Adopt a soldier
Little Ray's of Sunshine8:18:00 AM
I am SO excited about today's Rays! Noah was itty bitty and I was up watching Extreme Home Makeover when they made this AMAZING house for this soldier who was over fighting for our country. He was away and unable to take care of his family and his family was watching their house crumble around them. At the end they talked about an organization called "Soldier's Angels". I was so touched and felt compelled to do something. So we logged on, read the commitment and signed up to become an "angel"! You would be amazed at HOW many soldiers do not receive care packages from home. Either they do not have anyone over here waiting/watching for them or their families cannot afford to. We are definitely in no perfect financial state BUT I knew we could do something.
This is something you and another family could take on together if you like. Or a book club, church community group etc.
There is also another organization out there called Adopt a Soldier that has recently had a major influx of soldiers and are currently looking for people to sign up to help out! I know for Soldier's Angel's we have a facebook forum set up. I belong to Oregon and Washington. We find out needs, gain support from one another and its been really helpful!
Have a blessed day!
