Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 30, 2012

Blinds.com (http://www.blinds.com), the world´s largest online window covering store, was honored to help welcome a wounded soldier into his new home in Tomball, TX on June 23rd, 2012 with a house full of 2-inch custom wood blinds.

Marine Cpl. Daniel Peterson survived an explosion in Afghanistan that left him a double amputee in 2010. He received a key to his new wheelchair accessible home from the Homes For Our Troops organization (http://www.homesforourtroops.org) surrounded by fellow veterans, area business leaders and supporters.    

“Our team was moved at the opportunity to give even the smallest token of our appreciation to Cpl. Daniel for his services and sacrifice for our country,” Blinds.com PR Manager Katie Laird said. “From the Cub Scout Pack 1213 raising over $15,000 for home furnishings to the tremendous local business support, the outreach for this brave soldier was a touching and well-deserved tribute.”

The specially outfitted and furnished home was built by the national non-profit Homes for Our Troops with the support of numerous organizations including SpawGlass, Finger Furniture and many more.
