The Wounded Warrior Project®
To honor and empower Wounded Warriors
A CAUSE WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT
Unimundo supports the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) because when we support WWP you are supporting an organization whose broad appeal reaches across demographic, geographic, and political boundaries. WWP is an apolitical organization by design. For us her at Unimundo, it is not about the war; it is about the warrior.
Who We Serve
WWP serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families.
With advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, an unprecedented percentage of service members are surviving severe wounds or injuries. For every U.S., soldier killed in World Wars I and II, there were 1.7 soldiers wounded. In Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, for every U.S. soldier killed, seven are wounded.
The WWP continuously strives to keep administrative and fundraising costs associated with operation as low as possible. Based on the WWP’s fiscal year 2013 audited financial statements ending September 30, 2013, 80 percent of total expenditures went to provide services and programs for wounded service members and their families.
Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity
The WWP is proud to be a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity. This prestigious accreditation is only given to those nonprofit organizations that meet the 20 rigorous “Standards of Charity Accountability” related to how they govern their organization, the ways they spend their money, the truthfulness of their representations, and their willingness to disclose basic information to the public.
To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history.

To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
Our Core Values
The WWP serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers.
Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events. Sept. 11 also served as a stimulus for Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and New Dawn. Operation Iraqi Freedom refers to military operations in Iraq that began March 19, 2003 and officially ended August 31, 2010. Operation Enduring Freedom refers to combat operations in Afghanistan and other regions in support of the Global War on Terror.
Operation New Dawn refers to the conclusion of operations in Iraq beginning September 01, 2010 and ending December 15, 2011.
For WWP, there is a distinct difference between members and alumni; the term alumni indicates a mutual shared experience and denotes your place in an organization was earned. There are no dues here - those were paid by wearing the uniform and on the battlefield.
How we help
The WWP takes a holistic approach when serving warriors and their families to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement. Through a high-touch and interactive approach, WWP hopes to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history.
