Veterans and Anonymous members come together to tackle issues facing America’s veterans
MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — A nonprofit, dedicated to helping veterans, is launching amid the excitement of the Big Game. Veterans Anonymous is a nonprofit from the people behind Anonymous, the group known for revealing government corruption and social injustice. From Thursday, February 1 to Sunday, February 4, the group will use a trio of drones and live feed cameras, in and around the festivities, to bring attention to the exploitation of our nation’s heroes.
There are approximately 44,000 nonprofits claiming to serve veterans, but many only make the process of finding support more difficult. Many also aim to profit off of veterans.
Veterans Anonymous is using its background in technology to create a centralized place where veterans can find the information and resources they need. At VA.org, veterans will be able to access a community of support, a database of credible nonprofits, free listings of veteran-owned businesses and the tools to engage in the political process.
The launch of VA.org coincides with the launch of drones over the Twin Cities. The drones give anyone, anywhere a bird’s eye view of the festivities leading up to the Big Game. Five cameras will take you over and into the biggest events, like the Bold North Zip Line, some of the hottest parties and U.S. Bank Stadium right before Sunday’s game. The live feeds will feature ice fishing, snowmobile stunts and music performances by J.Lo, X Ambassadors and more. It can all be watched at SwoopLive.com sponsored by VA.org.
Leading this charge is long-time activist Gregg Housh, who in 2008 played a critical role in launching global protests under the Anonymous banner. “I have a unique set of skills developed over a decade. Now, I am leveraging those skills against one of the most critical and complex problems of our day. Veterans Anonymous uses technical solutions to ensure our veterans are not preyed on and are able to live the lives they deserve.”
Veterans Anonymous is a non-profit registered in Massachusetts. It was formed in November of 2017. It is being run by a small team of technical and entrepreneurial individuals. For more information, visit https://va.org
