From one of our wonderful supporters for the Christmas Wish program this year:
Loretta loves to support our Christmas Wish program each year by adopting a wounded warrior family. This year she broke her ankle and not only can she not be mobile but will have to have surgery. That did not stop her from wanting to help. Loretta sent this email:
I made a donation of $$. If you will shop for my chosen family, I usually like to include a meal & stockings that are age appropriate. Thanks so much for doing this for me!
I am so grateful that I can still participate, it would have broken my heart. This is so close to my heart. , I am blessed to pay it forward to these families of my heart! ♥️♥
Thank you Loretta and to all of you who choose to bless these courageous families!
Heartbeat Serving Wounded Warriors® offers Christmas Wish℠, the popular morale-building program. Christmas is a difficult time for many wounded warriors. You can help by “adopting” them.
While the world is celebrating holidays, our heroic, wounded warriors and their families face financial, physical, and psychological challenges most civilians never experience. It’s a lonely time. As an organization or individual, you can “adopt” by purchasing gifts or donating funds for gifts.
Donors often report the privilege they feel when sharing their gratitude for those who sacrifice daily for them. It’s a memorable experience for everyone.
John, one Christmas Wish℠ donor, said, “This great man, a soldier who just did three tours, filled with emotion when we gave our gifts to him and his family. But my family received the biggest gift just by helping them.”
The wounded warrior or family member provides a wish list to make it easier for you.
