Welcome Home Warriors with Love and Honor
Veteran Rites is passing our Winter Warrior Gift Basket to raise $6,000 from AS MANY HANDS as possible by December 31st. In order to equip (4) Rite of Return ceremonies in the wilderness and over a hundred in-person and online Circles of Return in 2021, we are calling on our community!
Once a season, we will reach out all touched by this mission and EVERYONE they know to place their blessing and $10 in it, as a symbol that they are supported by all HANDS in the community.
Supporting community can place their offering here, at the Veteran Rites donate page, or directly through paypal at www.paypal.me/veteranrites.
Veteran Rites initiates Veterans into Whole Identity, Purpose, and Belonging after military service so they and their loved ones can enjoy the future worthy of their sacrifice. Through ceremonial Rites of Return in the wilderness and Circles of Return in society, we heal the veteran soul with non-medicated solutions that provide lasting freedom from the invisible wounds of military service.
We are on the front lines of Veteran Suicide Prevention by providing a true rite of passage for warriors suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress, Moral Injury, Military Sexual Trauma, Isolation, and Suicidal Ideation.
One Circle and One Ceremony at a time, we can prevent further casualties of war on American soil. This is the responsibility of a whole nation. To do this, we need all hearts and hands in the movement to welcome our warriors home with Love and Honor.
It Takes a Whole Community for a Warrior to Heal
We invite you to bear witness to the testimony from the hearts of the veterans that have healed through Veteran Rites at www.veteranrites.org/donate.
With ALL HANDS in the gift basket, in whatever amount, we are all meeting our warriors outside of the village as they return from war. We are a whole community standing shoulder to shoulder in reverence for all that our warriors carry for and all of who they are. We become part of the story that heals our warriors, their loved ones, and all of us.
Please place your blessings in the gift basket as able. This is how we grow our family. Then we will come back and bear witness to the incredible stories and wisdom our veterans gift to us. As one community. As it should be. Together in wholeness.
Thank you for being in circle with us.
We love you no matter what.
