Thank you to all who have shared your stories this month as part of #GivingInJuly. Seeing how you are giving back in your own communities through helping to Remember, Honor and Teach is truly what made my family want to start Wreaths Across America to begin with.

Daily, I am reminded of the impact this mission has on so many people, Americans coming together from all backgrounds to remember a stranger’s loved one. From a Gold Star mom finding peace in knowing someone came to visit her child and said their name, to seeing a Veteran brought to tears as we welcome them home 50 years later. The wreath is the catalyst to help us do this. It bring communities together and helps people put aside their differences for a brief time to focus on all that is good.

I will forever be grateful to play a small part in this incredibly humbling journey that is Wreaths Across America, and look forward to hearing your stories and bringing more people together in this great country.

Remember-Honor-Teach
With gratitude,
Karen Worcester
