Our blog focus today is on the Wreaths Across America Giving Campaign & July 2018 Letter Writing Blog Recap.
Wreaths Across America Giving Campaign
If you are new to my blog, I’ve been covering Wreaths Across America for four years now (please see some of the link listings below at the end). Christmas 2015 was my first one without my Dad. It was very special having him remembered with a wreath that year. My continued thanks to Ellen, one of My Three Muses here at AnchoredScraps for her continued volunteering with them.
Even though their Giving in July campaign is wrapping up, they are continuing to collaborate with five partner charities that “Remember, Honor, & Teach EVERYDAY”.
- “The Maine Troop Greeters & Museum (AnchoredScraps Thank you Maine Troop Greeters! 7-03-2015);
- The Gary Sinise Foundation;
- America’s Mighty Warriors;
- Travis Manion Foundation; and
- Honor and Remember.
By the way, for every $15 wreath sponsorship, these “DO GOOD TWICE” partnerships provide a wreath on a veteran’s grave and a $5 “pay-it-forward” payback to the nonprofit.
Next is the daily blog recap for the month which I’m listing below in summary format. It is great for having a look back at the month in case there are any posts wanting to revisit, or may have missed and can now catch up. The reference listing shows the image header, date, title with links, and daily blog post number. We began the month with post #1222 and today is #1252, with pausing to celebrate #1,250 on Sunday!

Wrapping Up & Looking Ahead
Thank you for continuing to be on this daily blog journey with me.
The month of August is going to be very busy. I’m striving to be posting earlier in the day this next month now that all of the steady stream of visitors this month is over.
Here’s to writing more letters and making the time to share our sentiments with loved ones.
