Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice
While many think of holidays like Valentine’s Day as a day of joy and happiness, there are those who remember a great loss, and the holiday serves as a bittersweet reminder. Believe With Me, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope and help to Gold Star Families, sends a token of their love and affection to widows of fallen soldiers every year, with help from FedEx. The organization wants the widows and families to know that grateful Americans remember them and the sacrifices of their family. Believe With Me has sent gifts to more than 2,000 widows since 2016.
“Because Valentine’s Day is one that is a painful reminder that their loved one is not here to shower them with a gift or affection…as a collective of grateful Americans, we can fill that gap a little with some love in a box letting them know they are not forgotten!”—Lyette Reback, Believe With Me
FedEx transports Believe With Me’s shipments as a part of the company’s FedEx Cares “Delivering for Good” initiative, in which FedEx lends its global network and unparalleled logistics expertise to organizations with mission-critical needs and helps communities before, during, and after crises.
