Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House™ Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illnes, disease, or injury.
There is at least one Fisher House™ at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House™ program serves more than 8,500 families, and have made available more than two million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990. Based on a comparison of fees at a Fisher House™ (the average charge is less than $10 per family per day, with many locations offering rooms at no cost) with commercial lodging facilities in the same area, it is estimated that families have saved more than $60 million by staying at a Fisher House™ since the program began.
I know that some of our international readers prefer to donate to charities not specifically linked to the US military, but with 15,000 wounded soldiers out there ... and I believe even our conservative readers will admit this administration is not doing everything it can for these people who have suffered for others' sake ... this is the one I'm going for.
You know the drill. If you found anything on this site useful or amusing, please toss a buck or two into the Paypal. If you got a job because of some advice, make it a tenner, ya cheap prick. If you absolutely HATE me and think I'm a Islamofagcomsymp liberal jackass, toss in a hundred, because as always at the end of the month (mid-June in this case) I will MATCH all funds donated. Shut me up by bankrupting me!
