Darius Rucker is taking time to honor America’s military caregivers.

The country star took to Twitter with a special message for his followers. He invited everyone to RSVP to a special event called Heroes and History Makers. Other stars in attendance include Tom Hanks, Adam Driver, Tim McGraw, and Hilary Swank. Similarly, Darius Rucker will be there, of course.

“America’s military caregivers have stood by their veterans,” Rucker wrote. “It’s our turn to stand with them. On Oct. 20th at 8pm ET, I’m proud to join @dolefoundation to share the story of caregiver Briarly Wilson, one of our nation’s 5.5 million #hiddenheroes. RSVP: http://hhm2020.org”

The Heroes and History Makers 2020 Event is put on by the Elizabeth Dole foundation every year. The event takes place on October 20 at 8:00 PM ET. First of all, it’s free and anyone can join. Second, Tim McGraw will receive the Tom Hanks Caregiver Champion Award for his support of military and veteran caregivers. Third, there will be plenty of celebrities in attendance.

“Through this star-studded, virtual celebration, we will share the inspirational stories of hope and sacrifice of America’s military caregivers, and salute the resilience and strength of this community,” the official event page reads.
“In telling their stories, we ensure the individuals who care for those who answered the call to serve our country never have to face their challenges alone.”

Darius Rucker and his altruistic efforts for veterans

Rucker is no stranger to making veterans’ days. In the past, he surprised a man with a brand new home. He helped to gift U.S. Army Specialist Daniel Branham a home as part of another project. Branham believed he was simply receiving tickets to one of Rucker’s shows. However, Branham soon caught on. He posed with Rucker for a smiling photo showing his appreciation.

This is a cause near and dear to Rucker’s heart. It should be exciting to see him working alongside the rest of the team to make veterans’ dreams come true. The singer seems to be looking forward to letting those who work hard to take care of loved ones have the spotlight.

In other words, Darius Rucker is going to make some viewers’ day. Best to tune in and see what ends up happening.
