There are a lot of great organizations out there that support our military-families in times of need; from deployment-support (Armed Services YMCA), to a new baby for young parents (Operation Homefront); from wounded warrior transitions (Wounded Warrior Project), to dealing with the unexpected loss of a military-member (TAPS). These organizations (and so many more) help families cope with major change: some expected, some very unexpected.
A big Kudos to our MilitaryAvenue Partner, Stephanie McGee, a Realtor with Keller Williams Preferred Realty. She is going out of her way to raise money for Homes for Our Troops an organization that supports wounded-warriors.
First, she alerted us to this great organization so that we could tell military families about it:

It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause by making your tax-deductible donation online using the link below. If you would prefer, you can send your contribution to the address listed below. Whatever you can give will help – it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
To make a donation online, visit my personal page.
What are you doing for our Heroes? Get involved! It not only looks great on the ‘resume’ but it shows TRUE support for the military family! A military family can sniff out a marketing-ploy when they see one. Don’t fall victim to ‘cheap marketing’. Put your heart into it! Think about what these families /need/ and then go about getting it done!
Contribute to Stephanie’s cause by click on her personal-fundraising page above, or start your own fundraiser for an accredited military-organization. THEN let us know about it! We love to let military-families know about organizations that support them.
