ROCK FOR HEROES 2016 BENEFIT DAY
( A community united in supporting our young veterans back on their feet. Mates Helping Mates. All proceeds to Homes For Heroes ) - #rockforheroes2016benefitday
Our Mission! Is to raise awareness ( struggling homeless verterans ) and much needed funds ( all proceeds raised going to Homes for Heroes in continuing the wonderful work changing lives). Over 3,000 veterans sleep rough across Australia every night. RSL LifeCare’s Homes for Heroes Program provides safe and secure accommodation, as well as rehabilitation services, to returned veterans and their families if they are homeless. Our young veterans come from a variety of backgrounds, but all have had trouble assimilating back into society after their service to the nation. Physical and mental injuries are prevalent, as sadly are relationship break-ups and an inability to cope with day-to-day life. We will give them another chance. We believe that no one who defends our home should ever be without one.
