Veterans For Peace once again joined the #GivingTuesday campaign, a global day dedicated to “unleashing radical generosity”—countering the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
We set a goal of raising $5,000. Your generosity exceeded our expectations and we raised $6,836!
We don’t like asking for money, but it’s something we are forced to do so we can continue to work for peace and justice. We are so grateful for all the ways in which you have supported Veterans For Peace’s mission, either by showing up in the streets, spreading our message online, or by making a financial contribution.
The efforts of veterans working for peace are needed more than ever and your support helps us continue fighting for a just and peaceful future for all!
If you haven't had the chance to make a donation, but would still like to support our work, you can still make a donation here.
