‘Tis the Season for Giving: 10 Ways to Give Encouragement, Comfort and Joy

1. Give the gift of a warm home. Help prevent homelessness by donating any amount. Many service members and their families have lost much-needed income as a direct result of their injuries— some have even lost their homes. Your gift will make a difference.

2. Join the Drop and #GiveMe10 Challenge: Do 10 push ups or donate $10 to Semper Fi Fund or America’s Fund. Create and share a video on social media with the hashtag #GiveMe10!

3. Care for a service or therapy dog. Your $25 donation provides food and supplies for a service dog through the purchase of a Petco or PetSmart gift card.

4. Give recovery through sport. Your $100 donation helps support our Team Semper Fi and Team America’s Fund in providing encouragement, motivation, and individual goals through sports.

5. Help an injured service member return to school. Your gift of $200 purchases much-needed books and supplies, helping veterans transition successfully back into their communities.

6. Join the Semper Fi Fund Legacy Society. When you include the Fund in your will or other estate plans, you strengthen Semper Fi Fund’s long-term ability to continue serving those who preserve our freedom.

7. Give the gift of confidence. Your gift of $400 covers the cost of an iPad and cover, and a $15 iTunes card means the ability to purchase applications that help boost memory for a service member with PTSD or TBI who needs help remembering important dates and information.

8. Encourage a child. The children of our injured and critically ill service members need our support. Your $750 donation helps cover the cost of attending the Semper Fi Kids Camp where they will build confidence through activities and develop tools to be successful in school and life.

9. Commit to compete in 2015. Join our Community Athlete team for an upcoming event: Carlsbad Marathon, Army Half Marathon, Cooper River Bridge Run, Marine Corps Historic Half, or the Marine Corps Marathon. For details, email our Race Coordinator (racecoordinator@semperfifund.org) today!

10. Make a New Year’s resolution to remain #AlwaysFaithful all year long. Register on our donate page to make an automatically recurring monthly donation. Join us in our mission to remain Semper Fidelis – always faithful – to our wounded, critically ill and injured service members all year long.
