American Patriot Leads Charitable Endeavor to Support Armed Forces

Tenn. (August 6, 2014) – For years Charlie Daniels has been an avid
supporter of America’s military and now the Journey Home Project, a
501c3 organization, has enlisted Daniels as the Chairman of the Board. 
In 2009, Daniels began hosting a yearly fundraising dinner at The Palm
restaurant where money raised would be donated to various military
charities.  In 2012, Daniels and David Corlew, co-founder of Journey
Home Project, started the Charlie Daniels Scholarship for Heroes Fund as
part of the Yellow Ribbon Education Program to raise money to allow our
military heroes to receive an excellent education.  Now, in 2014, along
with partners Joe and Mercedez Longever, the Journey Home Project has
been established to cultivate and bring all fundraising efforts under
one umbrella.

“The Journey Home Project was born out of a need and helps create
awareness, reaching out to people who might not come into contact with
soldiers on a daily basis, but who care, we know that America is full of
people who want to help, but they’re not sure how,” says Joe Longever,
Journey Home Project board member.  “Our veterans have sacrificed so
much, they are proud that they have served their country and honored
that someone would think of them. We can’t forget this sacrifice.  If we
all do a little bit, it all adds up to a lot.”

The Journey Home Project exists to assist other not-for-profits in
securing funds to help causes that benefit Veterans of the United States
Armed Forces.

“Between Charlie and me, we have traveled abroad to so many military
bases to show support for our troops and it means so much to us
personally,” adds Corlew.  “Every time we do events or put fundraisers
together, people want to know where the money is going and how we can
help their situation. With the Journey Home Project, we can now make the
decisions on where the money will go and how it can best help those in

The Journey Home Project has already donated $22,500 to the Task
Force Dagger Foundation after raising funds at a private dinner.  The
next event planned will take place at The Palm restaurant on Tuesday,
September 9th, where Charlie Daniels will host a benefit for the Journey
Home Project.

The Journey Home Project organizational members include:
Charlie Daniels – Chairman of the Board
Mercedez Longever – Managing Director
David Corlew – Board member
Joe Longever – Board member
Ed Hardy – Board member
