They do a wonderful job a filling a void that others cannot offer. It is really AWESOME seeing them put smiles on kids faces!
My name is Nadine my husband and I volenteer for Hunt of a Lifetime in ID. This last year Dec. 2015 we got a rush request for a young man and his family to be able to go on a hunt. The young man has a life threatening disease also, but what was so much worse, the dad had brain cancer and only had about 3 weeks to live and was fadding fast. We sent the rifle out to this family and they drove to a near by state and went hunting while dad was still able to go. That really put Christmas back into prospective for me. It is not the giving of big toys and lots of gifts. It is the gift of life that means so much. This a gift that will live for a lifetime for this young boy and the rest of his family. This made me think how luck I am to have my kids and grandkids close so I can hug them and tell them how much I love them. My husband and I are very grateful to be a part of such a wonderful organization, we are retired and this is a way for us to give back to people in need.
Hunt of a Lifetime is an absolutely wonderful organization. They have helped so many dreams come true for so many children. These children did not ask to have the health problems that they have but they are forced to live with it every day. It is nice to know there is an organization out there that takes away their worries for a little while and helps them fulfill their dreams!
My son Jason is a former recipient of a hunt from Hunt of a Lifetime. The people we worked with were awesome. After the hunt both my son and I started working fund raising events and expo's for Hunt of a Lifetime and when time allows we still do. Tina is a wonderful lady. She is quite busy with her day to day life but she knows most if not all the youth her organization send out. I am quite please we had the opportunities with Hunt of a lifetime.
My son had a Heart Transplant and that qualified him for a hunting trip.He chose to go to New Zealand.Hunt of a lifetime goes to the extreme to give the kids their dream hunting or fishing trips.We are very blessed to have been apart of HOAL.
Last year was my first year of being a volunteer for hoal. I was not sure exactly what to expect. What I found out was this organization is a true blessing for the child and the family. It was an amazing experience and can't wait for this year's trip! God is good!
As a volunteer coordinator for Hunt Of a Lifetime for over 10 years. I have been able to witness the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. I have seen trophy antlers go up on several walls and witnessed a son win the race to Jesus. No other organization I know of puts the kids at the TOP more than HOAL. I am forever blessed because of the time I've given to this organization.
