Heroes To Heroes Foundation – Why Us?
‘A common thread for these American heroes is that in many ways they have lost their faith! The nondenominational Heroes To Heroes Foundation, through a program based on spirituality, helps these brave men and women reconnect with the faith that the horrors of war erased!’
They stepped up to serve in the United States military so that the rest of us could continue to live the American dream in peace!
Some soldiers came home unscathed, some made the ultimate sacrifice and some came home with debilitating physical injuries.
And still other combat veterans came home from battle with injuries that cannot be seen by the naked eye, yet are no less painful.
These injuries include depression, moral injury and PTSD that can often lead to an attempted suicide or suicide!
And while there are any number of great charities dedicated to helping our military veterans who are having trouble re-acclimating to life at home, this article highlights the Heroes To Heroes Foundation.
Why Should Individuals And Businesses Consider Participating With The Heroes To Heroes Foundation (HTH) Rather Than Another Veterans Charity?
So many charities do great work helping our wounded veterans, all with mission statements dedicated to the well-being of these brave Americans!
But if one’s donation dollars are limited and only one charity can be chosen, how can a potential donor decide which one to participate with?
It is an extremely personal decision so these are some of the reasons why Heroes To Heroes Foundation should at the very least be considered!
With veteran suicides occurring at such an alarming rate (22 each and every day), Heroes To Heroes addresses the issue in an extremely effective way by combining spirituality with peer support through nondenominational journeys to the Holy Land where these veterans begin to reconnect with the faith lost due to the horrors of war they have experienced. A key component is 12-14 US veterans connecting with 3 IDF soldiers who travel with them, and who are critical in the success of the mission. We are gratified to say that since returning home from Israel, none of our program participants have taken their lives and, in fact, the vast majority have finally been able to actually start living them!
The Heroes To Heroes Foundation organization is predominantly volunteer. Through their belief in the HTH mission, these volunteers donate their time and energy. Heroes To Heroes is always looking to speak with individuals, corporations and foundations that may want to get involved with the charity in some way. This could be a committee membership, potential Board membership or any type of initiative to spread the word about the Heroes To Heroes Foundation mission.
Unlike charities that raise in the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars a year, donations of any size made to the Heroes To Heroes Foundation or participation through one of the many available sponsorship opportunities can actually move the needle and make a real difference in the lives of the veterans at-risk for suicide.
Approximately 85 cents of every dollar raised goes directly towards the mission of helping the veterans.
Closer to home, after much thought, consideration and vetting, Hallmark Abstract Service President Michael Haltman chose to serve as Board Chair of the Heroes To Heroes Foundation!
