Honoring Those Who Made It Home
The Veterans Crisis Line connects Veterans in crisis and their families and friends with qualified, caring Department of Veterans Affairs responders through a confidential toll-free hotline, online chat, or text. Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online, or send a text message to 838255 to receive confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Support for deaf and hard of hearing individuals is available.
The Alive Tree
The Alive tree is a 10-foot tall outdoor tree sculpture made out of rebar patterned after the tree sculptures at the Prairie Grove National Museum. The sculpture will be made by Hog Eye Welding and will feature leaves out of molded epoxy with the names of the veterans who our donors want to say they are glad they alive to.
This tree will have a special place of honor in front of the Soldier ON office for everyone to see the names of those whose continued life is celebrated and cherished.
The Leaves of Celebration
The leaves of this tree will be leaf shaped ornaments that will carry the name of the veteran who were able to come home and are making a difference in our lives today. When you pledge a recurring donation of $30.42 ($1 per day) you are actually purchasing 2 leaves to honor 1 veteran: 1 leaf to go on the tree and 1 leaf to be mailed to the veteran you are honoring. In addition, we will mail you a free leaf so you can remember this special person every day. Each additional veteran you wish to honor in the same way is only $25 per month.
Our goal is for 100 reoccurring monthly Alive Day Donations. This money will be used to help pay for Soldier ON's Veteran Handler Program.
