Oliver has always had a servants heart. why we didnt start this sooner, is beyond me. #life. Oliver came home the other night with an ”H” stocking from his Breakout (youth group) Leader....which he altered with a piece of tape to read ”Homeless". When I asked him why he did that, his response was...."Mom! I want to raise money and get things for those who don't have much!"
To me, this is no surprise. His tender heart has been charming myself and others since he was able to verbalize his intentions. I feel blessed to be his Mommy and want to do whatever I can to to propel his desire to serve others and grow is heart and faith!
We have chosen to support Desert Vets (mainly in the fox valley) since, as many of you know, Adam (Oliver's dad)
is a 2x veteran and this group of people are near and dear to our hearts! They have sacrificed EVERYTHING to give us EVERYTHING. These soldiers sacrifice so much for us and sometimes at a great cost. Lets help revive them to their full potential and give them reason to live, reason to push on and support!
Oliver is an official Honorary Member of the Desert Veterans of Wisconsin Fox Valley Chapter. It is an honor to be Oliver’s mother, and it was an honor to witness the appreciation and love this organization has for something we deemed “Our duty”. ♥️ Desert Veterans of Wisconsin, Fox Valley Chapter
