Veterans deserve better

by Sumemabi in Gravesend, England, United Kingdom

I currently live in the UK but I was born in Syracuse, NY and lived in Boston for 8 years. Several of my friends served and still serve. It fills me with rage and sadness that these brave veterans have had their lives taken in this wholly avoidable way. Please give anything you can spare to ease their burden. The care workers at the Home do fantastic work but despite the media coverage in April their hands have been tied by lack of funding and support, and a history of poor management decisions.

A percentage of the money raised will go to the families that have lost loved ones, and a percentage to the Home to increase their levels of PPE and cleaning products, to increase their frequency of testing, and help to ensure no further veterans are put in unnecessary danger. None of the money raised will go to the management of this facility. The percentages will be based on what we believe will have the greater effect, but we are open to guidance if you have greater knowledge of the situation.
