Whether you are a veteran or a person who cares about veterans, there are many ways to get involved. Explore below to donate to this art project, sponsor an event or explore charities that help veterans.

People sometimes ask which veterans organizations they should donate to. We encourage people to do research and choose those that not only align with a cause you believe in, but to look at those that are managed fiscally responsibly.  Our chosen anchor charity for this project is Semper Fi Fund, although we have supported multiple charities with this initiative. If you would like to make a donation to Semper Fi Fund on behalf of this project, please click here.

Please consider donating your time and talent to a veteran. Volunteer at a veterans homeless shelter. Mentor a veteran transitioning from the military into the civilian workforce.  Or, just grab lunch with a veteran and ask how you can help.  Get creative with how you can personally help. You may be surprised at how far a simple act of kindness can go.

We are now accepting donations to help with the costs of growing this artistic project further.  

This includes the ability to photograph more injured warriors and help cover costs to distribute and share the artwork through community events, such as photography exhibitions and screenings of the film. 

Events include a charitable component to "pay it forward" to other veterans.

This film is part of the broader art series, YOU. ARE. BEAUTIFUL. - a Tribute to Warriors.  The series began in 2012.  Since then, we have been able to share the artwork nationally online and in-person, throughout community events in Boston and on Boston's Northshore. Our community outreach has enabled us to always include a fundraising component to each art exhibition.  To date, the project has proudly supported the charities below.  

Semper Fi Fund was created by Marine Corps spouses who know the needs of military families. They provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post 9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families.

A self-funded program of the Semper Fi Fund, America's Fund is a program created to direct urgently needed resources and financial support to injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. 

The Wounded Veterans Ride in Boston is an annual motorcycle run and benefit which directly helps specific veterans in the community. The charity was founded by a combat veteran and since its inception, the run has inspired growth to other local cities on a national scale.  

The Home Base Program helps heal the invisible wounds of war: post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injuries.  They provide clinical care and support services to Iraq and Afghanistan service members, veterans and their families.

The links below reflect some of the organizations that veterans who appear in the film are involved in.  With the exception of the USMC Wounded Warrior Regiment, we have not had the opportunity to engage with these organizations personally; however, we have learned more about the good work they are doing because of the veterans in this project.
