This past weekend as I watched my favorite news show, CBS Sunday Morning, I was especially touched by the story of Karen Grimond. Over the past eight years she has single handedly sent out 7300 care packages to our troops. Talk about someone who is making a difference! You can watch her inspiring story here.
Karen’s one woman nonprofit and personal service to our troops made me wonder how many other people or organizations exist to support military personnel, their families and veterans? I found a good listing of organizations on the Charity Navigator website here.
Before you watch the fireworks this Independence Day, take a moment to reflect on all the people who have served our country. Thank a Vet or even better make a donation to a military or veteran-related charity.
