We need to remember every day the sacrifices made by those who have fought and are currently fighting for our freedoms. Wars can change many things, including those who fight in them.
Bellefontaine, OH (PRWEB) April 8, 2009
Three former United States Marine Corp veterans have announced the launch of E-Vets.com, a new online classified ad web site where everyone can buy and sell goods, with 15% of the total profits going to organizations that support America’s military forces and veterans.
In the Internet age, people have more ways to purchase and sell merchandise than anyone ever dreamed of. But with so many great choices, people are looking for a reason to use one over the others. The recently launched E-vets.com provides that reason by donating 15% of all profits directly to charitable and non-profit organization that support U.S. troops and military veterans.
E-Vets.com is exactly like other online classified advertisement sites. Anyone – veterans, enlisted servicemen or non-military citizens – can put unwanted merchandise and goods up for sale, with someone else eager to become the rightful owner. Like other online classified sites, E-vets.com allows users to type in a search for a specific item or break down by categories such as automobiles, collectibles, or real estate to name just a few.
But E-Vets.com provides an opportunity that no other classified online ad site can boast: the ability to benefit organizations that support American troops and veterans. E-Vets.com donates 15% of the total profits to organizations who support military personnel.
To show the importance of donating money to these groups and causes, E-Vets.com has decided to give 100% of all profits from weekly advertisements from April 1 to April 20, 2009.
Jim Parker, former Marine and current CEO of E-Vets, said: “We need to remember every day the sacrifices made by those who have fought and are currently fighting for our freedoms. Wars can change many things, including those who fight in them.”
E-vets.com is a proud supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project and raise funds for their organization.

E-Vets.com is an online classified advertisement site that donates 15% of total profits to organizations that support United States military and veterans. The site was started by three former marines: One honorably served this country for ten years, one a veteran of Desert Storm, and the other a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Being veterans, they know first hand the hardships of being in the military and the effects it has on the family and friends of the service member. Wars may begin and end. But, unfortunately, for too many who serve in them, they may never be the same. The three veterans came up with the idea for E-vets as a way to help fellow veterans, showing them that they have not been forgotten and neither has everything they have done and are doing for this great country.
