Why Green?

Collaboration with TD Foundation

This month we would like to highlight the TD Foundation.  Since we began working with them this fall, they have provided over $26,000 which we have combined with discounts, in-kind donations and support from our Unmet Needs Fund to facilitate almost $50,000 worth of assistance to 14 Quality of Life Foundation families.  

The TD Foundation provides aid to children directly affected by war in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as to children of wounded warriors and fallen heroes here in the US, and we are grateful for their collaboration and support of the care-giving families we serve.  The majority of their support goes to childcare and school assistance, and all of their funds have improved the quality of life for these courageous children who serve along with their families.

Caregiver's Corner: Please Ask

 A caregiver from Virginia shares her insights and the reasons behind her love of quilting. What would she like to tell the average American? "Please ask...because you cannot 'see' my husband's disabilities does not mean they are not very real." Click here to read the rest of what this amazing caregiver and advocate has to say.

Super FSC Shawn Pharo

Thanks to Shawn’s outreach and the compassion and generosity of the Stafford County Baseball League, a most deserving child will have baseball available to him as long as he wishes with no financial burden on his family.
Two weeks ago, a family currently enrolled in our program shared that her son would like to participate in spring baseball, but the family was concerned about the cost of registration.  The family’s FSC, Shawn Pharo, reached out to the local league to explore options, but didn’t get an immediate response and in order to meet the fast-approaching deadline, sent in a check from QoLF’s Unmet Needs Fund to cover the fees for the minor child so that the account would be settled in time for his first practice.  A few quick days later, Shawn received a response from the local league – not only were they returning our check to us and waiving the registration fee, they offered to waive any future registration fees for this child in recognition and honor of the veteran’s service.

Why Green?

Green is for growth

 
In a month known for leprechauns, shamrocks, and green beverages, perhaps you’ve wondered why Quality of Life Foundation uses green rather than the red, white, and blue traditionally associated with organizations dedicated to American service members and veterans.  The answer?  Our green represents growth, healing, and revitalization – all things we strive to make possible for the caregivers we serve.  When a family member is catastrophically injured, it can be easy for a caregiver to get stuck in a stagnant place, or even survival mode.  Personal growth, interests, and pursuits become low or non-existent priorities.   At Quality of Life Foundation, we do whatever we can to bring some focus, freedom, and fresh new opportunities to caregivers of severely wounded, ill, and injured veterans. 

Slainte, or good health, to you and yours,
