Please Help the Families of Disabled U.S. Iraq & Afghanistan War Veterans
 Rebuild Hope Annual Donor Appeal December 2010

  Give 100%.

  Our Wounded Vets Did!

December is the last month of our annual appeal for donations.

If you have already responded with a gift to Rebuild Hope, THANK YOU!

If not, please make one now!


In the past nine years, the families of thousands of severely injured veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have struggled with debilitating financial problems as they strive to build healthy and stable civilian lives. While they wait five months or more for the start of merited disability compensation they often cannot pay their most basic living expenses. And when a veteran's spouse leaves a job to take care of a severely disabled partner, the loss of two incomes impedes the veteran's rehabilitation and weakens the entire family. Meanwhile, many live in poverty.


Rebuild Hope enables Americans to provide these families emergency financial assistance. Qualifying and deserving veterans receive up to $2500 in grants and modest no-interest loans, and Rebuild Hope helps them create conservative budgets, coaches them on financial matters and refers them to suitable financial, legal, and healthcare resources. Our operating expenses are extraordinarily low and 100% of beneficiary donations are distributed to our families.

Rebuild Hope families will never forget these wars. Nor should we forget them as they deserve our gratitude and strong support. So how can you help?  Our goal is to assist at least one hundred families next year, and we need your generous support to raise $40,000 by December 31, 2010.

It takes tremendous courage and humility for veterans to ask for help. Your gift will enable us to again say "Yes".

Warmest regards, 

Dana Hendrickson

"I can't thank you enough for stepping up to help us as you did, especially for doing it on such short notice. Things are working out great for my family and this would not have been possible without your support.

 I look forward to helping Rebuild Hope in the future when my financial situation is better."

- Staff Sgt Gary Morgan (Veteran)
