HELP FOR OUR HEROS
1. "Film Reference." Gary Sinise Biography (1955-). Web. 08 Apr. 2014. <http://www.filmreference.com/film/68/Gary-Sinise.html>.
A general source for information about Gary Sinise’s career, somewhat unnecessary, but helpful nonetheless. Provides background knowledge of Gary Sinise, albeit, not much of this information is used in the project, more of a context check to see why this foundation was, well, founded.
2. "Home | Gary Sinise Foundation." Home | Gary Sinise Foundation. Web. 08 Apr. 2014. <https://www.garysinisefoundation.org/>.
Website of the foundation. Provides details on purpose, events, both past and present, such as dates, times, and cause. Useful in determining the event and the type of images needed for said event. Heavily used in the project to determine why this is a cause to be supported, and what kind of event would be best for such a cause. It also provided the idea for the logo, that being the logo of the fou ndation on a football
3. "PMA Kid: Interview with Gary Sinise - Actor and COOL GUY!" PMA Kid: Interview with Gary Sinise - Actor and COOL GUY! Web. 08 Apr. 2014.
The author (PMA kid) purpose in doing the interview is to show not only how “cool” Gary sinise is, but also how he is helping the world. In the article, the PMA kid refers to another one of Gary’s works, Operation International Children. This reference would help back up how Gary helps everybody, but unfortunately this article will only help us with background and no actual product.
