This was the first year for our Adopt a Hero program which was launched during Operation S.E.N.D. Christmas. We had no idea how it would turn out… but it was worth a try. The final results are in, and thanks to AMAZING people like yourself, it was a huge success! Way beyond our expectations.
A total of 264 Heroes were adopted!
The map above provides a visual of how many states were involved.
The yellow states had 1 adoption each. (So if you adopted and live in a yellow state, you can say you put your state on the map!) The pink states had between 2 and 5 adoptions each. Green states had between 6 and 10 adoptions each. Blue states had between 11 and 15 each. And Kentucky had over 15… (maybe I should have made Ky blue instead of red… hmmm) … Anyways…
A big THANK YOU goes out to everyone who helped make this a SUCCESS. Please note that this map only reflects the Hero adoptions and does not include the many donations that poured in from all over the US. We want to send a huge THANK YOU to anyone and everyone who donated in any way to help make sure each soldier on our list received a Christmas care package!
