Today another modest but heartfelt donation of $30. on behalf of XIZOZU™ Medals of Honor was sent to one of the supported causes, chosen by you, our friends and fans.

Operating under the belief that every little bit helps, we’re glad to support Project Heal and look forward to making future contributions as we continue to grow in reach and popularity.
