The Gary Sinise Foundation is proud to announce that Verizon is joining our mission to honor and serve first responders.

When crisis occurs, our firefighters, police, and EMTs put their own lives at risk to save others. It’s a perilous job, and oftentimes first responders must perform with limited resources. Sometimes they are injured or killed in the line of duty.

Through the Gary Sinise Foundation’s First Responder Support program, 100% mortgage-free, specially adapted smart homes are constructed for severely injured heroes. Wounded defenders also receive home modifications and mobility devices to restore their much-deserved independence. Our First Responder Grants provide critical funding for emergency relief, training, and essential equipment to ensure these heroes perform to the best of their abilities.

Thanks to Verizon’s First Responder campaign, your social shares can help the Gary Sinise Foundation raise $1.5M! Through their “Team that Wouldn’t Be There,” 12 videos are featured of NFL stars and one coach who are alive thanks to a first responder. The campaign will include a 60-second in-game ad during this year’s Super Bowl.

Check out to watch the videos and share your own story. Every share with #allourthanks will help the Foundation raise funds to help our first responders. Each time you help us recognize first responders by sharing #AllOurThanks on social media Verizon will donate $1 to the Foundation.*

Every time someone shares to Twitter or Facebook with #AllOurThanks from this website via the share buttons, or shares any Verizon social post with #AllOurThanks on Facebook or Twitter, or posts on Twitter with #AllOurThanks, between 1/18/19 and 2/8/19, Verizon will donate $1, up to $1.5 Million, to the Gary Sinise Foundation’s First Responder Outreach program.
