My name is Scott Hicks. I am a 37 yr old 100% service connected disabled non-combat veteran. I have a wife and 3 kids. I have struggled with a severe depressive disorder & some elements of PTSD. I found something that works for me to help with the depression and I want to share it with other veterans in person and by making this documentary.
I will be driving 10,000 miles in a 65 VW Bug to reach veterans with PTSD & Depression and bring them a way to help reduce depression through Goal Setting and subsequently creating hope for themselves.
What We Need & What You Get
In order to make this project a reality there are a number of different elements that need funding.
• GoPro Cameras/gear/memory cards/battery's/etc.
• Vehicle needs Tires/mechanical preparations/interior modification(bed to sleep on)/emergency repair fund
• Fuel costs/food
• media & promotional materials
Your donations will help one veteran reach millions of veterans to potentially reduce the number of veteran suicides each day, raise more awareness of the veteran suicide epidemic, & assist veterans in connecting with services available to them but are hard to find.
Other Ways You Can Help
Since I will living out of my 65 VW Bug during the 60 day journey, I will need hosts to provide showers, clothes washing, and possibly a meal.
If you know of a veteran that could really use a visit from a guy that cares, let me know where they are and and I will try to put them into the map/schedule
