Tis’ the season to be giving. It is a huge part of the holidays. What better way to give than by giving back to those who have fought and are fighting for our freedom. If you’d like to thank a Veteran or military person in active duty, here are some ways you can show your support to our troops!
Donate Frequent Flier Miles – Many of our service men and women are unable to afford the cost to travel home to visit loved ones during the holidays. Hero Miles Program, administered by the Fisher House Foundation, provides free airline transportation to family members (or close friends) to see their loved ones!
Sponsor a Service Dog for a Veteran – Light Up To Live partners up with The Patriotic Service Dog Foundation (PSDF), a nonprofit organization that is supported by the generosity of individuals, foundations, corporations and other organizations in their mission to provide highly trained service dogs at NO COST to Veterans.

Send a Care Package – Boots for Troops is a unique one of a kind custom care package program that delivers care packages to our troops and even helps them get back home!
Share Their Stories – The Veteran History Project of the American Folklife Center collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war
Flags of Valor – Give a gift that also gives back. You can purchase a Flags of Valor from Light Up To Live. You can honor a member of the military with an American-made, handcrafted wood Flags of Valor with a Valor plaque. These beautiful works of art are created by a company that is Veteran owned and operated. The funds raised not only support Light Up to Live, but each flag also helps this company employ Veterans, as well as raise money for Veteran and first-responder charities.
Donate – The Light Up To Live Foundation puts polychromatic light therapy systems in the hands of members of the U.S. Armed Forces and veterans suffering with the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress, TBI, pain and depression. We connect and support like-minded organizations, charities and services that benefit this community.
