In August 2011 Spc. Douglas J. Green, while deployed to Afghanistan with the army, was Killed in Action (KIA). He gave the ultimate sacrifice for his country. To honor his life his mother, Suni Chabrow, created the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation. Because Doug loved to receive packages and support from home, Suni made it her mission to provide care packages to members of the Armed Forces when they are deployed overseas.
DJGMF has provided over 5000 care packages to deployed service members. Each box costs about $40 for contents and shipping. We receive most of the food from generous supporters providing physical donations. The challenge we face is the ever increasing cost to ship the boxes once they are filled with care.
On September 11, 2014 the DJGMF is having our 9/11 Care Package event. It is our goal to fill and ship at least 2,000 packages. This is our most aggressive goal, but with support from generous people like you we can hit this number. We already have some food donations coming in and we are working with cooperating stores to collect additional donations. But we are in need of funds for the shipping costs. The current cost to ship each Flat Rate APO box is $14.85. Simple math on sending 2,000 boxes reflects the need for about $30,000 in funds. DJGMF puts on events to raise funds including a 10K race, Boot Camps, Freedom Rides, and golf tournaments, but these events need time to grow in order to provide the funds we need. Which is
why we are asking for your assistance.
DJGMF is a non-profit 501(c)(3), so any donation is tax deductible. We have completed 6 care package events and at all of them local media has been present. Our last event resulted in multiple radio interviews and several television appearances. We proudly mention our sponsors when we have an opportunity in these interviews. We also can provide mention on our website and to our growing number of followers on Twitter and Facebook.
Your generous support of the DJGMF is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact us for donor instructions or with any questions. You can contact Suni directly at 702-845-9171 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to being a strong soldier, Doug was a very giving man, he would be proud to be
memorialized in this way. Please help us keep his memory alive and honor his sacrifice.
