Twenty-two veterans commit suicide everyday. It's an alarming statistic that an Indiana based organization is trying to tackle.
Elder Heart calls upon local artists from around the state to help our vets cope with stress of war.
“It takes a warrior to heal a warrior. It's now our job as warriors who have gotten out to give back,” said Tom Spooner, VP, Elder Heart.
Spooner has put down his gun and picked up a paint brush, as the vice president of Elder Heart—an organization that’s trying to empower our vets through art.
Huntington based artist Angela Ellsworth donates her time and art to the organization.
“There life is never going to be the same but if they can find a way to cope with the emotional stress of warfare through art that's wonderful,” said Ellsworth.
Ellsworth is selling prints of the photo-etch that she donated to Elder Heart. She will give 100 percent of the proceeds back to the organization. Her work can be found at the link below.
