Thanksgiving Blessings To You And Yours

Wishing all of you a wonderful day.  I hope you have a lovely time with family and friends.  As we celebrate this holiday and go forward toward Christmas please remember our troops,  many of whom will be in far away places, separated from their loved ones during these months.  There are many organizations that will help you make it a better holiday season for them.  You can contribute a little or a lot.  Every level of support is welcome.

Soldier’s Angels –    Soldiers’ Angels is a volunteer-led
501(c)(3) nonprofit with hundreds of thousands of volunteers providing aid and
comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air
Force, Coast Guard, veterans and their families (Tax ID# 20-058-3415). 

Soldier’s Angels has a program where you can adopt a service member for the period of their deployment but you can also simply write letters.  You can send care packages of your own or they have very inexpensively priced pre-made care packages that you have delivered, one time or many.  That way you don’t have to worry about what to ship.  It’s all done for you.  You can include a note with the package or have it sent anonymously.  If you visit their website you’ll find myriad ways to help active duty military and veterans both directly and indirectly.  http://www.soldiersangels.org/

AnySoldier.com is another place you can visit to find opportunities to lend a hand.  You can pick specifically where you want your care packages to go and you can pick the branch of service you’d like to support with their affiliate sites I included a link to below.  http://www.anysoldier.com/

  • AnySoldier.com started 17 August 2003 as a simple family effort to help the soldiers in one Army unit, thus our name.
  • On January 1, 2004, AnySoldier.com was launched to include any member (both active duty and reservists), of any of the Armed Services, stationed in any areas in harm’s way.
  • On June 4, 2004, Any Soldier Inc. was formed as a non-profit charitable organization in Maryland and granted 501(c)(3) statusby the IRS in August 2004.
  • Starting in August 2005, Any Soldier Inc. opened the web sites of http://www.anymarine.com/   http://www.anysailor.com/   http://www.anyairman.com/   and    http://www.anycoastguardsman.com/

The Wounded Warrior project – This is another place to explore if you’re looking to find a place to participate.  You can read about the work they’re doing,  make donations (once or monthly) or buy sponsored gear of which a portion of the proceeds go toward helping wounded warriors adapt and heal.  http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you at home and abroad…

I always say that being thankful for the blessings in your life is a great start but SHOWING thankfulness is even better.  If none of my favorite organizations appeal to you please consider lending a hand to any charity organization of your choice.  Giving back is one of the things that keeps good things alive in the world.  It really does make a difference…
