American Veterans of War located our of Boston, Massachusetts and Love a Michigan Vet Project are combining forces in hopes of truly making a difference within the vet community. Angelo Zammit and Ami Pancholi Co-Founders of American V.O.W and Nadine Jones founder of Love a Michigan Vet Project have faith in the American people to do what’s right and support our vets. They also feel as though the only way to achieve their goal is to do a country wide tour to every major city starting with Boston, MA and promoting their cause and by leading by example. “Flyers and direct mail just won’t be enough” said Angelo. “We must get personal and bring this major issue to the public directly and smack it right in their face and hope the media catches on, which would provider us the means of reach to the public we truly need to make a difference. For now all we can do is fight as hard as they did to protect their rights as well as what they earned the rights to, and take it one day, one state, one city, one person and in result helping one vet at a time.”

The American V.O.W. Mission:

American V.O.W. was founded in hopes of raising awareness and donations to support both surviving war heroes as well as the unfortunate whom died for our liberty.

Donations collected are distributed amongst military men and women to assist them in obtaining proper recovery treatment for PTSD other medical, physical and psychological conditions acquired from war.

American Vow is also dedicated to helping homeless vets find comfort in knowing they will not be forgotten as long as we are breathing and determined to bring the cause to the forefront. Portions of donations go towards homeless vets as well.

Most importantly, American Vow is determined to raise as much donations to try and assure that every fallen war hero who lost his or her life in the battle for freedom will have the proper and respectful burial they so deserve.

Accomplishments:

American V.O.W. has set up donation fund boxes in well over 100 local convenient stores around Massachusetts collecting more than $30,000 in the past 2 years. They throw local events as often as they can and promote heavily on all social media channels in order to raise as much awareness as possible with the time and resources available. They have not only helped feed over 300 homeless vets but provided cloths and shelter for hundreds as well. The plan is to continue growing nationwide in order to provide every major resource one would need to get on their feet and live a healthy strong productive life they fought so bravely for us all to have.

The Love a Michigan Vet Project Mission & Accomplishments:

Love a Michigan Vet Project provides supportive services to veterans and their families. We feel that “No veteran should go without” and do our best to make sure that they do not. We seek resources to assist local veterans in need. We provide year round assistance and also host special projects and events throughout the year.
We work closely with four Veterans shelters in the Detroit area, including sponsoring and serving dinner at one of the shelters monthly. We fill the needs of those at the shelter year round.  For example, by bringing sheets, blankets or other items they may need at the time. We also assist finding furnishings for those transitioning into their new homes. One of our big projects is a Christmas dinner party for all four shelters. We provide a complete Christmas meal and gifts.

The Veterans at the shelters usually have the bare minimum. We give them all a new coat, undergarments, a towel, a complete set of toiletries, hats, scarves and gloves. The new items are packaged in a new backpack. The items are greatly needed and appreciated. The items are their Christmas gifts to ensure they are able to enjoy the holiday. The total number of veterans housed in all four shelters is 175. We also provide veterans and their families with holiday assistance, providing the family with a full dinner and at Christmas, including gifts. We also ensure that the children have a winter coat and boots.
Numerous times a year, we send care packages to those serving overseas. We also help find resources that are a comfort to their families while deployed.
We encourage our youth to get involved, small hands are always welcome. Everything we do is community based. Our goal is to raise veteran awareness in our community. We do different speaking engagements, and involved with student veterans on school campuses. Our founder Nadine Jones is the President of the Association of Women Veterans at the University of Michigan Dearborn. One of our events is the female Veteran Stan down, where over 250 female veterans receive assistance.
Our donors and volunteers are welcome to come and participate in any of our events. We love for our donors come and join us, to see your donations at work.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please consider us for future volunteer opportunities. Also, if you know a Veteran in need please refer them to us.

About Angelo & Ami Zammit 4 Articles
Angelo Zammit was born August 31st 1981 at Saint Margaret’s Hospital, Dorchester, Massachusetts to Margaret Donahue and Ralph Zammit; he is the youngest of five siblings. At an early age Angelo developed a knack for writing and found his talent truly lied in music. Angelo would find great success in years to come landing music appearances on hit television shows such as the Entourage, True Blood and most recently the blockbuster film starring Robert De Nero, Wizard of Lies. While success from music opened doors to the modeling industry, Angelo landed a major contract with the famous clothing line Armani and guest appearing alongside the most famous in magazines like Men’s Health, G.Q, Teen Magazine and many more. At only age 16 Angelo found himself with a bright future and impossible to see failure. But there was something Angelo missed about just being ordinary;thoughts crossed his mind that, “is it possible to live a normal life with too much success”, and the short answer was no. He found his own childhood friends and childhood sweetheart now viewing him differently, as if they never grew up with him and he was just some product from television and magazines everyone wanted to get their hands on. Things changed and not for the better, attention and praise was not the reason he sought success. So he packed his bags left Hollywood and back to Boston he went. It wouldn’t be until many years later that Angelo would find his calling, he had a long journey of finding self and his place in the world, “what is my purpose” he would often ask himself. Then it hit him, one day sitting there sparked an idea that would forever change his life. He and his fiancé Amee had just come from C.V.S where they had entered their mobile number into a kiosk in exchange for a reward. The idea was to bring this amazing way of engaging customers and rewarding their loyalty to the small businesses all while being able to text customers with deals, offers, incentives, promotions, events etc. in real time drawing them back in on days they normally wouldn’t have come in to spend money. After all it’s simply marketing and Angelo has been marketing himself his whole life. Thus East Coast Loyalty was Co-Founded January 2015 and is what many now know to be a national multi award winning marketing company. *********** Ami Pancholi was born in Bombay India, currently living in Boston Mass. I came to the states when I was a young lady, age nine. Growing up was very tough for me here. Life was so different when I was in India; It was so easy, so many smiles and laughs amongst my family & friends. We were well established, but that would change once the final move to America was set in stone. My parents did well for a while, but like everything, what goes up must come down and the burden would fall on me. I had to take care of both my younger brother & sister. I had to learn the English language so I could in return teach my siblings & parents. I worked at a very young age to help provide for the family. Age meant nothing in my home, it just meant excuses and my parents accepted none. But that would shape me for who I have become today, the woman writing this short bio. Today, I am a successful business owner of a marketing agency called East Coast Loyalty that I have built into a multi award winning company. I am engaged to my business partner & best friend Angelo Zammit. Today I am what I’ve worked so hard to become, today I am happy, successful and most important, I am free!
