Donate Life

ABOUT David Nicklas Organ Donor Awareness Foundation

There is a critical shortage of organs in this country. More than 110,000 individuals currently await a lifesaving transplant in the United States. Of those, more than 10,000 are Texans. Last year alone, more than 6,300 people died awaiting an organ transplant; that’s 18 people who die daily because an organ did not become available to them. A person is added to the national organ transplant waiting list in the United States every 11 minutes. The generosity of an individual donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation and enhance another 50 through tissue donation. David Nicklas Organ Donor Awareness Foundation

Operation Enduring Support

Because Freedom is Not Free

ABOUT Operation Enduring Support

Thousands of miles away from home and loved ones… combat is lonely. Returning home to an awaiting hospital bed is even lonelier. Many of the wounded receive hospital visits from loved ones… some receive none and we have been there to help. Operation Enduring Support was the idea of John Roure and Scott Haire to help soldiers and Marines who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan by providing specialized equipment and training in an effort to keep our warriors from becoming casualties. We have also helped those individuals and their families that have fallen between the cracks of what services are currently available to assist them. It is time that we all make a difference… Because Freedom Is Not Free. Operation Enduring Support

Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund

Founders of the Wall

ABOUT Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund

Based in Arlington, Virginia, VVMF (the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund) is the nonprofit organization authorized by the U.S. Congress in 1980 to build a national memorial dedicated to all who served with the U.S. armed forces in the Vietnam War. Incorporated on April 27, 1979 by a group of veterans led by Jan C. Scruggs, the organization sought a tangible symbol of recognition from the American people for those who served in the war. The result was the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (commonly referred to as The Wall), which has become one of the most visited memorials in Washington, D.C. with an estimated 5.6 million annual visitors. Since the dedication of The Wall, VVMF has pursued a mission of preserving the legacy of The Wall, promoting healing and educating about the impact of the Vietnam War. Our latest initiative is the campaign to build the Education Center at The Wall. The Education Center will show the pictures and tell the stories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam, provide a rich educational experience on the Vietnam War, show some of the more than 400,000 items left at The Wall, and celebrate the values exhibited by America’s service members in all wars.
