Be a Hero, Adopt a Hero... and help lift morale which is low. It does not cost much as you can have friends help with items and letters and even postage as long as you maintain confidentiality. We have been doing this for 17 years...since 9-11. Our volunteers come back to give more hugs too and are the reason we shine in our award winning adoption program .
Do it with a friend,as a family, with your place of worship or business , with your students as a teacher,or with your social or sports club ! The rewards are priceless and you usually make new friends for life . Our goal is to prevent suicides, Depression and Isolation as we know after 27 years at war, our troops are stressed and we are still losing 22-24 troops and nets per DAY to emotional wounds ... to suicide. Your letters and simple care packages brighten spirits and lift morale just as they did in World War II . We call them Homefront Hugs and that is the reason for our name .
Hope to hear from you soon . We are assigning within 48 hours now as the need is so great !
Thanks again for helping us make sure NO hero is forgotten.
Email us at Adoptions@HomefrontHugs.org to apply as we will need a bit of info from you due to security but we never share your personal information for any reason with anyone . We respect you too much and want you to be a permanent volunteer with us with a rewarding experience for you too !
