Review for Blue Star Families, Falls Church, VA, USA
I choose to give my time and energy to Blue Star Families because I am continually blown away by the dedication, passion and integrity of the volunteers and the paid staffers. I have never been exposed to any charitable organization more committed to improving people's lives or to doing the absolute most with every dollar they receive. There is literally no limit on what can be accomplished by authentic, hard-working people who believe whole-heartedly in their mission — that's why in a few short years Blue Star Families has become the go-to military support group. I have worked with the Books on Bases program, Operation Appreciation/Honor Cards, the PSAs and helped in other BSF endeavors, as well and have yet to have an experience that I would describe as anything less than glowing.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...seeing lives changed. Military families are often not recognized for our service and our sacrifices often go unnoticed by the greater public. Therefore, our needs also often go unmet. Blue Star Families has become the loudest voice in America for Military families and, because of that, our needs, sacrifices and successes are now being heralded by the White House and others. This has led to a direct improvement in the lives of EVERY military family in the United States.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...encourage more people to volunteer and give money. BSF could do even more with more resources. But there is not one thing I would change about the organization itself.
