CP+B and Elder Heart Launch Mission 22 Campaign to End Veteran Suicide


By usfndns / / CP+B has announced the launch of Mission 22 — a project dedicated to raising awareness around the devastating fact that 22+ United States military veterans commit suicide every day as a result of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. Mission 22 was created by CP+B and non-profit veteran organization Elder Heart to educate the public and ultimately affect change. Mission 22 is a call to action — enlisting everyone to “claim a 22” on buses, street signs, jerseys, racecars and anywhere a 22 is found — in order to raise awareness and enlist an army of civilians to show that we support our veterans and want to put an end to this tragic statistic. To participate, people can simply post a picture of themselves with the number 22, post a picture of a 22 or any type of acknowledgement that they know what 22 means on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #Mission22. The campaign launches today with a powerful online video, recounting how for many veterans, the end of combat does not bring an end to the pain, fear or stress that comes with war.
