I am in the process of creating a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that will benefit families in Iowa. The primary goal is to assist family members (specifically children) of fallen service members. We would also like to support other veterans issues.

The first fundraiser is being held on August 22 at Copper Creek Lake Park in Pleasant Hill called the "Remembrance Run - Honoring Iowa's Fallen."

LAN posted the following comment on 8/17/2010 11:33:37 AM I'm President of The Crafting for Charity Club and we are also seeking funding through Dream Big, Grow Here. I wanted to contact you and see if your group would like to help with our project for the 103rd National Guard Unit. We will be making Teddy Bears and Dolls for approximately 350 children of deployed soldiers. We will also be working with about 100 children of soldiers at their holiday party to make cards and scrapbooks to be send to deployed soldiers. You group might also be interested in helping with some of our other projects as well. Go to our website and you will find information about our past and present projects. I hope we can help each other! You can contact me directly at [email protected]

Bob posted the following comment on 8/2/2010 8:23:27 PM I will vote for this. A military veteran, 23 years, never had to be in combat, shot at, or, shot at the enemy. I had a year in Saudi Arabia, away from family. My worst experience. Gotta luv those guys. Bob
