    Great cause to support wounded veterans. I just wish that they would use another group to do so. Wounded Warrior has been proven to be a fraud over and over again, yet people continue to donate to them. There are so many better organizations out there to give too for supporting wounded vets.

    I hear ya. They've definitely had their problems. My understanding is that after they fired two problematic executives in 2016, WWP got back on track and started doing a better job of spending its funds on veterans instead of employees. They've currently got three stars out of four from Charity Navigator and an overall score of 86 out of 100. The top-rated veterans charity is the Gary Sinise Foundation, which scored 97/100.

    As Vietnam era Vet I feel that Wounded Warriors needs to do way better then they are to make up for the years of using Veterans to get rich. Firing a couple of scape goats and changing their ways isn’t enough.
    On the other hand $10. For a chance at a Yater would be nice. Wonder if they would trade that board for a Spoon?

    It was on their IG page. I bought a couple tickets myself. Unfortunately, I didn’t win. I didn’t recognize any of the winning names. I tried to find it again to post here, but don’t see it now.

    It's weird that all mention of this raffle and the winner was seemingly scrubbed from true Ames social media and website....
