Press Release: Homes For Our Troops Concert This Weekend
Frets Nirvana and US Military Veterans Group announce 2019’s June 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 May benefit in Second Life for the Veterans Support Organization Home For Our Troops. This week is the one where we celebrate the founding of our country and we will be kicking it off with a benefit for those who have sacrificed the ultimate for our country so this month’s Homes For Our Troops benefit is a special one.
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 June concert on June 30, 2019 is scheduled from 4pm to 9 PM PST. Featured artists will be DJ Waya Snowpaw, Essence Bilasimo, Wayne Rhodell, Lark Bowen and Toxie Darkmatter
