Soldiers Angels. The name says it all. A group of warm, funny, artistic individuals who enjoy giving back, bringing friendship and comfort to as many soldiers as possible. I joined this group about 7 months ago. I can honestly state I have never found so much simple joy in my heart, my mind as writing to soldiers I've never met, never heard of, but knowing they are far from home, family, friends, their own personal lives, for me, for America, is the most incredible and awe inspiring gift to all of us. I currently have 7 seven soldiers I write to all the time, and I know the letters hopefully bring a smile, a tiny piece of comfort and laughter to all of these soldiers. I have an e-pal I write to every week, I have a DAT I write every week and send care packages to, and I am thrilled to be working with a family out of Texas, whose husband/father is on his 3rd deployment for Adopt A Family for Christmas. With the exception of two more gifts I have quite happily completed my shopping - now for wrapping/shipping. I received my first letter back two weeks ago and was over the moon! This solder told me I am now 'my friend forever'. Wow. He most assuredly is one for me as well.
Soldiers Angels. Yes - we are indeed. Bringing light into a world we know nothing about and sharing our joy, compassion and families with. Love. That is what Soldiers Angels is all about. Love.
I've been an angel for just over a month, and I can truly say, this is a wonderful organization. I've been searching for so long for a way to help our troops both overseas and back home, but worried about just sending my money to an organization and not knowing where my money would actually be going. I can do as much or as little as I want with my OWN money here. I have chosen to mail letters and care packages as I want to, so I know what it costs and exactly who is getting it because the soldiers or families of soldiers have to sign up and provide necessary info before being considered for the program. It's truly rewarding. I absolutely love my epals, and I just mailed out my first 2 overseas letters today!
I began volunteering this summer with Soldiers Angels as a letter writer. I discovered the organization from a Facebook post on Humans on the Homefront and thought it would be a great way for me to give back in my spare time as I was job searching. I have really enjoyed writing letters to our men and women overseas and I know that I'm making a difference.
This is a fantastic organization to volunteer for! There are so many ways you can give your time, whether it is helping out at a mobile food pantry, crocheting a blanket, or filling care packages. Everyone here is terrific!
Soldiers' Angels is a wonderful organization providing such a great service to thank our service members for protecting our freedom. I am on their Letter Writing Team and its great to thank our military by writing to them to let them know they do so much for us. This is an easy task & important to communicate. They need our support as we need theirs
I love being a Soldiers' Angel. I am on several teams, one of which is the Sewing & Craft Team. This lets me be creative and give back to our military at the same time. I have made blankets for our depoloyed service members as well as many of our veterans in hospitals. I have tried different organizations in the past, but Soldiers' Angels is the best! Our team leaders and other volunteers are so great!
I love Soldiers' Angels.....It is so gratifing to know that we are making a difference in the lives of the men & women who defend our country. We also support our veterans and the families of deployed soldiers. There are many teams to be a part of with awesome team leaders.
Volunteering with Soldier's Angels is possibly one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in my life. The opportunity to interact on a one on one basis with our military is far more rewarding than just throwing money at an organization. And when I receive a reply from one of our military that I have written to, I makes my heart beat faster to know that I have given a little joy to someone who has given so much for all of us! ! This is the best group I have ever come across in all my 67 years!! TY, SOLDIER'S ANGELS, for allowing me the experience of a lifetime!!
I have supported and/or volunteered with several organizations supporting our military over a 20 year span. Soldiers' Angels is truly outstanding, offering a range of services to military and veteran's families and just as many service opportunities to the Angel volunteers. From the perspective of both a military wife and an Angel volunteer, I can honestly say that Soldiers' Angels is a blessing to military families, veterans, and volunteers alike!
I joined Soldiers' Angels in memory of my son who died in 2009 at the age of 12. He was a huge supporter of our troops despite not growing up in a military family. When looking for an organization to devote time to, there were many, SA stood out above all others because of their vast opportunities and sense of community. The system is easy to use and there is always someone willing to answer a question if something comes up. The closed Facebook groups are a great resource as well. I have been fortunate to receive many replies from service members and they show so much appreciation for all the volunteers.
I'm forever grateful that I found Soldiers' Angels in 2007. I'm on 3 teams and it gives me a chance to do something for our active duty men and women and veterans, which means I'm doing something for my country. I'm from a military family that goes back to the American Revolution and that means the world to me.
