Happy Thanksgiving from Healing Heroes Network

It's the time for family and food and cheer. Thanksgiving is the great American holiday, in which we all think of what we are grateful for.

This year, remember how thankful we should all be to our service members.  When you settle in to watch the big game, think of our troops who must risk their lives every day trying to make this world a better, safer place to live in. When you take that big bite of turkey and sweet potatoes, think of our homeless veterans that struggle daily for food and shelter.  When you hug your family, think of all those who aren't able to because they gave the ultimate sacrifice and died for their country.

This Thanksgiving, we at Healing Heroes Network are grateful for the men and women who bravely serve and have served in our armed forces.

Happy 237th Birthday Marines

November 10th is the birthdate of our U.S. Marine Corps. 237 years of excellence and valor.

While this clip may be a couple years old, we think the USMC will probably continue to do #1.

We at the Healing Heroes Network would like to wish you a happy birthday. Hooah!

HHN Winners of the Mike Alstott Community Grant

We are excited to announce we were the winners of the 2012 Mike Alstott Family Foundation Community Grant. After being selected as one of ten "finalists," the Mike Alstott Family Foundation posted a contest on their Facebook page for fans to "vote" for their favorite charity to win the grant. Fans could vote once a day, every day until the end of the contest on October 15th at 11:55 pm.

Let's just say, you guys did NOT disappoint! For two weeks fans voted on Facebook and urged their friends to do the same. On October 16, 2012, HHN had the most votes at 1712, 381 votes higher than the second place charity!

The Mike Alstott Family Foundation will be awarding the grant to HHN to use towards our Welcome Home, Hero program, which provides financial assistance to military families of wounded service members injured in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11/01 to use towards basic necessities, including food, shelter, and clothing.

"We will now be able to help up to an additional 20 families," said HHN Executive Director, Stacey Spiegel. "That's just incredible. We at HHN and the service members we help are so grateful to our supporters and the Mike Alstott Family Foundation."

Honor Veterans Day

Veterans Day isn't just one day on the calendar. It's an attitude. The consistent feeling of gratitude and appreciation we feel for those who risked and sacrificed for their country.

Veterans Day is a great time to show your thankfulness. Spend some time with neighbors, friends, or family members who served. Volunteer at your local VA hospital. Donate to your favorite military charity, like Healing Heroes Network.

Let our service members know how much we appreciate them. Honor our veterans and have a fun and safe holiday.
