About the Home Sweet Home Campaign
The Home Sweet Home Campaign was inspired by Tim Little; a US Army reservist who served two tours in the Middle East and currently suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Little and his family nearly lost their home while he was being evaluated by the VA, but thanks to USA Cares, they were able to stay in their home and focus on the future and healing.
The Home Sweet Home Campaign has pledged to raise $1 million dollars for USA Cares Warrior Treatment Today Program. Raising funds through the TShirts 4 Soldiers and Groups That Care programs, the Campaign will be helping wounded veterans and their families keep their homes while the veteran receive the treatment he or she needs and deserves. For every product sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated directly to USA Cares. USA Cares is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help bear the burdens of service by providing post 9/11 military families with monetary and advocacy support in their time of need, preventing private military home foreclosures and evictions.
