Helmets for Heroes

The Helmets For Heroes banks are a model of protective use of the Red Cross emblem by the armed forces, not a brand of the American Red Cross. The Red Cross logo marks military medics as being out of combat. The American Red Cross is not affiliated with or benefiting from this fundraiser.

Helmets For Heroes Marketing Materials

We are offering flyers/posters in three sizes which can be downloaded and saved to either your hard drive which you can then print immediately or on the more massive size posters you can download and save to a Jump Drive and then take it to a printer to have it printed.  We suggest you place them in your Post and surrounding businesses.  The artwork can also be used as press releases in your local publications and newspapers to encourage residents in your community also to get involved.

Another option would be to change your Facebook’s Cover Header to the “Helmets for Heroes" Fundraising Campaign and once you like our Facebook page, then go ahead and invite all your friends to like us too.  I have three options on the banners, banner 1 is for personal Facebook pages (it allows your profile photo to cover part of the banner) (It is 851×315 pixels), banner 2 is for business Facebook pages (the profile photo does not lie on the cover photo) (It is 851×315 pixels) and banner 3 is if you happen to have a website that can take a banner, (it is 900×300 pixels).
