It’s that time of year when we salute the fantastic militaries all over the world that keep us safe and free from tyranny. Everyone knows that they deserve much more than just one day of recognition, and it’s an absolute disgrace how some countries in the West treat their heroic boys and girls once they get home.
In short, we should always try to keep these brave souls in our thoughts and vote for political candidates who work to ensure that veterans are always treated with respect and have access to the resources they both need and DESERVE once they’re back on home soil. There have been a tremendous amount of cuts to the funding of veterans’ affairs in both Canada and the United States, and it’s absolutely disgusting. Feel free to contact your senator or member of parliament and tell them exactly how you feel about it. I did and I felt much better afterwards.
We joke around a lot here on this website but you can believe me when I tell you that the one thing that we take 100% seriously is honoring those who serve in the military. Without them, the world as we know it would be unrecognizable and we just want to take a quick moment and say, “THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO“. Every single veteran is a hero and we must never forget that.
So with all of this in mind we would like to do our part and try to get a few extra donations sent to registered charities for veterans this year. This offer is very simple and easy to do: just tweet or email a screenshot of you making a $25 or more donation to any of the charities below and you’ll receive a fantastic gambling package from the Sports Information Network that will improve the quality of your wagers. It includes…
- 1 full week of NFL picks
- 2 full weeks of NBA picks
- And for every 20 donations made we will select 1 winner to receive an NFL Playoff Package
- The satisfaction of knowing that you actually spent money on a good cause for once
That’s it, that’s all. Go donate at least $25 to any of the veterans’ charities below and become a better gambler…if only for a short time. It’s literally win/win, and we promise you that giving money to charity feels great. Oh – and make sure that you don’t tweet out any personal info like your name, credit card number, or anything like that. If you don’t know how to block out a specific section of an image, go on Youtube for 5 minutes and learn Photoshop, you savage. Or ask a Millennial to help you – whatever’s easiest.
For anyone who seriously doesn’t have an extra $25 to donate to this extremely worthy cause, you can still get in on this promotion by taking action as a citizen and a voter. Anyone who tweets us a copy of a letter to their congressman, senator, MP, president, or prime minister demanding increased funding for veterans’ affairs programs will also receive the above gambling package. Don’t hold back on them either – please remind them of how good they have it sitting in their luxurious government offices while the real heroes are out fighting in the trenches.
If we’ve missed a veteran’s charity that you think should be here, simply let us know and if we agree with you we will add it to the list, (we didn’t know which ones were good in other countries…Bermuda? Taiwan? Let us know). It’s actually hard to find a North American registered charity that hasn’t been involved in some type of scandal so we did our best. And it goes without saying, but we are obviously not receiving anything whatsoever from the charities for doing this, or taking any of the money, or doing anything shady whatsoever. We’re just trying to do our small part to raise awareness and funds for veterans’ issues.
Now go give a few bucks and feel better about yourself – it really does feel good to donate.
Freedom isn’t free.
