Getting pumped up for Volunteering and “Give the Gift of Good”
$500 Gift Card – Got Your Attention? Read more…Volunteer; it is good for you! Veterans Day was a special day for veterans and their families! The outpouring of support from businesses, friends and family was impressive. MilitaryAvenue was invited to a very special event in Atlanta by the Home Depot Foundation. The Quest 35 project was exhilarating and left participants with a few sore smile muscles (maybe a back or two as well). The project is now a better living space for low income families and a future home for homeless veterans.
#GiveGood Bloggers in Atlanta at Quest 35
The HD Foundation end their “Celebration of Service” veterans’ projects ended on Friday with an awesome 320 projects between 9/11/11 and 11/11/11. Wow, their goal had been 200 and the enthusiasm I saw at three of them just made me proud to be an American. But their efforts do not end here; no, they continue their outreach for homeless veterans and are on track to spend their $30 Million in 3 years on veteran projects. Did you catch the number? $30 Million.
So when they invited us to participate with 8 other bloggers from the military and DIY (due it yourself) communities, we jumped on telling their story in Atlanta and then they surprised us with a gift for you! As part of “Give the Gift of Good”, MilitaryAvenue received a $500 gift card to give to a military family for Christmas and other needs! But there is more … much more… Can you guess how much they want to give you for a home improvement project?
Maybe not; but lets just say, it is a wonderful gift to a military family in need of repairs or new updates! $$$$$ Still interested? Do you receive our MilitaryAvenue family newsletter? The newsletter will be published tomorrow with details of “Give the Gift of Good”!
