I have made it to quite a few show’s Frets Nirvana has organized to help raise funds for Veterans.
I believe it used to be the wounded warrior project. A few years back Fret’s veteran fundraising has gone to Homes for Our Troops.
I have to say I am very happy about this change, Homes for Our troops is an organization I often support in my First Life.
I was a Military brat growing up and I have Military men in my Life. Homes for our Troops is a wonderful organization that .90 cents on the dollar collected goes back in to the project. Once someone becomes disabled due to serving our country it is very hard for them not to become depressed. Unfortunately, Americans can be very rough on her Hero’s. I am so glad there is organizations like Homes for troops that help Vets Come Back home.

In Second Life, the veterans’ charity “Homes Four Our Troops,” which helps those who once served in the American Armed Forces whom have fallen on hard times by building them homes, is perhaps best known for its monthly charity at Veterans Isle, organized by musician Frets Nirvana.You can contact or see what Frets is doing on his Facebook page.
Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post – 9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar has gone directly to our program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
The HFOT staff is dedicated to these values: COMMITMENT, ACCOUNTABILITY, RESPECT, EXCELLENCE, and SERVICE.
