Wreaths Across America Is Short 25,000 Wreaths For Arlington Cemetery

December 16th is Wreaths Across America Day... and as of today Wreaths Across America are still some 25,000 wreaths short to ensure that a Christmas remembrance wreath is placed at each veteran's gravesite in Arlington National Cemetery and at over 1,200 other military gravesites around the country, at sea and abroad. Each year, the organization lays hundreds of thousands of wreaths at military gravesites. You contribute $15 towards a wreath for our fallen soldiers laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery until December 16th. Please consider making a donation to honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.

 

For those who haven't heard about this wonderful organization, which began in 25 years ago with a trailer load of wreaths, decorated by volunteers and laid at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery, its mission is to:

 

REMEMBER the fallen; 
HONOR those who serve; 
TEACH our children the value of freedom.

 

Learn more about the Wreaths Across America organization here.

 

 

Please help by sponsoring a wreath. It's only $15 to honor a fallen hero. Click on the picture below to send your contribution to sponsor a wreath. You can sponsor a wreath for Arlington Cemetary or for a local cemetary.

We are not here to "decorate graves. We're here to remember not their deaths, but their lives....

Nina, I'm really glad you blogged about the shortage. I saw an article about it yesterday and donated a couple more. Such a small amount of money that will mean so much. Sure hope the shortage is overcome. Kudos to you for spreading the word.

Bob Crane ~ hi Bob... such a lovely cause. Each year about a week prior to the day, they are always short of contributions and then somehow at the last minute it always seems to come together... hope it will this year, as well... and I'm doing my little part to make it happen.

Jeff Dowler ~ good morning, Jeff. Each year about one week before the Wreaths Across America Day, they always seem to be a bit short... I like to think that my annual call to action helps bring them over the top.
