What Makes a 2KHero?

What is a 2Khero? Or, better, what makes a hero? We all know about the Hollywood heroes … they rush into trouble to save those they love. They risk their lives for others and sometimes lose their own.

Jamie Jarboe  Is self-sacrifice in the face of mortal danger our guide? If so, there are hundreds of thousands of heroes in our military. In fact, just being a soldier, Marine, sailor or in the Air Force would make one a hero. I should add the Coast Guard as well. Maybe that’s the way it should be.

Who do you know who is a Veteran?

We all know someone who is a Veteran.  They don’t look any different… they seem to fit in, laugh at the same jokes, work hard, drive a car, have a job… well… most of them do anyway.  Some of the Veterans we know don’t have jobs… they struggle just like anyone else without a job… but they also have challenges to deal with. Combat caused mental, emotional, physical… It’s not as easy as you would think…

vet fear  You would think that after serving in our Military to protect us and keep us safe from terrorists and laying their life on the line that they would be treated fairly when getting back home… but that isn’t necessarily the case. In fact there are over 1 million military veterans who are without jobs and struggling to get a job to support themselves and their family.

2KonnectKares became aware of their struggle and has created a program to help these HEROs get a job to support themselves instead of living on welfare and losing faith in themselves. We can help!  We have developed the 2kHERO Scholarship Sponsorship Program that helps a veteran get back on their feet.  This program works and we are anxious to help as many veterans as are willing to get a job and make it a career.

2KonnectKares is asking for your help.  Will you help us provide a job for a veteran?  There are 2 ways to help. Donate a little and share this with as many as you can; on facebook, twitter, Linkedin, anywhere.  Even $5  or $20 helps.  The second way is to Sponsor a 2kHERO into the Scholarship program that will help a veteran start their own home business and grow it into a profit for them in just 4 short months.   The system works and we want to help tens of thousands of deserving veterans as we can.  Your support is needed.  Please donate today.

Go to www.Paypal.com and Send us a donation to donate@2konnectkares.org.  We will use these funds to help a veteran get a job that pays well, gets them off welfare and brings pride in a job well done.

Veteran losses hearing and employment…

#2kHero  #2KonnectKares   #VeteransHeroScholarshipProgram

When soldiers go to war, they often bring an unwanted souvenir home with them…a hearing loss. About Deafness/HOH interviewed a veteran, Doug Smith, who acquired a hearing loss:

Vet hearing loss 2

Smith Loses Hearing

Q: What happened in the military to cause your hearing loss?

A: I was a navy diver..and submarine sailor…I crushed my eardrums. This happened in 1976. Quite a few submarine sailors have hearing damage due to the pressures we deal with.

Q: How much of a hearing loss did you sustain?

A: Over 50 percent in both ears.

Smith Returns Home

Q: What kind of help did you get (medically) from the military? Were you given any assistive devices like a hearing aid (circa 1976 of course)?

A: The military gave no real help. The military didn’t really do anything about my ears. I got no disability to speak of. My case was transferred to the VA (Veterans Administration, now the Department of Veterans Affairs). I went for a hearing test and the VA said yep, you’ve got significant hearing loss. Have a nice day.

Q: That was 1976. Are things better today? If a veteran acquires hearing loss today, can that veteran look forward to better treatment than you got in 1976?

A: I would say probably not. Most of the medical help comes from the Veterans Admin. Don’t get me wrong. The military hospitals and the VA hospitals are great places, but there is not a whole lot medically they could do to help me.

Smith Gets Discharged

Q: What impact, if any, did this hearing loss have on your military career?

A: After 14 years (in the military) I was medically discharged for the hearing loss as well as a seizure disorder.

Articles on Veterans and Hearing Loss

Doug Smith is just one of many veterans affected by hearing loss. In addition to Mr. Smith, in one of my early college classes I encountered a veteran who had been deafened in the military.

This impacts their daily life as well as getting or sustaining a job to support themselves and their family.

Please consider donating today by visiting Paypal.com and sending a donation to donate@2konnectkares.org.  Anything helps, even $5.  But a donation of $250 will sponsor a veteran into a Home Business Scholarship that will build them a substantial income in just 4 months. Please donate today.

How Do I Look for a Job When I Can’t Afford Gas?

By Jackie

The job I lost

Hello. My name is Jackie and it’s been 1 1/2 yrs that I’ve been without work. My job closed on me unexpectedly and I’ve been looking for work every since then. Now my unemployment has been exhausted, there’s no money to pay something on bills and my rent is due. I need food on the table as well. Now without money coming in to put gas in my car, how do I go out and look for a job???  This is a no win situation!

What it’s like being unemployed

downes couch web Being without work is such a terrible thing , you have lost your sense of security. The family is depending on you and you can’t provide when you’ve been the backbone that supported them! You feel like you have let everyone down and you lose a part of your identity.

Editor’s Note: I have stories like this coming in every day.  The news says that the economy is strong… then where are the jobs and why are our Veteran Hero’s not getting work?  Our Sponsor 2KonnectKares has a solution that works for anyone willing to go to work.  It’s not a freebie, but it’s a scholarship that will help people get back on their feet, making the kind of money needed to put bread on the table and pay the bills. And it can benefit their friends and family as well. Please support the cause by donating something today. We have people who have donated just $5 and some who have donated $5000… it’s up to you and what you think it’s worth to help those who have fought to protect your right to work and play and be safe in this country. I think it’s worth a lot!  Just $250 will help to scholarship and build a job for a 2kHERO for 4 months that will grow into a solid career for them for a lifetime. Be supportive… donate today.

2KonnectKares non-profit Announces:

There are many American Veterans that have come home from serving our country and can’t find work for numerous reasons.  Challenges with health, with trust, with the economy, with education, and others. Yet they are respectable citizens of this great nation and we want to honor them and help them succeed as fellow citizens, family and friends.

2KonnectKares has taken on the daunting task of helping to find employment for over 1 million veterans who are out of work, can’t find work and yet want to work and be respected citizens.  There are lots of people and corporations who are helping them with services and benefits but these men and women don’t want charity or handouts as much as they want to work and earn their way.  Respect, Honor, Tradition, Valor – these are what they want. 

2KonnectKares has created the Veterans HERO Scholarship Program to get them started on a home based business that they can participate in and have the respect of earning an income from multiple sources that will provide more than enough to support themselves without government handouts or welfare.

But, it takes a source of funds to get them started. 2KonnectKares is building that source of funds through Donations, Grants, Business Growth and Humanitarian Funds to be able to help start the Veterans HERO Scholarship Program as soon as possible. Our soft-launch date is June 1, 2015 but can be move up if we get the funds needed to get started.

2KonnectKares has 5 Home Based Businesses ready to implement this program immediately once funding is available. We need $1067 a month for 4 months for each veteran we get started to help them make enough to sustain the expenses for themselves and their family.. Then, through education and training, they learn to continue and build those businesses on their own into ongoing income each month.  We also have services to help them save some each month for future needs, retirement and emergency, just like any other family would with a steady, beneficial income.

We need your help.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.” and so many small donations make up the big amount of support we need to help as many veterans as we can become successful, employed citizens of this great country, honoring them to succeed where many are now failing to find the employment they need.

The Veterans HERO Scholarship Program has been touted as the best practical benefit program for the unemployed veterans that has ever been conceived and employed.  Please consider donating as much as you feel comfortable with and we will put every dollar to work for veterans all over the USA that need this program to survive with Respect, Honor, Integrity and Valor.

God Bless the USA Veteran!
