Our home is near two United States Military Bases. We have friends, neighbors, and co-workers who are personally affected by deployments and stressful responsibilities that come with being a member of a military family. Several people in our family are US Veterans. Members of the US Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force. They have carried burdens so that civilians like us can have peace of mind, and live the lives we lead.
I’m so thankful for the service of the men and women we know, and those whom we have never even met.
As you know, I’ve been working with Brawny to help you show your appreciation for our national heroes by signing the Wall of Thanks. As part of this initiative, the goal of Brawny Towels was to raise $500,000 by the end of the year. I am thrilled to announce that this goal has been achieved, and was even surpassed! You can continue to sign the wall of thanks and leave messages for military members and their families.
But what else can we do? Some ideas for how you can continue to show thanks and serve those who unselfishly serve for our sake and the sake of our entire Country.
Offer your services. Babysit, clean, or shop for a Mom or Dad who becomes a “single parent” during deployments
Write it down. Letters of thanks, Christmas cards and packages help brighten the day of those serving far from home.
Volunteer. Whether you donate your time, gather donations or offer support, there are so many ways to help. The National Military Family Association is a great place to start.
Donate financially. Again, there are so many organizations that could benefit from your financial contributions. Through this campaign, I’ve discovered Wounded Warrior Project™ and I will supporting them because I love the work they do.
What other ways can we help our military members and veterans?
Please chime in!
