Making the Holidays Special for Military Families, One Tree at a Time

Nov 10, 2016

For the 12th consecutive year, the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation is joining forces with FedEx for special deliveries to America’s service members and their families through the Trees for Troops program.

Thanks to the generosity of tree farmers across North America, more than 18,000 real Christmas trees will be donated and delivered to close to 65 military bases during the busy weeks leading up to Christmas.

Minter’s Farm, out of Fayetteville, Georgia, is one of over 100 farms participating in the program this year.

For Minter’s Manager Stephanie Adamek, it’s a very special time of year, “It’s great to give back to somebody who has done so much for us.  I mean, they’re our heroes.”

Seeing the Light: Eight Days in China On Board a Flying Eye Hospital

Oct 11, 2016

As I watched the last piece of surgical equipment being loaded onto the MD-10 aircraft, I was struck by the mission before me—watching first hand as a portable hospital took shape, one that will fly to people in need instead of the other way around.

This is an opportunity for me to witness Orbis’ sight-saving operation in person aboard a flight to China and on the ground there, and to learn more about how the organization transforms the lives of people facing blindness who would not otherwise have access to eye care.

More than 285 million people are visually impaired, and 4 out of 5 suffer from preventable conditions. Ninety percent of these people live in developing countries where they can’t access sight-saving treatments that many take for granted in the United States.
