Special Birthday Wish Request from Hero Hugs Founders – 500,000 Birthday Cards
Hero Hugs is a very special non-profit organization not only because it was founded by one child’s passion to tell troops “Thank You!”, but also because it is run by kids who have sent over 48,000 appreciation packages to deployed troops. Another example of how one person, no matter the age, can make a difference in this world.
Bailey Reese the founder of Hero Hugs and Angela Riseden who is the “honorary” Vice-President are celebrating their 14th birthday’s this month. Bailey’s birthday was on April 3rd and Angela’s is on April 21st and their special birthday wish is to receive 500,000 birthday cards with a $1 donation for Hero Hugs so they can send out 100,000 packages to deployed troops by their 15th birthdays.
According to Bailey:
“We get emails all the time, but people just do not send stamped mail anymore. Kids love getting mail so I think the best birthday present ever would be getting buried in cards. We’d have an awesome birthday, be able to send more thanks to our troops and it would help us reach our goal of 100,000 packages mailed!”
Let’s help make their wish come true! Send a birthday card and $1 donation to:

Happy Birthday Bailey and Angela! You’re both amazing young ladies!
