Michael Russer GoArmyHomes Mt Shasta Banner Signing

By Sandra Beck, Military Mom Talk Radio, Motherhood Incorporated

 

Every once in a while I get a great story or hear something wonderful that a company is doing to support the military.  I wanted to share this with you and think Michael tells it best himself.

As told by Michael Russer…

Every two years a group of guys (I’m usually the “Father Time” of the group – chronologically anyway :o) do some sort of outdoor adventure.  Last time was hiking the Grand Canyonrim to rim in one day.  This time we chose to summitMt.Shasta which is the 4th highest mountain inCalifornia and has glacier snow fields year-round.

Meanwhile I had my GAH banner from when we started the program –had the idea of getting some local kids to sign it and I’d carry it to the summit. With school out it was not looking good to find those kids before we went up. However, a day before the trip I noticed a kids Surf Camp at the beach near where I live and they readily agreed to complete the banner to say “Thanks!” for our troops inAfghanistan.

With respect to the troops I thought the symbolism of carrying this memento of our thanks and appreciation to one of the highest summits in the 48 contiguous states was a great way of seeing our fighting men and women as being at the top as well. 

Michael Russer  and GoArmy Homes we salute you at Military Mom Talk Radio and Motherhood Incorporated.

Unique Happiness Retreat Means Serious Work ForWounded Warriors

 

Harvesting Happiness for Heroes Campaign Finds New Collaborator with Wounded Warrior Project Treating Post Combat Veterans and their Spouses to Happiness Coaching

 

Los Angeles, CA – September 2011-National veteran awareness campaign Harvesting Happiness for Heroes (HH4Heroes.org) is aiding, educating and rebuilding personal happiness for veterans living with PTSD, TBI and/or physical wounds from combat trauma.  As a contributor in the positive psychology field for veterans, HH4Heroes is collaborating with the prestigious Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP), to facilitate a unique four day therapeutic scholarship retreat for fifteen special post combat veterans and their spouses.  Held atUtah’s renowned Sundance Resort and Spa, the new partnership seeks to help wounded warriors and their spouses jointly reconstruct a base point for personal happiness in post combat life.  Anna Freese, Director of the WWP Family Support Program states, “We are excited about working with Harvesting Happiness for Heroes!  We are humbled to help our wounded warriors through their physical injuries but in working with HH4Heroes, we are expanding our efforts to continue assistance to the emotional well-being of our veterans and their spouses.” 

Led by internationally respected Los Angeles based happiness expert, Lisa Cypers Kamen, HH4Heroes and WWP will provide unique, daily, introspective and creative happiness workshops for 30 retreat attendees.   Each workshop is tailored to introduce positive psychology coaching techniques for both veteran and spouse, to battle potential side effects of an active combat life such as; documented depression, substance abuse, anger management issues and suicide.  Adding community support for the HH4Heroes and WWP mission, local Salt Lake City volunteers from Massage Envy of Utah and qualified Yoga for Vets instructors from the SLC Integrated School of Yoga will be providing optional massage and yoga therapy for attendees, accompanied with gifts from Gaiam and Aroma-Chick. “This is a great way to offer support and recognition, not only of our nation’s veterans, but Utah’s own wounded warriors that are healing invisible and physical wounds. We are pleased to be involved, offer gratitude for the men and women who have sacrificed so much and hopefully aid their healing process,” states Isabelle Barger, Director of the Integrated School of Yoga.

HH4Heroes is also partnering with Salt Lake City’s popular WWII themed happiness bakery, Ruby Snap Cookies, and will debut a one of a kind cookie for HH4Heroes named GI Ginger at the event reception.  Ongoing retail sales will benefit national HH4Heroes outreach. In conjunction with the reception premiere of HH4Heroes theme song InBetween  by songwriter Bekah Eden Tunnecliffe, Kamen will be screening her new film H-Factor. . .Where Is Your Heart?, offering insight into the serious business of healing through happiness.  Guitar Center of Salt Lake City is also contributing to the retreat, by donating 30 practice guitars for a music therapy session with national non-profit organization Guitars for Vets™ acclaimed musician, songwriter and instructor Miss Meaghan Owens.  Guitars for Vets™ is offering new guitars by US Music Corp, parent company of Washburn, Oscar Schmidt, for event attendees interested in continuing lessons as combat trauma therapy after returning home.  Laughter comes last but not least on the HH4Heroes program agenda! Offering some comic relief to the program includes a pro-bono performance by acclaimed stand-up comedian and motivational speaker Adam Ace-The Man In Red

“We are so excited to bring our first retreat program to Utah’s Sundance Resort, as we raise awareness for the community support needs of our veterans and their spouses in the state of Utahand across the nation.  We look forward to working with the Salt Lake Citycommunity and being empowered by WWP to make the upcoming program truly therapeutic.  Rebuilding personal happiness is paramount in the healing of post combat wounds, and our veterans deserve to have the tools needed to readjust to a healthy state of well being,” states Program Director and Founder, Lisa Cypers KamenFor more information on the HH4Heroes retreat program please visit harvestinghappiness.com

Dwayne Smith a local and enterprising entrepreneur has effectively used scraps of fleece and fabric to fashion scarves to be sent through Operation Gratitude to our troops overseas for the winter. We would like to honor him for his loving efforts and continual contribution that is both heart felt and eco friendly.  He is currently making more scarves and we wanted to share this with our listeners who might have a loving use for their scrap fabric.  Kudos to Dwayne Smith.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be sure to let everyone know how to get your items of love to our soldiers.  Our first recommendation is to contact Operation Gratitude for more information.  www.opgratitude.com.
