BENEFITING: ADVENTURES WITH DAD INC
Our newest program raises money and purchases airline tickets to allow some deserving soldiers the opportunity to spend the Holidays with their children. We help our country's military members: the Airmen, the Marines, the Soldiers, the Sailors and the Coast Guardsmen because we understand they would rather be with their families than any other place in the world, especially during the holidays. We also understand the important role that fathers play in the lives of their children. These visits home help to strengthen fathers' relationships with their children and provide a positive impact on their children's lives.
A soldier on their two weeks of "R&R" leave from Iraq or Afghanistan, has his airfare paid for by the government. But if the same soldier wishes to visit home before or after his deployment, he has to pay for that himself. The same goes for any military member who is not on R&R from combat. Thus the Airman stationed at Hanscom AFB, the Sailor onboard the USS Peleliu in San Diego, the Marine aboard the USS Essex in Okinawa, or the Soldier stationed at Spangdahlem, Germany is forced to pay for their own airfare home. It is these soldiers that we are trying to help.
The funding for our ticket drive relies 100% on donations from the public. We search through various sources to find the cheapest airfare for the given dates a military personnel can travel, and as soon as we've got the donations we buy them the ticket. Just like you, we shop around and compare prices, trying to balance the need of the individual person's schedule with the costs of compatible airfares.
