Stop Soldier Suicide

Today I'm lending out my blog to a really awesome cause. I did not receive any compensation for this post. I chose to share because I have lots of veterans in my life. After reading about the cause, how could I not share? I bought my husband an Air Force tie to wear with his new suit. I'm so excited to see him all cleaned up and looking good AND supporting a great cause!

Suicide Sucks. Over the years I've seen how it severely damages the people left behind. While an active duty Marine I had 2 friends take their own lives. A few years ago my little sister died by her own hand. Yeah - this cause is personal.   I've struggled for years as to how to grieve these losses. But recently I've found my form of release is to use my business to raise funds for causes which I feel are force multipliers for the fight against suicide. I give them a dollar and they stretch it to ten by passionately reaching out and assisting those who need it.

Today I'm looking to bring attention to Stop Soldier Suicide, a group of veteran/active duty volunteers looking to raise awareness of the fact that 20+ vets a day kill themselves and the government isn't doing enough to help them. They are working hard to raise awareness of military suicide and increase the resources available to help veterans in need of help. But they need more resources. That's where we come in.

My team and I are committed to donating $20,000 to help Stop Soldier Suicide reach veterans who are suffering.

To do this I need your help.   Click On The Video Below To Learn About My Story & Why This Matters From now to Veteran's Day (November 11th 2013) I'm selling 400 limited-edition military inspired neckties. All of the profits (and then some) are going right to Stop Soldier Suicide. Each branch of service (Marines, Navy, Army, Air Force) has 100 ties made in it's historic colors, using a classic regimental stripe pattern I helped design. Here is a chance for you to look good & feel great about supporting veterans and active duty soldiers/sailors/Marines/airmen in need.

For each tie sold I am donating $50 to Stop Soldier Suicide. 400 x $50 = $20,000 You do not have to be a veteran to buy these stylish neckties! I know many of you would like to buy them as gifts or have a connection to the military and would like to have one in remembrance of a friend/family member/to add to a collection.

Not in the market for a military necktie? That's cool - but I would greatly appreciate it if you share this page with any veteran/active duty military person who might be interested. Please Note - there is a $30 discount available to all veterans/active duty/military spouses who buy a necktie. Just type the word "military" into the Coupon Code box at checkout! You'll see the discount applied before you purchase.
