Awesome: Gary Sinise announces fundraising concert series to build homes for Wounded Warriors

Actor Gary Sinise is one of Hollywood’s most ardent supporters of our military, and to that end, he’s announced a concert series to raise money to build houses for wounded warriors. The project, “Building for America’s Bravest,” aims to build “smart homes” for a dozen wounded servicemembers. Each home will cost about $500,000.

The tour kicks off in Tampa in May with a benefit concert for triple-amputee Sgt. Mike Nicholson. Click here for more information.

We couldn’t agree more.

    Thank you Gary Sinise. For as little as $19 a month, everyone can help. Go to http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org. It is tax deductible.

      Your link goes to a completely different organization. This is the correct link to donate to the specific home building program Gary Sinise’s Foundation is promoting in Building for America’s Bravest:

        Thanks for the catch. I saw Wounded Warrior in the headline and assumed. Both are awesome organizations. I donate monthly to Wounded Warrior Project. They are there long-term for the vets who need their services.

    Dude is awesome. He puts his money where his mouth is when he supports the troops. More like him, and less like Jim Carrey, please.

  • dwsmokin

    Wow-an actor/celebrity with a bit of class and a sense of honor. Stunning! But not the only one-they just don’t get much press.

  • Maxx

    If it takes 10 Jim Carreys to have one Gary Sinise, I’d still say it was worth it.
