Fulfill Your Destiny helps people whose careers have been altered by injury or other unforeseen circumstances. Special consideration is given to survivors living with a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
1) Keep People Working: To provide financial support to individuals whose careers have been altered due to permanent injuries or unforeseen circumstances, including, but not limited to traumatic brain injuries for the purpose of obtaining vocational counseling, educational or occupational retraining.
2) Inspire and Motivate: To educate others about those personal challenges facing any of us suffering injuries that permanently changes our lives. How we confront our challenges is the key to the core motto of Fulfill Your Destiny: Character Drives Destiny. We teach people that we are all defined by our character, which compels us to pick up the pieces and carry on when confronted with tremendous obstacles.
3) Build Awareness and Educate: To offer assistance – educational, financial, volunteer time and/or in-kind services directly to individuals and other non-profit corporations, to increase awareness of traumatic brain injuries and to support those who have experienced TBIs.

Fulfill Your Destiny Joins Community in Supporting Michael Nicholson Road to Recovery Fund
Fulfill Your Destiny made a donation to the Michael Nicholson Road to Recovery fund. Corporal Michael Nicholson, USMC, is a native son of Tampa. He enlisted in our Marine Corps in June of 2008 and was later deployed to Afghanistan in April of 2011. Corporal Nicholson was on a combat foot patrol in Afghanistan on July 6, 2011 when his unit was attacked and a remotely detonated IED was triggered. Mike sustained several severe injuries including the loss of both legs, his left arm and a traumatic brain injury.
“Our family would like to thank you for your generous contribution to Michael’s Road to Recovery Fund. He has a long journey ahead of him and your gift will be a tremendous help along the way. Words alone cannot express our appreciation and gratitude. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness.”
~ Sincerely, John & Mary N.
