R.A.G.S. to wishes

Random Acts of Gratitude to Wishes (R.A.G.S.) system is a unique program which makes you part of the solution in providing much needed support to our American Heroes. R.A.G.S. to Wishes calls you to action by showing your Gratitude and Kindness to others just because it’s the right thing to do! We created R.A.G.S. to Wishes to achieve three great things. 1) Make it easy for YOU to show your Gratitude to anyone. 2) Share you story and call others to do the same, and…3) Help us grant wishes for our Veterans, Active Military, Their Families and our First Responder Community. As each person shares their Gratitude and Stories with others, they register their own Random Acts of Gratitude, share their stories and track their kindness on our Global Random Acts of Gratitude map. Make a tax deductible donation now and Be the Change, pay your Gratitude forward and help us change lives and grant wishes for our American Heroes. With your generous support, half of your Challenge Coin tax deductible donation will be shared by us directly with our Heroes in need. All the good deeds to Heroes in need will be captured in pictures and videos and shared on our website.
