Organizations We Support

Since beginning this endeavor, we have had the honor to meet some wonderful people, and have become aware of organizations who support our military and their families.  Most recently, we lost one of our dear friends in Iraq.  Three small children and a very strong wife were left behind to make a new future.  The outpouring of love shown to them gives us hope that we as Americans really are living up to the ribbon magnets we have on our cars.

Angels for Soldiers

bkbirdwell@cp-tel.net

There are angels among us and Lulu Birdwell is one of them. She has made almost 10,000 camouflage, tied yarn angels for men and women serving in the military both at home and overseas. Before Lulu was stricken with muscular dystrophy she was, in her own words, very active and a workaholic. In 2003 she was feeling down about her condition and asked God to give her something to do or take her home. Later that day while taking a nap, she had a dream about these yarn angels. The dream even showed her how to make them and that they were to be sent to soldiers. To date she has made 9,800 angels. Each of these angels are sent with a prayer and a promise of continued prayer for their safety. Lulu has paid for most of the supply and shipping costs herself and occassionally receives donations. She has received many letters, emails and even phone calls from soldiers who wish to express their appreciation. One such call came from a soldier in Iraq. Derrick called her and asked her to pray with him before he left for a dangerous mission. While on this mission his unit came across a bag on the road that turned out to be a bomb that had not detonated. After this, Derrick asked her to send more angels because everyone wanted one in their Humvee. Lulu and Derrick stayed in touch via email after this. When several weeks passed without hearing from him, she began to worry. Finally, when she did hear from him he explained that while in Baghdad a car pulled up behind his Humvee and exploded. Several civilians were killed and a ball of fire came through the Humvee. He and other soldiers were badly burned, but no fatalities. Once Derrick was well enough to leave the hospital, he decided to go see the remains of the Humvee. Everything had been burned and melted except for Lulu's angel. Lulu says there is no power in the angels. They are just made from yarn. The power comes from the Sender of her dream, the One to whom she prays to each time one of her angel gifts are sent out. "He asks me to make them and He sends me the names; it's all up to Him," she said. As a result of her illness her relationship with God has become much stronger. She says that if it wasn't for her illness, she would have never began making the angels or the friendships.
