For years now, 4Patriots has been making charitable donations to organizations that support current U.S. military personnel and veterans.
Among the organizations that benefit when our company makes donations based on a percentage of your purchases are Operation Homefront, which aids military families during difficult financial times, and A Soldier’s Child Foundation, which provides meaningful birthday gifts to the children of fallen U.S. military members.
Now we’re committing to make regular, sustaining donations to the Fisher House Foundation (www.fisherhouse.org).
This organization operates 69 homes across the country where families of active duty soldiers and veterans alike can stay at no cost while their loved ones are receiving medical treatment. Fisher House is ranked A+ by Charity watch and 96.9 out of 100 by Charity Navigator. Over 92 percent of donations go directly to the veterans programs themselves. To date, more than 320,000 veterans families have benefitted from this program.
Fisher House provides a wonderful service by giving the families of these injured and ill soldiers and veterans a free place to stay near where their loved ones are being treated. This saves them considerable amounts of money and allows them to be near their family members when they are most needed.
The No. 1 reason we are able to make these types of donations is because of your purchases of our products. When you buy emergency food, generators, water purification systems, heirloom seed vaults and other items from us, that enables us to help organizations that aid U.S. military members and their families.
As some of you know, previously we were making regular donations to the Wounded Warrior Project, which has done many good things for our vets over the years. But it came to our attention recently that the organization was wasting money on lavish parties and other frivolous things. So, we discontinued our donations to them. We hope for the sake of the soldiers that they restructure and make some big changes in the way they handle donations.
Rest assured, our commitment to U.S. servicemen and women, and to other needy Americans, will continue. Thank you for being part of the 4Patriots family. People in need thank you as well.
