Payne Family Christmas – Hillier Ignite

The Hillier Ignite Team shares Christmas with a very deserving Hampton Roads Veteran and his family…
The Payne’s, like many other military family’s in the middle of a Medical Retirement, are in flux.

Hillier Ignite wanted to ease their burden by providing gifts that would not only make an impact, but would alleviate the stress and burden of that transition.

With four special needs children whose care is provided at the Portsmouth Naval Hospital, and knowing that they must travel back and forth to the hospital many times a week, we provided them with $1000.00 in gas cards.

Along that same line, they needed new tires for the Payne’s vehicle, so Hillier Ignite is buying 4 new tires.

All families needs to eat, so we provided $1000.00 in Food Lion gift cards.

Every military retiree or veteran who has lived in Base Housing faces the stressful task of finding affordable housing once their service is up and they must vacate their base housing. Hillier Ignite is alleviating that stressful situation by paying for a year of rent at a house of the Payne’s choice.

Hillier Ignite Presents Two Warrior for Warriors Awards

Two Virginia Organizations Recognized For Their Outstanding Work in Support of Our Active Duty Military, Veterans and Their Families

Hillier Ignite, an organization dedicated to promoting democracy and freedom by creating opportunity, today announced two recipients of the Ignite Warrior for Warriors Award for 2014.  The announcement came at the ADS sponsored, Warrior East Expo, a trade show held yearly at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.  The Ignite Awards annually recognize and reward outstanding achievements in each of Hillier Ignite’s core focus areas: entrepreneurs/innovation, youth/community, and active duty military/veterans and their families.

Hillier Ignite Warrior for Warriors Award
The Hillier Ignite Warrior for Warriors award was created to ignite broader awareness and support for organizations assisting veterans and military families, by both recognizing and financially supporting their impactful work. In 2014, Hillier Ignite elected to present not only one, but two Warrior for Warriors Awards.  The Ignite Warrior for Warriors Award includes an unrestricted grant of $25,000.

“When my team brought me the finalists, and we reviewed our standards for selection, it became apparent that picking one of these organizations over the other was going to be very difficult, but I got fired up at the opportunity to recognize both of these awesome organizations,” said Luke Hillier, Founder and President of Hillier Ignite.

Hillier continued, “We have so many great organizations caring for our warriors and their families, I decided to select two awardees this year,”

Wounded Wear Inc.
The first Warrior for Warriors Award was presented to the Wounded Wear Inc., a non-profit organization based in Chesapeake Virginia, dedicated to raise the national awareness of the sacrifice of wounded warriors, their families, and the families of fallen service members.  In support of this mission, Wounded Wear advocates on behalf and facilitates opportunities for those who have sacrificed so much, as well as providing free fashionable clothing kits and clothing modifications to wounded warriors that empower them to rediscover the hero within.  For more information please visit www.woundedwear.org

Hillier said, “Wounded Wear is an exceptional organization serving our battle injured veterans.  They have provided clothing packages and clothing modifications for countless Wounded Warriors since 2009.  What touched us at Hillier Ignite the most, was when we learned that Wounded Wear has sent packages out to Purple Heart Recipients dating as far back as the Vietnam War.  Now that’s dedication that knows no boundaries.”

Boulder Crest Retreat Foundation
The second Warrior for Warriors Award was presented to the Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness.  Boulder Crest is a rural sanctuary that provides free accommodations, recreational and therapeutic activities and programs to help our nation’s military and veteran personnel and their families recover and reconnect during their long journey of healing from physical and invisible wounds of war. The 37-acre retreat is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Bluemont, Virginia, just 50 miles west of Washington, D.C. The retreat is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is entirely funded through private donations from individuals, foundations and corporations. For more information about Boulder Crest Retreat please visit www.bouldercrestretreat.org

“One of Hillier Ignites main focuses is the transition of the warrior back to society from active duty.  The complexity of added physical or emotional traumas makes that transition more of a challenge.  Boulder Crest provides the warrior, and his or her family, ideal conditions to reconnect, while still receiving the support needed to make the transition, away from the surroundings of a traditional hospital. ”  said Hillier

“Since opening in September of 2013, Boulder Crest Retreat has been host to over 550 wounded warriors and their family members.  The retreat is honored to host our Nation’s Heroes and they do it by providing a sanctuary for healing through family rest and reconnection time and therapeutic retreats.” said Ken Falke, Chairman and Founder Boulder Crest Retreat.

About Hillier Ignite
Opportunity. Democracy. Freedom. Hillier Ignite is an organization dedicated to promoting democracy and freedom by creating opportunities.  Focusing on groups pivotal to our future success as a society – entrepreneurs, youth, and active duty military, veterans, and their families.  Ignite also serves to tell their stories, provide inspiration, motivate others to lend a hand.

Luke’s Trip to Hogar de Fe, June 2014 Day 3;

Day 3 of this trip was just one of those days where everything just seemed to come together perfectly.

A few of Team Ignite had the opportunity to really lean into these kids on a business centric field trip.

Aimar Group, a local, yet global transportation and logistics company, with a heart for Hogar de Fe, was good enough to host us, and the older kids, and provide us a tour, presentation, and most of all, real life narratives, of the company, the employees, and how to overcome the obstacles they face.

Members of the team that have been here before are familiar with having to encourage the kids to stand up, raise a hand, be known, and have a voice.  The kids were great.  They asked questions, and even in a few instances, asked follow up questions, which displayed they were not just appeasing us, but really paying attention, and listening tot he answers enough to want to dig deeper.

After the trip to Aimar Group, we took a trip to the Pool!  This was 3 hours of non stop laughter, fun, and more laughter.  What a treat for the kids, and for us…

Following the pool, is the most emotion filled 3 hours of any of our trips, the Fiesta.

The Fiesta is everything you would imagine it to be, music, dancing, fun, games, laughing, pinatas, candy, pictures, and most of all, love everywhere you look.  Followed by the immediate 180 turn of… the good-byes.

Tonight, we said good-bye to the beautiful kids from Hogar de Fe.  We tried not to make it harder for them, or perhaps they were trying not to make it harder for us.  But it made no difference, whether you have been here 3 times, 8 times, or this was your first time, if you were 60 years old or 5, this is a very hard thing to do.  Even after what may seem, (as a reader of this blog) as just 3 short days, you do not want to leave these kids tomorrow, and the emotion is very difficult to control.

Luke’s Trip to Hogar de Fe, June 2014 Day 2;

Generosity

The theme of this trip is Generosity.  And the greatest lesson we can teach these kids, and even the kids back home, is that generosity does not mean the transfer of items or currency from one person to another.  It can also mean the giving of time, of knowledge.  It can mean caring, mentoring, and trusting enough to share perhaps the most valuable, yet at the same time, most difficult slice of knowledge we all possess, our mistakes.

Today, the children at Hogan de Fe had school, and as to not disrupt their routine, we worked around them, obtaining time with them between classes, and helping in classes that we would be able to offer some expertise, like in the English class.

Some of us who have been to Hogar de Fe before had the pleasure to witness kids who could barely speak a word of English a year ago, act out full scenarios, in English, demonstrating not only their understanding of our language, but the inflections we use, and even at times, body language.

Some of our team even went as far as to wear masks and act as recognizable animals for the younger English class, so the children could identify, in English, the animal, or the animals sounds.

This day all came to a head when 6 hours of work was all ended by the most epic of all water balloon fights.  The water balloon fight itself lasted over 30 minutes, while the actual water balloons supply itself was depleted in less then 5 minutes.  For anyone taking notes, it’s not a great idea to start a water balloon fight at an orphanage that you do not know the location of every available bucket, but the children do.  We were all, very wet, and very happy.

After, we headed to the schools computer lab where we viewed the wedding video of Luke Hillier to Stephanie Ballard, now Stephanie Hillier.  Where they shared their views on what is considered to be the greatest of all giving, the giving of ones self through marriage.

We closed our day out with a group meeting, discussing much of what we had witnessed today, and some of yesterday.  This visit is, unfortunately, almost complete.  We are preparing to give 100% of ourselves to these kids tomorrow…

Luke’s Trip to Hogar de Fe, June 2014 Day 1;

“Why are we here?”

This trip to Hogar de Fe is just like all our other trips…. UNIQUE.

We have with us this time, a team of 30 people.  We have complete families on the Ignite team, some with members as young as 5 years old.

In talking to this team today, sometimes one on one in airport terminals, a reoccurring question began to blossom in the minds and voices of our team, “what are we doing?”  “why are we here?”

This reminded me of a message I once heard at a Wednesday night church service.  The theme of this message came from a book Experiencing Poverty: Voices of the Poor.  This theme is fairly simple, in asking the worlds poorest people, what is poverty, the answers were;

  • Shame
  • Fear
  • Uncomfortable
  • Depressed
  • Unhappiness
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Powerlessness
  • Inability to make self heard
  • Lonely

If you looked inward, or if you have a child of you own, and they display any one of these feelings, would you hand them a pair of shoes?  A winter coat?  Not to say these items aren’t needed, but what sounds like the actual NEED?

And while we are over $1 trillion in giving shoes and jackets to the worlds poor, what do they really need?  Why not just take a look?

Hillier Ignite’s D-Day Anniversary Link Roundup

From the Huffington Post:

Seventy years ago today, soldiers launched an attack that changed the world. Now few are left to tell the story of the D-Day landings, an audacious incursion into Nazi-occupied France credited as the game-changer for the Second World War.

The seas were rough that night and many of those crossing were badly seasick. But today, the weather was calm and bright as the flags were raised on the beaches where thousands died within hours of the attack.

Today, veterans, families and world leaders will gather to remember. We’ll bring you live updates and pictures from the day.

Hundreds of the last surviving D-Day veterans gathered on both sides of the English Channel, 70 years on from the momentous World War Two mission.

Some of the most enterprising and prolific photojournalism during World War II came from Henry Luce’s LIFE magazine.

Veterans, world leaders and hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world are expected to descend upon the beaches of Normandy this weekend to honor the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

Click here for information about the national D-Day events and memorials.

Cruise lines and river cruise companies will be commemorating the 70th anniversary of D-Day on and around June 6 this year, with special activities and excursions to World War II battlegrounds on the coast of Normandy.
