Review for Freedom Alliance, Dulles, VA, USA
Our first real interaction with Freedom Alliance was a phone call from a lovely woman congratulating us for being chosen for the Presents for Patriots program. She told me how cute our children were and we chatted for a bit--I was connecting with a real human who had an interest in our lives and needs! Then we were able to choose specific Christmas gifts for our kids (even more than we ever expected!). We were also added to a Facebook group where we were able to connect with other wounded veteran families (which is SO important and beneficial), played fun games leading up to Christmas, and had the opportunity to win prizes. Freedom Alliance sent us a Christmas ornament and handwritten cards from grateful citizens all across our nation. The notes is the cards were absolutely touching. After Christmas, we submitted photos for a contest with AMAZING prizes. Providing gifts for families in need at Christmastime is enough of a gift...but to continue to give tangible gifts leading up to and after Christmas was even more exciting...and just as precious is the gift of recognition and appreciation. Plus, we are now connected with a whole group of people who know exactly where we've been and what we deal with and that will truly be the gift that keeps on giving. I've never heard of Freedom Alliance before, but I will be sure to share about them with others now!
