12 Days of Christmas: A Soldiers Child Foundation

Dec 23, 2015

Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation partnered with A Soldiers Child Foundation to help mutually fulfill our mission to ensure a future college education for Gold Star children who lost a parent in the line of duty. A Soldiers Child facilitates college scholarships up to $35,000 with the help of Fallen Patriots.

“Children of Fallen Patriots organization is beyond amazing,” explained Daryl Mackin, Executive Director of A Soldiers Child. “Our collaboration with Fallen Patriots provides a homerun of services that we offer together as partners in serving our American hero families.”

For those who have lost a spouse, a partner and a parent, the holidays can be a painful reminder that someone we love is not in the picture. A Soldier’s Child started a Family to Family Christmas program to give back to the families of our servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much. During the hectic Christmas season, peoples’ thoughts often wander past the children of those who serve.  Gold Star children sometimes wake up Christmas morning missing their mom or dad, and perhaps not understanding why they can’t be there.

With the help of others, hundreds of young children will have a reason to smile when they wake on Christmas day. To participate in A Soldier’s Child Family to Family Christmas, simply click here.

Make a Donation:  Donations will reach as many children as possible this Christmas. A Soldier’s Child is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. All gifts are tax deductible.

Sponsor a Family: A personal connection can be made by selecting a military family to sponsor this Christmas. A Soldier’s Childs goal is for each child in a family to receive five gifts. 

Behind all the presents, the true meaning of Christmas is to give to others. A college education is the single most important gift Fallen Patriots and A Soldiers Child can mutually give to Gold Star children.
