Soldiers' Angels has always emphasized personal support for our military and their families, so we are thrilled to stand with USA Together in this effort
Pasadena, Calif. (PRWEB) July 15, 2008
Soldiers' Angels salutes USA Together for its work in meeting the needs of America's returning Troops by connecting them with Americans across the country who want to show gratitude and offer support.
USA Together (http://www.usatogether.org) was created to connect injured service members and their families who have needs directly with communities across the country on a one-to-one basis. The website is an online community in which injured service members share specific needs with their fellow citizens who want to help, and donors see the impact of their assistance first-hand. Assistance offered and received has ranged from gift cards to legal advice to second-hand office supplies, and more.
"Soldiers' Angels has always emphasized personal support for our military and their families, so we are thrilled to stand with USA Together in this effort," says Patti Patton Bader, founder of Soldiers'Angels. "This website is a wonderful tool for getting Americans of all talents and resource levels directly connected with the people who need them."
"We continued to be stunned by the variety of needs that are shared on the USA Together website by our service members and are enormously encouraged by the generosity of Americans," says Beth Braun of USA Together. "From help with a month's rent to professional advice and even a need for fumigation… these are the practical day-to-day issues that face our military when they return from their tour of duty."
USA Together.org was designed by a group of entrepreneurs in California's Silicon Valley who turned to the resource they know best—technology—to support US military service members who have suffered life-altering injuries during duties in Iraq, Afghanistan and previous conflicts.
"There is a desire on the part of many Americans to help, but they just don't know how," says Dave Mahler, founder of USA Together. "We're trying to use the power of the Internet to connect Americans who want to help those with unmet needs. We're like Craig's List for injured service members and their families. It's remarkable sometimes how little it takes to help someone get their lives back on track."
