The “Buy A Heart, Help Heal A Soldier Fundraiser”, hosted outside of Texas Bloom & Gifts, will benefit a number of our initiatives. The donations from this fundraiser are to support our research efforts to improve the lives of service members. Donations will also go to our Veteran Homelessness Initiative. This initiative will provide direct financial assistance for rent, utility and medical bills, and groceries. All in-person participants will receive a paper Heart to write down their name and a message. We will then proudly display those hearts on our office wall in a mural to be constructed out of those hearts.
The fundraiser starts at 8:00 AM, with participants able to walk up and show their support at our table located in front of Texas Bloom & Gifts at the Triangle.

About Glass Soldier
There is a history of secrecy from the Department of the Defense on service member data related to sexual assault. Because of this, independent, third-party research must be conducted in order to prove what they already know – that is there is a pervasive culture of sexual assaults and its causing service members lifetime trauma that is unrelated to protecting U.S. interests.
Through our Military Sexual Trauma (MST) Research, Innovation, and Survivor Initiatives, we can raise awareness of the issues facing service members and their families. MST can lead to several poor outcomes including PTSD, homelessness, and the breakdown of families.
