On this Memorial Day weekend where the United States pays tributes to all military veterans, there’s an easy way to help support them through UFC middleweight Brian Stann’s charity foundation.

Hire Heroes USA is a non-profit organization that helps veterans find jobs after they’ve left the military, and this weekend through the Call of Duty Endowment there’s an easy way to contribute that doesn’t cost you a dime.

Just visit the Call of Duty Endowment Facebook page and share their Memorial Day image and for each post, the Call of Duty Endowment will donate $1 to the grant for Hire Heroes USA.

Fans can contribute from Thursday through Friday, June 1 at 11:59pm PT by sharing the image.

Last year, the campaign raised $36,000 for Hire Heroes USA, and the 2012 campaign is setting a new goal of at least 50,000 “shares,” translating to at least $50,000 raised for Hire Heroes USA.

The grant awarded by the Call of Duty Endowment to HHUSA will allow the organization to provide U.S. military veterans and their spouses with transition assistance, job search assistance, and job placement services. Proven services offered by HHUSA include career workshops, job fairs and job boards, and one-on-one coaching to match personal career interests and skills to the needs of partnering companies.

“Memorial Day is a national dedication to all of the brave soldiers who have defended this country,
and we are thrilled the Call of Duty Endowment again chose us to help honor the men and women of the Armed Forces,” said UFC middleweight Brian Stann.

“The contributions and awareness raised over the past two years through this campaign have assisted us tremendously, contributing to the sustained employment of more than 400 veterans and their spouses. As a retired marine, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to transition into the civilian workforce, and a campaign that engages the public in raising support and awareness is pivotal to solving the serious issue of veteran unemployment.”
