We would, once again, like to thank everyone for their support of MechaCon’s Charity Auction. We’ve supported numerous organizations over the last 13 years and have looked for ways to make a difference in our community. For the past 5 years, we’ve had the honor of supporting the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Your generosity during that time has helped raise over $50,000 for this great organization. With the exciting changes coming to MechaCon this year, we thought it was time to offer our support to another great organization. Team MechaCon would like to introduce the newest beneficiary of our Annual Charity Auction:
THEY STOOD UP FOR YOU.
WILL YOU STAND UP FOR THEM?
Building for America’s Bravest is a program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation that builds smart homes for our most catastrophically injured service members returning home. Each home is custom designed to address the unique needs of each individual. Energy efficient, automated and easily accessible—these homes use “adaptive technology” to help our most severely injured heroes live better, more independent lives.
But as amazing as adaptive home technology is, it’s far beyond the reach of most veterans and their modest pensions. The waiting list is long – and for every home we build, another three veterans join the list. When the call came, these brave service members went. They made extraordinary sacrifices in our place. Please help give them a home they can come home to. Your donation will make a real difference in a service hero’s life.
