♦The 22 A Day (the suicide rate of Veterans) is something we take seriously and will always strive to make [virtually] ZERO. We have the DV Farm as well as Objective Zero that we work with, closely, among other organizations that combat the 22 A Day. After having DV Radio to listen to, if this is not enough, we use these resources among others to turn to for those in need. We will help them, monetarily or otherwise, with some of the funds through sponsorship as we try to do so every so often.
♦Other than what you see listed, DV Radio tries to help Veteran small-businesses, nonprofits, and organizations through the year. Sometimes we help those whose family is in a time of hardship while other times, we donate an amount of money to help them grow. (IE: DV Farm, Change Unchained, Backpacks For Life to name a few.) We also have brothers & sisters that we help when they need it–you may never hear of us helping those individuals but they are our family and we want to see them succeed. There’s times in life that you need a helping hand, sometimes we’re that helping hand and we’re more than proud to help our family.
♦If DV Radio is able to sustain itself with sponsorships, it will grow into much more than what you hear and see. Although we do not care to make money (for ourselves), we would love to pay our staff so that they can quit their daily 9-5 jobs and focus on what matters most—this could be family, growing their own business or nonprofit, or something that they haven’t been able to step into that has been a dream for years. We also have shows that will partake in the use of actors (voice-overs) and we hate asking anybody to do anything for free, your sponsorship can and will go towards their checks as well.
♦There are also times that we help our local communities whether it’s in Alaska, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas, New Hampshire or wherever our staff may reside. It could be a school, a foodbank, a church, or some other local institution that needs help and if we can help make a difference, we most certainly will. All of these, outside of paying DV Radio’s Staff, will always come first and foremost.
