Favorite Charity: That Others May Live Foundation
|When my husband, Mark, retired from the USAF (United States Air Force) he got a super job with a company whose president is the founder of the non-profit organization, That Others May Live. When I first heard of the charity, my heart skipped a beat and I got goose-bumps. The charity provides post-secondary educational assistance to children who lost a parent in a USAF Personnel Recovery training or operational mission. A very worthy cause. I provided the president with my resume and shortly after, became the first full-time employee of the foundation in existence since 2002.
Mark worked in the search and rescue/personnel recovery career field for 21 years and is my inspiration for my involvement with this charity. Because of his career, we have come to know many of the families affected with the loss of a parent, which makes my job very personal and meaningful. I find it important to give back to the families who have lost someone while they attempted to save a life. That is incredibly inspirational to me.
