I can't even focus on a starting point to express my grattitude to Hope For The Warriors. This organization has that sparkle and magic that instantly creates that family bond with servicemembers who often have an empty hole or void from within. They have not only taken care of me, my entire family has been pulled up under their wing of hope. Any event that I was priviledged enoough to be a part of HFTW far exceeded any expectations. They give you that special moment that the average family would not be able to afford or do the logistical leg work to make it happen. Everyone on their staff from highest to lowest, they are the ALL STAR team. It is hard to believe that HFTW actually cares and does the right things for people who are in need. It is organizations like HFTW that keeps this country in check with a lot of situations being out of hand in the bigger scheme of things across this nation. Please DONATE so wounded servicemembers can get the piece of mind that you enjoy everydHonored to be family with HFTW. CW4 John Lightsey, US ARMY

For the last 3 years, I've had the pleasure of running for Hope for the Warriors in the ING NYC Marathon. This will be my second year volunteering for the Big Apple Run for the Warriors, taking place in New York City. What a wonderful organization for such a worthy cause. The people are a delight--some of the nicest I have ever met. I feel honored to be a part of this organization and look forward to taking part in many more events to come!

I must say that I have had the great opportunity to have been welcomed into the this great organization. There are many groups that say or claim that they are there to help us wounded warriors that have courageously served this great nation and I tell you what there is no organization that has done more for me and helped me get outside and enjoy not only the outdoors but life again. I have been on a couple of hunting trips through them as well as skeet shoot and have always been treated so well by the family that I have been able to make through the Hope for the Warriors foundation. Emma Riley, Nicole Papadopoulos, just to name a couple of people that have really made sure that I had a great time and I look forward to not only doing some more great hunts with them but also just to hang out and help give back to my fellow wounded service members.

I have had the opportunity to engage with some of the families that have been served by Hope For The Warriors and their resounding sentiment is the care they received. They felt a part of this family and they felt like the staff "got it". I am proud to be associated with them and look forward to a long future.

I volunteered for the first time for Hope for the Warriors at the Long Island 5K/10K Run. It was a great experience - all of the employees I met were very kind and focused on ensuring the event went off without a hitch (which it did). It was busy, and they were able to direct me to where they needed the most help. I was able to meet with some of the veterans that they are helping, which was great. Overall, I would highly recommend this charity to all: service members, volunteers and donors.

Hope For The Wariors is recognized as one of the most efficient and military member and family friendly 501 (c) 3 organizations supporting this nations most treasured resource, our young service members. Administrative cost below 4%, resources go where they are most needed, helping make a difference in wounded service members lives. Having visited the wounded in hospitals and talking with their family members, you can see the despair turning into hope and joy when Hope For The Warriors members show up and help alleviate the stress associated with how can the wounded make ends meet. It has changed my life.

Hope For The Warriors is run by a great group of people. I have seen first hand how deeply they care about and for the service members and their families. I remember when Hope For The Warriors was just an idea and now it has grown to be such an amazing charity.

There are countless stories
of all the good work and heart felt gestures that this organization and it's volunteers have done throughout the years. The story below is one that happened recently and is very dear to my heart.

I have a very good friend (age 22) who's husband was injured (and later died) while serving in Afghanistan. Robin with Hope For The warriors saw to it personally that my friend had the appropriate clothing and things she would need to fly to Germany. It seems like such a small thing to do, but when you get a call that your husband is injured, the last thing you think about is what the weather will be like. My friend had packed for warm weather and it was very cold in Germany.

The entire organization has been such a huge support system for my firend. For this I will forever be grateful to Robin and everyone with Hope For The Warriors.

Hope for the Warriors was there for me and my family after I was wounded in Iraq. They are more than a helping hand, they are family. As a board member, I have seen the organization never lose sight of its mission & vision. I not only trust them with financial donations, but with the lives of our service members and their families!

Hope for the Warriors is a unique organization whose commitment to meeting the needs of wounded service members, their families and families of the fallen is largely unparalleled. As a volunteer at dozens of events and a participant in a number of their programs, I have been able to witness the dedication and sincerity of the Hope for the Warriors staff. The success of its programs, its low administrative costs, and the number of repeat - volunteers, sponsors, and benefactors evinces an organization that has garnered the support of the general public by fulfilling its mission on a daily basis. I would not hesitate to donate my time or my money to Hope for the Warriors in the future – this is clearly a special organization.

Over the past few years I have had numerous opportunities to work with Hope For The Warriors and to witness the direct ways in which it assists our veterans and military families.

As a Director of an inpatient program for service members and veterans suffering from the "invisible" wounds
of deployment and war, I have been able to see how Hope For The Warriors assists with immediate family needs, supporting vocational reintegration, and promoting a sense of hope and the possibility of healing.

I have developed a strong professional relationship with Hope For The Warriors, and from the top down it is an organization truly dedicated to taking care of warriors and their families. Their willingness and commitment to develop and support new and innovative programs to further assist military spouses and families speaks volumes to what the organization is all about.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
