Hero Miles

If you have never heard of Hero Miles please take a minute this weekend to turn on CNN and immerse yourself in an amazing program that is helping our injured soldiers. Hero Miles provides free flights to military families of OIF/OEF injured soldiers. For families like ours who are miles away from home this program is a Godsend.

This weekend with the help of CNN your frequent flyer miles can really make a difference. All donations this Memorial Day weekend will be matched by the airlines. For more information please visit the Fisher House website.

Thank you all for your constant support not only for our family but for all of our troops.

**As a side note... You can see us and our other house members this weekend on CNN. They will be showing clips of us telling our stories and sharing what life is like inside the Fisher House. Clips will be played at random all weekend.**

There's another program to support Fisher House launching this weekend (5/27/07).

Best Buy is partnering with the 38 Fisher Houses to donate laptop computers and other support to make it easier for service men and women at these medical centers stay in touch with their friends and families. Best Buy customers can support Fisher House, the troops and their families through in-store and online donations.

Beginning on Memorial Day Weekend and continuing through the week of July 4th, Best Buy customers can donate to Fisher House at any Best Buy register during check-out, or any time from the Best Buy website, Best Buy vendor partners, including Nintendo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba are donating lap top computers, flat screen televisions, Wii gaming systems and other technology to the Campaign. Best Buy employees will volunteer at Fisher Houses and help install and service the new systems. All is part of an effort by Best Buy to provide the Fisher Houses with the most modern technology so the families can remain connected to their loved ones.

STARTING ON 5/27: Go to or for more information and donation links.
