The 2014 Send a Soldier To Disney Raffle Is Now Closed

Congratulations to this year's raffle winner - Colleen DeBoer

Thank you to everybody who bought and sold raffle tickets.  The 2014 Raffle was a huge success!

 
Together We Raised Over $40,000!!!

In addition to raising $40,000, several people donated their own timeshares for the soldiers to use!  Which means we will be able to send at least 10 families to Disney!

All of the money raised is earmarked in a restricted account with the Graybeards and is used solely for the purpose of providing wounded soldiers and their families with a special trip to DisneyWorld. Every effort is made to stretch your donations as far as possible.

 

I encourage you to visit our Soldiers to Disney page as photos and thank you notes from the soldiers & their families will be posted as they are received. 

 

Thank you again for your support of this wonderful event!

Update on Graybeards Sandy Relief Effort
As of 3-11-13, the Graybeards have received over 1000 donations. We have received donations of varying amounts from all over the country, from a child’s donation of $10 to the donation of the Robin Hood Foundation of $75,000. It’s true that every dollar counts! 
Fortunately we have collected and distributed $1.1 million to date. The need to help people impacted by Sandy is still great. We have a number of open requests for assistance and hope to receive additional contributions.
Our commitment has and is to get these funds into the hands of Sandy flood/fire victims as quickly and efficiently as possible. We are very proud to report that we have helped over 1000 families who are trying to rebuild their lives.
100% of the monies donated to our Sandy relief effort has and will be given directly to those in need. All of the administrative costs of the Sandy fund have been paid by the Graybeards.
Requests for assistance keep pouring into our office. At this time we are unable to provide financial aid to these people. We are however, keeping the requests on file. As new donations are received, we will review the requests and attempt to provide assistance to those in need.
In the meantime, the Graybeards want to thank everyone who has contributed to our organization. By giving to the Graybeards you have demonstrated a trust in us and inspire us to continue our mission of “helping our neighbors in their time of need”. We take this trust very seriously. We are committed to continue to get your donations to the hundreds of needy families affected by Sandy.
