Thundar Lightning & Peace
MISSION: “Helping Veterans with Trauma”
PURPOSE: The purpose of Thundar, Lightning & Peace (ThundarLP) is to assist veterans who suffer from trauma and loss of identity through advocacy and community building. We aim to provide support and resources to help veterans heal and live fulfilling lives. We also strive to raise awareness about the challenges veterans face when transitioning back to civilian life and promote social justice for our warriors in need. Through our grassroots organization, we aim to build a community that empowers veterans and creates a sense of belonging. Every veteran has a purpose, and no trauma can define who they are or what makes them happy.
Samantha Moreno is the CEO & Founder of Thundar Lightning & Peace (ThundarLP), a nonprofit organization established to help Veterans with trauma. At 16, Sam decided to ACT and establish ThundarLP-501(c)(3). She does her best to advocate for the millions of Veterans who no longer feel they have a purpose.
She believes her organization provides the grassroots movement her community needs to collectively take ACTion and create change for our Veterans. She is a community builder who enjoys serving in her community and bringing the community together through events organized by her nonprofit.
She was taught at an early age that a true “Leader” serve others. Sam hasn’t had an easy life, but she has had the resilience to overcome many traumas. Her trauma gives her the strength to help others, especially our servicemen who have endured much more.
Sam’s road to this point hasn’t always had the smoothest, and she understands it will probably never be linear. But one thing she does know is that it’s essential TO ACT, not be stagnant, but take the initiative, react, and empower our community to do the same.
ThundarLP has helped over 300 Veterans through projects, events, and collaborative resources through our community partners.
“Sometimes even to live is an ACT of courage.”
