We are pleased to announce the launch of Safford RV’s very first promotion: “SAFFORD RV FACEBOOK FANS Salute Our Military” We are very excited about this and we hope that you’ll join us.
We appreciate everything that those who serve risk, and the sacrifices they make to protect our freedom, and we want to give back. WISH for OUR HEROES is an organization that sets itself apart from many others. Here’s a little bit more about them:
“WISH for OUR HEROES is a national 501(c)(3), dedicated to assisting the men and women of the United States active-duty military. WISH for OUR HEROES launched in November of 2009, in honor of 1SG Thomas G. Wells, who was a career Marine. The founders of WISH for OUR HEROES served on active-duty and while deployed, they recognized that a serious need existed within our military ranks. There were so many great charities in existence, but the majority of them focused on specific groups or categories: WIA, KIA, bankruptcy, divorce, etc. There were no charities that focused on not only helping military members falling into these extreme categories, but also helping the average, hard-working military member going through a difficult time. WISH for OUR HEROES saw the toll that war takes on families back home, and we needed something that could help families with small issues. Small issues can spiral into larger issues, and larger issues can spiral into things like divorce, suicide, and all of those problems our military members face as a result of daily military life.
Military life is difficult – men and women selflessly serve our nation, while working for little pay, putting their life on the line, and dealing with the secondary effects that can tear families apart. WISH for OUR HEROES wanted to provide resources to the “average” military member, in order to make their deployments a little easier, and to improve the quality of their family lives while home or during deployment. If we can put a smile on the faces of our military members or their loved ones, or give them a small break from the trials and tribulations of their daily lives, then we are doing our job.
WISH for OUR HEROES started with the goal of providing one wish for every deserving military member. There are no requirements – military members simply have to be on active-duty at the time the wish is submitted. Our priority is to always grant basic needs or emergencies first – anything from putting food on the table to assisting with car repairs, home repairs, baby supplies, clothing, etc. When basic needs are met, we also enjoy providing fun things like sending the troops to athletic events, sending them on vacation to get re-acquainted after deployments, meeting celebrities and more.”
Here is how the WISH for OUR HEROES granting process works:
