Thank you for exploring this great opportunity to make a difference! Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a phenomenal organization that's improving the quality of life for our nation's greatest heroes every day. To honor those who have given so much, I am dedicating myself to breaking the fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail in summer '18. I would so greatly appreciate your support through a donation to HFOT. Together, we can directly impact those who have sacrificed so greatly for our freedom.
I have set a very aggressive goal - raising $430,000 - because that is the average cost to build one home.
This fundraiser is dedicated to Sgt Jacob Pope, an EOD expert and hero who suffered a terrible loss when an IED exploded in Afghanistan. His story: hfotusa.org/building-homes/veterans/pope
HFOT's Mission: To build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
HFOT is a privately funded 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated to Homes for Our Troops has gone directly to their program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
Please join me in my efforts to support this wonderful organization!
