Christmas is an amazing time of year for children. Even when children get past the age of believing, there is always hope and excitement surrounding this day.
For parents, the feelings can be very different. The shopping and searching for that perfect gift can be very stressful. As we shop, we wonder--am I buying too little or too much? Will my kids like their gifts? Will these gifts mean something to them a few months from now?
When a family is having financial difficulties, Christmas can be even more stressful. Then the parents start to wonder--how can I pay for this or how are we going to put anything under the tree?
Many of our military families are already struggling during a time of transition and uncertainty. We want to ensure that the holiday season is a celebration for the entire family, not a source of stress.
This year, Hope For The Warriors® has created the Holiday Giving Initiative. We are matching up families that need assistance with families or companies that would like to donate to make this holiday time special. We have 13 families in need that we are still trying to match with a donor.
We are running out of time! We have set a deadline of December 16 so that we can get the Visa gift cards to these families and give them enough time to purchase gifts for their children. If you would like to help, please let us know today!
To learn more, email Leslie Hunt. To donate, visit our donation page and include "Holiday Giving Initiative" in the comments.
Thank you and Merry Christmas!
