Made4Heroes Supports Wreaths Across America

Each December Wreaths Across America carries out their annual mission to Remember, Honor and Teach. They do this by laying wreaths on veterans graves all over the United States at more than 1,1,00 locations. They call this day, National Wreaths Across America Day. (December 17th, 2016)

Made4Heroes presents a handmade shadow box to Wayne Hanson, Chairman of Wreaths Across America.

This great charity started as a grass-roots effort to remember those willing to serve and sacrifice. Wreaths Across America is committed to teaching younger generations about the value of their freedoms and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed so much to protect those freedoms. The Wreaths Across America convoy stops at many schools along the way. We offer learning tools, interactive media projects and opportunities for schools, 4-H, scouts and other youth groups to participate.

When you donate to Wreaths Across America, your donation helps a wreath to be placed on a military veterans’ grave. Eighty six cents of every dollar donated goes toward wreath sponsorships, shipping costs not covered by trucking partners, and fundraising group paybacks. WAA operates on the remaining margin, keeping overhead low and paying wages to just eight full-time employees. The Executive Director and Chairman takes zero salary and are 100% committed to the mission.

All throughout the year, Wreaths Across America works in a number of ways to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget—we will never forget. Read on to see the many ways we Remember and Honor our veterans, and Teach the next generation to do the same.

We are proud to support a charity this holiday season by honoring them with a custom handmade shadow box that will be displayed in the Arlington National Cemetery Museum. Learn how you can sponsor a wreath at a cemetery near you.
