The Veteran Ticket “VET TIX” Foundation
If you haven't already heard of the Veteran Ticket Foundation, get ready to be impressed!
VET TIX is an organization that focuses on the distribution of FREE event tickets to our Military members, Veterans, and even family members of troops Killed In Action (K.I.A.). To date, a total of 2,708,958 tickets have been given away and they are still counting!
Events that you can plan on seeing include: sporting events, concerts, performing arts and other family activities!
To VET TIX, giving a free ticket to these events not only reduces stress throughout the military community but it also helps create life-long memories and encourages service members to stay engaged with American life and local communities.
This foundation doesn’t stop at giving away free tickets, they also take part in what they call “Hero’s Wish”. “Hero’s Wish” allows families of those killed in action, members who are deployed and/or wounded to request specific tickets for any single event. Through donations, they try to make their wishes come true. This is an organization that can’t be missed!
To see available tickets and/or ways to donate check out their site at www.vettix.org!
