As you visit family and friends this holiday season please feel free to inject the Foundation into your conversation. You can screen capture this page or download the fact sheet as a reference or for print or email. Encourage them to sign up for our newsletter or attend our next event on January 18th. No matter how you choose to contribute, you can make a difference just by raising awareness.

MISSION          Work Play Obsession: All In Foundation is a veteran owned non-profit organization that leverages recreational therapy in the form of Jiu Jitsu, art therapy, and water based activities (surfing & stand up paddle boarding) to help heal the invisible wounds of trauma. 

VISION             To build a community of inclusivity, familiarity, and understanding for military, law enforcement, and first responders. We serve to act as the bridge between identification and diagnosis of illness or injury as well as a continued support network through treatment and beyond through recovery.    

HOW               Our foundation organizes events to raise awareness and help heal Post-Traumatic Stress, anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideology. We do this through providing recreational activities (Jiu Jitsu, Art, Surfing / SUP) which serve to rekindle team bond, shared sense of purpose, and family. Our passion is people. We build a team that connects human-to-human with no judgement or bias in order to defeat the stigma associated with mental health. 

WHO               With over 60 years combined of active duty service, Special Operations experience, and numerous combat tours, our team has seen, experienced, and overcome high stress/traumatic events on the battlefield and at home. As a result, we are familiar with the impact those experiences have on mental health and quality of life post deployment/service.  Our mutual understanding is what makes us different. We are not counselors, doctors, or social workers. We are teammates and survivors.

Anyone who has ever served in the Armed Forces is familiar with the challenge coin and the general rules when challenged. This Veterans Day we are running our own version of a coin challenge, open to all, any branch of service, active duty, retired etc. We are not telling what the prize is just yet, but let’s just say that it will match the theme of this challenge (not a coin).

I am holding 1 coin in each one of my hands. If you post a photo with two coins that equal more than the total of my two coins you will be entered into the drawing. If you are the only person whose coins equal more than mine, you win. If no-one has a total higher than mine we will accept the highest total as the winner. To be entered you must post a photo on any of the following; this thread, Facebook or Instagram pages, and then tag us in the photo. The Rank / Grade of the awarder of the coin must be visible in the photo.

So what do we mean by total? Pretty simple.

A coin awarded by an 0-6 and a coin awarded by an O-4 = 10 points. A coin awarded by an E-9 will granted a score of 5. E-8 and below or O-1 and O-2 coins will be deducted points however, we will give you an “E” for effort.

The contest will run from today until December 7th. Winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

Invite your friends, spread the word and good luck.

Happy Veterans Day and thank you for your service.
