Welcome to iPods for Wounded Veterans

Formally established in January of 2011, iPods for Wounded Veterans provides iPods, iPads, eReaders and other materials to improve the quality of life for our wounded Veterans. The intensive rehabilitation they require can take months, even years. These materials provide a diversion, easing the boredom and repetitiveness of the rehabilitation and recovery process. Our Class A security clearance allows us to personally deliver these gifts to Military and Veterans hospitals and interact with Veterans and their families one-on-one.

iPods for Wounded Veterans is made up entirely of volunteers - there are NO paid employees. 80% of all funds raised go directly back to the wounded Veterans, with the only expenditures being those necessary to travel to and from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and other Military and Veterans hospitals.

iPods For Wounded Veterans is today making their 13th trip to the military hospitals at Walter Reed in Betheda , MD. and Fort Belvoir, Virginia.  As in every trip the group will be personally delivering Dear Soldier letters from school students, along with new magazines, iPods, Nooks, MP3 Players, tablets, Skull Candy ear buds, headphones and many other electronic items to each of the severely wounded soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen being treated at each of those hospitals.  These continuing trips, made 3 times each year since 2010, are made possible through the generous donations of our many sponsors and supporters, which we are Thankful for.  As an all-volunteer organization (there are no paid members) we leave each hospital having achieved our mission of bringing happiness, words of encouragement, and giving a few hours of joyous relief from the ever-challenging routines of therapy and exceedingly long hospital stays.  We end each trip being more motivated to continue our efforts in preparing for the next trip.


COMMUNITY SERVICE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Volunteers are needed to help in making the red-white-blue bracelets which will be given to the families of severely wounded soldiers during our upcoming trip in October. These bracelets, as shown on our Photo Gallery page, have been a huge hit on past visits to the hospitals. This event takes place on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 PM in Wilmington on dates to be determined. For more information and to volunteer please call Paul Cardello at 603-770-5765.

Ipods for Wounded Veterans is seeking an experienced Media Relations Assistant to help in our community service project.  As our face for Media Relations you will be working with TV, radio and print media, as well as our website and Internet communications.  You will use your writing skills and public relations experience to further our mission of supporting our returning wounded veterans at military hospitals.  Ipods for Wounded Veterans is a 501(c)(3) charity.

For further information on this volunteer opportunity please contact: Paul Cardello, Chairman @ 603-770-5765

We are also looking for volunteers to help in representing the organization, marching and carrying banners in local parades, and fund raising for the wounded soldiers.

Any schools or school districts interested in becoming involved with the Dear Soldier letter writing program should contact Paul Cardello, Chairman at 603-770-5765.
