Xtreme Couture GI Foundation now Accepting Applications for Financial Aid

The end of the year is fast approaching along with the joyand stress of the holidays!

For these service men and women who have suffered debilitating injuries while in defense of freedom, the holiday can be a particularly trying time of year.  That is why Xtreme Couture GI Foundation has created an online application that any service person who has suffered a grievous injury while in defense of our country can access and apply for financial aid to assist in their recovery and help make the holidays and the new year as wonderful as they deserve.

In the past, we have worked with the historic Walter Reed Army Medical Center and other worthwhile organizations like the Armed Forces Foundation to help us find individuals in need.  This year, however, we wanted to have a more personal approach to the distribution of funds and allow veterans to share their story directly with us.

The application is designed to help us find those truly in need financially and we encourage family and friends to nominate the wounded warrior who is special in their life and in need of our help.  The application deadline will be November 15, 2011 and recipients will be notified by December 15th, 2011.

We would like to take a moment to thank all of our supporters who have so generously donated their time and money to our cause over the past year.  We hope that those of you who attended our poker tournament last October, our motorcycle rally last May and those who plan to run in the Coyote Springs Trial Run in Las Vegas sponsored by Elemental Running and Pardee Homes on October 30th will attend our events in the future and continue to help XCGIF help others.

We would also like to extend a special thank you to the many celebrities who have given of themselves to us over the past year including Jay Glazer, Fox NFL Analyst; Marcedes Lewis of the Jacksonville Jaguars; Michael Strahan, NFL legend, actor Kevin James; illusionist Criss Angel and many others including our MMA friends Big John McCarthy,  Frank Mirr, Gray Maynard and so many more.  And last but not least, our staff, trainers, and fighters of Xtreme Couture MMA!
Thanks to all for a great year!

The Xtreme Couture GI Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation, was founded by Randy Couture to honor the veterans of America’s armed forces. The foundation was especially formed to raise money and awareness for those wounded in action and their families. To date, more than 24,000 U.S. troops have been wounded in the war against terrorism, which doesn’t include the many more suffering the mental effects.

Many of the injuries are traumatic amputations, gunshot wounds, burns and blast injuries that will retire these brave men and woman from the armed forces. Even though some of these men and woman are severely injured, they have the courage, strength and determination to win this battle.

The Xtreme Couture GI Foundation goal is to help these brave men and women fulfill any of their unmet needs as they return back to civilian life.
