I want to help homeless veterans obtain the substance abuse treatment they need. Did you know that the VA estimates that nearly 200,000 veterans are homeless on any given night and 42% of those served in Vietnam? So -- I got this funky fund-raising idea. What if I shoot 1,000 baskets over a two-day period for pledges. Anything from $1 to $1,000 per basket. How much money could we raise to help our veterans? These are soldiers who have fought for our country -- for the freedoms that you and I enjoy. Now they have returned to their homeland and have fallen through the cracks. We need to help them just as they have helped us. Will you help me help them?
