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.

Disneyland
My name is TSgt David Velarde. I was in the US Navy for 10 years and decided to leave the Navy and join the US Air Force and have been in for the past 5 years.The toughest part about being in the military is watching your children grow up in pictures. I would love to be able to take my beautiful family to Disneyland to try to make up for all the missed birthdays and holidays. I would like to make a Hero's wish to request (4) Disneyland 3-day park hopper tickets for my family; My wife Shantay and three kids; David Andrew 15, Cheyanne 12, and Austin 2. Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God Bless.

Post Deployment Disneyland Wish
Hello my name is SSG Imelda Alaimaleata. I am proudly serving in the Army. I am currently deployed in Djibouti, Africa for 6 months, and I should be redeploying in July. This is my very first deployment, and so far this is the hardest, especially leaving behind my kids and spouse. Being away from family is one of the hardest things in life. As a soldier, this is the norm, because we would always be gone - whether it be deploying, attending schools, or in training. My wish is to take my family of four to Disneyland this July. I want to spend our family time and the remainder of summer at Disneyland before my kids go back to school. Also since I will be missing out on their birthdays this year. I want to make it up to my family! I would really appreciate it if you would help me and my family fulfill this wish. Thank you all & God Bless!!

Disneyland Park Hopper Passes
Hello, I am MSgt Douglas McGraw & have served in the USAF for 22+ years. I'm the 3rd generation of my family who's been proud to have served our great nation. My Grandfather was a WWII Battle of the Bulge and Dachau concentration camp liberator, my father who served in the 82nd Airborne from Dominican Republic, Air Cavalry in Vietnam 65 LZ X-ray and then finally the Gulf War in the Air National Guard. I myself have just returned from a 1yr deployment to Kandahar Afghanistan as an Advisor to the Afghan Air Force working daily side by side with my Afghan counterparts. I am married to my wife for 22yrs and been together for 24years. We have 2 grown children. This has been my 5th career contingency deployment among countless other times spent away from my wife who has been by my side faithfully for longer than my military career. The past year saw high stress and even family member death affect our whole family but our marriage in particular suffered. My wife and I have always been in unity in putting our children's needs above our own, to the point of signing over my GI bill to our children. Additionally while in Afghanistan I adopted a stray dog that strayed onto our end of the flight line in Kandahar that has made transition back to daily stateside life a bit stressful. My deep felt wish is to surprise my wife and take her on that long overdue fun filled vacation to show her and my girls how much I appreciate their support. If anyone is able to help bless us, I wish to take them on a 4 day Disneyland park hopper pass. I appreciate Vet Tix for giving Veteran's this amazing platform and to all those who support our men and women in uniform. God bless MSgt Douglas McGraw

Metallica Concert
My son and I are huge Metallica Fans (my wife a little too) and we were so excited when we heard about their 2017 tour. It is my wish that we could see them in San Diego (or Los Angeles) this year prior to me reporting to my next deployable unit. We've never seen the Metal Gods and it has been a dream of ours for a few years. I am a Navy Corpsman and will be assigned to a Marine Infantry unit whom I will soon deploy with. There is no preparation that gets your mind ready to leave your family for 6 months, all you can do is come together and make the best of the time you have with each other. This summer will be my family's last time together for a while, and attending the Metallica Concert would be a perfect send off and lasting memory for us to refer back to during our second deployment.

Disney World for my family
My name is Spc Stefan Zaldivar. I am currently serving on my second deployment away from my family and this one has been particularly hard on my wife and my three year old son as they have had to do everything on their own. My amazing wife has had to come mom, dad, driver, soccer coach, class teacher, on top of doing everything in the home on her own. Unable to take vacation because she took the time of to help me mobilize she is running on zero days off with a house two dogs and a toddler who is very confused as to why his daddy has had to miss Father's Day, His Birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, as well as this upcoming Christmas and other holidays. I am asking for 4 4-day park hopper tickets to allow me to repay my family for sacrificing so much while I have been gone and it getting these tickets it may help offset the cost to allow me to have them stay in a nice hotel and allow me to give them the magical experience that they deserve.

Post Deployment Family Vacation to Universal Studios
I am Master Sergeant Samuel Cole and I am currently deployed and have been since September 2016. My wife Kassandra is also active duty and is at home in Nebraska while I am away. She was most recently deployed from December 2014 through April 2015. We've had to cancel our plans three times due to these deployments and a PCS, to go to Universal Studios, Orlando with our children. We would both like to make up for these broken plans and take our four children to Universal Studios Orlando in September 2017. We are a blended family and one thing that has brought us all together is Harry Potter. It would be an incredible experience to get all of us together to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We would appreciate 3-day park to park tickets to lighten some of the cost of the trip. Thank you in advance. Sincerely, MSgt Samuel Cole, USAF
