2016 Walk for our Fallen
Dear Families,
our “Walk for our Fallen” will be held at the Highground this year. We’re very excited. The “Walk” will take us pass all the Memorials. It will be in conjunction with the Persian Gulf Tribute Bench/Brick Dedications at the Highground in Neillsville.
Several of our Families will be dedicating such at 1PM on July 23rd, the day of our “Walk.” Our “Walk” will follow at 3PM. The BBQ will start right after the “Walk, about 4PM, for our Families, in the picnic area below the plateau.
We will furnish the meat, condiments, charcoal, buns and eating utensils. For those of you who would be joining us, we ask that you bring a dish to share and your own beverages to drink. There are picnic tables but you may want to bring a chair. There is parking near our tables.
Please let me know if you (and how many others) will be joining us so we purchase enough meat, etc, Contact me at gentlyjs@yahoo.com, and let me know what type of dish you will be bringing. Please do not respond on Facebook, I could miss it.
I will be there from the 19th to the 23rd of July with our dear Col. Margaret Frittitta, you all know her as Marge. We’ll have our tent set up and will be selling items to raise money for our gatherings. Make sure you stop and say I to us.
So, waiting to hear from you…hope you join us. We haven’t done the BBQ at the Highground for several years so we’re looking forward to it. Might become an annual picnic for us>))

Being There Reaching Out: HONORED AS 2013 TOP-RATED NONPROFIT

New GreatNonprofits.org. Award is Based on Positive Online Reviews

Milwaukee, WI, October 23rd, 2013 Being there-Reaching Out announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2013 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.

We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2013 Nonprofit,” says Judith Singer, Founder of Being There-Reaching Out.    We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including working with Hometown Heroes to get the Children of our Fallen to Summer Camp, having our 8th Annual Weekend Retreat for the Families of our Fallen Military, and having our 6th Annual Walk for our Fallen Military at Woods National Cemetery in Milwaukee.  

The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Being There-Reaching Out received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. 

 

While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, Being There-Reaching Out was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year.


 “Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with Being There-Reaching Out have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”

 

Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization.  The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit.  This award is a form of recognition by the community.

Heroes of the Week: Being There-Reach Out Volunteers

dscf0786
Founded in 2004 by Judith Singer, Being There-Reaching Out (BT-RO) is an entirely volunteer-run nonprofit that financially, emotionally and physically assists families of Wisconsin men or women who were lost in or due to war (such as suicide). BT-RO brings together families to create connections and continue the healing process in comfortable, private and safe environments. The organization also holds a Walk for the Fallen every August on Milwaukee’s Veterans Affairs grounds, creates and decorates a float for Milwaukee’s Veteran’s Day Parade each year and hosts regular retreats throughout the state. All BT-RO programs are free of charge with the exception of hotel rooms (if needed), but no family is ever turned away and scholarships are always available. 

“Our volunteers are full time and the fundraising they do is the key to our organization. We have no corporate sponsors, so they come up with the money for everything we do,” Singer says. “The biggest healing is to be with other families. Participants say the BT-RO’s gatherings are like a shot in the arm that keeps them going until they meet up again. I just wish we would have been able to do this for vets of past wars. Ideally, I’d like to see programs like BT-RO become available in every state.”

Currently, the nonprofit is looking for volunteers to join the board of directors, help with fundraising and those with experience in grant writing. Additionally, BT-RO is seeking businesses that are willing to sponsor gathering places for retreats/events. Donations can be mailed to BT-RO at 8353 W. Watertown Plank Road, Wauwatosa, WI 53213. For more information, visit beingtherereachingout.org or contact Singer at 414-988-6225 or gentlyjs@yahoo.com.
