Guest Cari Johnson, founder of A Dollar To Care, visits Military Mom Talk Radio to talk about her newly formed non profit organization working to assist families of soldiers who have been, or in the process of, being charged with crimes during combat.
Many people do not realize that legal fees are all paid for by the soldier. They also lose their BAQ (Basic Allowance For Housing), yet many still have small children and wives to support. The younger soldiers who were perhaps living at home prior to their deployment are faced with the similiar financial circumstances however most of the financial responsibility is falling on the parents and grandparents.
A Dollar To Care was formed to assist these families who are mentally and emotionally strained, and financially in debt. They receive requests for basic needs such as food or assistance with monthly bills, transportation expenses, and emergency funds for repairs or replacements of major appliances, vehicles, and their homes.
The last thing these warriors’ families need right now is to wonder how they will pay their bills next month. One dollar donations make an incredible difference in the lives of these families. For more information, visit www.adollartocare.org.
