Authors United for Veterans and USA Cares are Here for Our Veterans!

Earlier today I shared a review of a James Rollins book,
and while getting info for the giveaway, off his website,
I discovered a group that he founded:

and I wanted to share about it with you!

Providing support to our veterans and active military members is something that’s very important to me. Throughout the years, I’ve traveled on USO tours, sent books overseas, and donated time and money to the cause.

That’s why I founded Authors United for Veterans, a group of bestselling authors dedicated to raising funds and awareness for USA Cares. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to helping 
 post-9/11 military families soldiers and their families, through job placement, housing assistance, and emergency aid. Their mission is simple: restore financial stability and self-sufficiency, while instilling a renewed sense of hope among the brave men and women who have put their lives on the line for our freedom.

USA Cares offers a hand up, not a hand out. They provide grants rather than loans and they carefully screen each applicant. For over a decade, since 2003, USA Cares has responded to over 40,000 requests and provided over 10 million dollars in grants.

Here's James speaking about the program:
