Well.... today I begin my True Patriot Love journey! Recently I was selected to participate in The Douglas Expedition #TPLExpedition Best of Canada series, embarking on a two-week journey with other business leaders and injured soldiers in support of the military, veterans and their families. Before I fill this blog with breath taking photos and inspirational stories from the Northwest, we must take time to learn about the True Patriot Love Foundation and what it does for our veterans.
The True Patriot Love foundation (TPL) is a national charity that honours the sacrifices of the members of the Canadian Armed forces, veterans and their families in both times of peace and conflict. It funds programs and innovative research in the areas of family health and support, physical health and rehabilitation, mental health and wellbeing, research and innovation. TPL is also committed to changing the conversation about our nations veterans, hosting multinational symposiums and organizing ambitious global expeditions.
To date TPL has provided over $14.9 million to charities across Canada and has committed essential funding to more than 67 different programs nationwide that support our service men, women and their families.
I'm challenging myself and YOU through the #TPLExpedition Best of Canada series! I need your help in reaching my personal fundraising goal of $2500. Join me as we raise funds to provide meaningful opportunities to transitioning soldiers. @truepatriotlove. Please click DONATE NOW!
