A portion of American Hero's sales go to various nonprofits to help veterans.

To aid veterans during the giveaway, SoldierStrong, an organization that raises money for bionic suits to help severely injured/paralyzed veterans walk again, will be on location collecting money.

Rosati Ice is calling the giveaway Rosy Day and plans on hosting the event each year on the Friday before the Fourth of July.
