#PAINT22 is a non-profit organization bringing awareness to the unsettling fact that roughly 22 veterans commit suicide each day. To bring a more positive outlook, we provide is a free paint event for ALL active duty or veteran military personnel on the 22nd of each month. During the course there will be educational information on how families can support there military husband or wife since the majority of the suicide rate falls among families and not single veterans.
After costs to provide this free servce to our community, 22% of funding raised will go to medical research programs for PTSD and other military activities/non profit organization that are in the same field.
