FIVE PUBLIC MISCONCEPTIONS

 

Our research show that only 1% - 3% of public gives to veteran causes!

 

Typically people list colleges, medical causes close to  the donor, arts, youth, and others before mentioning “vets”  if they do, at all  -- other than buying a $1.00 Poppy.

 

We conducted interviews with people screened for being annual contributors to charities in the following cities:

 

Los Angeles  |  Santa Barbara  |  Columbus  |  Cleveland  Minneapolis  |  Newark  |  Omaha  |  Austin  |  Orlando Kansas City  |  Syracuse  |  Memphis  | Wilmington NC

 

Research shows that the American public…

1.  thinks that the federal government covers all the needs of disabled veterans...

2.  is confused about veterans organization -- VFW, American Legion  AmVets, DAV, VA, etc...

3.  has a poor image of veterans due to media coverage of homelessness, drugs, etc...

4.  is unaware of the plight of many disabled veterans and their families... and

5.as a whole, does not contribute much to veterans organizations as a % of total giving.

 

According to our research, if the American public knew the truth about the plight of the disabled veterans, they would become more involved in veteran causes.

 

The question is .“How to best remedy this situation?

We believe that the answer is a series of documentary leading to annual national telethon.

 

Documentaries Tell It As It is

Moving images move people.

First party narrations trump voice-overs.

 

Based on experience, we know 1) that the true picture of the disabled veteran’s situation cannot be told through print… 2) that the disabled veterans’ /survivors’ stories cannot be told through third persons… 3) the public must to see first-hand the true story and become involved.

 

The BEST WAY to accomplish this effectively is through a series of truthful, hard-hitting, emotional documentaries.

 

Once created, the documentaries will become the FOCAL POINT of the  national telethon the goals of which are to build  Awareness | Perception | Preference | Commitment to the support of our charitable veteran causes
