The Unity Challenge

Mayor Michael Alvarez and Chuck Denny launch the Unity Challenge

Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, Indian Trail Mayor Michael Alvarez, alongside veterans’ advocate and the American Veteran Foundation founder Chuck Denny, launched the Unity Challenge. The goal of the Unity Challenge is to support veterans and first responders while showing that America is stronger than the politics that divide us.

“The fastest way to mend America is to make a unified commitment to serve others,” Denny said. “Our veterans and first responders selflessly put their lives on the line for us every day. Let’s make a commitment to work together to honor them. I am putting out the challenge to everyone in our community and across America to spread our message of unity and support. Together, we can make positive changes for our community and country.”

Those who sign up for the Unity Challenge make a one-year commitment to:

  • Put party and politics aside and become a focused advocate to help heal Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
  • Learn more about PTSD so that if my friends, my family or myself ever need help in the future, I am better prepared to help them.
  • Ask one new citizen a day to accept the Unity Challenge.
  • Write more personal notes to my friends and family by mail and use the Healing PTSD Stamp to pay my US postage rates.
  • Look forward to a new law, signed by Congress, that I will have worked to help created called The PTSD Stamp Act!

The Healing PTSD Stamp will be launched on Dec. 2 in Charlotte and will be available to purchase for two years. The stamp will cost 65 cents, with the additional 10 cents from every stamp being distributed to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to support those diagnosed with PTSD.
