Hanks has started a business called Hanx For Our Troops and the first products will be cups of joe. Specifically, the company is releasing three blends – First Class Joe, SGT. Peppermint and Tom’s Morning Magic Blend, People magazine reported.
Coffee will start shipping this month, and coffee connoisseurs can choose from instant coffee grounds, pods or sticks.
The company said 100% of profits go to support veterans and their families.
Hanks wrote on GiveHanx.com, “Our products support everyone who has served America – past and present – on active duty, as veterans, and their families. By choosing our coffee, you are helping support those who have chosen to dedicate their time and effort to defending our freedoms for the good cause that is the American Way. Every penny of profit says “thank you”. We owe them our gratitude, huh?
The website also shares stories from several veterans.
In addition to roles such as Woody from the “Toy Story” franchise and Fred Rogers from “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”, Hanks has appeared in and/or produced several war movies such as “Saving Private Ryan”, “Band of Brothers” and “The Pacific”.
France awarded Hanks the Legion of Honor for his work on World War II projects, Fox News reported.
Hanks also aided the Hidden Heroes group with the help of former Senator Elizabeth Dole and Jessica Allen, two military wives whose husbands were injured in service to the country.
