The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund’s (IFHF) goal is to support the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families by raising funds to build our Intrepid Spirit centers. Many come home from war and don’t know that they have invisible wounds. Unfortunately, this can sometimes cause a downward spiral in their health due to improper diagnosis, or failure to recognize symptoms. The Intrepid Spirit centers help diagnose and treat, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other psychological health conditions. While three of these centers have been opened and two more are currently under construction, there is still a long way to go until our mission is complete.
As you know, you can help support these men and women and their families by donating directly to IFHF. However, we understand that not everyone is able to donate. There are still ways to thank our service members! Check out these methods for showing appreciation for our nation’s heroes:
1. Share IFHF with others
You may not have the ability to donate right now, but someone you know could! By sharing IFHF on social media, you can increase the awareness of the Fund and possibly introduce our work to those who weren’t aware of our organization before. For tips on sharing IFHF, see our blog post on promoting IFHF with your friends.
2. Show your pride
Why not show your recognition of our service members’ efforts by hanging up our nation’s flag? On days like Veteran’s Day or Memorial Day, showing your patriotism can open the door to others showing theirs as well. It’s easy, fun, and can be a good reminder to our heroes that we care about them.
3. Talk to them
It may seem simple, but your words of admiration go a long way with a service member. A simple “thank you” lets them know you care about their help and respect the sacrifice they’ve given for our freedom. You can even do this by writing your appreciation messages on our Facebook wall or tweeting them to us on our Twitter page.
There are always ways to show appreciation for to those who put their lives on the line for our freedom. So donate when you can, use these steps, or do both! No matter the size, we can all contribute in some way.
