Frets Nirvana and US Military Veterans Group announce 2022’s August benefit for Homes For Our Troops in Second Life for August 3, 2022!
Frets Nirvana, longtime supporter and contact for Homes For Our Troops in Second Life in conjunction with the US Military Veterans Group, announces the 2022 August benefit for the Veterans Support Organization Home For Our Troops at Veteran’s Isle .
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, nearly 90 cents of every dollar spent by Homes for Our Troop has gone to directly support Veterans. DURING THAT TIME HFOT HAS BUILT 330 SPECIALLY ADAPTED HOMES NATIONWIDE FOR EXTREMELY INJURED VETERANS.”
In 2021 the community in Second Life sent over $21,000 to Homes For Our Troops, thanks to many kind hearts and great Second Life performers. That was a 40% increase over 2020’s donations of over $15,000.
15 Veterans and their families received the keys to their forever homes in 2021 and the donations received in Second Life were part of that effort. Currently HFOT has 73 projects underway for extremely wounded veterans.
Home for Our Troops benefit concerts feature premier Second Life talent monthly at Veteran’s Isle. The August 3 concert for 2022 is scheduled from 4-9 pm PST. Featured artists will be DJ Waya Snowpaw, Mavenn, James Olmos, Greg Ellis Toronto and Hogan Bailey.
