BENEFITING: Honor Flight Southland
EVENT DATE: May 05, 2017
Our youngest WWII veteran in 2017 is 88 years old. Time is running out for these heroes to visit a memorial they have been waiting to see for most of their lives. Our veterans risked their lives to preserve the freedom of America, please help us show our gratitude by honoring these veterans.
Honor Flight Southland is a 501(c) (3) non-profit 100% volunteer organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We safely transport our heroes to Washington DC to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those others who may be terminally ill.
We are raising money for our spring trip in which we hope to take between 35-40 veterans back to DC. The approximate cost is $2,000 per veteran for roundtrip airfare, accomodations, meals and transportation. Our goal is to raise the necessary funding through online crowdfunding to take 35-40 veterans back to visit their memorials at no cost to them. Please watch our video and browse our pictures to see how much this trip means to our veterans. Anything helps. If you are unable to donate, please share this fundraiser on your facebook and twitter pages to help spread the word.
