Snowball Express: for children of Military fallen heroes

The sheer joy on the faces of children being surprised by their mom or dad returning from military deployment is beautiful to see. Unfortunately, other children will never experience that joy because their dad or mom will not be returning home because they made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. These are the children we have the honor to serve.

We’re pleased to bring you this inspiring short film that highlights what makes Snowball Express so important to the families of our military fallen. It takes you on a journey that starts aboard one of the ten donated American Airlines charter planes and helps you experience what this all means to our Gold Star families as they are united with others who have experienced a similar loss.

As we come to the end of the year, we are asking that you consider a donation that will help bring new, happy memories to the children who have lost a military parent since 9/11/01. Please go to to make a tax-deductible gift. We’d also like you to share this video and join us on our @Snowball Express Facebook page where we can share more stories with you.
