Mission 22

DONATION UPDATE:
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.

    Thank you so much for donating to Mission 22. I’m not sure what their organization does but will check it out. I am a disabled veteran that participates with Continue Mission in Utah. They are an awesome organization that facilitates recreations for veterans so we get off the couch and out reducing suicide rates. I love Lazarus Naturals and appreciate your raising awareness.

    I lost my friend, Sgt. April James, 4 years ago this weekend to suicide. She was one of several within her unit who belong to that 22 a day. It is unacceptable. Our veterans deserve better. Thank you for contributing to Mission 22. I’ll be ordering today. Ironically, the oil I’ll be getting is for April’s dog, Scout, who has been with us since she’s been gone. He’s fighting a battle he won’t win, but we will keep him comfortable, and CBD helps with that. And when the day comes, I know April will be there waiting for him. #22toomany 💔

    Thank you Lazarus Naturals for your continuing support of our nations veterans and their families. It is with much respect that I thank you for taking it a step further this memorial day by donating to such a great organization. My husband is an OIF USMC veteran and is 100% service connected disabled due to his war-related injuries. CBD products such as yours have helped him tremendously. His general well being has improved so much. I wish your company continued success.

    – May God bless the memory of those who have fallen for this great nation; that have sacrificed not for glory but for the greater good. We owe them an immeasurable amount of gratitude and respect for their service.

    My father landed at Normandy Beach (Omaha-Dog-Green) on D-Day. He was one who survived. I am a veteran also and proud of my service, however less important than my fathers’. Thank you so much Lazarus Naturals, for your contributions and recognition of our veterans and others in need. Your products really do work for me and many others, I am sure. May you have continued success as a business that really cares about people and provides healing products.

    Having just received my latest Lazarus Naturals order yesterday, I chose to make my donation direct to Mission 22. As a Vietnam Veteran I am proud of Lazarus Naturals for their commitment to all veterans through their Assistance Program and their partnership with the Mission 22 organization ultimately helping more veterans in need. Keep up the good work!

    Can donations to mission 22 still be made via the Lazarus fund raising campaign? Are donations tax deductible either through Lazarus or directly from mission 22?

    Thank you.

    Tom

      Hi Tom. Our recent fundraising campaign with Mission 22 has closed, but we hope to have another in the future. We do still encourage you to tribute to their cause. Donations are tax deductible.
