AUSTIN, Texas, June 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — U.S. Money Reserve, America's Gold Authority®, along with dedicated veteran support affiliates, is officially launching its new “Wings of Gratitude” initiative aimed at encouraging families to give back to veterans and active military members in appreciation of their service. From handwritten notes and letters to unique drawings or even a touching photograph, families will be sending their gratitude in their own unique ways while taking time to teach children about the commitment U.S. soldiers and veterans make to protect American freedoms and why Americans should honor them for their service.
“As long supporters of our nation's veterans, we wanted to develop a new initiative to give back to our nation's military heroes while creating a fun and gratifying experience for families to get involved in through a creative service project,” said Angela Roberts, CEO of U.S. Money Reserve. “Having families send positive messages reminds our active military members and veterans that we are thinking of them and they have our unwavering support.”
To bring more awareness to the “Wings of Gratitude” initiative, U.S. Money Reserve has partnered with honored Army veteran, burn survivor, actor, motivational speaker, New York Times best-selling author, and Dancing with the Stars season 13 winner, J.R. Martinez, as the campaign's Ambassador. Martinez travels the world spreading his message of resilience and optimism.
“It is a privilege to be a part of this project. I believe it will boost morale and goodwill to those who have served or are currently serving our country,” Martinez said. “As a veteran myself, I can't express enough how much it means for people to show their gratitude when you have been through so much. Whether active duty or experiencing the sacrifice and separation of being away from your loved ones, voices of support from back home can really make a positive difference.”
U.S. Money Reserve is also committed to gifting a 1 oz. Iwo Jima 75th Anniversary silver bullion coin to every military member or veteran who receives a message of support for the first 10,000 that are delivered.
U.S. Money Reserve is also joining forces with the non-profit organization WISH for OUR HEROES (W4OH) to ensure the “Wings of Gratitude” messages are delivered to military members of the community. W4OH is a national 501(c)(3), dedicated to assisting the men and women of the United States active-duty military and veterans. W4OH focuses on the daily needs and specific requests that can help to improve the lives of military personnel and their families.
