BENEFITING: Soldiers Angels

Carlo Lorenzo Garcia

THE STORY:

My name is Carlo and my mission is to give to charity every day for a year. This mission is built on a belief that you don't have to be rich in dollars to make a difference, you only need to be rich in spirit. I may not always be able to give a lot, but I will Give Everyday. I started a blog called Living Philanthropic to help me document my journey. The support I have received has been overwhelming and I am inspired by all the support. I have received some requests from readers for places to donate, so I am expanding my mission and will be picking a monthly charity to sponsor, and if you feel inclined please feel free to show them your support.

I am constantly connecting with new people that inspire me on a daily basis, this month's featured charity is in honor of Iraq War Veteran Troy Yocum, who is hiking 7,000 miles across America, banging his drum and sounding the call for $5 million to help military families in need. With Emmie the SuperDog by his side, he took the first step of his 16-month quest on April 17, 2010. Now they are on track to complete the western leg of the journey. All the way from Kentucky to California on Veterans Day. I not think of a better way to celebrate Veterans Day, than help Troy on his DrumHike and help him hit his $5million goal for Soldiers' Angels, a non-profit providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, veterans and their families.
