The House That Love Built
In 2008, America was hit hard with a recession that caused many of us to suffer losses financially. In the year 2011, Karen and Billy Vaughn lost their home, their business, and their son Navy Seal Aaron Vaughn (KIA Afghanistan).
And y’all, that just ain’t right.
After news aired about An American Gold Star Christmas, the most #gratefulamericans from all across the country flooded us with messages of wanting to bring hope and help to our Gold Star families…So we took the opportunity to do just that!
We got a new home for the Vaughn family!
Yes, I’m crazy.
Yes, that’s huge and outrageous and at one time seemed impossible.
But just 24 hours before The Today Show story aired, BelieveWithMe had 300 kids that needed sponsorship for Christmas. We needed supplies for wrapping. We needed shipping. And you ALL jumped in and made it happen! The Vaughn’s were the second recipients of an extreme home makeover…last August we renovated an existing home for another local Gold Star family who were gracious enough to give so many fellow friends and citizens the opportunity to say thank you for their sacrifice!
I’ve seen thousands of believing and #gratefulamericans jump on board and help purchase the Vaughn’s a new home…and I’ve witnessed a community full of grateful Americans who are ready, willing, and able to do the same for other Gold Star families!
Donating ANY amount — $5, $10, or even more — moved us closer to this audacious goal of giving a new home to Karen and Billy Vaughn. One of America’s Gold Star families that has not only given us their son (a decorated Navy Seal warrior, son, brother, father, and friend to so many), but continued to give to other Gold Star families through their Gold Star child mentorship program at Operation 300. Make a donation today. We can’t bring back the precious life of the son that they’ve lost, but we can let them know that America remembers and that we are a grateful nation. And we can continue to bring hope and help to other Gold Star families in the same way.
Help us by praying, sharing, and donating. Any amount is an investment into the lives of our families of the fallen. It’s an investment into the teens and families that will be serving tirelessly to restore a Gold Star family into a new or renovated home. It’s an investment into making America #goldstarstrong!
#TheHouseThatLoveBuilt is your opportunity to give back to Gold Star Parents AND help the entire community as we have hundreds of volunteers working to renovate the home, landscape, paint, furnish and decorate this incredible gift of gratitude! When you give to The House That Love Built, you are giving hundreds of high schoolers, college kids, young families, veterans, and other Gold Star families the opportunity to serve together and grow in love and mutual respect! C’mon and #believewithme!
