We Are So Close

UPDATE:  You are wonderful! $250 raised so far; only $50 more to meet my goal! Thank you!!!!

We are working to take some very deserving children to Washington DC this summer.

Please help us meet our deadline. The kids have worked so hard. We have $3,009 of the required $26,534  left to raise by April 25. My goal is to personally raise 10% of that, $300. I have 221 blog followers. Six of you have already given very generously so that leaves 215. If each of you gave $2, I would surpass my goal!  Now we all know that is not going to happen. So do I have 30 Siberian Cat lovers who would each give $10?

I have been helping my husband in his endeavors to give back to our country for all that was given to him in his 36 years as a United States Marine. He is shaping the lives of some very special children by serving as Unit Commander of the Fox Valley Young Marines. I am the Unit Adjutant and Chef.

Our goal is to take these children to Washington D.C. this summer, an opportunity many of them will never have again.

This organization is NOT a recruiting tool for the US Marines. The only connection is to nurture and develop the values of the Corps of loyalty, leadership and good citizenship plus promoting a drug free lifestyle.

    I just gave in honor of Tom Kitten and Tabitha Twitchit, my best buddies. Today is their birthday and they are 2 years old. Let me know if you need more $ toward the end of fund raising.
