Today is #GivingTuesday

November 27, 2018 | Folded Flag

Giving Tuesday, celebrated each year the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, is a day where people are encouraged to give, whether it be time, donations or gifts. After taking the time on Thanksgiving with friends and family to realize all you have to be grateful for, Giving Tuesday allows you the opportunity to turn around and give back to your community. Part of Giving Tuesday is also raising awareness for giving to others.  

This #GivingTuesday, we encourage you to give to The Folded Flag Foundation. 100% of all donations go directly to helping the spouses and children of our nation’s fallen heroes secure an educational future. Find out more about how Folded Flag is giving back to the community at: https://www.foldedflagfoundation.org/Mission.

Please share your Giving Tuesday story on social media by using the hashtag #GivingTuesday!

Universal Children's Day

November 20, 2018 | Folded Flag

Today is Universal Children's Day! This holiday was established in 1954 by the United Nations. It is celebrated on November 20 because this date has been significant for children's rights around the world many times. On Nov. 20, 1959, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, which is an international document promoting child rights. Then on Nov. 20, 1989, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a human rights treaty called the Convention on the Rights of the Child which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. 

Universal Children's Day is a day to promote togetherness, awareness and support for improving children's lives across the world. It encourages all to take time to promote the welfare of children on a global scale and work to better the world for children. This year, Universal Children's Day is going blue to make sure all children reach their full potential by being able to attend school safely. 

The Folded Flag Foundation works to help ensure children of fallen heroes reach their full potential by offering educational grants and scholarships. #GoBlue today for Universal Children's Day and donate to The Folded Flag Foundation to support children in Gold Star Families getting an education that will help provide them with a better future.

Happy Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps!

November 10, 2018 | Folded Flag

The Folded Flag Foundation Wishes the United States Marine Corps a Happy Birthday!

Folded Flag greatly values the USMC's service and sacrifice, which is why we do our part to financially support the education of the spouses and children of fallen heroes. We would like to thank all members of the United States Marine Corps  – past and present – for 243 years of service.
