Wounded Warrior Project(WWP), one of the most dynamic and devoted supporters of U.S. military veterans, recently launched a dedicated on-line auction for one of three finely framed posters signed by all five living U.S. presidents - Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama – marking only the second time in history that five living presidents have signed a common artifact. The auction is powered by the CharityEngine online fundraising platform, which provides secure credit-card processing and advanced features like real-time bidding visibility – all with a seamless design that delivers a consistent WWP-branded visitor experience. Supporters have the opportunity to own this unique piece of history by placing a bid through September 22.
