Programs

 

The LCPL Jonathan Collins Memorial Fund and Foundation was started in 2005 to keep Jonís memory and the memory of his sacrifice alive. Its mission is to support causes and organizations which reflect Jonathan's character, commitment and compassion.

 

In our early years, the benefactors of our fundraising efforts were primarily local organizations that were integral parts of Jon's life.  Over time, we have expanded our scope to support national programs such as Fallen Heros Project.  Most recently, we have launched the "A Message from the HeartSM" campaign.

 

Listed below are a few of the programs that benefit from the LCPL Jonathan W. Collins Foundation.

 


A Message from the HeartSM

 

A Message from the Heart

In the spirit of providing comfort to children of deploying Marines and military personnel,

 

The LCPL Jonathan W. Collins Memorial Fund

 

is proud to present:

 

A Message from the HeartSM

.

Children will receive a voice chip with a message from their deploying parent. The children will put their parent's voice chip into a bear they make and have the bear for their comfort during their parent's absence.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

DONATE!

$25 WILL PROVIDE ONE CHILD WITH A COMFORT BEAR

Many of these children's parents have suffered numerous deployments. Currently there are no programs of this kind.

Please consider this small gift for the children of our soldiers and Marines whose sacrifice so often goes without notice.


 

 

A Message from the HeartSM Comfort Bears allow the deploying parent to leave a message, from their heart, to their child, that the child can listen to on their time, and on their terms, whenever they need to hear their parentís voice.

 

Upcoming Events:


January 2012

 

 

Hundreds of children from the families of 9th Communications Battalion will attend the A Message from the HeartSM Family Days where they will create their own comfort bear!
