Background A Soldier's Child Birthday Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to keeping the legacy of the fallen soldier alive by celebrating the birthday of his or her children. U.S. Marine Staff Sgt. Marcus Andrew “Marc” Golczynski wrote in a letter to his mother shortly before he died in combat: "We are warriors… we fight and sometimes die so that our families don’t have to… Stand beside us." As citizens of the United States of America, we are forever indebted to the men and women of our military who so unselfishly gave their lives to protect our freedoms. It is our objective through “A Soldiers Child” to communicate to the children left behind that the memory of their parent will not fade away. We want them to know that there are many Americans who are forever grateful for their parent’s sacrifice. It is with humbleness in heart that we aim to honor the memory of the parent by giving a meaningful gift on the birthday of his/her son or daughter.
Impact A Soldier's Child currently serves over 2,500 children around the country. In the past year, we have implemented the Sponsor A Child sustained giving program.  This initiative along with increased community support has resulted in a 98% increase in revenue this year. We anticipate serving 3,000 children by the end of 2016.
Needs 1. Work with committed individuals or organizations to organize and implement fundraising events on behalf of ASC
2. Obtain a facility to store materials and to host program events like birthday gift wrapping sessions
3. Recruit corporations to hold ASC events including shopping/wrapping birthday events
4. Become a household name as an organization that cares for the children of our fallen heroes

Description The ASC Journey Camp experience is held each summer at Deer Run Camps and Retreats in Thompson's Station, TN. Journey Camp gives ASC children the opportunity to come together for a week of recreation and relationship-building where they form life-long bonds with other fallen soldiers’ children. Realizing they are not alone in their grief, gives the children courage and strength to carry on. ASC’s Journey Camp is nationally recognized. The Associated Press created a documentary on how children cope with the loss of a parent to war and used the Journey Camp experience as its subject.
