(Vocus/PRWEB) April 07, 2011
Launched today, The Mission Continues Challenge asks all Americans to dedicate ten minutes of their time to learn about issues facing veterans returning from Iraq & Afghanistan, tell ten friends about what they’ve learned and donate ten dollars to challenge this generation of veterans to become citizen leaders. You can take the challenge now at http://www.missioncontinueschallenge.org.
The initiative was launched by The Mission Continues, a national nonprofit organization that challenges veterans to continue their service to their country by serving in their communities. The organization provides community service fellowships to wounded and disabled post-9/11 veterans, mobilizes civilians and veterans to improve their communities through service projects and conducts and disseminates research aimed at reshaping the national conversation surrounding this generation of veterans.
The Challenge provides a simple platform for every American to learn about the challenges facing this generation of veterans and their ability to continue their service in our communities. Through engaging videos, short articles and social media tools, all Americans can educate themselves and their networks by taking the Challenge.
