Rags Of Honor

About 1.4 million military veterans are at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks and dismal living conditions in overcrowded, substandard housing. And the number of young, homeless veterans is increasing. When banker Mark Doyle returned from deployment as a forensic accountant for the Army in Afghanistan, he was shocked to find that the unemployment rate for young, returning veterans was 25%. With savings and no business plan, Doyle started Rags of Honor to give back to those that have given so much of their lives.

TED: Ideas Worth Spreadinghttps://www.ted.com/
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
