On this Memorial Day, please take a moment to remember our fallen heroes.
To support and honor our military families, I created these Support the Troops bracelets. Personalized bracelets with initialed hearts that you see in the last photo are available here!
While searching for an organizations that help families who have lost their loved ones to combat, I I came across the American Widow Project (AWP), the non-profit organization dedicated to helping grieving windows and widowers. All proceeds from the sale of these bracelets will go to the AWP. Please visit http://www.americanwidowproject.org/ to learn more about the organization.
I came across several other organizations that support military families, including Operation Hug-A-Hero and Operation Shower. In several months (or upon reaching a milestone of $350, which is the cost of sending a widow to a AWP retreat), I will probably switch the donations to one of these organizations. If you know of other military support organizations, please share them with me here, and I will add them to the list.
If you would like to help spread the word, please share a link to this post or the link to the bracelet listing via Twitter, Facebook or your own blog. Thank you for your support!
