Thank you for supporting those who give thier all to do what is asked of them. There are many ways to support a military family during one of the worst possible times in thier lives. I would say this is by far the most impacting, directly reaching way anyone could help comfort families of wounded warriors. Your dollars go DIRECTLY to the Fisher House which in turn provides a home away from home completely FREE of charge and includes all amenities families could need.
We are walking 24 hours for pledges and donations to help raise funds that keep this organization going. Please, even $1 buys you a metric ton of warm fuzzies, as well as a months worth of great karma!! :) Thank you for your help!!
Total Donations Collected:$215.00

The Fisher House™ Program
The Fisher House™ program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.
Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House™ Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.
There is at least one Fisher House™ at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House™ program serves more than 12,000 families, and have made available nearly 3 million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990. By law, there is no charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs; and Fisher House Foundation uses donations to reimburse the individual Fisher Houses operated by the Army, Navy, and Air Force. No family pays to stay at any Fisher House!
Online donations are completely safe and the most efficient way of donating (saving time and money), but checks are accepted. Please write the check to "Fisher House Foundation" and mail it directly to the fundraiser. The fundraiser will send it to the Foundation with the appropriate paperwork.
The Foundation has received the highest possible ratings from the “watch dog” organizations that evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of nonprofit organizations: For every dollar donated to Fisher House™ Foundation, 96 percent goes directly into the Fisher House program.
Fisher House™ Foundation, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Donations are tax-deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.
