Help For Heroes is the charity that does exactly what it says on the tin.
As far as we know, Help For Heroes is the only charity that can say it is 110% effective – we can guarantee that for every £1 donated, £1.10 will go directly to helping wounded service men and women. So, we do exactly what we say on the tin – your donations go directly to supporting the wounded boys and girls.
How we do this?
We do of course have running costs but these are kept as low as possible, and the costs we do have? Well those are covered by the sale of our fantastic Help For Heroes merchandise, every T-shirt, mug, wrist band and calendar sold ensures that the money you donate goes to the men and women who need it, not office bills!
In fact, thanks to the range of challenges we hold through the year and our H4H shop last year we actually made more than we needed to run the charity. So, of course, the rest goes to the wounded – making your one pound stretch an extra ten pence.
Why We Want to Help the Heroes
The reason we are raising money for Help For Heroes is because we believe in supporting the brave soldiers who have risked it all for their country – most of all those that were not fortunate enough to return home in good health. Help for Heroes was launched in October 2007 in response to the desire of ordinary people to do something practical to help our wounded servicemen and women get the best help, support and futures that they deserve. If you want to help us to help them, please sponsor us on our Mount Toubkal 2010 challenge.
