Join The Life Chest Team May 1st through June 30th as we launch our Crowdrise campaign benefitting the All Veteran Group! Our goal is to raise $100,000, which will be used to donate 100 Freedom Life Chests to combat-injured troops and other veterans across the country.
The Freedom Chest was designed with veterans in mind, with the direct input of US Army Special Forces members at Fort Bragg. A Life Chest would provide a place for veterans to store their most meaningful items. A Life Chest is a place for veterans to hold their memories until they’re ready to be shared, and becomes a tangible source of healing and growth.
22 veterans a day commit suicide, which means we lose a hero every 65 minutes. That statistic is something that the All Veteran Group is working to turn around through their Therapy in the Air program, “…[a skydiving program that] helps warriors thrive through post-traumatic growth (PTG). PTG refers to positive psychological change experienced as a result of the struggle with highly challenging life circumstances. Skydiving has an unparalleled sense of freedom mingled with excitement unlike that of any other sport. Therapy in the Air inspires individuals during rehabilitation, reintegration and during the healing process. They assist with helping individuals realize that they have the power to tell new stories that will help them overcome adversity and move forward. Through telling new stories, warriors are able to rebuild a sense of self—to reconstruct an understanding of who they are, their place in the world and what their expectations of the world are.”
Through creating our Crowdrise campaign and partnering with the All Veteran Group, our goal at The Life Chest is to complement the Therapy in the Air program with the donation of one hundred Freedom Life Chests. A Life Chest would serve as a physical manifestation of everything a veteran has accomplished in their life. With a Life Chest, they can store or display their awards, accolades, and other memorabilia collected while defending their country. So much in our modern world is immediate, fleeting, and ultimately, disposable.
The Life Chest is a place of memory and comfort and tells the story of its owner, making it the most soulful product on the planet. They can consciously create their story and construct their legacy while living right there in the moment. A Life Chest allows them to look back on all of the amazing aspects of their lives and to tell their life’s story, while at the same time serving as a bridge for that person’s spirit to continue on even after they have left the earth. There are so many forces in the world that destroy, but we believe in growth, positivity, and above all, the power of the human spirit. Nothing can stand a chance against a human spirit filled with the power and determination of hope. Save a life and leave a legacy… Please donate today to The Life Chest and give our incredible veterans something special.
