In addition to the therapeutic benefits of healing Hartman found through working on arts & crafts, he discovered a way to give back to other veterans in the same situation he had been in by volunteering at his local VA medical center.
"I love helping other veterans with their crafts. It helps me as much as it helps them." Hartman said that there was another "incredible benefit" of working on the arts and crafts that he didn't realize at first. At the time of the accident, Hartman was smoking two to three packs of cigarettes a day.
"After I started doing crafts, I noticed the more I created the less I smoked. It wasn't anything intentional; it was just that when I worked on crafts I wasn't thinking about smoking."
Hartman urges other veterans suffering from pain or wishing to get their minds off of a smoking habit to try the amazing benefits of working on arts and craft kits from Help Hospitalized Veterans (HHV).Since 1971, HHV has donated over 28 million kits to veteran and military patients worldwide.
