Tis The Season! #2: Iraq Stars Inc.

For my second highlighted charity I selected IraqStar

Iraq Star Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the necessary reconstructive surgeries to assist war veterans recovering from physical and mental injuries. It's the Foundation's hope that reconstructive surgery will also help our veterans heal from emotional trauma, increase self-esteem, and ease their return from their pre-war lives.

I seen them highlighted in an episode of American Chopper. Seems like such a great "filling the gaps" type of charity. Providing much needed non life threatening cosmetic surgery for injured veterans. The VA facilities are often only capable of basic surgery, just enough to allow the vet to function in day to day life. Iraqstar takes that one step further. Great charity.
