"Our mission is to raise awareness of the high personal cost of freedom in our country and bridge the gap between Gold Star families and civilians," said Founder Lyette Reback. "To accomplish our goal, we call upon an army of volunteers who express over and over that giving back to those families who have given so much is among the most gratifying experiences of their lives."
Gold Star families are invited to visit BelieveWithMe.com to submit their children's names, ages and holiday gift wish list. They can also upload photos of their family and soldier. Volunteers, including high school and college students, neighbors, ex-military members and senior citizens, will hand-wrap each gift in white paper, gold ribbon, and an American flag.
