Finally, some good news to report.

Earlier this month, I noted the awful plight of Linda Ferrara, the soldier’s mom whose blankets for the troops and tons of other homemade charitable items were stolen by soulless jerks.

The update on an outpouring of good will and donations:

Update: Donations for wounded Soldiers stolen from Gold Star Mom
“Did you hear about the Mom whose donations for the wounded Soldiers were stolen? Well, that’s me!”

– Linda Ferrara, while chasing a WalMart manager through the store to ask for a donation.

Gotta love it!

Linda related the WalMart incident last night on the phone as we spoke about the latest on her efforts to replace the stolen donations she had collected for the patients here at Landstuhl. (Back story here, keep scrolling at that link.) And yes, the manager did make a contribution.

Since the story about the theft broke she has received over 400 emails, many donations in kind, and about $25,000 in cash. She’s told everyone that this is (unfortunately) an ongoing project, so if they are unable able to help now they may do so in the future.

Linda has been busy purchasing items from our wish list with the funds. She’s also recruited two new groups of “blanket ladies” and bought fleece for them. She and her family have already packed up lots and lots of boxes and brought them to the Soldiers’ Angels warehouse for shipment.

On top of everything else, Patti of Soldiers’ Angels has arranged for Linda to fly here to meet with us in Germany (loaded up with even more donations from SA) and distribute some of the items to our wounded warriors personally.

God bless you, Linda, and Soldier’s Angels!
