GMC Raises Awareness for Wounded Veteran Smart Home Charity

Actor Josh Duhamel Lends Support to Building for America’s Bravest

May 19, 2016
May is the unofficial kickoff to the summer holiday season, but it is also Military Appreciation Month. In addition to its discount program for all veterans through May 31, GMC is also raising awareness for wounded veteran’s charity Building for America’s Bravest, which builds specially equipped smart homes for severely wounded veterans to help them become more independent and self-sufficient through the use of technological innovation. The charity currently has a waitlist of more than 200 applicants waiting to move into their smart homes. GMC has committed $2 million to the cause by the end of 2016.
To help get the word out, GMC is enlisting the help of actor Josh Duhamel of Transformers and Las Vegas fame. Duhamel, a GMC owner since 2004, said he grew up near a base in North Dakota and has several family members that have served in the military, so his support for the cause was a given.
GMC is promoting the awareness campaign with the hashtag #enlistme and doing video profiles on Army Staff Sergeant Stephen Valyou and Marine Corporal Todd Love and giving them a chance to skydive, despite their injuries. Full videos of their skydives will be posted on May 21. In the meantime, you can watch the preview videos and profiles below.
