The Big Thank You 2013
December 8, 2013 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Join the Staff, Families and Friends of Bells of Freedom and Begin a NEW Tradition for the Holidays.
ADOPT A MARINE FAMILY FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Now through December 1st with delivery at Camp Pendleton on Sunday, December 8th.
We’re heading into the Holiday Season and there’s no better time to join DanceHearts and the Bells of Freedom Program to “adopt” military families from Camp Pendleton in what is called “The Big Thank You”. Your personal feelings aside, there are still thousands of our men and wom…en serving in the military here and abroad in order to secure the freedom of Americans everywhere in the world. Many of the families of our military men and women are struggling every day just to ‘make ends meet’. By “adopting” military families during the Holiday season, it is our way of saying “Thank You” for the sacrifices made by these brave men and women (and their families) currently serving in the United States Armed Forces.
The families we ‘adopt’ vary in race, ethnicity, culture, and religion. Their commonality is that they are all employed by the United States Armed Forces and that they are families that need an emotional, spiritual and financial boost.
Can’t adopt an entire family? You can still participate. Ask us how we can match you with another sponsor family and ‘adopt’ a family together. Cash donations of any denomination go a long way when totaled up at the end of the day. Cash donations allow the Bells of Freedom program to help just one more military family in need. We also gladly accept gift cards to grocery, gas, clothing stores, etc. All gift cards need be received by Wednesday, December 4th to be organized for delivery.
We welcome all sponsors no matter how great or small to accompany us as we caravan to Camp Pendleton to make our delivery on Sunday, December 8th @ 1:00 pm.

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 sponsored 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,
