Nancy Brown, co-host with me of the BlogTalkRadio show www.YourMilitaryLife.com, just received an email that started like this:
My name is Roy White and I represent a non-profit called Snowball Express. We provide hope and new memories to the children of military fallen heroes.Nancy and I are planning a special www.YourMilitaryLife.com show to help bring this incredible program to the attention of the families who can benefit from the program. In the meantime, please watch the video above (I recommend having tissues at hand) and visit the Snowball Express website.
Eligible persons to attend are those families who have children of military fallen heroes who have died since 9/11 while on active duty. We bring these children and the surviving parent together with other children and spouses for an all expense paid gathering that has grown from just under 900 attendees in 2006 to over 1400 attendees in 2008.
The event has its roots in Orange County, CA and has been an all volunteer effort for the past 3 years. We have been blessed to have the support of civilian groups such as Rotarians as well as veteran support groups such as Ladies Auxiliary VFW, American Legion, Vietnam Veterans of America and corporate donors such as American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Oakley, Quiksilver, TriWest Healthcare and many others.
