Get To Know: Operation Warrior Wishes
What is the purpose of Operation Warrior Wishes?
Our mission is to make warrior wishes come true by honoring, inspiring, and empowering wounded veterans by providing them unique once in a lifetime experiences at what started as all 32 NFL stadiums in 1 (17 week) season. We hope to break into baseball, basketball, hockey, concerts and NASCAR in the upcoming years and become a “make a wish” type organization for veterans and wounded veterans, plus in the process build a friendship and become another line of support for our nations heroes. Too many heroes are losing the battle to PTSD. We need to offer these veterans more support and not only inspire the warriors but also inspire our nation to help too!
How does Operation Warrior Wishes fulfill this purpose?
Over the past 14 months father and so co-founders Matt and Craig have teamed up to honor over 300 warriors at over 75 events including over 60 NFL games. We meet the warriors in the morning or afternoon as complete strangers & use football/sports/events as a tool to get them out of the house to enjoy a game watching their favorite team taking the field. We do whatever we have to do to try to go above and beyond to make each experience unique & full of once in a lifetime memories that these warriors will cherish for the rest of their lives. Our goal is to get field passes at each game we attend, some of the best seats in the house, and we hope to get the guys to meet some of their favorite players before & after the games. While making “warrior wishes” come true we also build a friendship. We do our best to keep in touch with all of the men and women we take and become a source if support for them. We have literally “changed lives” by getting warriors to games and making warrior wishes come true!
How would Operation Warrior Wishes benefit from and/or use additional monetary support?
It’s simple, the more donations we receive, the more veterans we are able to get out of the house to enjoy an event and make more warrior wishes come true! Matt and Craig don’t get paid to make warrior wishes come true. Rather, it’s is a passion of theirs. Best of all when you make a donation to our organization you can follow us on social media and via our website to see your donations in action! Making warrior wishes come true is a collaborative effort, and together we make warrior wishes come true! Our goal is to one day have veterans at every stadium for every sport and give back as much as we possibly can!
