My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED, Oklahoma City, OK, USA
When I was serving in the Middle East I was at my lowest. My family all died when I was younger so I had no one supporting me. When mail was called, I was the only one in my unit that knew there would be nothing for me; not everyone received things but at least they had that hope. Not me, I knew no one even cared that I was serving my country far from home. But, one day that changed. When my friend came back from picking up mail, he had a huge smile as he laid a box on the foot of my cot. I told him he’d made a mistake but he pointed to my name on the label and said, “Isn’t that you?” I couldn’t believe it but man, I cried like a baby when I realized it wasn’t a dream. Someone knew. Someone cared. It was from the Oklahoma City chapter of The Hugs Project and their letter said that they appreciated me and that they respected me for the job I was doing. Reading that, I cried even harder. You can never know how good I felt and still feel even now. I hope that someday, I can meet some of these good people so that I can throw my arms around their necks and let them know that they made a difference in the life of some lonely soldiers far from home…especially this one. Respectfully, Jessica Stanwick
