iPods for Wounded Veterans
Registered Massachusetts 501(c)(3) Corporation
Chairman, Paul Cardello
Who we serve:
Badly wounded U.S. service members from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard.
All have served in the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars and have recently been injured and are receiving treatment at Walter Reid Military Medical Center in Washington, DC and For Belvoir Community Hospital in Fort Belvoir, VA.
Many are single, double or triple amputees, have severe brain injuries and/or suffer from Post traumatic stress disorder.
How we serve them:
We aid their recovery by driving in vans from Massachusetts to the DC area to personally hand deliver iPods, iPads, Nooks, magazines, letters of support from school/children, headphones and more to the wounded.
How it helps:
A rebailitating soldier enjoyes an escape to his favorite song
A bedridden pilot has freedom to connect with loved ones, no matter how far away.
A wounded veteran gets lost in a book, even if he can no longer hold a paper copy.
Complex medical schedules can be managed in the palm of a hand.
When we visit with Veterans: The IFWV team makes 3 trips per year to the DC area, working in between trips to fundraise.
• IFWV is an all-volunteer organization.
• Over 80% of funds raised goes directly to the purchase of electronics and other gifts for the veterans.
• The remaining 20% is spent on costs of driving to the DC-area to deliver the gifts, plus marketing and small administration expenses.
