American Sweetheart

Believe With Me sends Valentine's Day gifts to the widows of fallen soldiers every year. It's a small token of our love, honor, and appreciation for their continued sacrifices on our behalf.

Remembering America's Sweethearts on Valentine's Day

Yearly serving more than 1000 widows of war, Believe With Me seeks to bring a small amount of joy and remembrance to our Gold Star Wives for Valentine's Day, and gives our Student Ambassadors an opportunity to show honor by serving our Gold Star Community for this project. Valentine's Day is painfully difficult when your spouse has passed away. Believe With Me uses our Student Ambassadors to prep, wrap and pack gifts to our Gold Star widows.

How it works

"It will be 9 years on Valentine's Day that I lost my husband, my best friend, and my soul mate. Valentine's Day is an extremely hard day for my son and I. This is my first year being a part of Believe With Me, and I was reminded that 'I AM LOVED.' From the bottom of my heart, thank you for putting some light on a very difficult day. A BIG thank you for all that you do and touching my family's life the way you do!!"
–Jill Folts
