At Living Patriot, we are actively looking for charities that are dedicated to helping our troops, active, and retired. When good work is being done, we think everyone should sit up and take notice. We have identified a few charities that we are building relationships with. If it were possible, we would try to support all of them. Of course, this isn’t reality. So we will continue to support those charities that we have identified, look for more, and be sure to give props, where props are due.
We have recently heard about the charity Building Homes for Heroes. This organization collects donations from individuals and corporations in order to help disabled and severely wounded veterans as they try and rebuild their lives.
“Building Homes for Heroes is committed to supporting these extraordinary men and women, with a goal to build homes for families in dire need. We believe that it’s our responsibility to support those who have been called upon to make the ultimate personal sacrifice to protect and safeguard our country by fighting America’s War on Terror.”
We are thankful for so many who do so much to help! But there is SO much more that needs to be done. As a society, it is our responsibility to remember those who have served our country and provided the security which we all enjoy! Each of these warriors also have families and loved ones that have sacrificed for us. Let’s do all that we can to support them. If every person in this country took just a little time and donated a little money to help these charities, a great work could be accomplished.
So, for the Holidays, we at Living Patriot would like to encourage everyone to identify a charity in their local area that is directly helping our troops or our veterans and give them a little gift, write a paragraph or two about what you have given and how feel about those that serve, seal it in an envelope and put it on your Christmas Tree. Then, after all the gifts have been opened, before everyone runs off with their new toys, and there is a quiet moment, open that envelope and share that last gift as a memorial to those who provide the blanket of freedom under which we all sleep.
