We were contacted by Doug Stone, program manager for Snowball Express, and he shared the details of this truly magical event. The Patriot Guard Riders are an integral part of the Snowball Express Program that takes place each December when children from Gold Star families are brought together for 5 fun filled days of dancing, theme parks, sharing and remembrance. Not only does the experience provide tons of fun to these precious kids, it also allows invaluable time to share their thoughts with others who can truly understand how they are feeling after losing something absolutely irreplaceable, their parent. Families walk away from this experience knowing they are not alone and that the sacrifice their loved one made in serving our country is honored.
Each child who attends the Snowball Express receives a leather vest with patches, photos, a dog tag with their name on one side and their fallen parent on the other and now this year, thanks to your generous donations to the Buttons for Change program, they will receive a custom commemorative button!
Team ABM knew immediately that we wanted to be a part of making this event great so we jumped on board to provide the buttons they needed. Seeing the beautiful smiles on these precious faces are all it takes to know this program is more than worthy of all of our support. Thank you to Doug Stone and the Florida Patriot Guard Riders for bringing this program to our attention and allowing us to be a part of something so special.
If you would like to be the first to hear about all of the amazing things happening at ABM including new product launches, sales, coupons and exclusive contest, join us in The Pinback Button Making Community. We hope to see you there but until then, happy button making!
