This is a reminder that we're continuing our Military Month Charity Drive. Today we start the collection for Homes For Our Troops. We'll be raising funds from May 17th through the 23rd for this particular charity. This program provides housing assistance to those veterans who return from service with serious disabilities or injuries. While eligible veterans are able to obtain significant grants from the Veterans Administration, it does not fully cover all of the costs. The Homes For Our Troops fund gives additional coverage to those individuals who have selflessly given to our country, so that their home is provided at no cost to the recipient.
Each week in May, one of the veteran organizations in our charity drive will receive ten percent of the proceeds from the $14.95 and $49.95 gold packages purchased from the North American cluster on the Get Gold page and in the Gift Shop. In addition, 75 percent of the proceeds of the $7.99 T14 tank Gift Shop package (T14 + garage slot + 1000 gold) purchased throughout the month of May will be divided between the four organizations.
This is a charity drive and it’s simple to get involved. The more you buy, the more we donate.
We are committed to carrying out our charter to preserve military history and ensure that the men and women who risk their lives for their country are appreciated and cared for. May 2012 marks the 14th NMAM, a month designated by Congress to educate on both the history and recognition of our armed services with an in-depth look at the diversity of its individuals and achievements. It allows Americans to educate each generation on the historical impact of our military through the participation of the community with those who serve encouraging patriotism and love for America.
We have also created a special Military Month page that you can share with your friends to learn more about the events for the month. Keep an eye on the news and forum for more details on special giveaways we'll hold throughout May.
