I had this post from Springer Precision in my Facebook feed today: "We will also be directing our giving directly to those in need instead so we insure the most benefit for those who need it and not for those who administrate a cause." It was in reference to this post from Thunder Ranch: "Official: Thunder Ranch will no longer be doing any fundraising for Wounded Warrior. This due to the main reason is they will do not want support from the guns period because guns are used by our military to kill themselves. What do they save themselves with? Nerf guns? Also the fact that very little of our money is actually getting to the families that need them. We will find charities in the coming months to help us all give but for now all money raised with our current DVD sale will go to our Seal team family... the Reece Petersen Trust fund. Thank you as always for your support. We will continue to do the best job we can to put as much money as we can to helping our military. Clint and Heidi" Per WWP website (#19 of Proud Supporter FAQ's): "WWP fundraisers can not be sexual, political or religious in nature, and cannot be partnered with alcohol brands or the exchange of firearms. This messaging conflicts with our mind, body, and spirit approach to programs. As everyone is aware, alcohol and substance abuse have been a significant problem with segments of the Wounded Warrior population, often with deadly consequences. WWP would not be honoring and empowering Wounded Warriors if the warrior population perceived partnerships with these types of events as encouraging the use of products that contribute to that problem." I don't pretend to be an expert on non-profits, tax exempt statuses, charities or anything at all for that matter, but I read somewhere that to maintain their tax-exempt status (?) they cannot take any side of any political matter. Others have said it's in their best fund-raising interests to go right down the middle as to not turn anyone off. I've read other complaints from people upset that they will take their money but not support the firearms industry. My opinion is that it's not their job to support anyone other than just what their name says, Wounded Warriors. If I was trying to raise as much money as possible I wouldn't take sides either and I wouldn't expect my donation to warrant any sort of endorsement. I have several friends who are still active duty who have nothing but good things to say about what WWP is doing. That's good enough for me.
