Thousand Word Project was started as a way to give back to the Wounded Warrior / Disabled Veteran community. The old saying is :a picture is worth a thousand words." Well, we can't say THANK YOU enough times to our men and women in uniform; including our emergency workers.
As a full time caregiver to a retired disabled veteran, I understand that many families are busy with life and having family portraits are the last thing on their minds. So this is a way for me to give back to the community that help my family when my family was going through combat injuries.
TWP sets up a few days a year where families of disabled veterans / wounded warriors and emergency workers can get their family portraits done without any cost to them. Yes, you read that right. There is no cost to any of our families who come out.
Another thing that we hope to accomplish is the comradeship that comes with the military life. When you live close to a military base, you have a lot of others around who understand how military life is. But once you become a civilian again and move away, you lose some of that. So we want you to come and hang out with us and meet local veterans and their families.
So who can join TWP and have their portraits done? All of our veterans and their families. Also included are our men and women who serve on the front lines now in our hometowns. Police, fireman, and other emergency responders.
Our veterans serve this country on the true front lines and continue to serve today. Police officers and other emergency workers keep us safe here in our homes on a daily basis and we owe all of them for serving us.
