Thanks USA!

While this post is not travel-related, it certainly fits with the themes covered here at Vicinoti.  ThanksUSA! is a non-profit organization started by two inspiring young women with a simple mission: provide educational scholarships to military dependents, namely spouses and children of US military servicemen and women.

Since their humble beginnings, ThanksUSA! has raised over $5M and provided scholarships for over 1,700 recipients.  And they continue to grow.

While issues regarding US military policy attract great debate, there's no debating the fact that those men and women called to serve face unique challenges when it comes to building and raising families.  ThanksUSA is helping alleviate one of the largest challenges -- the ability to afford quality education -- faced by military families,  including the citizen-soldiers of the Army and Air National Guard, in the United States.

I'm proud to be associated with this incredible group through LMO Advertising.  LMO is the pro-bono agency of record for ThanksUSA! 

You can learn more about this organization through this video press report.
