Snowball Express: Children of Fallen Heroes

TO DONATE PLEASE GO TO: snowballexpress.org

The sheer joy on the faces of children being surprised by their mom or dad returning from military deployment is beautiful to see. Unfortunately, other children will never experience that joy because their dad or mom will not be returning home because they made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. These are the children we have the honor to serve.

We’re pleased to bring you this inspiring short film that highlights what makes Snowball Express so important to the families and children of our fallen military. It takes you on a journey that starts aboard one of the ten donated American Airlines charter planes and helps you experience what this all means to our Gold Star families as they are united with others who have experienced a similar loss.

We are asking that you consider a donation that will help bring new, happy memories to the children who have lost a military parent since 9/11/01. Please go to snowballexpress.org to make a tax-deductible gift. We’d also like you to share this video and join us on our Snowball Express Facebook page where we can share more stories with you.

Thanks to Matt Mauch and Bob Vincent with Reel Heroes Media who produced and edited the film, to PSAV for all the great video footage they captured, and to Alin Bijan at Media World production company for his donated time and footage. Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, American Airlines, and all of our other sponsors whose support is essential to our success. You can see our sponsor credits at the end of this film.
