Cheers for Charity is our series of weekly fundraisers for non-profit organizations, both local and national. Come by and have some good cocktails for a good cause.
This week’s organization is We Heart Vets.
Provide Veterans non-medical home care services that will improve their quality of life.
As Americans what is our duty towards Veterans?
During President Abraham Lincolnâ€™s 2nd Inaugural Address he stated,
â€œWith malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nationâ€™s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan.â€
Why are our Veterans not receiving the home care services they deserve?
There are several factors that contribute to this such as the economy and politics, which has caused us not to prioritize those that sacrificed selflessly for us:
The Veterans Administration (VA) has limited resources for Veterans
Medicare does not pay 100% of home care services for our aging Veterans
Stringent qualifying criteria limits number of accepted applicants
Our Veterans deserve to be remembered; they deserve to be cared for; they earned that rightâ€¦.
