Can makes a big deal about their support for Hire Heroes USA and how it assists veterans in finding employment. We certainly believe that HHUSA is a very valid, useful, and empowering entity. Why they would want to have their name associated with these people is beyond me.
Publicity articles touting CAN’s involvement have peppered the internet for the better part of 2 months, CAN displays the HHUSA badge on their website and even posts press releases about the efforts. One of the press releases on their (CAN) website even displays something called a “leader board” with the names of those companies and individuals making donations. On the Hire Heroes USA website it displays the amount raised by each individual and/or company. On the Career Agents Network site, the dollar amounts are missing. A little more digging and you’ll find that the entire donation and fundraising efforts of CAN resulted in TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS of the more than 60 Thousand that was raised. Since it spends about $2,000 on each veteran they assist, CAN’s 2 month fundraising effort resulted in approximately 1/10 of one person being helped. CAN also vowed to donate $100 for each new member that signed up… so only two people missed the available due diligence information and signed up anyway?
Could they have gotten away any cheaper? I’m sure they would have if they could have.
Compare them for yourself, the one for CAN’s is on their website (or will be until they read this and remove or edit it with an “Oh that was just a glitch” comment), and Hire Heroes USA is located here:
