Military Vet Challenges Hollywood Actors to Help Real-life Vets Create Jobs
October 31st, 2016
San Diego, CA— October 31st — Allen Foreman, a Marine Corps veteran, online business expert and author, announces the Hero’s Book Sponsorship Program, a campaign designed to empower vets through successful online business development.
Foreman, author of ‘Monetizing the Net for Vets’ — a unique guide for vets to acquire technology-based entrepreneurial skills and strategies – also challenges actors who played in military roles to help real-life vets by sponsoring the distribution of books to those who need them most.
Beginning in October, he’s featuring 30 actors through a series of 30 self-produced short films – posting one film online per day. Actors featured in his short films include, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Bacon, Bruce Willis, Ice Cube, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sylvester Stallone, Jeremy Renner, Kiefer Sutherland, Alec Baldwin and Don Cheadle. So far, Don Cheadle accepted the challenge. Alec Baldwin retweeted the challenge.
Foreman understands the challenge vets often face when reentering the workforce. Years before authoring books, building websites and working on projects for celebrities like Steve Harvey, he struggled to find gainful employment after he got out of the military. Now, with over 15 years of experience helping clients win with online marketing, he’s sharing what he learned.
“Everyone wants to enjoy freedom — freedom of choice, freedom to express our ideas, freedom to work toward our dreams,” Foreman says.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more than 573,000 unemployed American veterans seeking work.
The Hero’s Book Sponsorship Program partners with individuals, organizations and companies to provide copies of ‘Monetizing the Net for Vets’ directly to veterans and veterans’ groups at no cost to the recipients.
The VA Medical Center in San Diego holds copies of the book and Foreman aims to obtain additional book placement and sponsorship opportunities across the country.
The program’s goal is to provide 10,000 books to veterans by Veterans Day, November 11th. Interested sponsors are invited to join the campaign at www.MonetizingTheNet.com/vets.
