EVENT DATE Nov 12, 2015

THE STORY:

Heart of Veteran started when Jordan Holwell, a Licensed Massage Therapist, who works with many veterans in her practice and sits on the Board of Hope and Promise EAP (equine assisted psychotherapy program), heard story after amazing story of true heroism, struggles, heartbreak and courage. She's seen vets, pull themselves out of incredibly dark places and go on to do brilliant things with their lives; and she felt that these brave men and women needed to tell their stories. So she started a project to have 10 veterans who want to tell our life stories, co-author a book. We cover all branches of the military and several conflicts from WW2 to Operation Enduring Freedom. Several of the authors have finished their chapters and they are amazing, we will share snippets of their stories here...but if you want to know more, you'll just have to buy the book. We are looking at Valentines Day, February 14, 2016 as our release date. All proceeds from the sale of the book will be going to programs the Authors of the book decide on. But, it's a costly endeavor. From Graphic Design of a logo and book cover, to copy editing, publishing and printing our budget is just at $15,000. And could be more as we need to print more books. So we have some fundraising to do. We will be holding a big fundraiser in IL on November 12th, but for those who can't make it and want to donate, this is the place to do it.
