ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 28, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Geospatial technology company Spatial Networks (SNI) is donating 100% of proceeds from our new corporate merchandize e-commerce site to support veteran suicide prevention.
Veterans are 50% more likely to die by suicide than civilians. Having witnessed military suicide firsthand, U.S. Army Veterans Brian Kinsella, Nick Black, and Craig Gridelli founded the nonprofit Stop Soldier Suicide in 2010. The organization’s mission is to help troops, veterans, and military families connect with the resources available to them without having to go through a complicated, overwhelming process in a time of crisis.
Stop Soldier Suicide’s resource center is staffed with case managers who work one-on-one with clients, assessing each individual’s needs and helping them obtain mental health services, housing assistance, emergency financial aid, and more.
“I’ve known Nick for several years now,” said Anthony Quartararo, Founder and CEO of Spatial Networks. “He’s been instrumental in helping Spatial Networks evolve our product pricing and packaging, and through that exercise, I’ve grown to truly appreciate and respect all that Nick brings to the table as a professional, especially his leadership experiences from his military service.
“When the idea for this online SNI store came up and with it the suggestion to donate all proceeds to support Nick’s organization, it could not have been an easier choice to support. We owe far more to our veterans than we realize and giving back whatever we can is something all of us consider an honor and privilege.”
“The team at Spatial Networks knows what it means to serve,” said Nick. “The good, bad and ugly. Leading from the front, Spatial Networks has proven its commitment to hiring veterans and supporting them as they grow as civilians. Stop Soldier Suicide is honored and humbled to be the recipient of such outstanding and innovative corporate philanthropy.”
Our employees, partners, and customers love our swag, and this store is a new way for them to get it while supporting a great cause. We even added some playful designs featuring some prominent personalities around the office. Visit the shop at http://www.spatialnetworks.myshopify.com.
