Invisible Hope Encouragement Card
Inside Text: Even though you can't always see it, there is hope in every new day.
This card was co-designed by a U.S. Veteran and a designer. Together, the two collaborated to share a hero's story meant to inspire, motivate, & bless others.
Veteran: Gonzalo Duran, U.S. Marines
Artist: Dan Stack
After 8 years of dedicated service to the U.S. Marine Corps, Gonzalo Duran returned to New York City. Unfortunately, re-integration wasn't easy. Hurting and homeless, he discovered there were many others like him - which led him to start Devil Dog USA, Inc., an organization that aids Veterans in their struggle upon returning home.
His design is a subtle change to his city and represents a memorial to his brothers and sisters in overcoming both the visible and invisible injuries from life.
