A little over a year ago our mission of “Aiming for ZERO (Military Suicides)” became TechForTroops: Game Corps’ enduring force. This is the Letter of Intent that started this journey…
I am writing to express my interest in further developing Tech4Troop’s Gaming Initiative: focused on helping Veterans cope with mental health challenges, particularly those that lead to suicide. As an avid gamer and supporter of our nation’s military personnel, I believe that video games can play a significant role in assisting Veterans in managing their mental health and ultimately preventing suicide.
As you may be aware, suicide rates among Veterans are alarmingly high, and it is our responsibility as a society to do everything in our power to address this issue. Through my research and personal experiences, I have come to believe that video games can offer a therapeutic escape for Veterans struggling with PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.
With this in mind, I plan to further establish Tech For Troops: Gaming Initiative that will provide video game consoles, games, and other gaming equipment to Veterans in need. Additionally, we will create a safe online community where Veterans can connect with each other and play games together, providing a sense of camaraderie and belonging that is often lacking in the civilian world.
Our Gaming Initiative will also partner with mental health professionals and other organizations dedicated to assisting Veterans in coping with mental health challenges. We believe that by working together, we can make a meaningful impact on the lives of those who have served our country.
I am passionate about this cause and committed to making a difference. I believe that Tech4Troop’s Gaming Initiative can offer hope, support, and a sense of purpose to Veterans in need. With your support, we can make this non-profit a reality and help to prevent Veteran suicide.
Thank you for considering my proposal. I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you further.
