About the Founder
Founder's Statement
Advisory Board

We as Americans are all children of heroes. Our families who have escaped persecution, intolerance and prejudice are American heroes. Our families who left poverty and hopelessness to come to America are heroes. Our families who survived slavery in this country are American heroes. Whether from Europe, Africa, Asia, South America, or native born we all make up the "Family of America" and "Children of Heroes".

Our families, as citizens, became heroes again as they produced the equipment and machinery to protect us. They gave their service to the military to keep this a free country. Many became the ultimate heroes by giving their lives to protect our country.

Because of the events of September 11th we are once again creating heroes. Brave Americans are once again giving their service in the protection of this country. Once again, fathers and mothers are making the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country.

This Foundation was formed to give financial aid and support to the children of those fathers and mothers who gave the ultimate sacrifice and are the ultimate heroes. It was also formed to promote the concept to every American that we are all "Children of Heroes" living in the "Family of America."

Source of Income

The Foundation will not seek contributions, rather in the spirit of the American way has designed and produced exclusive products whose profits will benefit only the children of our fallen heroes and their families.

To achieve its goal of raising significant funds to aid the children, the Foundation has designed a line of hats, clothing and related products of a patriotic theme. The products will be marketed to all Americans, as a way to financially support the children of our lost heroes and to demonstrate our support for the heroes still fighting the battle. Whether the purchaser believes in the war should be irrelevant. These products will symbolize our belief in each other regardless of race, religion, sex, or national origin. They should support the concept that we are all part of the "Family of America."
