Celebrate July 4th by giving to those who give so much!!
I've mentioned before that I spent most of my life as a "military service member support staff" - both as a child and a spouse. That's fancy-speak for "military dependent". Just like any indentured civil servant, these brave men and women do not do this for money or fame. They don't do it because of any reason other than a bone-deep calling to do what's right. To defend our freedoms and those in countries who have none. To be there on the front line, taking the hit. To run into harms' way so that others don't have to. To leave this world a little better than they found it.
I am awed and honored by the sacrifices made by these brave individuals around the world. I don't take my freedom lightly and I am thrilled that Close To My Heart has found such a wonderful way to give back.
From June 1st to July 31st, $3 from each Courage Stamp set (B-sized, retails for $9.95) and $5 from each
Home of the Brave Stamp Set (D-sized, retails for $17.95) will be donated to the USO! The USO is an incredible organization that supports our service members. These brave men and women sacrifice so much and they deserve to know that we don't take their sacrifices for granted!
These stamp sets can be ordered here, but ONLY until July 31st!
