About the event

CASUAL ATTIRE

The mission of Bad Habitz Organization is to provide a space for veterans to be able to acknowledge and help deal with their PTSD. The vision is to train veterans in the entertainment industry, whether it be in front of the camera as cast, behind the camera as crew. The goal is for veterans to be able to work on documentaries, commercials, television shows, music videos, feature films or anything to do with the entertainment industry, working and networking with others in both the entertainment industry and in the community. While attending the courses, we will also be helping interested veterans in applying for their veteran benefits, including any veteran disability benefits they may be eligible for.

The proceeds from the online auctions will be divided to help two other veteran organizations. 5% of the auction proceeds with be donated to the Louisiana Honor Flight that flies veterans from the WWII, Korean War and Vietnam War era to Washington, DC for the day to tour the memorials free of charge to the veterans. 5% of the auction proceeds will be donated to the Louisiana Women Veteran funeral travel fund in which the group attends the funerals of our female veterans to honor them. 90% of the proceeds will go to the Bad Habitz Organization to purchase the equipment needed to train the veterans, to pay local industry professionals to teach.

Life can be extremely stressful for many veterans when returning to civilian life. I know first-hand how the film industry can keep a veteran from becoming one of the 22-A-Day veterans we lose to suicide. I believe in giving our veterans an opportunity of learning additional skills along with them a possibility of future employment that may help them cope more easily, as well as helping them with possible anxiety of a life-changing event.
