HERO'S WISH ARTIST PROJECT

Since the beginning of Hero's Wish we have been able to fulfill almost 80% of the approved Wishes…not a bad record BUT not one we are satisfied with!! In many cases we are able to secure donated tickets (or monies donated by generous donors) to make our Hero's Wishes come true but now and then there comes a Hero's Wish where the tickets can’t be donated or the funds needed to make the Hero's Wish a reality just too much so we put on our thinking caps, pounded the pavement. The result is the "HERO'S WISH ARTIST PROJECT". The artists listed below have decided to step forward and give of their time & considerable talent to donate works of original art to help Veteran Tickets Foundation create a fund to draw from when we come across the more difficult Hero's Wishes to fulfill. You will see below a list of Artists along with each of their donated pieces, the start date of their auction, a brief bio and a link to their web page. We encourage you to browse the pieces listed below…bid on any you would like to have as your own and pass along news of these auctions to as many people as you can. Our goal is to leave no Hero's Wish left unfulfilled, with your help we can make that happen!!

Below we will list art work pieces, along with links to current auctions or selling prices, which 100% of those funds go to fund Hero's Wishes.

Universal Studios Orlando
Hey everyone! I'm Major Michael Ketcham, on my 3rd deployment away from family. My kids are growing up very quickly, and I'm lucky enough to be able to video chat with them and get many pictures! I have 2 boys and 2 girls all under the age of 11. They paired up and provided me 2 little stuffed animals that I can take with me everywhere I go. I take pictures of them helping me with all my tasks so the kids can be a part of what I'm doing! When I get back, I would love to take the family to Universal in Orlando Florida. My wife is a stay-at-home mom, it is hard to take a large family on a big vacation on a single-income budget. With the money I've saved up from this deployment, I would love help in purchasing 6 Armed Forces Salute tickets! We receive AMAZING support from those we protect, and I'm truly grateful for everything! GOD BLESS!

Post deployment family trip to Disneyland for daughter's birthday
MSgt John Escalante USMC, 21 year veteran, on my 11th deployment scheduled to return in April 2018 just in time for my daughter's seventh birthday. I understand what I do is for country and Corps but it weighs heavy on the family being gone all the time. Since my daughter's birth, this is my third deployment, first one being just three days after she was born. It would mean the world to me if my supportive wife Emily, daughter Dylan, and myself could spend the weekend at Disneyland for Dylan's birthday and to celebrate my safe return home. We are respectfully requesting (3) 3 day park hopper tickets to Disneyland.

Disney World Dream Vacation
Hello everyone! I'm SFC McBride, I am on my 4th deployment. I have been in the Army for 16 years. I have missed so many significant moments with the family. We haven’t had time to make it to 1 family reunion while I have been in the service. My wife Veronica was also in the service, but had to get out because of complications with our triplets during birth. Our family has been through a lot with me being away during deployments and military training. My wife has been the backbone of this family for many years, abandoning her dream to serve our country and becoming a stay at home mom. We have 7 kids total (1 set of triplets, my baby boy has autism in the pic with his head down) and I could never be able to balance life the way she does it on a daily basis. My kids are Lem Jr 12, Cassidy 10, Jayden 8, Ladarius 6, Aloni, Amari, Aloni all three are 5. During this deployment, my 2 oldest sons have stepped up and tried to fill my shoes with supporting my wife with the little ones. I want to show my wife and kids that I’m very grateful for their patience and support. I want to take the family to Disney World in Florida for 3 days. I am just asking for assistance with purchasing tickets. I have saved enough during this deployment to pay for lodging, and transportation. I return home around June and want to plan our trip in July. A trip to Disney World is a one in a lifetime dream for our family, but because of the size it’s very difficult. A friend told me about the Hero's Wish and this gave me hope that our dream could actually come true. Thank you so much and I'm truly grateful for any support. GOD BLESS!

Family Trip to Disney World
Hello my name is SGT Jeremy A. Looman. I just returned from Ukraine in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve with the Army National Guard. My youngest son, Sean, was born on the first day that I deployed to Ukraine. I returned a 2 weeks ago, and could only afford to take a week off before returning back to work. I have spent over 4 years in a combat zone, most of that time on Active Duty status with the 173D ABCT. It would mean the world to me spend time with Sean, and the rest of my beautiful family. My wish is for 6 Disney World Park Hopper Passes. My wife is amazing, such a sweet person and so deserving of a vacation. Even if this wish doesn't come true, I feel blessed to have served in the United States Army and the National Guard. My beautiful family consists of 7 but only need tickets for 6 because Sean is so young. Jenny my beautiful wife, Kyra (13), Halle (11), Jeremy Jr. (5), Jace (3), and Sean (7 Mo) and myself.

Disney World Vacation
Hello, my name is SSG Phi Nguyen and I just recently returned home from my 2nd deployment and wish to take my family on a vacation to Disney World. After my 1st deployment I was unable to take them anywhere on a vacation so I would love to surprise them this time around with a trip to Disney World. Although this was only my 2nd deployment, I have missed countless birthdays, anniversaries, multiple holidays and school functions which has been really tough on my family, not just myself. I want to let my family know that I appreciate them for all their sacrifices that they have had to make while I was away. I would love to have three 4-day park hopper passes to Disney World. Thank you so much for any help in making my wish for my family dream come true. I greatly appreciate all the support.

Disney World Family Vacation
My name is Eric Perkins. I was a Specialist in the NY Army National Guard 2-108th Infantry. I enlisted in July 2001. After September 11th, I was called to active duty for two years to assist with homeland security. I then deployed to Afghanistan from 2007-2008 where I was a member of a six-man team that embedded with and trained the Afghan National Police. In July 2008 I suffered a head injury when a suicide bomber attacked my vehicle; for which I received a Purple Heart. I returned home to my wife and my 3 amazing children; Tyler 8, Owen 6, and Isabella 4. Isabella was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation when she was just a year old and subsequently had to have a neurosurgeon perform a decompression surgery. She has aspiration and reflux problems that require her not drink and receive her hydration by J-tube. Additionally she has sleep apnea which requires her to wear a bi-pap mask while sleeping. Providing the care she, and her brothers, need can be overwhelming at times but we have received the help of some amazing people along the way. All of the kids love Disney but Isabella absolutely loves Frozen. During one of her hospital stays (28 days) she insisted Frozen be played on a loop the entire time. I dream of seeing all of their delight in experiencing the Magic of Disney World. I simply cannot afford to make it happen on my own right now. I am thankful for the existence of this program for all those who it has already helped and I am now humbly wishful it can assist me in creating unforgettable memories for my entire family. I would like to request (5) 4-day Park Hopper Passes to Disney World.
