Tweet To ReMIND and Support Our Wounded Warriors

Tweet To ReMIND is a Twitter celebration of support for the United States service men and women created by the Bob Woodruff Foundation, Through donating dollars and tweets they aim to demonstrate the power of the social media by raising $1.65 Million dollars by Memorial Day, May 25, 2009. By focusing on the physical and psychological wounds of war, the Bob Woodruff Foundation is ensuring our heroes return home to the assistance they need to successfully integrate back into society.

More often than note, the injuries we can see are coupled with the injuries we cannot. Hidden injuries, by their very nature, routinely go unnoticed. The Bob Woodruff Foundation is bringing these hidden injuries to light, so that they can care for all our wounded—and address all of their wounds.

1.65 million U.S. service members have been deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq since 9/11. More than 35,000 service members have been physically wounded. It is estimated that more than 320,000 have sustained traumatic brain injuries and more than 300,000 have psychological wounds.

Tweet to ReMIND empowers Twitter users to donate dollars and tweets in service of our injured service members, veterans and their families so they received the local support and resources they deserve as they heal and reintegrate into their communities.
