If you watched the final episode of The Celebrity Apprentice, you saw Piers Morgan crowned as the winner. You also may have noticed that his charity was the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund — the same organization we made a significant contribution to during one of our Holiday Giving campaigns a couple years ago.
For the past few years our staff has decided that it’s better to give than receive, so we’re pooled our personal and corporate gift money and chosen a worthy charity — one giving a “hand-up” rather than a “hand-out.” The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund provides help to U.S. military personnel who have been wounded in the line of duty and also for their families.
It turns out that this organization holds a special place in Piers’ heart — his brother has served two tours of duty in Iraq, and his brother-in-law has served two tours in Afghanistan.
We, too, try to do our part and were honored with a commemorative medallion, a special listing in their hard back book and a special title placed near the entrance to the Center for the Intrepid, the National Armed Forces Physical Rehabilitation Center.
Believe it or not, Tony and Nick were at a tradeshow in San Antonio a couple weeks ago and happened to visit the Fund’s state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility . . . the very next day after Piers won his Apprentice job! Of course, it was the same facility that appeared in the final episode of Celebrity Apprentice and that we helped build.
