Be An Angel

Beth at My VRWC reminds me today that Soldiers Angels, a charity devoted to giving assistance to our brave men and women standing guard over America and liberating the oppressed, has started their annual fundraising drive. Here's a description of what this group does to support the troops:

The Soldiers' Angels was started by a self-described "ordinary mother" of an ordinary young man turned hero, Corporal Brandon Varn. Brandon was deployed in Iraq and has since honorably completed his mission and has returned back to his proud and loving family.

In the summer of 2003, he wrote home expressing his concern that some soldiers did not receive any mail or support from home. Being a caring and loving mother, she decided not to allow a situation like that to continue. She contacted a few friends and extended family to ask if they would write to a soldier or two.

Within a few short months, The Soldiers'Angels Foundation went from a mother writing a few extra letters to an Internet Community with thousands of angels worldwide and growing stronger with the addition of new members daily. With more and more merchants donating services, money and items for packages, the Angels reorganized as a 501 c 3 non-profit foundation. On February 26, 2004, Soldiers' Angels formed the Alliance of Angels, proving with our allies we find new strength that better enables us to complete our mission of providing tangible caring support for our military.

Let's make sure all of our men and women in the military know how special they are to us. Drop a bit of cash in their tipjar.
