As you know this is Monday and once again I write to remind you of the importance of supporting our Military and their families. We do this daily but it is nice to set one day aside and highlight the men and women who so bravely serve our great country. There are many great organizations that are truly dedicated and devote their life’s mission in seeing that our servicemen and women’s needs are seen too. One such group is Angels for Hope.The president of the organization recently shared with me a letter she had received and it was a true testimony to the service that they provide. I am so proud to be able to share this with you and I hope it instills in you an urge to do all you can do to help those who give so much for us…..
“One of our sons was killed in Iraq in August 2006. Needless to say, the past 6 months has been the most difficult of our lives. A few weeks ago we began receiving angels and butterflies in the mail from The Angels for Hope. We’ve gotten at least one a day since they began arriving. My family has been so moved by the experience, and want to thank all of those responsible for helping us to find strength during this most difficult period. I’ve been collecting angels for a few years now, and my son had given me a few angels to add to my collection before his death. It’s occurred to me that maybe he’s still sending them to me now ~ through you. They mean more to me than you can possibly know. Thank you for this gift.”
I am very proud to know such people that are so willing to go the extra mile and give back to our Military for all they have gone through and for the sacrifices made. There are many such organizations that offer help as well. But I strongly recommend that you contribute to the Angels for Hope! Outside of helping those who serve now or those who have served they have added another very special mission, one that I want to share….
Angels for Hope has been trying to reach out to all the Fallen Soldier families. As you can imagine it’s hard to obtain the information due to privacy issues. We are always looking for contacts or ways of getting the word out about our program You can view it here:
