Giving Day - March 10 10% of Sales will go to Womens Center of Danbury

Dear Customers,

Another successful GIVING DAY - Thank you!

With your help we have been able to support three different causes in the last three months - each one of them receiving 10% of our sales on GIVING DAY.

Growing up as an army child, I have seen the struggle families go through when their loved ones go to war zones or go on missions. And god forbid if they come back home injured or disabled, it impacts the lives of not just the soldier but the whole family. We owe a lot to our brave soldiers and so this month we decided to pick an organization that provides aide and comfort to our soldiers, their families and our veterans.

Soldier’s Angels was started by mother of a soldier deployed in Iraq. In the beginning they sent care packages, hand sewn blankets, letters and cards to our soldiers and now they have multiple programs with about 100000 volunteers. Over the years they have donated $103 million to our soldiers, their families and veterans. They maintain an efficiency rating of 97% and have a four star rating on Charity Navigator.

So join us in supporting Soldier’s Angels. Shop more on JUNE 9, so we can give more to Soldier’s Angels - May No Soldier Go Unloved.

Thank you for being our partner and believing in us.

Help us spread the word

Please help us get the word out. Together we can give the ‘Soldiers’ Angels’ the support it needs to provide aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families and a growing veteran population. It was created as an opportunity to provide support with care packages, hand-sewn blankets, letters, cards, and other items from ‘home’. Let us support Soldiers’ Angels philosophy of ‘May No Soldier Go Unloved’…

Ways to share...

Soldiers’ Angels provides aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families and a growing veteran population. Soldiers’ Angels was established in 2003 by the mother of a son who was deployed to Iraq. She began sending care packages to her son and was then asked to not only send more care packages to many more deployed but to also assist with other needs. September 11th was a catalyst that inspired Americans to support the military and help out any way they could. Soldiers’ Angels was created as an opportunity for them to provide that support with care packages, hand-sewn blankets, letters, cards, and other items from ‘home’. In just 14 years, since this small beginning of sending care packages, Soldiers’ Angels has grown to over 12 Programs with over 100,000 volunteers nationwide.
Most of the programs and services offered by Soldiers’ Angels are performed by volunteers who work tirelessly supporting our nation’s veterans, wounded warriors, deployed service members and their families. With the assistance of our supporters, the many volunteers of Soldiers’ Angels have accomplished this and more on behalf of the grateful citizens of the USA. ‘May No Soldier Go Unloved’ encapsulates the motivation behind Soldiers’ Angels to ensure that our brave men and women in uniform and our veterans receive the support and honor they deserve.
Soldiers’ Angels offers ‘boots on the ground’ and ‘virtual’ programs and services. This allows the organization to best serve our military families and veterans while also ensuring we fully utilize the resources of our dedicated volunteers. Soldiers’ Angels operates 12 virtual teams, where volunteers from all over the country and even internationally can participate in supporting US military and US veterans. Our ‘virtual’ teams include:
• Deployed Adoptions Team
• Ladies of Liberty Team
• Angel Bakers Team
• Chaplain Support Team
• Letter Writing Team

• Operation Top Knot Team
• Women of Valor Team

On May 12th, HPFY donated 10% of the day’s sales to ‘Asha for Education’. Asha for Education took roots in 1991 when a group of students including Deepak Gupta, Sandeep Pandey, and VJP Srivatsavoy from the University of Berkeley, CA got together and discussed ways to bring about a socio-economic change in India. The group was formed with a belief that education is a requisite to bring about the much needed socio economic change in India. It was named ‘Asha’, meaning ‘hope’. Since then, Asha for Education has grown via its chapters, and today has more than 65 chapters worldwide.
Asha for Education is a 501(c)(3) organization in the US. Each year, our work touches the lives of several thousands of children across a few hundreds of projects. We have no offices, and 100% of our efforts are driven by unpaid volunteers. All donations are tax deductible, and we have earned a reputation for sending >98% of donations to our projects.
