Before you make your purchases (whether it be for something personal, or for filling those care packages to your adopted Hero), you might check out this list of vendors that support the troops and Soldiers’ Angels through your purchases (either because you follow the link, or you tell them you are part of Soldiers’ Angels) by donating a portion of the sales to Soldiers’ Angels, or offering discounts to Soldiers’ Angels shoppers. There’s all kinds of things to choose from: cooling gear (the weather’s changing over there!), coffees (multiple vendors), flowers, jewelry, books, clothes, food, the list goes on! So, if you’re shopping anyway, maybe help Soldiers’ Angels out while you’re at it!

National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week

Angels Vern, Erin, Jill, Debbie, Melissa, Charlotte, and families had the honor of visiting with Veterans at the Puget Sound VA (seattle)  for the National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans festivities!  Thank you angels.

“The 30 bears we handed out were a huge success.”  (these are our Grratitude bears you can make too-ask us about them!)

“leaving them was probably one of the hardest things I done in a while……One guy I talked to gave me a big hug and was asking me to come back and visit again…..What will it take to be able to go and visit them again soon?
This was a great weekend. ”

I was told by one of the ladies that I had an angelic smile 🙂 And then again by one of the patients that I had helped with opening up his gum. He had said I had such a smile that no wonder I was an angel. Sure made my day. He has been in my mind since then.”

“And the vets? Oh my! Everyone was so gracious and thankful. It was so good I have decided to begin my weekly visits… I was humbled and thankful.”

Showing the love, respect and gratitude! Thanks angels and THANK YOU VETERANS!!

Thanks also to our Angel Crew for providing a Valentine’s visit to our American Lake Veterans. If you’d like to visit at a VA nearest you with Soldiers’ Angels email soldiersangelswashington @gmail.com or contact your local VA voluntary Services.

Soldiers’ Angels in Washington set up shop at Walmart!

What a privilege to belong to an amazing organization with  such a huge outreach of support around the world for our Armed Services, Wounded, Veterans and families  AND be able to share about it with our communities!   One of the lovely people we met yesterday, saw the Oprah show I posted about here and was motivated to find out where she could go to volunteer in her own community.   I’m always incredibly inspired  by the creativity of people and the unique ideas that shine through conversations about support efforts.  It’s a fun day of brainstorming and planning with angels that are volunteering and the people we are lucky enough to interact with throughout the day.  Thank you everyone who stopped by our table.   Thank you Debbie & Parents for all of your work to make this opportunity take shape and angel Jean for stopping by- so much to share and discuss!
I can’t wait to get started helping to make those wonderful ideas happen!  We’re looking forward to talking with all of the people who signed up yesterday and working ‘wingtip to wingtip’ to make sure those who serve and have sacrificed for all of us know we are grateful!

Thanks from Afghanistan

Thanks from Afghanistan

Soldiers’ Angels recently received this note from a Staff Sergeant on a PRT (Provincial Reconstruction Team) in Afghanistan.

Dear Soldiers’ Angels,

Thank you all very much for the package, especially the movies and MOOSE MUNCH (which was gone in less than a minute).

There are some times we get sad over here and think that people in the States don’t really care about us, so when we get something like this it really boosts our morale. So this package, it really means a lot. On behalf of PRT Panjshir, we’d like to say thank you and God bless.

Attached is a picture of us for the greatest organization ever–Soldiers’ Angels. You guys are the BEST! Thank you.

–SSgt R., US Air Force

PRTs are military teams that work with local government officials, U.S. government civilians and local military/police personnel to assist people in rebuilding or improving their neighborhoods. They spend a great deal of time away from the main bases and out in the countryside among the locals. This PRT, which is very isolated, received a large package from Soldiers’ Angels while waiting to be adopted by individual Angel volunteers.

As of this writing, there are 1106 Heroes waiting to be adopted. You can help.

Here’s another great opportunity to support the troops with just the click of a mouse!

Soldiers’ Angels Georgia is in the running for $1000 to help with their massive annual Christmas Stocking project for National Guardsmen deployed from their state, but they need your help!  You can help SA Georgia win the DollarDays.com Community Pride photo contest, simply by voting for them with a click of your mouse.  Currently, SA Georgia is in 4th place, but the 1st place project has twice as many votes!
The Dollar Days contest challenges nonprofit customers to use a photo to show how they use Dollar Days purchases in their charity work.  SA Georgia’s photo shows a happy soldier who has received a care package from Georgia Angels, one of the average of 5,000 they send every year.
Supporters can vote once per email address, per day, and the deadline is December 31, 2010.  Please share this link with your friends and families, add to your Facebook page or any forums in which you participate.
