About the Project
At Holidays for Heroes, we recognize that no man is an island. Behind every hero there is a family that has loved, supported, and sacrificed. Holidays for Heroes seeks to repay the heroes as a family unit. In so doing we fill a niche that is too often left unattended.
We hope that by organizing a top-notch retreat for our heroes, we express in our actions what is so hard to express in words: our deepest and most heartfelt gratitude. Our Holidays include all-expenses-paid dining, entertainment, and luxury recreation events of the very highest caliber because our heroes deserve the best. In the end it boils down to this: we see the care and the stress that has by injury been etched so deeply into a hero's countenance evaporate, for a while, and be replaced by relaxation, restitution, and peace.
We are excited to announce that our first ever Holiday will take place June 2013 at Nantucket Island. Historic Nantucket, an island off the southern coast of Massachusetts, boasts an amazing variety of attractions, great restaurants and better people. As a matter of fact, as home to world-renowned artists, authors, sports figures, philanthropists, politicians, and entrepreneurs, Nantucket has a cultural heritage that is second to none. Perhaps it is its temperate, idyllic harbor town, or its picturesque bay, or its historical wealth that makes it such a beloved destination. Or perhaps Nantucket was best described by the Native Americans who first called it home: 'canopache,' the 'place of peace.'
In the long run, Holidays for Heroes wants to make the Holiday an annual event, expand the number of wounded heroes we invite and treat, and raise funds for the higher education of heroes' children. Do you have something to bring to the team? We are always looking for new ways to support heroes and their families.
These wounded heroes have provided for our freedom. The least we can do is provide for their future.
