Military Charities

Terry is passionate about supporting the brave men and women of our military.  Every night, Terry performs the song “Heroes” dedicated to all who have served, currently serve and who will serve this great nation of ours.  Terry donates 100% of the profit he receives from sales of his merchandise to military charities.  The primary charities include wonderful organizations such as The Airpower Foundation and Snowball Express.

Airpower Foundation

The Airpower Foundation was founded by the nation’s oldest military support organization, The Fort Worth Airpower Council, to be a nationwide non-profit dedicated to supporting active duty, reserve and National Guard families. The Foundation also supports projects for children who have lost a parent in the war, wounded warriors and veterans.

Recently, a veteran named Gary Linfoot walked out on stage during Terry’s show at the Mirage. What was amazing about Gary walking on stage is that years ago he was paralyzed from below the waist in a helicopter crash during his service to our country; he was able to come up on stage because he was the first veteran to receive an exoskeleton that allows him to walk again thanks to organizations like The Airpower Foundation.

He told the audience that thanks to the support of so many people who made this happen he will now be able to walk his daughter down the aisle.

 

Snowball Express

Snowball Express has been a simple, yet profoundly important one: Provide hope and new happy memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11. They bring children together from all over the world for a four-day experience filled with fun activities, like sporting events, dances, amusement parks and more. Parents of children of the fallen often tell them that their child is reserved, withdrawn or unwilling to talk about their loss. Participating in Snowball Express changes that, making each child feel special and giving them an opportunity to share their feelings about losing something so precious, their parent.
