The holidays have passed... the company has left... the decorations are coming down... and life returns to the normal hum. Did you spend some time looking back at all you accomplished last year?
We did and here are some things we found. Last year Molly's adopt a sailor reached more than 5,000 sailors, soldiers, marines, airmen and coasties with our monthly adoptions. And many, many more thru our web site adoptions and Special Hugs project. On average over 70 boxes per month were shipped to each group and there were twenty official packing parties!
Add to those numbers the individual moms, sisters, wives, and others that pack and sent individual boxes and you can see the impact that starts with writing just one card or letter!
All it takes is love! Can we count on you to reach out this year? How about sending a note or package to a deployed military person? How about meeting once a month for lunch with friends or family and talking about our project? Or putting a box on your desk for workmates to drop notes into. Then you can pack them up in a small flat rate box and send them along to our monthly adoption. Already doing that? How about inviting someone new to your monthly get togethers?
That lonely deployed soldier, sailor, marine, coastie and airman who has no one writing them... that is the mission of Molly's Adopt a sailor... to reach out to those deployed without anyone to support them. Will you join us this year? You will be amazed at how it will change your life!
