Press Release: Homes For Our Troops 2019 Kickoff Event
Frets Nirvana and US Military Veterans Group announce 2019’s kickoff benefit for Homes For Our Troops in Second Life!
Frets Nirvana, the premier guitar artist in the virtual world Second Life and the US Military Veterans Group announce the 2019 kickoff of efforts in Second Life for the Veterans Support Organization Home For Our Troops .
Frets Nirvana states: “HFOT is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans are multiple amputees, paraplegic, quadriplegic or suffered severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Since its inception in 2004, over 90 cents of every dollar spent by Homes for Our Troop has gone to directly support Veterans. DURING THAT TIME HFOT HAS BUILT OVER 274 SPECIALLY ADAPTED HOMES NATIONWIDE FOR WOUNDED VETERANS.”
In 2018 the community in Second Life sent over $13,000 to Homes For Our Troops, thanks to may kind hearts and great Second Life performers. HFOT built 34 homes for extremely wounded veterans in 2018. We hope to help them exceed that in 2019!
Home for Our Troops benefit concerts feature premier Second Life talent monthly at Veteran’s Isle. The concert on January 27, 2019 is scheduled from 4 PM to 9 PM PST. Featured artists will be DJ Waya Snowpaw, Quartz, Paul Nowles, Erika Ordinary and Savannah Coronet.
