We've Got Your 6
There are many unmet needs for service members, and many charities go unnoticed. However, they provide a valuable service to Veterans. Every time we sell a bottle of Big Stick, much needed resources go directly to our military heroes.
Every time we make a new donation, we will list the charity’s website here with a link to donate directly. Please join us and and support these valuable organizations.

K9S For Warriors
Determined to end Veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors provides highly trained service dogs to military Veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, and/or military sexual trauma. With most dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows service dogs and Veterans to build an unwavering bond, which in turn facilitates their collective healing and recovery.
Warrior Surf Foundation
The Warrior Surf Foundation was established by American Combat Veterans and surfers in May of 2015 on Folly Beach, South Carolina. Through surf therapy, yoga, wellness sessions, and the surrounding community, the Warrior Surf Foundation addresses post-service transition challenges including PTSD, moral injuries, survivor’s guilt, and traumatic brain injuries.
The Foundation strives to enhance the psychological and physical well-being of Veterans, active service members, and their families through the surf therapy program. Over the course of the 12-week clinic, participants gain the incredible experience of surfing, along with valuable skills that can be incorporated into their daily lives to create sustainable healing. Those who successfully complete the surf therapy clinic are given the opportunity to serve as mentors to incoming participants as well as receive training in behavioral health awareness.
Camp Hope PTSD Foundation
The PTSD Foundation of America seeks to bring hope and healing to combat Veterans and their families suffering from the effects of combat-related post-traumatic stress. Through Camp Hope’s intensive residential program, they can accomplish this mission by taking on a whole-person approach.
As an interim housing facility, Camp Hope offers a minimum of a six-month program that includes a two-month transitional program. This residential program includes peer-to-peer mentoring; individual mentoring sessions with certified combat trauma mentors; small group interaction activities, such as camping, fishing, and sporting events; and opportunities to connect with local churches, businesses, and volunteer organizations. Camp Hope’s programs and services are offered free to Veterans, so the focus remains on their journey to healing.

Through these trainings, Veterans are given the opportunity to foster community and pursue a healthier lifestyle, both mentally and physically. The We Defy Foundation seeks to empower Veterans through integrity, discipline, personal accountability, mental and physical development, improved coordination, adaptability, confidence, patience, and selfless service.
