Mission statement to provide both an outlet and resource to the military widows/widowers and children who currently reside in Washington state. Description: We raise funds to help offset potential costs of having organized outings. These outings will be for both kids as well as the adults. Events such as these not only heal but let the spouse know that they are not alone in their grief. A military death is very different than civilian deaths. The spouse not only loses their loved one but also loses their way of life. a life like no other, a military life and their military family. Our goal is to bring back what we once were able to have before military budget cuts affected us and cut the budget of survivor outreach services.In the future we would like to be able to partner with local businesses or individuals who wish to give back to their local widows. Many of the Washington state widows have small children and find it hard to do daily tasks such as mowing the yard, cleaning the gutters or even having some 'me' time. With proper funding and volunteers I see that a strong possibility in our future.Washington warrior widows also has an emergency fund in place to assist with any catastrophe that one of our widows may face such as loss of a home or child.Washington warrior widows is also a place for widows to turn to ask questions and receive resources on what is available to her. This organization is run and managed by military widows who have a desire to help others because we all live the life and know the struggle that we face.To receive funds and donations we plan on holding numerous fundraiser to bring awareness to our organization. These fundraisers will range from third party sales (such as sentsy and thirty-one) to bake sales. We plan on soliciting local businesses as well as citizens. With the funds we raise from the community as well as government grants, we will be able to provide a solid foundation to support the military widows/widowers and their children of Washington State.
