With Memorial Day fast approaching everyone is finalizing their plans for the upcoming holiday weekend. Discussions around the water cooler range from what type of meat their grilling to the big ‘sale’ at their favorite retail outlet. What’s not being discussed is what this weekend is really all about.
However one non-profit has not forgotten and that’s the Memorial Day Foundation. This small, Brooklyn, NY based foundation’s mission is to increase awareness and respect for Memorial Day through a public display of remembrance. That remembrance is placing bouquets on all the War Memorials in Washington, D.C. This beautiful and dignified “Thank You” floral bouquet pays tribute to those who fought and died for us. What a great way to honor these men and women!
So before taking part in this commercialized holiday, remember those who’ve gone before us and consider donating $15 for a bouquet to honor our nation’s war heroes.
