**UPDATE 3/13: Amazing News! Highland Capital Management is matching up to $1,000,000 of donations made to this fundraiser! Together we can turn Myles' $20 into a $2,000,000 blessing for the children of fallen soldiers. Donate here and spread the word. Let's make a miracle happen.
Let's help 8 year old Myles and his sister "pay it forward" to military families across the country!
You may have seen the viral story about Myles, the 8 year old son of a fallen military hero who turned $20 into a priceless gift for a soldier in Ohio. His compassion moved the nation to tears and went viral on CBS and Buzzfeed. I live only a couple zip codes from Myles and his sister Marlee, and know them from the time I wrote an article about their family. Their mother Tiffany phoned me this morning with an amazing story: she told me that her children were inspired by the support around the nation, and wanted to turn the outpouring of love into a blessing for military families.
In an staggering act of selflessness, Myles and his family have turned down donations to their own family, and instead have created this fundraiser for the Snowball Express. It's a holiday retreat for children of fallen soldiers and makes the holidays so much brighter for thousands of children like Myles and Marlee across this great country. Their funding is falling dangerously low and Myles and Marlee want to save it for years to come! Let's honor Myles and his father's ultimate sacrifice by helping little Myles fulfill his dream of donating $10,000 to Gold Star children. If we can raise $10,000 for the Snowball Express, we’ll be touching the lives of thousands of military families.
100% of your donation is tax-deductible, and all funds will go directly to the Snowball Express. :)
UPDATE: Crowdtilt has verified this campaign and will handle the disbursement of funds directly to the nonprofit: https://twitter.com/Crowdtilt/status/440957260324286465
