THANK YOU! You helped us raise $30,546 for Mission 22 over the course of Memorial Day Weekend!
Lazarus Naturals has supported veterans and their families from day one, through our assistance program and veteran community engagement. With your help, we are taking that support one step further this Memorial Day weekend.
From Saturday, May 25 through Memorial Day on Monday, May 27*, ten percent of all gross sales from lazarusnaturals.com will go to Mission 22, a non-profit organization that combats the ever-rising veteran suicide rate.
According to a Dept of Veterans Affairs study, more than twenty veterans are lost to suicide every day. Mission 22 wants to bring that number to zero.
Mission 22 provides treatment programs to veterans for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they might be facing. It organizes events and builds memorials to create social impact and awareness for these issues.
Mission 22 also has an Ambassador volunteer program for people to get involved as well. Ambassadors educate the public on veteran issues, help get veterans into Mission 22 treatment programs and create resources in their communities.
Memorial Day is a time where we honor and pay our deepest respects to the fallen soldiers who made the greatest sacrifice for our nation. Let’s honor those we’ve lost by giving back to those veterans who are still with us and let them know they have an army behind them.
