I’m giving to causes that support war veterans this weekend in honor of Memorial Day.  Yesterday, I donated to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of War. Today, $10 goes to Paralyzed Veterans of America. 

PVA supports paralyzed veterans in all aspects of their lives from fighting for health care (how horrible that there’s even a fight involved), helping them find careers, and even training them to play wheel chair-adapted sports. 

The ultimate goal is to find a cure for paralysis, but until then, PVA will continue advocating for “a barrier-free America,” as it states on PVA’s website, as well as “help veterans with disabilities get a fair shot at the American Dream, a good job at a good company.”
