Our Veterans live with a great deal of physiological and psychological issues that make it hard to do anything in society, We are here to ease that pain, and give the Veterans that truly want a second chance at making things better an opportunity to do so.
The Awareness Tours does just that, it tours the US performing concerts while bringing awareness to the growing issue of homelessness that plagues our nation. The donations that are received would go to the buying of land, the building of the self- sustainable communities as well as the maintaining of these communities.
There are many foundations out there that cater to the homeless as well as to the homeless veteran. All those places are good places, but the key things to those places are, Temporary housing temporary medical and temporary food. All these things are only “Band-Aids” They do great things by feeding them putting them up in temporary sleeping quarters. For one, they are overcrowded temporary sleeping facilities, overcrowded medical clinics and the food is minimal at best. All these places are great for one thing… putting a “Band-Aid” on something that needs major surgery.
THE AWARENESS TOURS is building Self- Sustainable communities to give homeless veterans and homeless people in general a semi-permanent place of their own to call home with an address. They are given continued physiological and psychological care as well healthy nutrition. Stopping chronic homelessness requires these three attributes and this is what we are touring for.
There are hundreds of places to donate to that do great work, but THE AWARENESS TOURS is doing way more than putting a Band-Aid on a gaping wound, we are working towards alleviating the problem all together. With your donation all these things become possible. Will you walk with us on this journey to fixing our broken system? What will it take to open your heart and help these brothers and sisters of ours?
This is by for no easy task but
THE AWARENESS TOURS is up to the task. Will you stand with us?
Remember Band-Aids are temporary. It does not fix the problem Self-Sustainable communities such as the ones that we are working towards fix the deep wound that the US is experiencing. Please give to

America’s homeless veterans have served in World War II, the Korean War, Cold War, Vietnam War, Grenada, Panama, Lebanon, Persian Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq (OEF/OIF), and the military’s anti-drug cultivation efforts in South America. Nearly half of homeless veterans served during the Vietnam era. Two-thirds served our country for at least three years, and one-third were stationed in a war zone.
It has been calculated that 1.4 million veterans are at a dangerous risk of homelessness. This is due to poverty because of the cost of living versus the amount of income; there is an overwhelming issue of overcrowding in the substandard government housing, and lack of support networks within reach of the veteran. Research indicates that those who served in the late Vietnam and post-Vietnam era are at greatest risk of homelessness, War-related disabilities or disorders often contribute to veteran homelessness, including Physiological and physiological disabilities, (PTSD), traumatic brain injury, depression, anxiety and addiction. All this is amplified by the lack of resources and the lack of high paying jobs to offset the cost of living. The fact is; there is no way anyone can survive on the income that is available at this time. For a single veteran, this veteran needs to bring home at least 3000 a month and that is just not attainable for most of them with all the issues they are dealing with.

First and foremost you have to have a heart and the drive to truly help people. With all the homeless people in this country, if we as brothers and sisters of all these people do not help them, no one will.
The first thing that needs to be done is money. We all know this is in short supply with so many people. Just remember this; you have a home, a car, and a job. Sparing a few dollars in a onetime donation or even a monthly contribution can help more than you can even imagine.
Homelessness is a huge epidemic and needs to be dealt with and if everyone sits around and talks about, it will never get fixed. The awareness tours are doing something about it and we are starting with the veterans. With your help we can take the first 30 off the street in the first phase in the first community we will be able to house and care for over 100 veterans. We know that people truly have the heart to help but they just do not know how to do it. Volunteer donate those are things you can do.
The Awareness Tours will make an overwhelming impact on the homeless numbers by building self-sustainable communities ran by the veterans within those facilities. By run we mean the landscape upkeep, the cooking and cleaning for all residents, and the growing of fruits, vegetables and free range livestock.
There are all areas of skill in the homeless veteran community that will be of great use in the community. This community will also have the most effective strategies to help our heroes leave homelessness behind, permanently by helping them remain in semi-permanent and permanent living quarters for some of our older veterans. Within the community itself we will offer not only the housing, but health care, accelerated benefit claim processing, employment training and assistance, furthered education and apprenticeship programs and many other types of support for our heroes.
The Awareness Tours is a great thing for not only the veterans but their families as well. Please stand with us and help us make this a reality for thousands of our heroes.
Many will ask what I get out of it. Well there are many things you take away from helping a program like this; knowing that with your donation, you are part of the solution to an ever growing problem.
Deep inside we all want to help when we drive by these people but giving a couple dollars does not fix the problem just like giving them food does not fix the problem, it only feeds them at that moment. Giving them food is a great thing, but giving our heroes the tools to continue; to feed themselves, is the long term solution.
What can I give? (1.) Time (2.) Money (3.) Property
We are in need of many things. The general public has the ability to give on many levels. The many corporations have the ability to give on a larger scale. Both get tax relief from their donations. There are many things that are needed on the larger scale so that the public can get involved on a larger scale too. Vehicles and property are some of the larger things that will be needed.
For some it is hard to fathom how big of a project this is, but we are here to let you know that nothing on this scale has ever been done and we are doing it, and we are going to get it done with the help of the citizens and corporations of the United States.
To jump on board and become part of the solution, you can email us here. A phone number and address are coming hopefully; sometime this week.
