Gary Sinise Foundation

March 7th, 2012

3-7-12Lieutenant Dan from the movie Forrest Gump is an Oscar nominated role played by actor Gary Sinise. The movie and Gary’s role is one that any of us will soon forget. A very powerful performance because of his family’s military background and Gary’s passion for those who give of their lives and some their quality of life. His website is a must visit. The following is taken directly from his website.
At the Gary Sinise Foundation, we serve our Nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. We do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities. Gary has helped to raise millions of dollars, as well as dedicated a considerable amount of his time and personal financial resources to various military and related charities. After being contacted by numerous individuals and corporations over the years enquiring as to where would be the best place to make donations to support servicemen and their families, he realized there was a real need in community for guidance. People want to help, they just don’t know how or where to start. His purpose in creating the foundation was to provide a reliable resource for people wanting to donate to programs supporting these causes, knowing that their funds would go directly to programs and organizations that have been chosen and developed based on several years of first hand experience by a credible, respected humanitarian that has personally created and developed, or worked with each and every one of the programs. Under the umbrella of The Gary Sinise Foundation, one person is able to make a difference and join forces with a legion of supporters. “The Foundation is a strong, dependable resource to spread the ‘give-back goodness’.”  That’s what Gary Sinise wants his Foundation to do, “provide opportunities for people to give back.”
Thank you Gary and to all of those involved with this foundation.
