I am so touched that this lady is doing this! I have heard it so many times from people from other countries who say we don't appreciate what we have.

Kudos to someone who has the dedication to return some of the gratitude in a tangible way. God richly bless each one who does this. My Marine grandson just came back from a tour in Afghanistan. I know.

I live in Colorado and heard of your project through my sister who lives in Germantown. I currently have a son who is deployed in Afghanistan and would very much like to get involved in your project. Do you know how I could start something similar in Colorado?
