We need your help to win the Crowdrise Holiday Challenge! Brides Across America has the chance to win $100,000, if we receive the most donations out of 467 charities from November 18th to January 9th. Please donate to support our military brides to be. It's a way to pay it forward to those who give so much for our country.
WHY SUPPORT OUR MILITARY COUPLES?
All brides dream of their “fairy tale” wedding day, however, their planning becomes secondary to the realities of deployment, injury and/or financial hardship. Brides Across America’s unique mission is to turn those dreams into reality by providing free wedding gowns to our deserving military brides. Your donation will enable us to help a military bride with a wedding gown, tiara, veil, and accessories.
A STORY FROM A BAA BRIDE!
"Having a fiancé in the military can be difficult but also being in the military myself can complicate things. I got home from Afghanistan a year ago and have been suffering with PTSD and depression. I was not able to work when I first came back. I also had a serious infection from Afghanistan that required hospitalization. It's been a rocky road but my fiancé has stood by me. He is often overseas and it can make things hard but it is worth it. He has done everything to support me. With him being in the military too he can understand what I am going through and he is very patient with me. When I heard about brides across America I was beyond excited! My finances have been tight since I have been unable to work and am in the process of my disability claim with the military. The dress I picked was the first one I tried on! My family came with me and we all started crying. It turned out to be a $4500 dress! I would have never been able to afford that dress and it is truly my dream dress. I could have never gotten that dress without Brides Across America and I am so grateful."

A CHRISTMAS DEPLOYMENT?
Holidays are filled with fun, gifts and goodies, but, not for everyone. As we honor and serve, BAA will be acting fast to help out another military couple who is getting married on Dec. 21st. The fiance is in the army and is deploying on Christmas Day! Due to the short notice of his deployment and only weeks to plan, Brides Across America wants to lessen the burden by providing the gown, veil, tiara and jewelry. Help Brides Across America honor this military couple and many more for their services, along with raise as many donations as possible for the Holiday Challenge!
A donation is a small price to pay to those who give so much for our country. With the Holiday Challenge, we are trying to raise $100,000 to be able to continue fulfilling dreams.
