"My father used to say, “You can spend a lot of time making money. The tough time comes when you have to give it away properly.” How to give something back, that’s the tough part in life" Lee IacoccaThese are a few of the charitable organizations dedicated to our heroes and their families. Contact them if you need their help! If you have funds, a skill, time or energy, "knowing how to give something back" won't be such a tough part of life!
Please visit their website to inquire about you you can play a role in the good they are disbursing.
The Hug-A-Hero doll is no ordinary doll. The Hug-A-Hero doll’s design features the head-to-toe photograph of the recipient’s parent or loved one and a personalized message just for them. The doll not only provides comfort in the times of distress or sadness that separation can cause, but also provides a vehicle for the child to share his/her feeling and tell his/her story about his/her hero’s service. We are inspired by the many families that have shared their stories about how the Hug-A-Hero doll has made a difference in their lives. We fondly call the children in our program our “Littlest Heroes.”
