A Day to Remember, A Day to Get Involved
ImpactWeather wishes all of you a safe and happy Memorial Day. As we remember the many who have fallen while carrying out their mission to defend our country, I encourage you to take some time out today to think about the unimaginable sacrifice that the members of our five branches of military service endure in their day-to-day duties.ImpactWeather supports Impact A Hero, which is “a non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization, created to provide a simple mechanism for individuals and corporations to help provide emotional and financial support for our severely wounded/disabled War on Terror veterans and their families. Donations are tax-deductible.”
Their website says it best: “Severely wounded and disabled War on Terror veterans have special challenges everyday. They must adjust to their new circumstances and they need our help. Emotionally our wounded heroes need to know that every American appreciates the sacrifices our wounded heroes have made. Financially our wounded heroes deserve every American’s support to help pay for everyday living expenses, not to mention their new special needs such as retrofitting a house for a wheelchair. Our programs include Impact A Hero Day at sporting and entertainment venues, Impact A Hero Emergency Financial Aid and Impact A Hero Mentoring.” For more information and to donate, please visit http://www.impactahero.org. Stay tuned for information later this week about the upcoming 2010 Impact A Hero Weekend, including the 5K Run/Walk/Wheel this Saturday that many ImpactWeather and Universal Weather team members will be turning out for.
