Driven2Honor ~ Veteran’s Day

So how did you spend your Veteran’s Day?

Me – I was on an editorial shoot, so this post is a little late in launching, but still valid nonetheless.

I want to tell you about a charity that

specifically works with female veterans.

My dear friend Jennifer Jo Cobb is a racecar driver

in both the NASCAR Nationwide Series and 

the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Team member (and very close friend) Denise Harmon-Mixon, Jennifer and me, trackside at qualifying,PIR

Jen has a charity called Driven2Honor,

which honors female veterans.

At every race 2 local female vets

who have won prestigious garage and pit passes,

 get to experience full VIP treatment

On top of that Jennifer has a full line of merchandising

for the Driven2Honor program, helping to raise money

for female veterans returning home from deployment.

There are 6500 homeless female veterans here in the USA.

Driven2Honor is geared toward raising funds to secure

them a safe place to live, and also to empower female veterans

with career resources to start their new life,

including mentorship, retraining, technology assistance

 and even wardrobe. 

You can do your part to help female veterans by 

purchasing items from the Driven2Honor collection.

 

Also, inspite of the incredible financial burden on small race teams, Jennifer is donating 10% of sponsorship funding for the 2013 season to the Driven2Honor program. 

Jen and me, no doubt talking about boys or haircare products or makeup, trackside at Phoenix International Raceway.
