“This program undoubtedly saved my life. I say that knowing that my recovery is not done. For a lot of us, our recovery will never stop – we rely on this. We rely on Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing for our recovery and our survivability.”  – CPT Eivind Forseth, U.S. Army (ret)

​Frequently Asked Questions

Tell me more about #GivingTuesday

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals (Black Friday and Cyber Monday). And now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. #GivingTuesday is an online, social media driven (and focused) movement – and it is all about charity. It is about creating a national online movement for giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages donations and volunteering activities that support any and all charities and non-profit organizations.

TODAY charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving through your online networks and communities.

​Who can participate?

​Everyone! #GivingTuesday is an online initiative to start the giving season and we encourage everyone to be involved with it.

We invite you to join the movement and get out the give for the veterans we serve.

​How can #GivingTuesday benefit the veterans we serve?

#GivingTuesday can build on the strength of a global online movement to increase exposure and build support for Project Healing Waters’s cause and philanthropic activities, especially during the holiday giving season.

This past year alone, more than 3,500 volunteers engaged over 8,400 disabled veteran participants nationwide. Program numbers are growing fast too, bringing fly fishing to more veterans and active military than ever before.  With over 3.8 million disabled veterans nationwide, we currently serve 8,400.  Our goal for 2019 is to expand our program services to an additional 1,200 disabled veterans nationwide.  To make this a reality, we need your help on #GivingTuesday

About the Mossy Creek knife

For over a decade, the idyllic waters of Mossy Creek have been a reflection of what Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing is all about.  The healing waters of this meandering spring creek has provided respite and healing to countless disabled military service personnel and disabled veterans through Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing programs.  Waters, like Mossy Creek, thread their way through our history and tie us, our communities, and our nation together.  “Main Street USA” often passes over a bridge beneath which flows healing waters.  Following Mossy Creek upstream you pass through America and are embraced by its core patriotic ideals.  It is the embrace, the community, and the unconditional commitment and love of those who tread the banks of Mossy Creek that Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing programs can continue bringing their unique form of therapy to those patriots who have made great sacrifices in the service of our nation.
