With So Many Charities Struggling In This Economy, Disabled Veterans Relief Fund Is Thriving With a .99 Cent Fundraiser Program

Disabled Veterans Relief Fund ( today announced its .99 CENT Fundraiser Program, through which anyone can pledge just .99 cents per month to help disabled veterans and their families--and every person who signs up for the fundraiser will automatically be entered into a raffle for a grand prize valued at $25,000.

Highland, Calif. (PRWEB) February 10, 2009 -- As the disabled veterans returning from the Middle East push the total number of disabled vets in the U.S. that is in excess of 10s of thousands and counting, one California non-profit is making it possible for every American to help the men and women who have sustained life-altering injuries in service to their country by just.99 CENTS at a time.

Disabled Veterans Relief Fund ( today announced its .99 CENT Fundraiser Program, through which anyone can pledge just .99 cents per month to help disabled veterans and their families--and every person who signs up for the fundraiser will automatically be entered into a raffle for a grand prize valued at $25,000.

Money raised will be used to further the Disabled Veterans Relief Fund's mission of providing direct and immediate financial assistance to disabled veterans and their children and spouses, as well as to relieve the financial stress families of fallen soldiers face. To that end, funds from the .99 CENT Fundraiser Program will assist disabled veterans in need of reconstructive facial surgery, psychological counseling, housing, disability-equipped vehicles, specialized prosthetic limbs, long-term care in the case of permanent head injuries, daily cost of living, rehabilitation expenses and reeducation programs offered through colleges and trade schools.

"Through the .99 CENT Fundraiser Program, we hope to be able to cover the expenses that currently prevent disabled veterans from having a better quality of life," stated Disabled Veterans Relief Fund president Ron Young. "We are honored to give a hand up to our solders and their families that have been permanently and forever changed by the ravages of war."

To meet their goal of being able to help every disabled veteran, Young and his team decided to get creative. They knew they needed support from as many people as possible, yet they were sensitive to the fact that many families are feeling the crunch of a sluggish economy. Their solution: Ask for just .99 cents--less than the cost of one fast food meal or one latte--per month.

"We wanted to have a fundraiser that allowed anyone to join in and support our troops," Young explained. "We also didn't want to burden people by asking for big donations that they may not be able to afford. So we decided to hold our .99 CENT Fundraising Program. Just about everyone out there can afford to spend .99 cents per month to help out another family."

Those wanting to help through the .99 CENT Fundraising Program can sign up at; Disabled Veterans Relief Fund, which does not hire outside fundraising companies, will then debit the user's credit card for .99 cents monthly. No donation is required to enter the raffle, and those able to give more can choose to pledge a higher amount per month. To learn more, visit Disabled Veterans Relief Fund at
