Do The Right Thing Announces: "Adopt - A - Military Family" for Thanksgiving Project

Last night on Do The Right Thing Radio during our Thursday Support our Troops program, I announced that we were going to encourage our listeners, friends, readers, and supporters to "Adopt - A - Military Family" for Thanksgiving this year.

Our goal is to provide 100 active duty military families with a complete Thanksgiving dinner, and hopefully this will also lead to a similar program for the Christmas season.

Here is how we would like to encourage you to participate:

  1. Commit to participate by replying in the comment section here at Do The Right Thing, or by emailing hopecyberpastor@gmail.com .
  2. Choose a family that you would like to support. If you don't already know one, Rev Don suggested going to the local recruiting center, military base, or veterans centers.
  3. Inform both the family that you have chosen to adopt of your intentions, and inform us of the last name of the family you will be supporting. (This isn't for anything other than to help you be accountable to your commitment).
  4. Purchase everything "your family" will need for Thanksgiving Dinner and deliver the food to them yourself if at all possible. (You will be blessed beyond belief when you see the smile on the faces of those you are helping).

Some suggestions:

  • Don't just buy a gift certificate or gift card. By you purchasing the needed items, you will be removing a task that your family will not have to do themselves. We want to help them as many ways as possible.
  • Use this opportunity to get to know your family and they will know for the future that there is someone in their local community who they can turn to who they will know that loves to Support our Troops.
  • Pass this along to friends and relatives - our goal is 100 families, but who knows God may decide on 1,000 families or even more.
  • Pray about the program - not where it's coming from, but the effect it will have on our troops and their families.
  • Post this on your blogs and other places on the web.

We will be posting those participating and their adopted family last names here at Do The Right Thing.

God Bless you!
