In this announcement, shared at the November 11, 2022, Common Ground Gala to End Veteran Suicide to benefit the non-profit Veterans Exploring Treatment Solutions (VETS), Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS, shares the motivation behind his pledge of $500,000 to support VETS' mission.

Blake explains how his vision of giving back led to the creation and success of TOMS, and his challenge to you to help VETS get our nation’s veterans the support they deserve.

Founded in 2019, Veterans Exploring Treatment Solutions (VETS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to end the veteran suicide epidemic by providing resources, research, and advocacy for U.S. military veterans seeking psychedelic-assisted therapies for traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), addiction, and other health conditions. VETS envisions a world where our veterans have access to the most advanced healthcare options to heal from the mental and physical wounds of war.

Working together, we can END veteran suicide.
