Burpees for Vets challenge

Submitted by Ruth Montz,

With Veteran's Day coming up so soon I have a charity proposition that everyone can partake in (Veterans, Active-Duty Military, Dependents, Family, Friends, etc.).  

Burpees for Vets​ is a challenge like the Ice Bucket Challenge by ForPurpose.  Donate $11, film yourself doing burpees for 11 seconds and then challenge 3 other people.  Perhaps, either you or someone you know has had a hard time getting out of the military. The money that's donated from this BurpeesForVets Challenge goes to vets transitioning from active duty to the civilian world.  From non-profits for mental health wellness to workforce development, ForPurpose is donating to various organizations for the benefit of veterans.  You can find any further information on their website

An Ohio State student, Jack Considine, is partnered with this organization to get veterans any extra help they need. . 

Both Givelist Foundation and Legacy Global Foundation, Inc. are an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity as described in the Internal Revenue Code Sections 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1), and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi). All money and property transferred to The #BurpeesForVets 2021 Fund and The Veteran Transition Fund is tax deductible as allowed by law, and shall be deemed an irrevocable gift to the charity.  All proceeds are allocated exclusively toward the mission of the Fund, including charitable grants distributed to other veteran-related nonprofit organizations.
