LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/20/12 -- Local communities are full of wounded warrior support organizations trying to make a difference for our nation's post-combat veterans. Often, the overwhelming options make it difficult for citizens to navigate the most effective outlet for donations, meaning that a veteran might miss out on a valuable service -- until now. Beginning on Monday, August 20th, Harvesting Happiness For Heroes® and Groupon Grassroots, the philanthropic arm of Groupon, will launch the innovative HH4Heroes® REBOOT Campaign, a collaborative local citizen fundraising campaign to aid veterans, wounded warriors and their families across the nation, heal from the invisible wounds of combat through online programming. Post-combat veterans like Stevie Thompson and Desmond Rice of Los Angeles are among the many across the country praising the efforts of HH4Heroes® in their post combat recovery, offering proof that the HH4Heroes® program has already had a big impact in the veteran world.
CBS News (June 7, 2012) through The Associated Press, reported in an article titled, "U.S. military averaging a suicide a day in 2012" that suicides among returning veterans are surpassing those killed in action on the battlefield. Through the Groupon Grassroots/ HH4Heroes® REBOOT Campaign, civilians have an opportunity to support a stigma-free virtual positive psychology coaching classroom program, with a click of a button. Unlike traditional psychotherapy, the HH4Heroes® innovative virtual program is results driven, helping veterans learn how to manage the post-combat side effects of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), MSA (Military Sexual Assault) and MST (Military Sexual Trauma) before they become a terminal statistic of war. "There are many organizations doing wonderful things to offer short term aid to our recovering post combat warriors, but our veterans are also in great need of sustained healing. That type of healing can only come through a long-term focused program addressing how to manage the combat experience as a whole. Relief from Post-Traumatic Stress symptoms and a sense of greater overall wellbeing in reintegration is the mission of HH4Heroes. That is why HH4Heroes® exists. It's what makes us unique in our support to a growing veteran demographic," says Founder and Managing Director, Lisa Cypers Kamen.
