Overstock.com's donations to WWP break $1M

SALT LAKE CITY — Overstock.com's donations to Wounded Warrior Project now exceed $1 million.

In keeping with the company's longstanding commitment to support members of the U.S. Armed Forces, Overstock.com has collected customer donations on behalf of WWP since November 2009.

"It's incumbent upon citizens to assist those who have endured serious injury while serving our nation," said Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne. "Overstock.com's support for Wounded Warrior Project is another manifestation of this company's deep sense of obligation to serve those who have sacrificed their own bodily well-being to ensure ours."

"Overstock.com's support for Wounded Warrior Project has profoundly helped us positively impact the lives of thousands of wounded veterans and their families," said Steve Nardizzi, executive director, Wounded Warrior Project. "Both the funds and awareness raised go a long way in supporting our vision of the most successful and well-adjusted generation of injured service members in our nation's history, and for that we are so grateful."

In addition to the company's direct donations, customers can make donations in support of WWP at checkout.

WWP's purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist one another, and to provide specific, direct programs and services to meet their needs. WWP is a national, nonpartisan organization headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla.
