A Special Message from Our President
In late July, Rebuild Hope made
the tough decision to cap the number of families in our financial support
network after donations declined dramatically for two months. Rebuild Hope is
requesting your immediate help so we can support more veterans who are
struggling to build healthy family lives. It takes tremendous courage and
humility for them to ask for help. Your gift will enable us to again say "Yes".
Rebuild Hope financially assists
the families of current era veterans who suffer life-altering injuries and
combat-related illness from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. During the past
year Rebuild Hope supported more than 35 families nationwide providing each about
$2400 of financial aid over 6 to 12 months, plus budget counseling and referrals to
financial, healthcare and employment resources. These families face four big challenges:
adjusting to the return home of combat veterans from war, transitions from
military to civilian life, major medical and mental health issues and financial
problems aggravated by long delays in the start of merited disability compensation.
So how can you help? Rebuild Hope
needs to raise $15,000 by October 31, 2009 and another $20,000 by year-end.
This would enable us to accept new membership applications from veterans and
their families starting in November. I hope you will help us reach these goals
by making a generous donation to Rebuild Hope soon. 100% of your donation will
be distributed to deserving beneficiaries.
Please also spread the word about
Rebuild Hope among your personal network of friends, family and associates so
even more help can be provided.
We are currently maintaining a
waiting list of families who wish to join Rebuild Hope. With your support we can help them pay basic living expenses.
President & Founder
|Host A Reception For Rebuild Hope
One of the best ways you can introduce others to Rebuild Hope is to host a reception in your home. You invite your friends, neighbors and associates and we handle all the logistics and costs. A Rebuild Hope reception is informal, lasts a couple of hours, and includes a short program that features the president of Rebuild Hope. We aim to meet potential donors, volunteers and people who can introduce Rebuild Hope to companies, community organizations and other individuals. A reception is a low-key fund-raising affair and we simply send a follow-up letter that requests help.
