2.  Pay a Good Deed Forward (PAGDF) Tokens:
  Do a good deed, an act of kindness, in honor of the fallen veteran and pass the token along; or pass it backward to someone who's done something nice for you.  As good deeds are passed from person to person in honor of their veteran, they are saying their veteran's name, telling their veteran's story and keeping their veteran's name and spirit alive.

Our website is set up so anyone receiving or paying forward their veteran's token can tell how they paid forward their token or received their token ...or how someone did a good deed forward to them.  Each token will have a journey as it is paid forward and the veterans name and story is shared between the giver and receiver of the token.  Click here to read about our PAGDF token programs.

There are approximately 2,200 PAGDF tokens circulating for our fallen veterans.  Thank you to all who donated and circulated these precious recognitions of their sacrifice, courage, and honor to serve you and our country!

It will be our 10th year of attending Memorial Day events in Washington, DC.  What an honor and privilege to be able to share Ross' and the other fallen veteran's stories to keep their legacy alive.

Each year brings a different crowd with a different tone or message, but the people who took the time to come to our nation's capital share similar feelings.  They share love for our country, unending support for those who serve in the military, police, and other first responders, and a desire to help others.

Through events like this, special fund raising events, and direct donations we are accomplishing our mission.  We started 3 scholarships in the names of 3 fallen veterans and are in the process of starting 2 additional scholarships over the next 12 months.

Thanks to people like you, we raised over $15,000 for Ross' scholarship.  Interest earned on the money provides at least a $500.00 award to a combat veteran returning to school.  The veteran can use the money toward expenses they have in order to attend school.  It could be for babysitting, gas, school supplies, breakfast, lunch, dinner, or something else that they decide.  This award is designed to go directly to the veteran so you are helping them directly.  We have awarded this scholarship each year since 2013.

Listed above is information about Jeremy's, Clint's, Nathan's, and Juan's scholarships.  After we raise $15,000 for each of these scholarships, we will select other fallen veterans to start one in their name.  Overall, these scholarships continue the legacy of the fallen veteran, helps a veteran returning from combat, and very importantly confirms to the family of the fallen veteran that their loved one is not forgotten.

I feel blessed to come to Washington, DC each year, spread the stories about our fallen veterans, meet exceptional people, and walk away with a heart so filled it compels me to continue finding ways to help our veterans and their families.

Help us!  Pay it forward!  Donate now, so we can start new scholarships for other fallen veterans.

You have to reach for the stars to get to the tops of the trees!  The view is awesome!
