John Wayne Walding, an SOF veteran, is on a mission with his new company, Live to Give. The enhanced bottle water they produce gives half of the net profits to military supporting charities, as well as first responders and their families. Live to Give has committed to giving minimum donations to each of its three partner organizations – Folds of Honor, Task Force Dagger Foundation and Chive Charities – even if sales don’t quite stack up in the beginning. In support of the first-ever National First Responders Day on Oct. 28, Live to Give has also set up a nationwide digital “thank you” card on Change.org to let everyday people show local heroes their appreciation.
“Never underestimate what ‘thank you’ does for a veteran and what charities do for them and their families.”
