MAKE A DIFFERENCE: WRITE TO A SOLDIER
Every fourth of July we celebrate America's independence. Its a day where we can rock as much red, white, and blue as possible while eating good food and soaking up the summer sun. Everyone has their different opinions on what it means to be an American. For a country so large, made-up of people so diverse, that comes as no surprise. But no matter how you feel about this country, we are people that want the best for ourselves and the generations to come.
We believe one of the best things about this country are the brave people that protect our freedom and rights. We appreciate the soldiers who risk their lives and sacrifice time away from their families to fight for the United States. Our gratitude is beyond measure, and cannot be expressed enough. This fourth of July we want to give back to those Americans that risk it all four our country.
Soldiers' Angels is a great non-profit that focuses on helping soldiers in various ways. From veterans to those that are deployed, there are many soldiers that can benefit from your love and support. We thought we would focus on one easy way that you can give back without having to spend money and only requires a small amount of your time--joining the letter writing team.
The letter writing team requires a small commitment of at least three months and one letter a month. By joining this team you are required to write a letter to a solider offering words of encouragement and support. Your words can have the power to make a difference for a solider who might be feeling down, lost, or scared. For a solider, hearing their named called to receive mail can be life changing. Writing letters has become a lost art in our age of fast-moving technology. But knowing someone took the time out to write a letter, and put their emotions into it will always be special.
