Saving Memories Forever Announces First Community Outreach: American Widows Project


Saving Memories Forever Announces First Community Outreach: American Widow Project

Saving Memories Forever proudly announces its first community effort. Starting February 11, 2013 Saving Memories Forever will sponsor a fundraising campaign on behalf of the American Widow Project. The fundraiser will run through the end of March 2013.

The American Widow Project (AWP) is a non-profit organization that provides military widows with peer-to-peer support as they rebuild their lives. AWP places an emphasis on healing through sharing stories, tears and laughter. They host a Hotline service and write a monthly newsletter. They also hold multiples events each year where widows come together to enjoy life the way they did when their spouse was still alive.

The program is available to all military wives whose spouses have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, an estimated 3,200 widows. The American Widow Project was created in 2007 by Taryn Davis whose husband was killed in Iraq. Taryn has received numerous awards. She was named a Top 10 CNN Hero Honoree in 2011. She has also been honored as one of Newsweek Magazine’s “150 Women Who Shake the World”, Diller-Von Furstenburg Foundation’s “People’s Voice” Award Winner, and L’Oreal Woman of Worth Honoree in 2010.

The American Widow Project and Saving Memories Forever share a common goal: keeping alive the memories and stories of American soldiers, husbands, and oftentimes fathers. Saving Memories Forever honors the service of the men and applauds the life-affirming efforts of their wives. Saving Memories Forever welcomes the wives and looks forward to the years ahead as our service helps give them comfort and joy.

As part of this campaign, SMF will donate 20 Premium Subscriptions. In addition, AWP will receive 40% of the profits from people who subscribe to Saving Memories Forever using the special fundraiser Promo Code AWP213.
