Donita Walters and Kristy Massey have known each other since high school. Thanks to Facebook we reconnected and found that we have so many similarities. One of those is the love for adventure and cycling. On May 29, 2016, it is our intent to cycle across America. For 8 weeks we will be covering 10 different states and logging around 3800 miles. We are aiming to raise $3,800 & awareness for Homes for Our Troops, who build homes for our severely injured veterans. Donating to Homes for Our Troops is one of the greatest gifts we can give to our national heroes. HFOT builds a safe and functional home to live at NO COST to the veterans. What better way can we say “thank you” to a veteran for all that they and their family have given to our country? The donations you make to support us will help this important organization continue to rebuild lives.
Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2004 committed to building specially adapted homes for Service Members nationwide who have returned home with life-altering injuries post 9/11. These Veterans are among the nation’s most severely injured with missing limbs, varying levels of paralysis, blindness and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The homes are provided mortgage-free to these Veterans. These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated to Homes for Our Troops has gone directly to our program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
Your Support Makes a Difference! Contributing to this fundraiser will help HFOT continue its mission to Build Homes and Rebuild Lives. You can trust your dollars are going to a Top-Rated Military & Veterans Charity: HFOT has received Charity Navigator’s highest rating of 4 Stars every year since 2008 and Charity Watch has awarded HFOT an A rating. Nearly 90 cents on the dollar goes to helping the Veterans they serve. Please help us reach our goal of$3800 by donating to HFOT.
