity of the organization is growing and leaders forecast sending out hundreds of free urns in 2024. However, with rising costs of compliance, production, and shipping, the organization faces financial challenges. The current GoFundMe campaign, standing at $8,725 short of its goal, is a pivotal step in sustaining and expanding operations into 2024.
Your support is more than a donation; it's a tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of our veterans. A small token of gratitude is also offered to donors contributing at least $50.00, including recognition on the donor's list and a Free Urns for Vets window sticker.
"We're not just an organization; we're a community of gratitude, honoring those who've served us," Reese adds. "Join us in this mission of honor and remembrance. Let's give back to those who gave their all for our freedom."
To donate, please visit the GoFundMe campaign at https://gofund.me/fe927a32 or the Free Urns for Vets website at www.FreeUrnsforVets.org. Every dollar counts in ensuring our veterans receive the honor they deserve.
