The American Legion is teaming up once again with racing superstars Jimmie Johnson and Tony Kanaan on Giving Tuesday. Donations to the Give 48 Challenge fund life-changing, even life-saving, programs and services that directly impact the lives of veterans.
American Legion National Commander Paul E. Dillard is calling on members, veterans, their families and other supporters to contribute to the goal of raising $248,000 during this campaign.
“Because we want to do even more for our veterans this year than ever before, we must raise $248,000 to reach all our nation’s servicemen and women in need,” Dillard said.
Johnson is doing his part to raise awareness. On Tuesday morning, he is scheduled to appear on CBS Mornings at 8:15 a.m. Eastern to discuss his involvement with the challenge, how The American Legion improves the lives of veterans and more.
Dillard is encouraging donors to give $48, a reference to the American-Legion sponsored INDYCAR.
“Your gift of $48 will help provide monetary grants for veterans in financial crisis, supply wounded warriors with essentials to help throughout recovery, assist in getting veterans the benefits they have earned and more,” he said.
Gifts of any amount to the Give 48 Challenge will support life-changing programs and services that directly impact veterans’ lives. You can make a tax-deductible donation here.
