Help train veterans to provide disaster response.

After fighting two wars abroad, America's newest generation of veterans are returning home to a range of issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), survivor's guilt, depression and suicide. Despite years of training and experience, vets must also contend with higher-than-average unemployment rates, making it difficult to find a sense of purpose or community during their transition back into a civilian lifestyle.

GreaterGood.org partners with Team Rubicon to repurpose veterans' existing skills—emergency medicine, risk assessment and mitigation, teamwork and decisive leadership—to solve another need: more effective disaster response.

Following each disaster, people around the globe rally to donate money, food and supplies, but organizations don't always have the volunteers or expertise to put these resources into action. Since natural disasters present many of the same complications as a combat zone, such as unstable populations and limited resources, Team Rubicon steps into this vacuum, uniting military veterans with experienced medical professionals to provide targeted and effective first response in crisis situations.

 "Team Rubicon is nothing but pure joy and happiness and it took me out of a dark place. The continuing of service is the best part about it.” — Richard- Veteran and member of Team Rubicon

 

You can help! Your donation simultaneously addresses two distinct problems, providing disaster relief and veteran support. Donate today.


Team Rubicon's primary mission is to provide disaster relief between the moment a disaster happens and the point at which conventional aid organizations respond. This "gap" is the crucial window following a disaster when victims have traditionally been without outside aid. Since its creation in January 2010, Team Rubicon has impacted thousands of lives — in Haiti, Chile, Burma, Pakistan, Sudan, and here at home, in Vermont, Maryland, Missouri, and Alabama, reaching victims outside the scope of traditional aid organizations. 


100% of your Gift That Gives More™ donation will go as a charitable gift to GreaterGood.org. GreaterGood stores pay the credit card transaction fee, so every cent of your donation goes to charity.

GreaterGood.org has ultimate authority and discretion with regard to the distribution of its funds. All expenditures made are consistent with the exempt purposes of GreaterGood.org.
