A Day Of Thanksgiving

I just finished a letter to Gary Sinise and sent off our donation from the Truffles To Remember Our Troops event.  I sent in $278.60, most of it given in dollar bills from hearts that want to honor and remember the sacrifice of the bravest individuals in America.

What a blessing it was to meet the mothers with their children, husbands and wives, veterans, and grandpas who cared deeply about our multiple amputee veterans and wanted to help them out with a new home. Immediately.... When people heard about the mission of Gary Sinise they answered, "I want to give."

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth, who gave their hearts, their money, promises of prayers, hugs, and beautiful memories to me on my 60th birthday... I am so proud to know you!

Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone

November 19th Fundraiser To Build Homes for Vets

Remembering Our Troops

The Gary Sinise Foundation along with the Tunnel to Towers Foundation is raising money to build customized smart homes for America’s most severely injured veterans. The first home has already been built in Staten Island New York for Army Specialist Brendan Marrocco (below) who lost all four limbs in an IED attack while serving in Iraq in 2008. Another home is being built for US Marine Corporal Todd Nicely (above with Gary Sinise) who lost both arms and legs after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan. The goal of Tunnel to Towers is to continue building homes for all 38 of America's triple amputee veterans.
