Fighting on Behalf of Wounded Warrior Project: 11-Year-Old Nicholas Trycieckyj

PHILADELPHIA, March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Since its founding in 2003, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has prided itself on providing free life-changing programs and services to injured veterans, their caregivers, and family members. This is possible because of generous donors from all walks of life. One such donor is 11-year-old Nicholas Trycieckyj, who recently sent a letter and donation to WWP.

"I wanted to support Wounded Warrior Project because they do good things for our nation's soldiers," he explained. "Those soldiers risked their lives for our country, and they need help when they're hurt. Wounded Warrior Project is caring for them, and I wanted to give what I could to help them."

Nicholas raised the money to support WWP entirely on his own. At a recent family birthday party, Nicholas crafted some bracelets that he then sold to relatives and friends. He mailed the money to WWP along with a handwritten letter.

"Some of the people who lost limbs to protect America are just trying to live normal lives again," Nicholas said. "I saw on TV commercials and heard on the radio that they needed help, so I wanted to do something for them. I would tell them 'thank you for your service and for risking your lives to help us.'"

WWP programs and services assist injured veterans with physical health and wellness, career and benefits counseling, connecting with other warriors and their communities, and mental health.  To address the growing needs of warriors who are returning from war with invisible wounds, WWP offers veterans a range of specialized mental health programs and services – all tailored to each veteran's specific needs and free of charge. WWP and its supporters believe warriors already paid their dues on the battlefield, so warriors don't pay for any service they receive.
