Thank You Notes

“When no one else was there, you are the only people that come through for not me, but my family! When we had nothing and were about to lose it all you came through for us!!” 

“My wife and I cannot even begin to express our gratitude to you during this difficult time. You have removed an enormous weight of worry from our chest and for that we thank you immensely.” 

“I want to thank you SO SO SO SO SO much. I want to thank you guys again and again. This helps out so much and relieves so much stress. I was getting ready to volunteer to go back overseas.” 

“Thank you for your assistance. That is a huge weight off my shoulders.” 

“It will help us very much with our bills and my wife and I are very excited.” 

“I appreciate all of your dedication and hard work. My family and I are glad to learn that we were not forgotten and help was a phone call away. You have re- established our faith in our National Guard Family. We can’t thank you enough.” “Thank you for everything. My wife wanted me to send along her very sincere appreciation. With all of the struggles lately she was overwhelmed at the idea that our National Guard “Family” could help out in such a wonderful way.” 

“Thank you so much for the approval. It is hard integrating back into civilian life income after having military income for a year. I appreciate your assistance.” “Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you and God bless you.” 

“Thank you so very much. You have no idea how much of a blessing you and your organization is to not only me but other soldiers as well. Thank you again.” “My husband has a passion for what he does for all of US. He is a proud military man and never seeks recognition for all of his contributions to our nation. This has been such a humbling experience for us and we are so grateful. Thank you to everyone involved for making this possible. May God continue to watch over all of you and your family for helping those who are in despair and in a moment of most need. Thank you!” 

“WOW!! That is absolutely awesome!! Thank you so very much, this will definitely relieve some financial stress. Your organization is wonderful. Thank you again.” 

“Please allow me to send my best wishes and regards as well. The service I give to our country is from my heart and something I really want to do. There is nothing better or greater than to have the honor to serve with the best young men and women of this Nation. God bless you and your loved ones!! Thank you very much for your help in time of need. Have a blessed day!” 

“That is exciting news!! I surely appreciate the efforts you and your staff have done. I also thank you for your support in all that you do to support us out in the “I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all at the BRAIVE Fund for providing this financial assistance. It is greatly appreciated and most definitely needed. Again, thank you and your staff for taking the time to review my application. It will help my family in more ways than you can imagine.” 

“It is with the greatest sincerity and humility that I wish to extend my thanks to all of you for being there in this very awkward time. I’ve been fortunate enough to have always low crawled through this type of grief, but this time, the bullets were coming fast and low to the ground. Your assistance will avert a sure disaster, and I can only hope to be able to pass this forward when I find another Soldier in need. Thank you for all that you do.” 

“Wow! I just got back from getting my mail, and I am in tearsÖa check from the BRAIVE Fund for $1,000.00. It was so hard for me to swallow my pride and ask for assistance. I didn’t know how we were going to pay the rent this month, and the fund just paid it for us. We are behind on all our bills and the help this fund just sent us has left me so relieved. Thank you so much. My husband is now out with the Army for one month of training which is good for finances because he will get paid but when he returns home we don’t know how much work his civilian job will have. The Army said he may be able to drive the bus for a month at Camp Blanding which would be good because it is guaranteed work. It is hard enough knowing I am going to be without him for another year.” 

“The financial assistance arrived at the perfect time and we are ever so grateful for all the work you do for the families of National Guard service men and women. Thank you again and God bless.” 

“I would like to thank you for all that you have done for us. This is going to help our family tremendously during these hard times.”

“I would like to thank you for the financial assistance grant. It was truly needed and deeply appreciated.” 

“Thank you so much. You have no idea how much we appreciate this help. As I mentioned in the application, life has been incredibly stressful over the past few months. This financial relief will make dealing with all of the other problems a little bit easier. Words cannot express how much I appreciate this help.” 

“Thanks so much for all you do. We are very grateful to the BRAIVE Fund.” “Thanks for your hard work in making sure my family is OK before I deploy. I really do appreciate it. Happy holidays to you and your family.” 

“Your program is a blessing and very much appreciated.” 

“Thank you so much. God bless your efforts. I will be starting a job at UPS this Monday; wish me luck. Have a safe holiday; and again, thank you so much.” “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the quick response and distribution of the funds during our time of financial need. We are very thankful that there are organizations and people like you all out there willing to give a helping hand in times of need. Have a Merry Christmas.” 

“The extra money allowed us to balance all of the bills a little bit easier. We were able to pay off all of the medical bills and make some needed repairs to the car, and both kids got new shoes. Thank you so much. You have no idea how much this has helped us.” 

“Thank you for assisting us during our time of need. We appreciate all you do for “I have a problem with asking for help. I like doing things on my own but when I couldn’t, I’m glad we have people like you to help get us through who actually care and would do anything they can to help.”
