SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! The following are just a few of the online resources you can use to show your support to united states military servicemen and women today... CHILDREN OF FALLEN PATRIOTS FOUNDATION - www.fallenpatriots.org Founded in 2002, the foundation provides college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. You can participate in the #DropAndGiveMe10 Challenge by posting a video of yourself doing push-ups in honor of fallen patriots, and donating some amount to the foundation for ev- ery successful push-up, and then challenge three others to do the same. Or, you can contribute panels to a charity knitting/crocheting project to raise awareness of the foundation's mission. HOMES FOR OUR TROOPS - www.homesforourtroops.org Started in February 2004, this non-profit organization builds and adapts homes nationwide for servicemen and servicewomen who have returned from Afghanistan and Iraq with disabilities. The site seeks monetary dona- tions, as well as contributions of land, to expand the number of the handful of projects under way. Organizers work with contractors, home material manufacturers, and corporate partners to raise funds and provide materi- als for building projects. WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT - www.woundedwarriorproject.org This non-profit focuses on raising awareness and enlisting the public’s help to fulfill the needs of injured service members and their families. You can assist by hosting a supporter event, sending letters to wounded veterans, or making a contribution to help provide rehabilitation, activities, and career counseling for wounded warriors. FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION - www.fisherhouse.org Fisher House operates a network of homes at major military and VA medical centers nationwide where military and veterans’ families can stay for free while a loved one is receiving medical treatment. It also operates a Hero Miles program, and a Hotels for Heroes program that accept donated frequent flier airline miles and hotel points to help veterans’ family members travel to their bedside and stay at a hotel for free.
