The Big Thank You 2013 Flyer

It is that time of year again!  And we are proud to announce our DanceHearts/Bells of Freedom Program’s annual event “The Big Thank You’ Military Family adoptions that occur each December.

Again, Tanya and I wish to thank you on behalf of the young families that received your very generous gifts of food, toys, clothing, store script and more in the past. Your tangible support, not to mention the emotional support of these enlisted and their families proved to improve morale and confirm your appreciation of their sacrifice to freedom and country.

As you know, The Bells of Freedom program in presenting “The Big Thank You” acts more like a conduit for the community to have a one on one personal connection between community sponsors and the enlisted families referred to our program via commanding officers, base readiness officers, and /or base chaplains. What sets this event apart from other programs is the one on one meeting that takes place between sponsor and the military family. There is no better sight or feeling than being able to meet your ‘adopted’ family, and to have a face t face opportunity to thank our enlisted men, women and families for their service to our country and preservation of freedom….showing appreciation in a very tangible way.

Testimonies from the enlisted men and women, commanding officers and Chaplains confirm that the support of DanceHearts and Bells of Freedom have proven to uplift the spirits and boost the morale of our enlisted and reaffirms that the sacrifices these young men and women of our U.S. armed forces do not go unnoticed. Dance Hearts/Bells of Freedom, is a recognized 501 (c) 3 Public Charity and 98% of donated funds go directly to enlisted men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces. Dance Hearts has no paid Directors, staff or volunteers.

Last Year’s (2012) Big Thank You Event

Check out the Blog Post and Pictures from last years event, and the video below.

We currently have 80 young military families based at Camp Pendleton that desperately need some support and tender loving care. Please contact us to receive your ‘adopted’ family today!

While we LOVE our family sponsors..if you should know of a company, corporation or organization that wishes to contribute cash to feeding our military and sponsor families during “The Big Thank You”, we welcome cash donations. The cost of providing a ‘meal to share with’ our enlisted is about $1,100.00 per 100 people. Last year we fed 275 enlisted families and their 125 sponsor family members due to generous donations made by concerned community leaders and businesses. We hope we will be able to do the same this year. Donations may be made through our web site or by mail to:

DanceHearts, Bells of Freedom Program
12750 Carmel Country Road, Suite 103
San Diego, CA 92130.

We look forward to speaking to each of you in the next days. But, please don’t hesitate to call us at 858-792-1003 with any questions you or your family may have. Continue your Holiday tradition. Adopt a Family!

Peace and Blessings,
