“Veteran Organization Warrior Ranch Raising $25,000 through Dogecoin Cryptocurrency.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Warrior Ranch, a veteran-led organization helping heal veterans who are in need, announced that they have launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise $25,000 through the cryptocurrency Dogecoin.
The “Doge 4 Warriors” campaign can be viewed at Doge4Warriors.org. Warrior Ranch’s main objective is to help veterans heal and recover from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and substance abuse through outdoor programs and meditation/mindfulness practices. These funds will also help Warrior Ranch to train veterans to become “Warrior Healers” — veterans who are trained in mindfulness practices and can lead groups in their own communities.
Dogecoin is a virtual currency based on Bitcoin and the cute but bizarre Shiba Inu “doge” Internet meme. The Dogecoin community is known for its welcoming and charitable members, called “shibes.” They recently completed a fundraiser for charity:water, and have given full sponsorship to NASCAR driver and fellow shibe Josh Wise #98.
Warrior Ranch founder Rob Marshall said the spirit of the Dogecoin community inspired him to use the cryptocurrency for the fundraising campaign.
“It’s exciting to be raising money with Dogecoin,” Marshall said. “The Dogecoin community is what really sets it apart from everyone else. It’s a very giving community, a community that is geared towards helping bring change and peace within the world. It aligns with what we are doing here with Warrior Ranch. As we say in the Dogecoin community, ‘to the moon!’”
