Homefront Hugs began 1 month after 9/11 and on the birthday of our founder’s husband and Air Force pilot, her best friend and hero, Steve Schmidt of amazing Charlevoix, Michigan . They had met at University of Michigan – as college sweethearts and then Steve joined the Air Force . Though their marriage did not last due to tragedy, Homefront Hugs exists to help support military families and veterans better than how they were supported years ago.
We will never forget the sacrifices. Your generosity here makes a real direct difference as 100% is used for our troops and wounded to receive care .
📫 KEY REASONS that troops might not have support while deployed:
📌 Divorce or Separation from Partner/Spouse
📌 Financial issues so family cannot afford to send more than letters or cards
📌 Time constraints for spouse or partner as they have to work 2 jobs now to make ends meet or just longer hours to keep family business going
📌 Children – Their partner or spouse is literally a single parent now
📌 Child or Spouse is ill and requires all the attention and care stateside
📌 Family disapproves of military service
📌 Pride or Depression so hero has asked family or loved ones not to worry about him or her while deployed
You can make a difference at Homefront Hugs and support these heroes ! Adopt or help send care packages today. We need the kind of support our World War II veterans had from the Homefront over 75 years ago.
Support is critical to wrap specific forgotten and often hurting heroes in hugs helping to prevent depression, isolation and trying to tackle the national suicide crisis one day at a time not just this month when everyone reminds us because of holidays.
Homefront Hugs support helps to prevent some of the feelings that makes a service member more vulnerable to PTSD , depression and even giving up.
What is needed most critically now? Funds for postage are needed for vetted wounded and deployed veterans who have no support .
🔹 100% of your donation is used for postage to mail specific needs to our wounded , sick , cancer patients and homeless sick veterans as well as our deployed . We cover the cost of filling the care packages ourselves and with actual supplies sometimes donated . These critical care packages to our hospitalized vets include specific requests from hospital staff here and overseas in war zones.
Our support at Homefront Hugs USA is unconditional ; to ensure no hero is forgotten. Freedom Endures (TM). Support Matters .
How do we receive names of troops in need ?
Great question. We have commands and chaplains signing up troops who have no support for Homefront Hero Hugs and hospitals we have worked with for years with our mission Operation Healing Angel . We also have families and troops who sign up heroes in need or themselves many who sign up evry deployment knowing us from experience .
