Memorial Day Donation Update: Homes For Our Troops

This past Memorial Day, we partnered with Homes For Our Troops to have a very special sale that would not only yield some excellent discounts for our customers, but also give back to our injured Veterans in a meaningful and impactful way. During the sale, which ran from May 26-31, 2022, we donated $1 to Homes For Our Troops for every product sold. Our customers also received 20% off of their orders by entering in a special code at checkout. 

Why We Wanted to Partner with Homes For Our Troops

It’s always been our mission to give back — to both our local community and nationally — so we jumped at the chance to work with Homes For Our Troops. This wonderful organization is one of America’s top rated Veterans and Military charities. The group’s mission is to build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. 

The Veterans that Homes For Our Troops serves have sustained injuries that include multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury. The homes that this charitable organization builds are not just mere dwelling spots for Veterans. Instead, they are strongholds and places of warmth that help to restore some of the freedoms and independence that they unselfishly sacrificed defending and serving our country. These homes give Veterans the space and freedom they need to focus on rebuilding their lives while spending time with family and recovering.

Ever since 2004, HFOT has built over 320 specially adapted homes across the United States. The organization’s ultimate goal is to construct a home for every Veteran who qualifies for one of their specially adapted homes. In alignment with that mission, the staff at Homes For Our Troops is dedicated to commitment, accountability, respect, excellence, and service. 

Each home that is built is equipped with over 40 major special adaptations that exceed the ADA compliance standards. The homes offer Veterans with full accessibility through features like wider halls and doorways, automatic door openers, roll under sinks, stove tops, and counters, pull down shelving, generators and safe rooms, and much more. All homes are expertly designed to help Veterans get their independence back. HFOT builds four-bedroom, two-bath, adaptive energy efficient homes that are about 2,800 square feet. These homes are the perfect size for a Veteran to comfortably raise a family while cutting down on the expenses required for utilities. Many of the Veterans that HFOT has helped have proudly gone on to become motivational speakers and have gone on to speak nationally about serious issues impacting our Veterans like suicide, homelessness, and PTSD. 

Our Heartfelt Contribution

We often partner with meaningful charitable organizations that have an amazing impact on people and the world around them. We knew that working with Homes For Our Troops would be a heartwarming experience. Through our Memorial Day Sale, we were able to raise a total of $5,000 to help Homes For Our Troops build adaptable homes for Veterans in need. 

Giving back is so very important to us because it’s what we love doing the most. In fact, for years, our founder’s email signature has included the phrase, “Hyper-focused on making an impact.” 

“As a company, we stand for doing good. With the help of our customers, we’ve been able to support some amazing causes, and we’ll keep doing that for as long as we’re operating,” said our founder. “It’s just part of our ecosystem at FAB. Every order plays a part in us creating the highest quality products while still giving back to our communities. Thank you for your part in this. We appreciate you.” 

Along with crafting top-quality CBD products that our customers can use to help them live a preventative wellness lifestyle, our other goal is to give back to others in a meaningful and impactful way. Along the way, we’ve teamed up with some pretty fantastic charitable organizations like Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, One Tree Planted, Watering Seeds Organization, Operation Underground Railroad, the Milwaukee branch of Feeding America, Charlie Rocket’s Dream Machine, and others. We continue to partner with charities like Homes For Our Troops to help advance our mission and make a difference in the world and in the lives of others.
