GoFundVeterans Press Release
ATLANTA, Sept. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — GoFundVeterans, an innovative crowd based fund-raising platform, is aimed at helping the military community fund their business ideas, personal needs, and medical expenses.
GoFundVeterans offers the ultimate solution for Active Military and Veterans to raise money for their personal stories and goals, and allows compassionate individuals to donate to these causes. As Brett Dahlin, Founder at GoFundVeterans explains, “We are a nation that continuously gives support to those that need it most. We believe that veterans, active military Members, and their families are the backbone of every free society and we want to make sure they are not forgotten. Our platform is dedicated solely to them.”
Individuals donating will have the extra comfort of knowing that each project creator has been verified. GoFundVeterans uses SheerID to verify all users who create a project. SheerID’s service acts as a bridge and can verify the user’s identity and military affiliation within a few minutes.
GoFundVeterans first project features U.S. Army Veteran, Andrew Kroll, who is seeking $13,000 to cover the costs of his tuition, personal laptop, and moving expenses to attend DigitalCrafts 16 Week Immersive Bootcamp to become a software developer.
DigitalCrafts is an accelerated learning program based in Atlanta, also known as a coding boot camp. These accelerated learning programs are full-time and very intensive. Unfortunately, the GI Bill does not pay for these programs. To learn more and donate to Andrew’s cause visit his crowd-funding campaign at https://gofundveterans.com/projects/combat-to-code-school/
