Ames Brothers owners presenting a check to Tom Bungert

Ames Brothers http:amesbroshop.com is a clothing and graphic design store located in Seattle. They recently took it upon themselves to help raise funds for the Northwest Paralyzed Veterans of America.

As they were putting together a sales promotion for Memorial Day weekend the owner said, "It would be great to give a portion of the proceeds to an organization that can do some good for our veterans." They eventually found the Northwest Paralyzed Veterans of America, as the owner was familiar with our organization in his home state of Montana and thought of us because his business is located here in Seattle.

On June 17, 2015, Aaron Hasting and our President, Tom Bungert met with founders/designers/business partners Barry Ament and Coby Schultz, and Ames Bros CIO, Brandon Hunter, at their Seattle office. They showed us all the amazing graphic designs they produced for many legendary rock bands, large corporations, professional sports teams and other organizations. An instant bond was formed and we are looking forward to working together on promotional activities and various fundraisers to benefit NWPVA in the future.

The words "Thank You" do not even come close to expressing how much we appreciate what they have done for our organization!


Mobility golf cart donated to NWPVA by Absolute Mobility

Absolute Mobility owners, Eddie and Amanda Rivera very generously donated a new wheelchair accessible golf cart, valued at $15,000, to NWPVA late last year (2015). NWPVA has placed the golf cart at the American Lake VA Golf Course for use by any disabled veteran at no charge.

This wonderful gift is a great benefit to disabled veterans' quality of life by allowing many more to participate in the sport of golf. Over the years, Absolute Mobility has supported, and intends to continue supporting disabled veterans and many other disability groups.

NWPVA is very grateful for Absolute Mobility's continual effort to help improve the lives of the entire disabled community!

Ms. Nelson and Mr. Boyd addressing the NWPVA Board at the January 20th meeting

The Nelson Boyd Law Firm in Seattle initiated a Facebook Share Campaign to benefit NWPVA during the entire month of November 2015. A description of the effort was posted on their Facebook page, and each time anyone shared the post, the firm donated $5.00 to NWPVA.

The goal of $1,000.00 by the end of November was nearly met, with a total of $920.00 raised for our organization! A check was personally presented by Deborah Nelson and Jeffrey Boyd, who were special guests at our January 2016 Board of Directors meeting.

Nelson Boyd is foremost among the many companies and organizations throughout the Northwest whose generous donations enable us to help improve the lives of catastrophically disabled veterans. We are extremely grateful for their wonderful support!!

Our heartfelt gratitude also goes out to each and every one of you who participated in this campaign by sharing the link with others! Your efforts will bring much joy and happiness to those who would otherwise suffer the hardships of their disability to a much greater extent. Thanks to you, the struggles of their daily lives will be greatly lessened.

We know that there are many other well-deserving organizations that could have been chosen for this project, so we are especially thankful that Nelson Boyd chose us!


Tom Bungert and friends at a NWPVA Christmas party

All donations to the Northwest Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America help support catastrophically disabled veterans in many critical ways. One of the most important ways is by providing opportunities to be active.

When a man or woman loses the ability to walk, or function in a normal way, it can be very hard to find the strength to stay positive. It is well known that activity plays an essential role in happiness and well-being, yet the ability to be active is the very thing that these brave warriors have sacrificed so that the rest of us may be free, prosperous and happy.

Involvement in sports and other activities is the best therapy for these seriously injured men and women. NWPVA provides the resources, support and opportunities to make that possible.

A seriously disabling injury also causes loneliness. NWPVA helps veterans to be involved in the community by mentoring children, the elderly and other veterans, advocating for better laws and adherence to the laws in place, and coaching other disabled athletes.

Participation in a team sport helps immensely to eliminate that loneliness and give purpose to a damaged life. The Northwest Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America sponsors many athletes at regional and national events by covering the costs involved and employing medical personnel, including doctors and specialists to be available with expensive, life-saving equipment. Their participation simply would not be possible without NWPVA. Our disabled, veteran members don't get a free ride though. They must be active in the community to earn points toward chapter sponsorship for future opportunities.

Chief among NWPVA's support programs is helping our members attend the National Veteran Wheelchair games. Each year the chapter sends a group of paralyzed veteran athletes to this event. Your donations will help us help them to maintain active and healthy lives!

These Veteran athletes have given their all and now strive to give even more. You can help honor their dedication by making a small donation to get them to the games. Want to do more? You can sponsor an individual paralyzed Veteran completely to insure that he can participate and help his team. To learn how, click here or call the NWPVA offices at 206-241-1843 and let the operator know you want to sponsor a Veteran to the National Veterans Wheelchair Games in 2015, the Winter Sports Clinic or any other National event. Sports activity is the very best therapy for disabled veterans and your support can help to make sure they are able to participate!

Additionally, the chapter maintains a strong Advocacy / Legislation program to ensure that the United States Congress provides sufficient funding for the best medical care possible for all our Veterans. NWPVA advocates on behalf of a veterans at the local, state and federal level for equal rights and opportunities in the job market, equal opportunity for housing, the right to attend college and numerous other basic needs afforded by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Your donation will help us to continue the fight against budget cuts and harmful legislation that threaten the welfare of those who fought so bravely for all of us! Every dollar donated goes directly to helping the members of the Northwest Paralyzed Veterans of America achieve the ability to adapt and overcome obstacles in life and become productive, contributing citizens.

It is only because of your generous donations and selfless support that NWPVA can make any of this is possible. Without your continued help it could all disappear overnight. The Northwest Paralyzed Veterans of America is a a 501c3 charity and all donations are fully tax deductible.

Please give what you can today!
