This holiday season, JOA has chosen to contribute to an important non-profit, A Million Thanks, in 2020.
Founded in 2004, A Million Thanks started as a community service project in Orange County, California, with the goal of sending one million cards and letters to U.S. military serving around the world. Within three weeks, the project became a national cause as thousands of letters arrived from organizations and individuals.
Since then, A Million Thanks has been able to greatly expand its support, and it now provides the following services:
Letter Sending— Collecting and mailing millions of letters of thanks and support to active, reserve, and veteran military.
Wish Granting—Granting wishes to injured veterans that make their lives more enjoyable.
Scholarship Funding—Providing merit and need-based scholarships to children of fallen military.
To date, A Million Thanks has distributed more than seven million letters to U.S. troops stationed around the world. They are also currently in the process of raising funds to grant over 30 wishes for active military members as well as provide scholarships for almost 20 children of fallen veterans.
JOA is proud to support this important cause. For more information, visit their website.
