My friends from the Northern Guard Supporters of the Detroit City Football Club have started a terrific grass-roots project called Hooligans for Heroes. The project works in conjunction with the Wounded Warrior Project to help bring aid and awareness to American heroes, on and off the field.
From the Mission page of Hooligans for Heroes:
“In mid 2012 tragedy struck the platoon of Chris Monroe, a Northern Guard Supporter currently serving our country in Afghanistan. When Chris relayed back home the news of his injured fellow servicemen Sgt Jordan Sisco and Spc Jason Smith, Gene and Ken Butcher (founders of NGS) saw that the frontlines can stretch all the way back home. More importantly, they realized that there was a perfect opportunity to aid our brothers and sisters overseas. With the founding of Hooligans for Heroes, a new supporters section is rising in our cities and towns across the country. Partnering with groups from across from leagues nationwide, 100% of the donations to the cause go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project.”
You can help make a difference by making a donation or buying a t-shirt or sweatshirt.
Please help by spreading the word of this important cause:
