Well, it’s been a crazy week…and it’s only Wednesday! We are gearing up big time for The House That Love Built. Every day is filled with long to-do lists of work, questions to be answered, supplies to be given, contractors and volunteers asking what can they do, how can they help… This is going to be the most amazing Believe With Me project to date!
Our goal is to give the Vaughn’s a new home fully furnished, down to a full refrigerator.
For those of you new to this site, Believe With Me is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope and help to America’s Gold Star families. The House That Love Built is a project that will give Karen and Billy Vaughn, proud parents of Navy SEAL Team VI member Aaron Vaughn KIA Afghanistan August 6, 2011, a new home filled and furnished with love by #gratefulamericans like you and I.
So my partner in crime– Amanda Yannotta–and I spent a few hours at Target registering for all kinds of stuff the house needs. Decor, kitchen items, outdoor furnishings, etc. I’m hoping that those of you who want to give something (other than monetary donation) will visit our registry and purchase something for The House That Love Built.
Please be aware that the big reveal for Karen and Billy Vaughn is Sunday, March 12.
If you purchase something from the registry and there is any doubt as to whether it will be at the home by Friday March 10th, then please choose the in store pick up option at checkout for Target Store #816 located at 2650 NW Federal Highway in Jensen Beach, FL. We need these items– and fast— to help make this beautiful house a home. A home that reflects the love, honor and gratitude of a grateful nation. A home that lets Karen and Billy Vaughn know that their loss is not forgotten and that we are thankful for their sacrifice.
Every time they use their new mixer, set the table with the new dishes, use that pizza cutter, or empty the dishwasher, they will feel the warm hug of #gratefulamericans.
David and I had a fun date night as we purchased almost all the bedding! It was so exciting to know that in 11 days, Karen and Billy would be walking into a new home full of beautiful thankfulness. Join us and please visit our registry here.
And as always…I’m so thankful that you #believewithme. Every purchase for Karen and Billy’s new home, each donation, every share on social media…they bring me such joy and I know Karen and Billy are moved by every act of kindness from such #gratefulamericans!
*Remember: If there is any doubt about the item getting to us by March 10, then please choose IN STORE PICK UP at Target store #816 located at 2650 NW Federal Hwy in Jensen Beach, FL.
