A conservative entrepreneur based in Georgia is sending a U.S. military veteran who is a double-amputee and Purple Heart recipient to the big game in Atlanta on an all-expenses paid trip of a lifetime in recognition of his service in Afghanistan.
Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Romulus Marketing (owner of Godfather Politics), has announced that he is giving the amazing trip to Afghanistan veteran, Army SPC Matthew Leyva.
Leyva’s life changed forever when he stepped on a pressure plate IED while serving in Afghanistan. He lost both his legs and several fingers on each hand and spent two months in a coma. It took more than two years to recover from the massive injuries he received.
Now, Brandon Vallorani, CEO of Romulus Marketing LLC (Dallas, Georgia), is taking SPC Leyva on the trip of a lifetime.
SPC Leyva is going on an all-expense paid trip to Atlanta that includes tickets to Sunday’s Big Game.
When Vallorani heard about Leyva’s sacrifice through a report by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which gave the double-amputee Purple Heart recipient a mortgage-free smart home in 2017, Vallorani knew he had to act.
Vallorani added that he knew he found the right veteran when he learned of the sacrifices of SPC Leyva and immediately invited him to Atlanta to see the big game from a wheel-chair accessible premium section at no cost to the veteran.
According to a press release:
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is named after firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on 9/11. The Foundation supports the military, first responders, and their families. Through the Smart Home Program, the Foundation builds smart homes that enable our most catastrophically injured veterans to live more independent lives. To date, the Foundation has delivered, started construction or is in the design stage of a total of 75 homes.
Brandon Vallorani, who calls himself a compassionate conservative, said that he and Romulus Marketing LLC have donated to a number of causes including 4Ocean, Charity:Water and other veteran groups.
“Our Mission at Romulus Marketing is to put our money where our mouth is,” says COO and donation manager Liz Martin. “We fully believe that the citizens of our country have a duty to privately contribute to charitable causes, and our hearts are particularly devoted to causes that help our veterans.”
“Partnering with Tunnel to Towers was a no-brainer,” Vallorani said. “I am forever grateful for veterans like Army SPC Matthew Leyva who made a great sacrifice to protect our nation and our freedoms. My family can live in peace because he was willing to put his life on the line. Taking Matt to the Big Game is one small way we could show our gratitude.”
Romulus Marketing also announced the addition of Tunnel to Towers Foundation to their ongoing charitable giving portfolio.
