Dallis is Love has helped so many service people around the world that I would not try to estimate. This is a family run non-profit and no one takes a salary; in fact many times the expenses is paid out of their own pockets when the donations are slow coming in.

What a wonderful outreach to the troops!!! If anyone out there deserves our support, it's the men and women in the military! They are away from their families while we are snuggling up with ours. And they don't have to be. It's a sacrifice they make willingly. Dallas Is Love is doing such an amazing thing, sending thoughtful gifts and necessary support for the people who are fighting for the very freedom we have in this great country! I would love to see this organization get more exposure because it is a shining example for the rest of us to follow!

To provide support to our troops abroad is a noble and patriotic calling. Tania and Patrick Foster, with the 100% support of their father and mother, have donated gift cards and other desired items to our troops. I applaud their efforts and hope their spirit of giving and caring continues long into their adulthood.

To help people is an honor of service! It's a privilege that is not to be taken lightly and it takes very special people to be anointed with such a gift. Dallas Is Love is an organization that truly completes the requirements and traits necessary to function in this capacity!

These days when so many people are focused on many problems society thrusts upon us, it is a great relief to realize that we are here because of the bravery of our soldiers. Alot of the times we seem to forget about our soldiers who are working very hard in order for us to obtain our freedom. And Dallas is Love does a fantastic job of supporting this and letting us remember this. I am very pleased to know that there are people with big hearts, giving and caring for our soldiers. Big thanks for you guys for all that you do!!

Thank you for the opportunity to comment and share the good news with the community about this wonderful organization! My military units have benefitted greatly by Dallas is Love and their loving workers since 2007.

They have well supported our Christmas parties, brought encouragement to hard working Soldiers, and sent amazing care packages with gift cards and gifts to our deployed Soldiers here in Afghanistan, and rallied community key personalities to share in the support and encouragement movement!

The love that they share with others is inspiring, motivating and a model for others. Thank you for this opportunity!

I have personal experience with Dallas is Love. While I was stationed in Germany with the Air Force, Dallas is Love was there to make large monitary donations to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany and Walter Reed Medical Center for use in the Wounder Warrior unit.

They donated $500 of AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service) gift certificates as well as AT&T calling cards to an MP company in Stuttgart Germany that had just returned from a tour in Afganastan. The MPs used the gift cards to purchase an Xbox for their barracks day room. They were very grateful for the donations.

Dallas is Love was created by a couple of High School students, Tania and Patrick Foster. I’ve known the Foster family since 1996, and know that their hearts are sincerely into supporting the troops. While this is primarily Tania and Patrick’s charity, the entire family is 100% involved in its success. Not only have they donated AAFES gift cards but also AT&T calling cards, autographed sports memorabilia to the troops. They also receive other donations of goods and services from various businesses and organizations that can be donated to the troops.

My experience with Dallas is Love is from the outside looking in. I have seen the Foster family work the with every ounce of energy to raise money to send AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service) gift certificates to United States military troops stationed worldwide. Dallas is Love was created by Tania and Patrick Foster in 2005 in order to show soldiers that they are not forgotten for their selfless efforts to protect the freedom of this country. They were only children then, but they saw first hand on a trip to Korea that the men and women of the United States military are willing to sacrifice everything to serve our country in many remote outposts so we may enjoy the freedom that we are blessed with. They have proven that a good idea with a purpose is better that 10 ideas with none. I have seen first hand that Dallas is Love’s goal is to ensure that those who preserve the freedoms we hold dear are not forgotten by those who benefit from their hard work and dedication. It is amazing to see that Dallas is Love is raising funds to show appreciation to all who serve or have served our country. Have a heart; be a part of Dallas is Love.

I am a member of the US Army, and to do the job that we do is very demanding. I is real joy to see a friendly face stopping by to say hello, it is alsways surprising to be welcomed with a gift from Mrs. Foster and her team at Dallas is Love. They repesent the Dallas community and share the love of the Dallas area with not just the Army fimaly but the military Family as a whole.

Dallas Is Love is an organization that emodies the Army's core values. They have tirelessly, and far too often thanklessly provide support for our troops that has gone unrecognized for far too long. So from this soldier I can truly attest that "DALLAS IS LOVE"

DALLAS IS LOVE is a outstanding family organization truly ran with love. It gave me my first oppurtunity to get involved in volunter work. As a soldier, to witness this organization give back to the men and women who serve our nation was heart warming. I'm proud to know and have worked with the founding members of this organization. Your sons and daughters serving in various countries in support of Operation New Dawn or that local military recruiter appreciate the hard work and effort of this organization. Their is nothing more unselfish than selfless service DALLAS IS LOVE epitomises that.

This charity is 100% committed to helping the military community. From the moment it was formed, the founders have passionately and creatively found ways to give back to service members. It’s been amazing to watch this charity grow in business….and spirit.
