Authors4 Veterans Giveaway

This past August, I received a FB message from Patti Fiala and Staci Joy Netzel, two of my Wisconsin writer friends. They wanted to start a fundraiser for the Fisher House in Milwaukee.

Fisher House is a home away from home for veterans’ and military families who need temporary housing while their loved one receives care at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center. Fisher House is here to help families get through tough timesFisher_House_WI_4C_LOGO_100x100px by offering comfortable accommodations in a home-like environment at no cost to the guests.

Patti and Staci wanted to collect enough items to fill thirty thermal care bags to deliver to families at the Fisher House this month, plus enough left over for for two bags for a reader event. As someone who comes from a strong military background, how could I say no? Many times we think of only the military person who has been injured, but not how it affects the family as they recuperate. So, we sent socks, books, snacks, coloring

books, crayons, pencils, pens, notebooks, and anything we could think of to make the families’ stay more comfortable. Some of these families stay for a few days, and some several months.
