You know your fundraising donations go to support the EOD Warrior Foundation which serves the families of wounded, ill, and fallen EOD Techs. But you might not know what that support looks like.
Following is an excerpt from The Blaster News, Quarter 3 newsletter from EOD Warrior Foundation about one area of support.
We had the pleasure of hosting twelve EOD Caregiver Spouses in the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee in August for a memorable healing retreat.
This was the second retreat of its kind, partnering once again with with the like-minded nonprofit Courage Beyond. Their team works collaboratively with ours to formulate a retreat specifically addressing the needs and wants unique to each group. Miracle workers we are not , rather conversation starters, a safe space for each attendee to share her story, listening, and providing tools for these women to take back home.
The sole purpose of the retreats is to provide time for our participants to process how their lives have been impacted by their partners going to war. We strongly believe that bringing people together who have shared many of the same challenges. and providing them with an opportunity to express their frustrations, pain and struggles, allows them to they are not alone in this journey. That knowledge alone provides an incredibly powerful sense of relief.
