My name is Mark Baird. I am the founder of HirePatriots.com. I write about everything that helps US veterans, the organizations that support them, and US small businesses.

Our mission is to create a nationwide jobs safety net for US veterans and their spouses. We are accomplishing this by creating HirePatriots chapters in every state. Here is our 7 step plan for doing so: http://www.hirepatriots.com/news-and-blogs/entry/starting-a-hirepatriots-chapter
HirePatriots is community service program that promotes patriotism and support of US veterans and their families. Our 501c3 non-profit is Patriotic Hearts. It provides a host of additional important services to our military members, past and present. HirePatriots is a volunteer project that involves students, senior citizens, residents, businesses, civic leaders and local TV, radio and print media. As a sponsor of our program, your company will also receive tremendous public relations benefits.
Because of our 501c3 status and great reputation on military bases, we also have multiple opportunities for companies to have a presence on US bases through the events and outreaches we host for them. And HirePatriots is often invited to have a presence at other events on bases sponsored by aligned veteran causes. As a sponsor of HirePatriots we will gladly exhibit your information at these events.
HirePatriots is a one-of-a-kind military outreach. We provide a free “One Day” job board for US residents to use to hire their local military and veterans when they need an extra hand around their homes and yards. This simple program provides critical extra income for veterans; but, it also enriches the lives of the civilian patriots that hire them. Read some comments here: http://bit.ly/TY2YTN
But it also stimulates local economies: HirePatriots received the “Visionary Award” for “creating economic development” in San Diego County.
Our uniqueness also opens doors on local News stations and newspapers. And we regularly receive national attention too. There are always opportunities for our business representatives to talk on our behalf in the media, at clubs and organizations and at patriotic and civic events.
If you would like to become a member, please contact us. HirePatriots business members are requested to make a donation to our 501c3 Patriotic Hearts non-profit that provides free and critical services to US veterans and their families. (EIN 20-8599179). To pay costs we must ask for a donation. After making your donation, a receipt and an agreement will be sent to you, as well as a link to give us the information you want on your HirePatriots website: pictures, links, videos, copy, etc. And then our team will work with you personally to assist you in getting our program up and running for you.
