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.

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"

I have had the privilage to experience the unconditional joy Dallas Is Love bestows upon the troops here in Korea. Their true caring attitude, AAFES gift cards and the autographed sports equipment signed by pro-sports figures they showered the troops stationed in Korea with brought a lot of happiness the 2009 Christmas season. Since that time they have continued to do the same to many other Soldiers in various other parts of the world. During my limited experience, their efforts truely tower above most the larger organizations when it comes to reminding the troops they are truley appreciated for what they do, have done, and they are not forgotten.
