Impact Update: Team Rubicon

| comments

Last year, you supported two campaigns that benefited Team Rubicon: a walk-on role in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the most American day ever with John Oliver.
Jennifer and her husband Benjamin were the lucky winners that had a star-spangled day with John…

As our first charity partner, Team Rubicon holds a special place in Omaze’s heart. Their mission—to unite the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams—is a brilliant win-win. Not only do returning veterans get a chance to put their unique skillset to work in a rewarding way, but the people they’re serving—those impacted by disasters—get additional support during an incredibly challenging time.

Thanks to the funds you raised, over $526,000, Team Rubicon created training and operation manuals necessary to expand and establish more teams around the world, provided necessary assistance to Nepal and the Philippines, and Team Rubicon Global was able to make a key new hire, a President and COO who’s since launched a team in Australia.

In Nepal, TR members from the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Canada and Germany worked together as part of Operation: Nirman (the Nepali word for build) to rebuild a school and help restore necessary services that were damaged in Central Nepal by the devastating earthquake in 2015.

And the TR UK team sent ten volunteers to the Philippines to assist with rebuilding a school and provide support and restoration to an area severely damaged by Typhoon Yolanda.

Your incredible support made a powerful impact not only toward veteran reintegration, but also for people whose lives were positively affected by disaster relief efforts. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
