From the Josh Dunne Organization, Mission Ready! We would like to wish all our supporters and followers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
This first year has gone by so quickly and we have accomplished so much. We look forward to the New Year and all the events we have in mind. We plan to connect more with the community and meet some of our veterans and other organizations who support veterans. Networking is such an important part of succeeding in our mission and we hope you can be a part of the events we have planned for the new year.
Take time to relax, do some self-care for yourself, be kind and respectful towards one another, make a commitment to do an act of kindness this holiday season, and spread joy to others. We know the holiday's can be rough for many, but let's remember that no one is ever truly alone in their sorrow and you can make through rough waters.
With love and respect,
The Josh Dunne Organization, Mission Ready!
P.S. check out some awesome pictures from a BBQ hosted by the organization to share with veterans in honor of Josh's one year anniversary since his passing.
The Josh Dunne Memorial Scholarship Campaign is Successfully Completed!
Happy Easter, from our family to yours!
The Josh Dunne Organization, Mission Ready! and New Mexico State University have collaborated to create the Josh Dunne Memorial Endowed Scholarship. Together we are on a mission to raise funds to award at least two NMSU veteran or dependent students who are entering into a social service field. Your donation will greatly impact and relief financial burdens for student veterans and their family working to achieve a higher education, it is also tax deductible!
Scholarship Update, From Isabella and Mom.
Please keep sharing our mission to reach our goal of $10,000 to provide a student veteran and/or their dependent with a scholarship in honor of my husband, Josh Dunne, USMC.
This week Jonah and I did an interview with NMSU news that will be out soon, we will share that update with you as it is our first step in achieving our next mission of PTSD awareness - of course in hopes of achieving our scholarship goal also. I want to thank each and everyone of our donors so far, this has been amazing to see. I wake up every morning and check our campaign to see the progress we have made, I am so grateful for our friends and family who have shared, for the students who have donated and everyone who is beginning and continuing to keep Josh's good memory alive.
I know Josh is here and I know we all are making him proud that his mission in life of helping other veteran's continues to live on!
Have a great weekend!
What is an endowment?
An endowed scholarship means that we will be able to annually award at least two students with a scholarship in a social service field. This permanent fund means that we will have the leisure of not fundraising every year to award our recipient(s); thus we can focus on choosing the right candidates and celebrating their success and efforts to further pursue their education. The following requirements for our students are that they be a full time or part time student, undergraduate or graduate level, veteran or dependent of, in the field of social work, criminal justice, or public health. Our scholarship is housed within the Military and Veterans Program on campus where we will be assisted with filtering applicants through NMSU's scholar dollars.
Thank You, Senator Morales!
