"Little Patriots Embraced"
State Project 2016-2017
My state project for the 2016-2017 year is called Little Patriots Embraced. We will be raising money to
help Little Patriots Embraced, an organization that provides aid to military children as their parents or loved ones are deployed
into the U.S. military. Their mission is "to enhance the lives of our Military Families in need ... while their loved one is protecting
our freedom." I chose this project because I want to help young children through the unimaginable pain of having a parent in our
military- to recognize how brave they truly are.
Little Patriots Embraced travels to military bases all over the country and present a variety of programs to military children at the bases. These programs cover fitness, anti-bullying, family stress, emotional issues, and much more. Project Bear Essentials is one of their programs that lets kids on military bases share their experiences with one another and be recognized for their service to our country. This organization has impacted a total 57,000 children in 12 years, but there are still so many children to help. I want to help Little Patriots Embraced fulfill their mission for the military children who serve our country just as much as their parents do.
Little Patriots Embraced reminds us to care about not only the soldiers fighting for our freedom, but for their families as they sacrifice their loved ones so we can live in liberation. By visiting military bases and presenting their programs, they remind the children that others believe in them and are incredibly grateful for their service to our country.
Thank you for supporting my project-Little Patriots Embraced: Loving Our Littlest Heroes.
Let's have a great year!
