ABOUT THE LOVE TATTOO FOUNDATION: The Love Tattoo Foundation is a non-profit organization that honors and helps American veterans who bear mental or physical scars while serving their country. Its mission is to raise funds and awareness to help give these veterans the opportunities they sacrificed, so others can have theirs.
The Love Tattoo Foundation was born out of the positive outcome of a truly devastating event. Law Enforcement Officer Charles “Chuck” Brisbin was moved by a story he heard about a young man who went to Afghanistan as a soldier for his country and returned disfigured. Being closely involved with our country’s military, Chuck was compelled to honor this man in every way possible, to show his humble gratitude. He then turned to poetry. Chuck wrote a beautiful poem called Love Tattoo. After finishing the poem, he wanted to go further by finding a voice that would be the spirit of his message; not only for this man, but for every man and woman who has sacrificed everything for what others have. Without hesitation, he turned to country music artist, Richard Lynch. Richard has a passion and respect for our military that should not be taken lightly. He was touched and honored to be asked to turn this poem into a song. Since then, Richard’s adaptation of the poem has literally brought veterans of all ages and walks of life to tears. From there, a greater cause was revealed. There are people between the ages of 18 and 81 who will carry with them mental and physical scars for the rest of their lives, because they fought for the freedoms of our citizens. The most shocking fact is that there is no designated organization specifically for these people and their needs. It has been brought to our attention that these men and women feel almost ostracized; they feel like damaged goods. With very little discussion, it was decided that the Love Tattoo Foundation would take a stand and help these amazing people. They should be uplifted and honored, not stored on a dusty shelf.
