✅Small request  :  please email or write back at least a few times ( IF POSSIBLE ) so your dedicated registered and screened volunteers know you are alive and everything is okay ….our volunteers work hard. Sometimes your sponsors are kids and teachers who are beyond excited to spoil you and want to know you are okay . They are learning that giving thanks for their freedom matters.






We consider it a privilege to adopt you if you are deployed even a short while or while healing in a hospital or at home. Let us thank you for our freedoms and your sacrifices . Sign up a buddy who is not getting support or mail. We have some of the best volunteers in the world who leave the politics at the door, are officially registered, screened and follow OPSEC/confidentiality at all times . If you are a chaplain – you deserve support too .

All we need from you is to come home safe…Until you do, let us send you a little stress relief as you fight terrorism, help in world humanitarian missions, and keep us safe and free. 


We Mmmm

Attention Commanders and Chaplains, 

We take lists if that is all the time you have and we will get everyone supported. Excel spreadsheets are fine . We have received awards for our diversity, inclusion and respect for all (not just some) of our military who serve . We understand what it means to support all of you without conditions. We follow OPSEC and you will never find any service member info or addresses posted on our website or on any social media. We screen all our volunteers and monitor adoptions. Our volunteers are dedicated and offer serious support. All our volunteers agree to complete confidentiality and follow OPSEC at all times understanding that sharing info could endanger our country,our heroes and their families .

Thank you for allowing us to do our part.

In peace and gratitude, Shalom.
