“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.”

    –Edmund Burke

One person can make a difference. It's not only possible for one person to make a difference, it's essential that a difference is made. The possibility and chances to financially #easetheburden during the holidays are endless. Giving back can be done through a donation, or simply just by creating awareness.

Gold Star military wives are mothers who have lost their husband in the line of duty. They face the challenge of raising their children without their spouse. The holidays are a crazy-busy time of year for all parents—but Gold Star military wives feel double the pressure. These single moms want their children to enjoy this festive time of year, but it’s challenging for them to give their children a full-scale winter wonderland all on their own.


#GivingTuesday is a time where giving to others becomes a priority. Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots) hopes donors will cap a weekend of Thanksgiving and holiday cheer by celebrating and donating to our mission.

Regardless of how small a donation, a beneficial change is being made to a Gold Star military family. Approximately 63% of those who have lost an active duty family member earn less than 50K.  By even donating $25, you will provide a backpack filled with school supplies for a Gold Star child.

With organizations like Fallen Patriots, it’s possible to ensure a future college education for Gold Star children. We ask you this holiday season, to focus on the endless possibilities on how you can financially #easetheburden for Gold Star military families.
