THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

For the 40 Days of Lent this year, I am choosing to give back to military personnel and their families. Growing up, I did not know anyone in the military or who had served in the armed forces. The first person I knew to join was my best friend from middle school, Lauren, when she got accepted into the Naval Academy. I was floored and thrilled (and secretly terrified) for her! Finally, I actually knew someone serving in the armed forces. A little bit later, my other best friend from middle school, Swetha, joined the Air Force! They're both pretty amazing women. I kept telling myself to go volunteer, to go do something to help, but I just never got around to it. That changes now, with my choice to donate to Camp Hope, located in Houston, Texas.

I need your help. I've got 40 days. Would you be willing to make a small donation to Camp Hope today? There will always be a veteran in need. They deserve it. Your gift, whether it be monetary or physical, will benefit the veterans as they work through various issues as they transition into civilian life.

Camp Hope "provides interim housing for our Wounded Warriors, veterans and their families suffering from combat-related PTSD in a caring and positive environment." In addition to housing, Camp Hope offers opportunities for support groups and mentoring connections. If you would like more information on Camp Hope, visit their website: http://ptsdusa.org/camp-hope/.

If you'd like to drop off donations, please text me at 832-617-0475; I'd love to coordinate with you.

Thank you,

Lilian
