CAUSECAST and ACM LIFTING LIVES, the charitable arm of the ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC, have partnered to celebrate the men and women of AMERICA’s armed forces with the “Salute to Service” campaign, which is hosted at www.salutetoservice.org. Visitors to the site will have the opportunity to take easy actions to support veterans through the work of partner nonprofit organizations.
“ACM LIFTING LIVES is committed to helping artists improve lives through the power of music, and we are honored to work with CAUSECAST to champion our men and women of service. We hope this partnership will give people throughout the country a way to serve Veterans on their day of honor, and throughout the year to come,” said ERIN SPAHN, Executive Director of ACM LIFTING LIVES.
On “Salute to Service,” individuals can find local volunteer opportunities to support veterans, service men and women, and their families and they can take online actions to trigger donations to participating nonprofits by sponsoring organizations. The site also highlights the personal struggles and triumphs of veterans returning from war and the service projects they have dedicated themselves to as they return to civilian life.
The “Salute To Service” campaign will benefit NATIONAL VETERANS FOUNDATION, USO, SEMPER FI FUND, WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT, VETERANS GREEN JOBS, AMERICAN WOMEN VETERANS, GUARDIAN ANGELS FOR SOLDIER’S PET, IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN VETERANS OF AMERICA, OPERATION GRATITUDE, MILITARY CHILD EDUCATION COALITION, OPERATION HOMEFRONT, CHALLENGE AMERICA and more.
