The Veterans’ Administration (VA) released a Suicide Data Report that found an average of 22 veterans die by suicide every day.
22Kill (now One Tribe Foundation) was created as a social media movement to raise suicide awareness.
The organization grew and expanded into an official 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Our #22PushUpChallenge swept social media and we began to expand our awareness initiatives to include suicide prevention. By the end of the year, the viral campaign and the fundraising surrounding it had raised more than half a million dollars to sponsor other veteran service organizations.
We began to acquire and develop traditional and non-traditional mental wellness programs of our own. Today, we offer myriad services through Stay the Course, Tribal Council, Forge, Wind Therapy, WATCH, White Star Families and more.
22Kill officially transitioned to One Tribe Foundation as we expanded our services to include veterans, first responders, medical frontline workers and their families. Learn more about this transition here.
