Gummies That Give To Our Veterans
May 1-31, 2020
Our Gummies That Give program is campaigning for our troops during the month of May.
Albanese has partnered with Homes For Our Troops (HFOT), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to building and donating specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans. Albanese has pledged one dollar to HFOT for every purchase made online at www.albanesecandy.com during the month of May.
HFOT's Veterans have faced life-altering injuries for our country, and while HFOT has built nearly 300 homes for them with 80+ underway, there are currently still more than 100 in the application process. HFOT relies on individual and community-organized donations — so our Gummies That Give stepped up to the plate, but they can't do it without their fans.
You Buy. We Give.
Make any purchase on our website May 1-31 and we will donate* one dollar to HFOT. There is no special code or button to select to make sure your donation gets to HFOT. Your donation is automatically applied when you checkout online and pay for your purchase. It's that sweet and easy.
More About Homes For Our Troops
HFOT is a top-rated Veterans and military charity that does more than build homes, they rebuild lives. Through their commitment to stay with Veterans following the delivery of their home, they ensure long-term homeowner success. Homes are built where the Veteran chooses and HFOT has developed a robust network of additional resources to assist with their individual needs, so they can thrive in their community.
Since their inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar spent at HFOT has gone directly to the Veterans they serve. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Through public funding, HFOT builds new homes that are specially made for each Veteran's specific needs and then donates the homes to the Veterans. In addition, HFOT provides a pro-bono financial planner for three years following to assist in financial planning and homeownership education, as well as peer support from other Veterans and their spouses that are in the HFOT program.
Empowered by their new homes and the freedom they provide, these Veterans can now focus on their recovery and returning to their life's work of serving others.
There Is No Donation Too Small.
We cannot express enough gratitude for our Veterans who have sacrificed their freedoms and independence for our country, but we can work together to provide them with the resources they need to live the best life they can today. There is no donation too small for our Veterans. Through our Gummies That Give program, and together with our fans and HFOT, we can make a difference in a Veteran's life.
*Donation will be made as a single donation after May 31, 2020.
