Despite returning from active duty, many veterans continue to fight depression, unemployment, homelessness, divorce and suicide. The numbers are tough to think about: an average of 18 to 22 veterans committed suicide each day over the course of a 10 year period,according to a 2012 study conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs. 


Growing Veterans is a nonprofit that exists to help veterans reintegrate into civilian society in an active, holistic way. They operate two farms in Washington State where veterans and non-veterans can come together to learn about sustainable agriculture. The produce is sold at farmers markets, which helps build connections between veterans and their communities.  All of this helps to combat the isolation that many veterans experience, providing a welcoming space for camaraderie to grow and healing to happen.

 

At Trayvax, we are grateful for the service the military provides and for the support shown to our company. Some of our staff and  family members are veterans, so it’s personal for us. We would like to show our appreciation to veterans by donating $5 to Growing Veterans each time you buy anOriginal wallet in Jurassic Camo. If you’d like to make a donation directly,click here.

I just purchased my second wallet, the Axis in Black Melonite. As a veteran, I applaud your involvement with organizations that aid returning combat veterans. I would like to become a member of your Collectors Club.
