I just heard about the Snowball Express, so I don’t have any little blurb to tell you.  I’ve swiped the following verbage right from their site.  One small note:  Any organization that does something to help the children of deceased military personnel has got to be a fantastic organization.  I am grateful every day that my father returned from Vietnam and I didn’t become a statistic.

Snowball Express started in early 2006 with a simple idea: Provide hope and new memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11.

America should honor and pay tribute to the children of those military fallen heroes who have died while honorably serving since 9/11. In December of 2006, nearly 900 family members from all across America and the world gathered in Southern California for an unforgettable holiday gathering. Kids and widows discovered they weren’t alone. And they found they weren’t forgotten.

It was a totally volunteer effort which came together in just a few months to create the largest all-expense-paid gathering for the families of our fallen warriors since 9/11.
