AMAZING! Almost $6,000 donated to help build homes for wounded veterans in THREE MONTHS!

At I Love My Freedom, we know there's one group of people who deserve all the credit in the world for risking everything they have for our freedom.

Early this summer, we rolled out a new plan to donate a portion of all of our sales to Jared Allen's "Homes For Wounded Warriors" program which builds & remodels handicap accessible homes to suit the needs of our injured United States military veterans. I Love My Freedom is based in Minnesota, after hearing the mission of Minnesota Vikings Defensive end Jared Allen we decided his foundation would be an amazing one to contribute to (Note: Jared Allen is not associated with I Love My Freedom, we simply donate to his foundation).

As noted on Jared's website:

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors was formed in October of 2009 by retired Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen after he returned home from his USO trip to US Military Bases in the Middle East. Jared was moved by the commitment, dedication, and sacrifices that our soldiers make every day to protect our freedom. He wanted to say thank you to every soldier in the only way that Jared knows how. By embracing the conflict and making a positive life-changing difference in the lives of those who need it most, Jared and his JAH4WW will help make life for wounded vets just a little bit easier.

If you want to donate directly to Jared Allen's Homes For Wounded Warriors Foundation you can visit his website here.

In a few short months of our new store, we've already almost hit $6,000 in donations. Our goal is to hit $50,000 in donations before the end of 2018. It's a massive goal, but we think it's obtainable through a lot of hard work and word of mouth from patriots like you.

You'll notice around our website a little widget that keeps track of how much has been donated. The widget can be seen below.

Here's how much we've raised so far:
