Invictus Foundation Partners with zuuzs.com to Fuse Philanthropy with Consumerism
SEATTLE, Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Invictus Foundation is pleased to announce it has partnered with zuuzs.com to offer our members a grassroots option for being a part of our vision and mission: Shop & Support Invictus Foundation. Our online shopping is fast, free, and easy.
The Invictus Foundation is creating a national network of locally based operations. We call this funding model Local Nationalizer. We are focusing on behavioral health issues affecting our nation's military members, veterans, their families and families of the fallen that are important to local communities across the country where government alone can't solve the problem. These problems include traumatic brain injury, associated brain injury, suicide prevention, PTSD, alcohol abuse, substance abuse, domestic violence, relationship issues, military sexual trauma, community integration of rehabilitation and aftercare.
The Invictus Foundation has collaborated with zuuzs.com to build a philanthropic funding model that allows for our members to participate in an effort that will contribute to our nation's military, veterans, their families and families of the fallen who have given so selflessly to us and replace despair and disconnectedness with hope, resiliency and recovery for those suffering from the invisible wounds of war. For purchases our members make at their favorite stores on http://shop.invictusfoundation.org, zuuzs.com will make a donation to the Invictus Foundation. Our members get one-stop shopping, hot deals, discount offers, frequent discount and free shipping coupons while simultaneously getting the opportunity to reciprocate the selflessness of our military members, veterans, their families and families of the fallen by the simple act of consumerism at any of the 850+ online retailers.
Invictus Foundation Shopping is offering something different and unique. The fusing of philanthropy and buying power allows those who believe "if we send them, we must mend them" to help these men and women heal from psychological trauma and empower them to regain control of their lives. Importantly, with the same prices and discounts they would receive if they went directly to their favorite online retailer, members receive the additional benefit of knowing that with each purchase a donation is being made to the Invictus Foundation for the benefit of military members, veterans, their families and families of the fallen. You can check out the shop by visiting http://shop.invictusfoundation.org. Log in through Facebook or email, and be on your way to Invictus Foundation members-only deals.
